This Nuvitaskin scam arrived as spam email with the subject line, “Ellen announces shes been fired from her show (ABC),” and a header stating, “On Thursday, Ellen shocks audience members by announcing her resignation live on air.”
DO NOT purchase this product based on these FAKE celebrity endorsements!
Here’s another scam claiming that, “Ellen DeGeneres recently announced she will be leaving The Ellen Show in this summer to promote a new skincare line that was recently voted #1 by Dermatologists.”
On a site that’s designed to look like the People magazine site, the scammers dive right in with these FABRIQUOTES (never-uttered quotes created by scammers and attributed to celebrities):
“I am very excited to announce that there is an anti-aging cream that I can fully stand behind. As part of my promotion, I will be giving away free trials. 100% of the shipping money will be donated to #EllensOrganization” ~ Ellen DeGeneres
And this FABRIQUOTE from Ellen’s partner, Portia de Rossi:
“We want to campaign for a greater cause. Women’s anti-aging is important for the preservation of female beauty, confidence, and ultimately individual happiness.”
Of course, scammers love to name-drop, so this one goes on to claim that they’ve, “discovered celebrities around the world like Christie Brinkley, Diane Keaton and Catherine Zeta-Jones have all admitted to using Nuvitaskin to maintain their youthful glow. ”
NONE of these celebrities are promoting, selling or endorsing this product.
There are plenty of TESTIPHONIALS too. They were created with pirated Facebook accounts for a look or authenticity, and featuring “Tohloria Lewis” – that poor woman whose image has been used by scammers to sell everything from skin cream and diet pills, to Alzheimer’s and baldness cures. If you’ve been reading my posts, you will have seen her name and face many times.
The “FREE OFFER” that will drain your wallet.
Throughout the site, there’s an offer of a “Free Bottle of Nuvitaskin.” In fact, they are trying to encourage people to by in by claiming, “You will automatically be entered to win (2) free passes to see The Ellen Show when you claim your free bottle of Nuvitaskin.”
On the page where you order your free sample, they will ask for your name, address, email, and phone number as well as your credit card number so they can charge you $5.95 for “shipping.”
What they won’t tell you up front, and what they hide on a separate page that you can only reach if you find the very well hidden link which is in really small text at the bottom of the page is this:
“You are ordering a 14 day trial period (10 days trial + 4 days shipping) of NuVita Skin. You only pay $5.95 in shipping today. If you like the product, do nothing and 14 days (10 days trial + 4 days shipping) from the original purchase day, you will be charged $89.99. You understand you will also be enrolled in our auto-shipment program. Every 30 days from your original purchase date, you will recieve and new 30 day supply of NuVita Skin. If you do not cancel before the end of the 14 days (10 days trial + 4 days shipping), you will be charged $89.99 for the trial product in hand, and every 30 days thereafter you will be sent a new bottle of product and be charged $89.99 plus $5.95 shipping and handling until you cancel. “
READ THAT AGAIN… IT’S WORSE THAN YOU THINK!
Just 14 days after you hit the order button, you will be charged $89.99, then, 30 days from that same date, you’ll be charged ANOTHER $89.99 + $5.95.
So you will be billed:
$ 5.95 Day you order the free sample.
$89.99 14 days later
$95.49 16 days after that
$191.88 AMOUNT YOU ‘LL BE BILLED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF ORDERING YOUR FREE BOTTLE.
I think I developed a new wrinkle due to frowning while I read these terms of service. For the health of your skin (and your finances), don’t get involved with these scammers!
