Attorney General Accepts Complaints from Members of LA Weight Loss Centers, Inc. and Pure Weight Loss, Inc.

BALTIMORE, MD (March 11, 2008) - Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that the Consumer Protection Division is accepting complaints from Maryland consumers who purchased, but did not receive, goods and services owed to them from Pennsylvania-based company, LA Weight Loss Centers, Inc. and Pure Weight Loss, Inc. The Consumer Protection Division is investigating the closing of 18 facilities owned and operated as LA Weight Loss and Pure Weight Loss.

In December, 2007, consumers were advised by the business that facilities would close on January 4, 2008. As a result, the Consumer Protection Division is requesting that Maryland consumers fill out and return a claim form if they are owed refunds for goods and services not provided to them prior to the closing of Maryland facilities. Consumers may download the claim form from the Attorney General’s website at www.oag.state.md.us/Healthclub/LAWL.htm. Consumers may return their completed claim forms either by faxing the forms to (410) 576-6566 or mailing them to:

Office of the Attorney General
Consumer Protection Division
200 St. Paul Place, 16th Floor
Baltimore, MD 21202
Attn: Barbara Jefferson

It is important for Maryland consumers to submit claim information and supporting documents to the Division. Maryland consumers who file claims with the State may be provided assistance in obtaining refunds for services and goods not yet provided.
