      Sterling Vitamins, an online vendor advertising weight loss supplements, particularly "KETO FAT LOSS PILLS" at, has raised suspicions among several customers. The company's advertisements promote the pills using celebrity endorsements like Kate Ritchie and Jessica Mauboy. Upon ordering, customers frequently found discrepancies between what they thought they were purchasing and what they were actually charged for. Many expected to buy "gummies" but ended up being charged for and sometimes receiving "capsules" instead, often at much higher costs than anticipated.

      Several customers have experienced issues with their orders, including being overcharged, receiving the wrong products, and facing difficulties obtaining refunds. The company's customer service is reported to be less than satisfactory, with some buyers mentioning that their refund requests are met with delays, auto-responses, or no response at all. A few did receive partial refunds, but many remain dissatisfied. Some users even went to the lengths of involving their banks to resolve the payment disputes.

      Scamdoc's trustworthiness report at suggests that Sterling Vitamins may be affiliated with an Australian company known for generating numerous complaints. For those who've faced payment issues, it is recommended to explore the Chargeback procedure for VISA or Mastercard payments. Useful resources for Chargeback procedures include... Read more

      I ordered 3 Bottles of gummies. Received 5 bottles of capsules which I was charged for.., didn’t authorise that! I have returned them with correct form and photo of receipt with tracking number and just keep getting auto responses saying they didn’t receive the file!! It’s an I causions in the email. I’ve had 13 emails with them proving requested info and still gave not had a refund which is guaranteed as part of the purchase… 30 day money back guarantee. Can you hrl

    • pjstevo 08/20/2023 at 11:47 PM

      I did actually get a refund. I stayed on the online chat until it was processed. I told then that I was on the phone to my bank to cancel the payment as it was still pending. They tried to tell me that the items had shipped and that I needed to return them. When I told them I work for the NSW Government (which I do) then they put though the refund. It's a total scam and the pills themselves probebly are nothing but sugar gummies.

    • cheezed off 09/07/2023 at 12:00 AM

      yes this is a scam i have the same problem they reckon they refunded money but hasnt been in bank,then when i report she wanted me to send bank details to prove i hadnt got it huuum im nt that stupid..i too ordered gummies and received capsules,now i cant get any replys from phone nor emails or 24/7 chat .

    • honestlyplz 09/10/2023 at 04:22 AM

      Scam, I ordered the 3 bottles of gummies and then had an email to say I will receive capsules. I called the number on the site supposed to be in Australia. I asked for a refund and then was told to wait for the order to arrive and to send it back with the form that they emailed me. I don't understand why they could not just cancel the order and refund me my money straight away, they said they had refunded half the money, but it won't show up for a few days! This is so wrong, not happy at all.

    • hatescammers 09/12/2023 at 11:49 PM

      I thought I was ordering one bottle and it was actually 5 bottles! They did refund half of it and told me to keep the product. Nothing has arrived yet. Been more than a month. I asked for a refund due to no product arriving and they told me it would be processed in 3-5 business days but nothing. Now they're giving me the run around and said they already paid the refund and want me to keep the product (which never arrived). thanks!

    • Ezzy 09/13/2023 at 10:16 PM

      I ordered 3 Bottles of gummies, but the receipt shows capsules and was charged twice the advertised price. I have tried the chat but it always saying "all our agents are busy"

      Tried email still no luck. Defiantly a fraud, not sure what to do next

    • Roseline 09/15/2023 at 12:29 AM

      Yes I think I got scammed too. Ordered the same 3 bottles on the 13/09 and was supposed to get 2 free. They were quick to charge my account $339.74. As soon as I realised I made the mistake (which was within seconds) I called the number (which by the way is registered in Adelaide but comes out in America and after three or more attempts eventually come out to an Indian person all the time). They told me they cannot refund me the full amount as the order has already been processed. The gave me half a refund BUT not product!!!!! I have lodged a dispute with them and the bank but not holding my breath

      To whom it may concern, i purchased an item i saw on Facebook yesterday which were Keto Active Gummies. After the purchase I was charged $339. Once the money was taken out of my account I looked into these gummies a bit more to see they don't work and they used Jacky O to sell his product however Jacky O has come forward to state she would never be responsible in selling those Keto Gummies.

      They're using celebs to sell their product (using fake profiles) I'm really worried as I have paid wit...

        Yes I also got scammed by this same company on the 12 September when I realised I had made a mistake. I tried to cancel my order but they told me that they couldn't cancel it and refused to give the money back. They did transfer half of the money but I am still waiting for the other half. There is no product, no tracking number.
        Today (18 September 2023) I called again requesting my tracking number and they told me it left the warehouse in QLD but no tracking number was told to call back on Thursday for a tracking number. If no tracking number found then the goods are presumed lost in transit hehehe then I will get a full refund....I doubt it very much!!! Big scam

      There was as advert from Sterling Vitamins using Jessica Mauboy as the celebrity person that used these slimming gummies and lots so much weight. The add had Jessica testifying that she lost so much weight (which looked very real but so does photoshop).
      Of course I fell for the ad. Clicked on the link and placed the order. It the order. It said buy 3 bottles and get 2 free. Which is a load of rubbish because they charge you for the full price of 5 bottles at the amount of $339.74 immediately.
      When I realised my mistake (which was within 2 seconds) I immediately called the number on the email +61 8 7089 7222 (which is linked to somewhere in Adelaide). to cancel this order I was told I could not cancel the order because it has already been processed. Like how ??? within in .001 of a second. They told to me they will refund me half (which I got back to my account) but I wanted the full amount refunded. Could not do that!!!!! No tracking number given. Cannot get through the above phone number which always comes out in America and today it came out in England. TOTAL RED FLAGS!!!! I AM SO DUMB FOR FALLING FOR THIS.

      • Alex 10/27/2023 at 08:50 PM

        Hi Everyone, once I purchased and found I was mislead on the price, the day after I chatted with the support team for a refund (please be patient as you can!). After many counter offers, they accepted I wanted a refund and sent me as RMA form via email (note the RMA form said 30 day return guarantee though chat advised was 60 days). The pills took a week to arrive, I repacked and sent back to specified address with pictures and tracking etc etc. I chatted to support not long after, though the parcel had arrived at the post office and not collected, they processed my refund on the day. I now have my complete refund, though I might change my credit card as they now have my details, though they said I taken of the rebill list for pills every month, can't say I trust them fully. Anyway, just letting you know my story. If you need help I'm here to help best as I can if you reply to my comment here.

        Oh and just to note how I got targeted. The Veto pills site was an advertised link off the website, so though is a legit website, the advertisements you encounter no way means it is legit so please be careful on any website regardless how much you trust or been to many times, do not trust advertisements....please be very vigilant.......


      • Roseline Landsberg 10/28/2023 at 12:07 AM

        Hi Alex thank you for your message.
        pleased to hear you got a full refund. I have the tablets (not the gummy bears I ordered) still with me, which is not what I ordered. It is such a process for me to return them because I teach in outback Australia and nowhere near a post shop. The nearest post shop is 3 hours away.

        I am still sad (mad) that this company is still "stealing" from people. I did get half my money back when I realised my mistake and that was it.
        I have given up on getting the rest back 😢😢

      • Sue 11/20/2023 at 07:18 PM

        Hi everyone

        Like all of you I got caught in this web. Thought I was purchasing one bottle and will get two for free, next thing I knew I was charges $339.74 and tried to cancel the order but could not get through to anyone. Been to my Bank who cancelled the card. Looking at the package that did come (not that I would be putting the contents of these bottles in my body), noticed the sender's address is HLC Supplements (this company does not exist), PO BOX 456 Brisbane is the return address (this address belongs to AURIZON which is a company which moves coal, iron ore, agricultural fright and more...) so sending the product back will result in AURIZON throwing the product out. The pone number on the package is 08 7089 7222 which either cuts out when dialed or on hold music is payed for 5:30 minutes. What is the department of Fair Trading doing about this?

      • Twin 12/05/2023 at 01:18 AM

    • Unhappy 09/18/2023 at 04:57 AM

      I was stupid enough to use this site, I was charged $339.74 for my product as well and I did receive the first set. I also stupidly clicked on “refill” and straight away regretted it, when it was time to “refill” I found the unsubscribe button and clicked. But they had taken another $339.74 after lots of emails and two phone calls in regards to a refund I received the second set of tablets today 18/09/23, but I cancelled my order on the 22/08/23, when I spoke to the man today he said I couldn’t send the product back as it was sent out before I cancelled my order… I told him this was bullshit and could prove via Australia post it was sent on 08/09/23 well after I cancelled my order, I had demanded a refund. Healthy Life choice, Sterling Vitamins what ever you call yourself I will not let the go and I’m going to shut you down. Come on Australia government these people have bank accounts, addresses, phone numbers, they use Aust post with tracking numbers, you can track them better then us. My bottles have “made in USA” on them so they import them into Australia.

        I phoned my bank this morning, only to be told they can't do anything, but to wait for 21 days to see if I get the delivery. Plus, I was told if I cancelled my card, it would still go through because it was in pending.

Instantly I was mortified & tried contacting company to cancel order but they said it’s already being processed so I will have to fill out a return form & wait for parcel to arrive then send it back for refund. Its been nearly 2 weeks & I haven’t heard anything- no shipment advice or tracking number at all which is pretty disappointing given they are meant to be a Queensland company! I had to do a “live chat”online to even get a response but I have made it clear that if I don’t receive a shipment notification from Australia post by Friday I’ll be contacting them again to get a full refund & my bank are already following up their fraudulent transactions so hopefully we can all get our money back and walk away fromthis terrible experience a bit wiser.

        I ordered essential keto gummies - buy 3 get 2 free. 67.95 per bottle. The email that was sent to me was from Sterling vitamins saying 5 bottles would be $339.Should have been $204.

        I rang straight away and they said the price would be adjusted. I asked for an updated email reflecting the price change. That never arrived. I have been on their chat line nearly everyday (having to explain the problem every time). They keep saying wait 24 hours...They said that because of all the trouble i have had they would reduce the cost to $169. They keep sending an email saying it is $339. Now they say they will have to send my problem to their technical department because there is something wrong with their website. The funny part is nothing has gone through my bank account and they say they will refund $169? I doubt i will receive the order but as long as nothing goes through my account it doesn't matter. I asked to just cancel the order..."oh know we can't do that.." I asked if someone could ring me back when it is sorted " oh no we can't do that"....and so it continues 🤦‍♀️

      Same with me. Followed a "gummies" link for buy one get one free. Got charged $330 - complained and tried to cancel when I saw the name "Sterling" and a quick picture of the wrong product (which I could never find again). Online chat (after three tries) wouldn't let me cancel, but gave me a $170 refund if I kept the order. They finally arrived today after a long wait and are capsules and not gummies. VERY annoyed and feeling so stupid.

    • Angrybird 10/05/2023 at 06:43 AM

      I was that stupid too as I realised I got scammed straight after I placed the order. It charged me $339.74 for the 3 bottles of Gummies (very misleading info on their ordering webpage) however i received a confirmation email stated they are capsules not gummies. Then I started to contact them to cancel the order which was within an hour after the order was placed. Tried email but no reply then I stayed on the live chat requesting cancel of the order/ a refund until someone responded me. Firstly they tried to assure me that capsules are the same result as the gummies. I stayed firm requesting to cancel my order. They tried to offer refund me 50% of it and allow me to keep the products, I rejected the offer. Then they said unfortunately they could not cancel the order after its being placed. I told them that if the product is different to the description presented in my order i can have a refund for it. I contact the bank to dispute this transaction. Ended up they gave me a refund. Be caution of this company/website. It has a PO box as registered address for the company which shouldn't be, the phone no will just divert you to an US number, email will never have reply its the same email that send you the confirmation......

I phoned and spoke to the office however they care what you have to say or listed all they do it tell you that when the capsules arrive to send them back for a refund. Given the amount of complaints i wont waste me time. I did receive the capsules a few days after i place my order but i dont think i will ever see my money again

        My fiance got duped into paying 272.85 for some pills, as a once off transaction. The company initiated an automatic reorder which was not requested. Trying to get support from their customer service to refund transaction is impossible.

      • rk 11/22/2023 at 05:05 AM

        I just had the same issue where they tried to do a reorder and I hadn't approved this. Fortunately my bank picked up on this and blocked my credit card to prevent the transaction from going through. I would suggest anyone being duped by these people change their credit card as that's the safest way to avoid any further contact. I've given up on getting back what I originally paid. Had I gone to my back immediately after the first purchase had happened I might have had some assistance from the bank but it was a while before I realised their products are fake.

      I to fell for this. I ordered 1 bottle of Active Keto Gummies via a Maggie Beer page. I quickly noticed that I was getting 5 bottles and charged $339.74 I managed to get $135 back. Very disappointed. I received the order quickly and now realise that they are a supplement, and not the gummies.

      This is a deadset scam. Twice i tried to order the Gummies and both times they sent capsules. I refused to accept the second order and they said they would give me a refund for half immediately which then went to 3-5 working days. Both times we thought we ordered 1 bottle of gummies at $67.00 and got charged $339 for 5 bottles of capsules and the second time $211 for 2 more bottles of capsules. SCAM SCAM SCAM why they have Maggie Beers all over the adds i do not know and i dont think she knows they are using her to suck people in. DO NOT touch this .

      website advertised buy 2 get one free, once i completed all the info requested by them, was charged for all 3 bottles. Immediately realised it was a scam, rang the number on their email, spoke to an Indian woman who said that the charge was for equivalent amount in USD, I told her that the website says AUD & was going to contact Consumer affairs & she refunded me $75. I also mentioned that the image in their email of the products I would be receiving dont look the same as on their website, which she came back with "we are always changing the design of the bottles"! I've screen shot what I thought I was ordering. I dont expect to get any product or any refund so have cancelled my credit card just in case.

I immediately went to their live chat to cancel the order and was advised at least 16 minute wait to talk to anyone. Waited over 45mins and of course could not speak to anyone.

The live chat said they couldn't stop the order as already had been packed and shipped (within seconds?!no!!) The phone number hung up on me as soon as I said I wanted a refund. The email replies were not on letter head email, replied in the middle of the night and were automated style. I cancelled my credit card and did receive the products but don't want to return them as I know I won't get my money back. I don't know what the pills have in them?! Not FDA approved. Could be nothing for all I know. Totally stay away from this scam!

      Hi Everyone, once I purchased and found I was mislead on the price, the day after I chatted with the support team for a refund (please be patient as you can!). After many counter offers, they accepted I wanted a refund and sent me as RMA form via email (note the RMA form said 30 day return guarantee though chat advised was 60 days). The pills took a week to arrive, I repacked and sent back to specified address with pictures and tracking etc etc. I chatted to support not long after, though the parcel had arrived at the post office and not collected, they processed my refund on the day. I now have my complete refund, though I might change my credit card as they now have my details, though they said I taken of the rebill list for pills every month, can't say I trust them fully. Anyway, just letting you know my story. If you need help I'm here to help best as I can if you reply to my comment here.

    • Alex 10/27/2023 at 08:47 PM

      Oh and just to note how I got targeted. The Veto pills site was an advertised link off the website, so though is a legit website, the advertisements you encounter no way means it is legit so please be careful on any website regardless how much you trust or been to many times, do not trust advertisements....please be very vigilant.......

    • Julie 11/04/2023 at 08:02 AM

      I too got scammed. Same deal order 3 bottles got charged for 5 bottles. Call customer service and received a refund of $120. When capsules arrived rang again to complain that I ordered Gummies not capsules was told the capsules work even better than the gummies. They sent me a refund form to send them back and said to advise them the tracking number. Which I did and stayed on the phone until I received a refund of $229. This was processed same day.

      I feel the only way to get what you want is to threaten that you are going to report them to consumer affairs. As soon as I said this they were very quick to arrange the refund.

      I ordered late on a Friday and when I didn't receive a conformation email I called my bank first thing Monday to start a fraudulent purchase claim. My card was cancelled ans a new one issued so they'd no longer have my details. The parcel arrived and it definitely sounds like capsules. I haven't opened it as I want to take a picture to provide the bank and return to sender as soon as the bank processes my refund. Mhmorder was buy 3 get 3 free and was charged for 6, 5 arrived and postage was 1 and a half times more than actual postage charges here.

      I too, was cheated. ordered a bottle for $69.00 and soon my purchase confirmation came back to inform me of my purchase of 5 bottles totalling $339.74. I thought i made a mistake and left the order. Received package with 5 bottles of capsules and the bottles did not look anything like what I ordered. did not realise my blunder until I tried to contact the Sterling Vitamin site for a chat where never came a reply. I also emailed the given contact, again no reply.

      will try to research through the bank, I always find that helpful.
      Lesson to be learnt!! Do not buy online unless you know the outlet.

    • Charlie 11/10/2023 at 05:02 AM

      Their advertising is a scam, they make out they are promoted by reputable well know personalities and that you are buying a new product called - Active Keto Gummies, But it's false advertising, you find later that it is Sterling Vitamins and you aren't getting Keto Gummies, but the old Keto capsules. Also once they have your details they will send you repeat orders, even when you have specifically requested them not to do so. I have now had to cancel my Credit Card and request my bank to dispute the money that they have taken from my account and to cap it all off, the product does not live up to expectations!! Warning, do not trust this company.

    • R 11/14/2023 at 02:03 AM

      Most of these comments virtually mirror what has happened to me. I too was charged $339.74 for 5 bottles when I only agreed to purchasing 1, I phoned the Adelaide # within 12 minutes of the transaction. I then phoned Maggie Beer products soon after to verify if she had any affiliation with these 'gummies' which end up being capsules, and was sent proof that Maggie Beer does not endorse this product and that in fact the product is a SCAM and not to make a purchase. I too asked for cancellation and was refused, but told I would get a refund for the 5 bottles in 1 in 2-6 business days and only pay for 1. I don't believe them and so cancelled my credit card to save myself any further rip offs from these low life's. With so many complaints, can't something be done to shut these bums down.

    • Anne-Marie 11/16/2023 at 10:55 PM

      Thank you Sue! This is exactly what happened to me. I received the product today - 5 bottles of capsules not gummies and want to return them straight away but was unsure how as the sender's address is not legitimate. Can I ask what number you called? So happy to hear you were lucky enough to get a refund. Good work! Kind regards, Anne-Marie

    • Sue 11/17/2023 at 09:56 PM

      Hi Anne-Marie. I called 08 7089 7222. The return address I used was supplied on the form that you have to send back when you return the product. It was RMA Returns, PO Box 11666 Greenslopes Qld 4120. When you call to request a refund, ask for this refund return form and they will email it to you. Australia Post accepted my return parcel. I called with my return tracking number within half an posting the capsules back, and was refunded the full amount straight away ie. I didn't have to wait until they received my return. As I said earlier, I called that number 3 times (between 7.30-9am) and it was answered each time.

      I ordered 3 bottles got 5 and charged for the five plus P&H. I ordered keto Gummies not capsules but received capsules. I thought by ordering through Australian company I would not be affected by scams. Tried to contact immediately was told all service people were busy. Was given the option for a one off supply or a subscription I said NO to a subscription but now I am worried my card will be accessed without my permission. When I tried the website for connecting to sterling vitamins a warning came up on my computer that the website was RUSSIAN. Now I will have to cancel my card and get a new one to stop them.

      - When ordered it made it look like I was receiving a massive discount. In the checkout there is no final amount showing and when you get the receipt it is up to triple the amount than expected. I thought I was paying for $67 worth and it ended up charging me $330.00.
      - Fake ads using AI to have Hamish Blake endorsing the product.
      - They sent through a returns policy asking me to fill out an Authorised Returns Merchandise Form but when I went to Australia Post, they informed me that the PO Box was not valid.
