A disgruntled Weight Watchers customer says the company used her images and profile information in an advertisement.Writing at PissedConsumer.com, the woman says she joined the weight loss site and paid a $60 fee. Before long, she found out her picture and name were being used in ads for the organisation’s online community. The anonymous poster wrote:

Now the whole world knows I am fat! I have tried to have my name dissociated from the Weight Watchers Community online.

The poster says she called a customer service representative to air her concerns, but was shot down:

I was told Weight Watchers Online Community is like Facebook. NO! NO! NO! NO! I pay for Weight Watchers, Facebook is FREE!

Visiting a public site for the Weight Watchers community reveals photos and names for new members and recent posters. If you join one of their communities hoping for discretion, be careful: chances are your username and picture could be accessible to anyone.
