Power Slim Garcinia Scam

Power Slim Garcinia is the latest scam to hit the market and they’ve appropriated Vanna White’s image to push their pills. The game is for them to make a FORTUNE – and every space on the wheel spells BANKRUPT for their victims.

Garcinia cambogia is the backbone of a new weight loss scam nearly every week. Power Slim Garcinia is just the latest in that line.

Celebrity Appropriation:

Following the trend of these scams, Melissa McCarthy, Miranda Lambert, and Christina Aguilera all make appearances. The new face for this scam is Vanna White. She’s fabriquoted at multiple points and her image appears throughout the “article.”

“A few of my friends told me about Power Slim Garcinia, so I decided to give it a try.” – words which Vanna White most assuredly never uttered.

Borrowing from Bloggers:

In addition to putting words in the mouths of celebrities and slapping their faces all over the scam page, these scammers have “borrowed” the identities of a few bloggers to sell their bottled B.S.

One such individual is Britney Munday. She has a website that catalogs her 2013 weight loss journey after giving birth to her son. She lost 50 pounds within 5 months and photographed her progress along the way. CLICK HERE to visit her page and read about her journey. Below is the image that scammers borrowed from her site and loosely edited under the name Alice Clemmens (see the original on Britney’s site).

How They Steal Your Money:

Power Slim Garcinia has adopted the “Free Trial” scheme. Trials are one of the most frequent scam approaches that we come across. No price is listed. Why should it be? It’s a free trial, right? Well no. Not at all. Buried within the terms & conditions are terms that will auto-enroll you for monthly refills, at full cost. Additionally, if you haven’t cancelled your enrollment within 14 days, you’re charged for that first free bottle. Bear in mind, at this point there’s practically no way of knowing that you’re enrolled in any subscription service unless you return your sample. As with many other scams in this vein, the only way to opt out is by phone. The lines are rarely manned and the bills keep coming until you do manage to connect with the “service providers.”
