Weight loss scams are pretty common but unfortunately the scams are becoming more believable and “authentic.” I was working on my computer recently and went into another room briefly. When I returned, I noticed a window had popped up with an article entitled, 1 Tip of A Flat Belly: A Surprising New Way to Burn Fat Quickly. As I reviewed the article, I noticed the picture of the reporter, Karen Simpson. Hmmm…interesting story I thought. I was intrigued that she used her journalistic skills to investigate whether these Acai Berry products really worked. I scanned through the remainder of the article and noticed several places to click through and buy the product. Huh? Wait a minute, I thought this was an objective viewpoint. Now I’m being directed to a site to purchase product.
I dismissed the idea of purchasing the product and continued doing my work. Bothered by what I read however, I did a quick search on the reporter (thank God for the internet!) and her previous work. What I found was shocking. I came across another article entitled, 1 Tip of A Flat Belly: A Surprising New Way to Burn Fat Quickly. Except this time the amazing products were Cho Yung Tea!
Now get this; when you look at both articles, they’re exactly the same! That’s right, the entire story is duplicated and these miracle products are endorsed by the same diet and fitness writer, Karen Simpson. It’s a scam ya’ll! I was angry and saddened by this reality. Many folks will see what looks like a credible story on weight loss products and purchase them without question. You have to be ever-scrutinizing when it comes to miracle weight-loss solutions and the easy fix. So buyer beware, do your homework, and avoid getting scammed!
