Acai Cleansing Scam

Here is a message I received from one of my clients. I'm not really thrilled about it as you can imagine. All of these scam diets use Google Adwords to drive unsuspecting buyers to their sites and offer them a free trial only to “steal” money from them:

“I just want to make you aware that I clicked on a link from your web site for
acai berry and some type of cleansing free trial. After ordering them they sold my card number to another company who in turn charged my card with $89.31 with out my
permission. When I read the privacy policy on acai berry web site it says they will
sell your information. Just letting you know so you can take that link off your web site.”

Thank you
Sharon

I have decided not to use “Google” ads on my sites anymore because I can’t be associated with this sort of “Scam”. It is my job to give you the best information, not perpetuate bad stuff.

Here’s a tip: Any website that says “Acai Berry Diet Cleanse” and “I lost 32, 42, 48, or whatever amount of weight” and is a website that’s called either: “beckysweightloss.com”, heathersweightloss.com or lisasweightloss.com, I think you get the picture. If it says phrases like that you can bet you will get scammed.

Please do not click on these ads they will steal your money.

Here are some of the websites that are scams:

http://lisaweightloss.com/

http://beckyweightloss.com

http://heatherweightloss.com

They are different blogs but have the same photos on them. It’s a little ironic…don’t you think. They will all have the same type of URL and profile.

If you have been taken by one of these websites, please contact me and I will do my best to help them to be shut down!

Thanks for the warning, Sandy. BTW, I just saw on Meaghan Elliot's blog where you're doing the toys-for tots fundraiser. You're a good man--just wanted to remind you. Pretty business savy, too. :)
