It is getting difficult now to keep up with all the scam products appearing on the net at the moment. My post on the Nutrascience scam has now attracted over 10,000 visits and is still getting comments on a daily basis, but this is just one of the slimming products out there using the same modus operandi to swindle people out of their money. I say products, in fact it is usually the same product just renamed and put back out there, promising unfeasibly spectacular weight loss.
The latest scam product to catch my eye is a topically applied concoction of various random oils called O24, making unsubstantiated claims to relieve pain that I have no doubt breach Advertising Standards Authority rules, just as Finitro Forte did. Perusing the terms & conditions you find the phrase “authorising us to charge payments against your debit or credit card that you provided.” That’s the phrase that gives the whole game away.
This variety of scam should be well known by now, but there are, I am sure, lots out there who will be lured in by the “special introductory offer” which will subsequently be very expensive for them. Don’t be one of them.
