Here’s the bait line for this scam, “Cha-Ching! Judge Judy Cashes In $200 Million For Departure From Her Show, Her Fans Are Shocked (And Overjoyed) With What She’s Doing Now.”
Yep, previously the scammers were telling us that Ellen is leaving TV to start her skin care line. Now, they’re telling us that Judge Judy has left to start her skin care line. AND… in strange twist, this one claims that Ellen has said she’ll be a “Fan for Life” of Judge Judy’s product. Neither Judge Judy nor Ellen are selling, promoting or endorsing these products.
DO NOT purchase this product based on these FAKE celebrity endorsements!
Since scammers work so hard creating quotes from the celebrities who don’t endorse their products, let’s kick this post off with one of the FABRIQUOTES they crafted for this one:
“Now that this chapter of my life is coming to a close I have more time to spend on my skin care line that I have been dreaming of bringing to market for my fans and former court room plaintiffs and defendants!” ~ Judge Judy
The scammers go on to say, “She decided that the best plan was to create her own line of Skin Care products to avoid botox, surgery, and aging on TV in front of millions! Derma Lux Anti Aging Moisturizer and Derma Lux Instant Eye Treatment begins by immediately clearing up lines, blemishes, and any imperfections from your face caused by aging or sun damage….,” and a WHOLE BUNCH OF OTHER BS they made up for the occasion.
In addition to the usual array of TESTIPHONIALS which follow the same “pirated Facebook profile” path as so many other scammers, this con has gone a bit further by adding a section of “FAN SUBMISSIONS!”
Before & after photos are always so compelling – tipping skeptical consumers toward the “buy” side of the fence.
Take a look at this submission from “Noemi Compos, 42, Miami, FL.”
Her “fan statement” reads:
“I’m in love with Derma Lux Anti Aging Moisturizer. After just one week of using them, a friend of mine asked me what I did to make my skin look so alive! Overall since I started my daily skin care regimen my complexion is fresher, younger, and more radiant.” – Noemi Compos, 42 Miami, Florida
Sounds good and she looks good, so why not try it yourself, right.
Well, as it turns out, this really is a woman named Noemi and she really did try a skin care product and post a testimonial – just not for this product.
Take a look at the image below and you’ll see her actual statement as it appears on the Herbalife site.
Same before & after photos, same name, even a lot of the same language, but they changed her city, state and age. (Because copying the whole thing would just be wrong and you have to draw the line somewhere. 😉
FREE TRIAL OFFER – THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON TAKING
Should you make your way to the order page to grab the “free trial” bottle that’s being offered, you’ll find a simple order form at the top. They ask for your name, address and contact information and, of course, your credit card details so they can charge you the $4.95 shipping charge.
BUT, at the very bottom of the page, in a place they never expect you to look, are their Terms & Conditions and that is where they bury their DIRTY LITTLE SECRET. Here’s what it says:
“You are ordering a 16 day (12 day evaluation plus 4 days for shipping for a total of 16 days) product evaluation of Derma Lux Cream. You only pay $4.95 in shipping today.”
“…do nothing and 16 days from the (plus 4 days for shipping for a total of 16 days) original purchase date, you will be charged $79.95. You understand you will also be enrolled in our auto-shipment program. Every 30 days from the end of your trial, you will recieve and new 30 day supply of Derma Lux Cream. If you do not cancel before the end of the 16 day trial (12 day evaluation plus 4 days for shipping so a total of 16 days), you will be charged $79.95 for the trial product in hand, and every 30 days thereafter you will be sent a new bottle of product and be charged $79.95 plus $7.95 shipping and handling until you cancel.“
So, THEY HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION BECAUSE YOU JUST GAVE IT TO THEM FOR THE SHIPPING CHARGE, and now, just 16 days after you hit “send” on the “free trial” order form, your card will be hit for $79.95 to pay for the “FREE” bottle. That’s a whopping charge for a 16-day supply of the product (look at the first line in the quotes where they reveal that fact). So, in a nutshell, they start their relationship with you by charging you the full price for half the product. NICE!
Then, if you didn’t catch it on your credit card bill and you still don’t cancel, they’ll bill you for another $87.90 30 days after that and so on every 30 days until you cancel.
The verdict is in – this is a scam!
