I’ve lost count of how many scammers claim that Melissa McCarthy is using their product to lose weight. Seriously! If you see any weight loss product with her name or photo associated with it, assume it’s a scam! Melissa McCarthy does NOT use or endorse this product. DO NOT purchase this product based on these FAKE endorsements!
Pretending to be the TMZ website, this scammer lures people in with this header – “Viewers SHOCKED Following Cancellation of ‘Mike and Molly’. McCarthy Now “Too Skinny for The Role”!”
The scammer digs right in with this “Fabriquote”:
TMZ Exclusive Interview Featuring McCarthy – “I.. just.. I can’t believe it! They’re cancelling an amazing show JUST because I decided to finally be healthy. It makes no sense! They said I no longer fit the part, which is outrageous. It all started when some of my colleagues recommended Garcinia Cambogia, something they had seen on a Dr. Oz episode. It didn’t take long after my consult with Dr. Oz to notice results. I saw a HUGE difference in less than a week!”
It’s BS of course, but many visitors to the site won’t realize that.
The scammer then proceeds to include photos of Dr. Oz, Paula Dean, and Carrie Underwood.
Now, for those who don’t know, I appear fairly regularly as a guest expert on the Dr. Oz Show where I help investigate and expose scams.
I can tell you for a fact that Dr. Oz does not produce, sell or endorse this or any other weight loss product at this time.
Viewers and consumers should understand that when Dr. Oz talks about a supplement on his show it is informational only and it presented to broaden viewer knowledge about new discoveries and research, etc.
Unfortunately, scammers latch onto the slightest mention on his show and immediately begin pedaling bogus products that they claim Dr. Oz is endorsing. BOTTOM LINE – if you see ANY PRODUCT (whether it’s related to weight loss, skincare, health or anything else) that claims Dr. Oz is selling or endorsing it IT’S FAKE.
As you can see here, they also claim that Carrie Underwood used their product to lose weight after her pregnancy.
The Phony TMZ Test
This scammer also claims that TMZ had a staffer (Suzanne Pischner) “test” the product for a month. Even though it’s a complete fabrication, they’ve gone to great lengths to make it look convincing.
There’s a weekly diary tracking her success and photos to show her progress along the way.
The PROBLEM is this… the woman in the pictures is actually named Amanda, and she did lose a lot of weight but NOT by using this product. You can see her real story here.
Needless to say, this product was NOT tested by anyone on the TMZ staff!
THE BAIT & SWITCH “FREE TRIAL”
SO, if you did decide to take them up on the “free” trial offer, you’d land on a page where they’ll ask for your name, address, phone number, email address and CREDIT CARD number – so they can charge you $4.95 for shipping and handling.
He problem is, once you give them your credit card number, the charges will just keep coming. See this screenshot of their site:
Notice the really small, really faded text at the bottom of their page. Most people wouldn’t notice it because they’d need to scroll down the page to see it.
If you DID read it, here’s what you’d find:
By placing your order today you’ll be shipped a day supply of Healthy Garcinia Cambogia Pro (just pay $4.95 S&H). If you feel Healthy Garcinia Cambogia Pro is not for you, cancel within 14 days from today to avoid the purchase price of $89.97 USD and enrollment in the auto-shipment program. Forty-five days after you start your trial and every thirty days thereafter, we shall send you a fresh day supply of Healthy Garcinia Cambogia Pro and charge you $89.97 USD. You may cancel at any time by calling Customer Service at 0800 909 8352. Standard Delivery times are 3-5 Business Days
So, if you DON’T CANCEL YOU’LL BE CHARGED A LOT AND OFTEN!
BOTTOM LINE – It’s a scam that will be hard to get out of – just don’t do it!!
