The world is in quarantine right now, and everyone insists on home fitness more than anything else. However, the human mind’s training is such that it will seek comfort, and such is the case of most people in the lockdown itself.
First Option Recovery ran research to find out most people prefer to waste their time and not focus on their health during this lockdown. In 2014 and 2016, weight loss scams seemed to have been on a huge rise. On similar levels, con artists have taken advantage of such situations and brought many products that promised them to stay fit without actually doing anything.
Weight loss scams are popular in the age of technology. Some sell products, and others sell services. But in the end, everything ends up being some weight loss scam or the other.
First Option Recovery, the firm that ran the above research, has been the topmost fund recovery group globally, which has recovered over $19 million, working on over 3000+ cases for 2400+ clients. We have a solid team of over 120+ attorneys dedicated to the craft of fund recovery when it comes to weight loss scams and similar to pharmaceutical scams and gambling scams.
We have leveled up their team to such an extent that one can expect them to completely eradicate all kinds of weight in the following few years, loss scams happening worldwide. We are then focusing on recovering the funds that have been lost due to scams and exposing these weight-loss scams.
LET US SEE A FEW OF THE WEIGHT LOSS SCAMS EXAMPLES
FAKE ONLINE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
Have you ever browsed through various fitness webpages only to find out there is an advert showing that you can lose 50 pounds in 2 months if you buy the weight loss program? Within seconds, you click on that advertisement and end up being on a page that asks you to purchase the product.
You end up buying it and realize that the program was nothing but a blatant rip-off of some celebrity weight loss program. You end up dejected and ask for a refund, but Scammers did the damage by that time.
Such weight loss scams are common, and only a fund recovery firm like First Option Recovery can help you recover your money.
DOUBLE SHOT PILLS – RED AND BLUE
A weight-loss scam that was so big led to an FTC intervention. The company advertised it as two products, one that burns fat and the other that blocks calories. The red one did the former, and the blue one did the latter.
The advertisement campaign was so successful that the company raked millions of dollars in revenue by selling those two pills. Unfortunately, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) stepped in, and they found out that the contents of the pill have got nothing to do with fat loss. It was a complete hoax from the company. A legal notice hit the company’s founder and he ended up in jail. They lost millions of dollars but were never reimbursed back to the customers.
GREEN COFFEE EXTRACT- WEIGHT LOSS SCAM
A specific green coffee extract marketed as if it can eliminate 10% of your body weight within six months was one of the decade’s biggest weight-loss scams. The study was shown on the Dr. Oz Show where the doctor claimed that consumers who consumed green coffee regularly should lose 17.7 pounds or 10% of their body fat (whichever is higher) without any diet or exercise.
What caught our attention at First Option Recovery was that the entire process would take just 22 weeks, and that’s it. The claim was indeed fake, and after the weight loss scam was busted, the company had to pay $3.5 millions as compensation charges.
The weight-loss scams list is endless, and one can write an entire book on the total number of scams that exist. Hence, we advise investing one’s money wisely in such cases, and one should know that there is no shortcut to success.
