“Acai berry scam promoted in main media”

The acai berry products hsve been promoted for quick weight loss. It has become the latest and greatest craze, but with the craze come the crazies – the scam artists who pray on peoples needs for their own monetary gains.

Be aware of the scam promotions in the newspapers and on the web. Their ads may often begin with some of the following lines:

Look out for other manufacturing processes

Avoid products with additional ingredients

Avoid products that only include the Acai berry fruit as a minor ingredient

Free trial offers

Avoid products with any listed side effects

Over the last several months, the LA Times website and other mainstream media outlets have been running ads featuring text with messages like, “1 Trick of a Tiny Belly: Cut down a bit of your belly every day using this 1 weird old tip.”

The ad lures web surfers into a deceptive “fake news page” designed to trick people into agreeing to misleading offers that may result in hundreds of dollars being charged to their credit cards.

The “tiny belly” ads (http://www.naturalnews.com/images/T…), take surfers to any one of multiple fake news sites that appear to be legitimate news sites but are actually deceptive marketing pages. One such fake news page dubbed “Health News” features apparent news video footage from “Fox35,” an AccuWeather report, an apparent testimonial and a collection of user comments which appear to be completely fabricated. The “Leave reply” section is “closed due to spam,” says the fabricated advertorial page.
