Fake Diet Fad Websites

I'm seeing a dramatic increase in emails about magic diet pills or supplements (two in the same day) from friends. I know the increase is dramatic because the music flared up suddenly. These websites look real at a quick glance, but a close examination reveals they are just fake mockups.

Here are a few ways to identify them:

  • None of their top menu items go anywhere, or they all go to the same place (like a page to buy the product).
  • In fact every single link on the site goes to the same place.
  • The social network links don't actually go to any social networks.
  • The site may have a funny disclaimer at the bottom such as "Article sponsored by African Mango Boost."
  • A bunch of comments, but not a single negative one. This is the internet people, at least half of the comments should be negative.
  • The stories are too good to be true (because they are).

The sites I've seen all appear to have been featured on the Dr. Oz Show. Either Dr. Oz is a fake person that many diet scams hire to promote their products, or he is willing to endorse anything. I'm not going to bother linking to the sites, because I don't want anyone to get duped or to marginally increase the traffic to the scammers.

HydroxyCut is the only product I've ever seen / used which actually produced results in one month. I lost 11 pounds, I also developed a severe sleeping disorder, nausea, headaches, and dizziness. The original HydroxyCut was eventually pulled from the market and a new version appeared.

There is no magic pill (either from mango seeds or green coffee or anything) that is going to make you lose weight without having to diet and / or exercise.+

Diet and exercise are the only two things which are going to work.

+Counting Calories is a short story about a fat-eating bacteria that is developed as a magic weight loss option. The consequences are disastrous.
