Shark Tank Keto Scam

shark tank keto scamThere have been a lot of emails in my inbox about a new Shark Tank Scam – the Shark Tank Keto Scam. Just like the Shark Tank Skincare Scam I reported on a few years ago, this scam is designed to part you from your money by offering a “risk free trial offer.” DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!

The scammers try to lure you in with the photo above, a picture of Anna and Samantha Martin, the women on “the most watched episode in Shark Tank history.” The scam site looks like an entertainment site claiming the product was featured on the Today Show, Oprah, The New York Times and others. The “article” goes on to say that all five Sharks invested over a million dollars each in “the biggest deal in Shark Tank history.” The funny thing is, two years ago, two sisters named Anna and Samantha Martin got the “biggest deal in Shark Tank history.” Imagine that, two years apart two sisters with identical names got the biggest deal ever?

The Shark Tank Keto Scam pitch goes on to say “they celebrated the success with champagne and cake when the episode wrapped.” The picture they used for that false claim was a shot from the 100th episode celebration. Where are the winning sisters? Nowhere, because they don’t exist!

The scammy ad copy goes on to say how they sold out of inventory in five minutes after airing and a bunch of other lies and ridiculous claims. The copy is littered with links to the “company website” where you are redirected to a site touting “Ultra Fast Keto Boost.” I am NOT linking to the site because they are such scammers.

How The Shark Tank Keto Scam gets your money

The reason this company uses the lead in from a fake Shark Tank contestant is it gives the product credibility. Once you are redirected to the Ultra Keto Boost site, there’s no more mention of Shark Tank or the Martin sisters. The “risk free trial offer” sends you five bottles of Ultra Fast Keto Boost for the price of three. One bottle costs $69.99, so you will be billed $209.97!

But wait, there’s more. Every month, they will bill your credit card for whatever you ordered the first time and send you more product. It’s the same as with the Skin Care Scam. I’ve had emails from peope who literally had to cancel their credit cards to make the charges stop.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is

As another note of caution, do not believe outrageous claims made by “miracle” diet products. This scam site has claims that people lose thirty pounds in a month just from taking their supplements. That is ridiculous and it would be very unhealthy, unless you are morbidly obese. Diet and exercise are the best way to achieve weight loss.

The Keto diet IS a real thing. It’s short for Ketogenic Diet, a high-fat, low-carb diet which  cuses your body to burn more fat. A simple Google search will get you plenty of information on how it works. And if you ever want to check if a product has been on Shark Tank, just search the company name on this site with the search box. If you still believe a pill will melt thirty pounds off you, you probably deserve to get scammed.

      It says, “Speak Your Mind”…so here goes: There are no miracle cures/potions…NONE…for any such of weight loss/reduction, whether in “pill” or “special foods” or liquid/”shakes” form, et al. That is, none that are healthy and not terribly risky, but rather only to play on people’s gullibility and desperation in taking their money. The only way, bar none, is through self-discipline and perseverance in reducing the intake, timing and quantity of healthy foods (eating habits) to include more water (no sodas or similar, not even most “juices”) in conjunction with regular daily exercise (walking if fine/good…even stationary exercises if regular/daily). For most, the biggest aspect of all this is just getting started…to start slow and build up…no snacks, no late meals (nothing after about 5 or 6 at latest and even earlier between 4-5 as possible, and begin to practice some fasting under a like-minded physician’s care, plus again, healthy foods all in a 4-6 hour period, increase water intake and exercise. Check out (read) the dietary/diabetes books by Dr. Jason Fung, MD.

    So the mind tech product is running the usual scam. I ordered the free sample (I know – red flag). Then I got caught in a stream of screens offering extra products that I didn’t want. But apparently just passing thru the screens (but I didn’t see any way around it) generated orders for these products. When I hit complete order, it initiated a set of debits to my checking account for the original item plus two others. I never actually saw an invoice screen with a detailed or even a summary of the charges. Just a notice with a phone number to call, and a notice that in 10 days I would be billed for a full order at $108.00. The phone number was not the correct one. The phone system Which answered at the advertised number provided the correct number. I immediately called and cancelled my order and any future memberships. What a scam. The Shark Investors should be really proud of themselves for bankrolling this sham of a product/ membership. Thanks for listening.

      To Rebecca Byrd this investors are not behind this nor do they support it. Did you even read the article? The scammers are just saying it was on shark tank but it was not.
