Avilean scam

One of my readers has alerted me to yet another scam, another slimming product called Avilean. Yet again it features acai berries, together with mango and tea. I don’t normally provide a link to these sites but have done on this occasion because this time the ad is so badly done that I don’t think it likely to persuade anyone to part with their cash. 

It seems to have been written by someone for whom English is not a first language. It’s a combination of mangled English with meaningless gibberish so poor that it can’t even be described as pseudoscientific. Here are a few quotes taken directly from the page

“in the event that particular factor needs to make a move with sensuous and unattractive looks, then you definitely really have careful analysis build your fancy become a reality.”
“This component adjusts the look of adiponectin by enhancing blood insulin meter. Weight loss, the doppelganger of the element, lower downs the amount of C-reactive proteins.”
“enhances the metabolism by maintaining a reliable heartbeat.”
“The product not just inspections weight but additionally includes a check up on its prices. Hurry, and grab Avilean today, should you desire the having a properly contoured physiology.”
All scams eventually become so well known that they become unusable, but that doesn’t stop crooks from trying, far too late, to jump on the bandwagon. I am still occasionally getting emails from Nigerian gentlemen offering me huge sums of money, provided I send them some first. 

Hopefully the Nutrascience type scam is now getting to that stage and fewer people are being taken in. I expect they will think of something new.
