Diet Scam Revealed!

On the KTLA local news last night they did an expose on the Wu Yi diet scam. This guy is a real winner when it comes diet scams because on his website he has a little talking head guy that says,"Ripoffs and scams are everywhere in this industry and it makes me madder than a wet hen," and "If you don't successfully lose weight with our tea within 60 days, simply send it back for a refund on the tea,"! But come to find out this is a SCAM!

After you give him your credit card number, you'll soon discover on your next statement you have been scammed because you'll see charges from other companies. These other companies you never authorized to bill you, or did you? On his website http://www.wu-yisource.com/ if you look REALLY close inside one of those fancy graphics, you will see some of the fine print. Some of the fine print says that when you sign up for Wu-Yi Source program, you have "... also unlocked a free seven day and twenty-eight day trial to the celebrity-proven Insider Secrets Tips package and the Comprehensive Weight Loss eBook package ..." So basically, you have now agreed to at least three separate programs and three separate monthly charges to your credit card. And the best part is, even if you call to cancel one of these "Free" offers you just signed up for, it doesn't measn you have canceled them all. You have to call each company individually to cancel!

Thanks to the KTLA news for bringing this out in the open. So, now that you have been scammed and you realize it, what are you going to do? You could go to Chris Malta's Surviving EBiz and find out how to get your money back! Chris Malta has a video on how to get your money back from a scammer.

Cindy, excellent points about not realizing what you have signed up for! (Getting billed from different companies). Very good info, thanks!

The fine print made me think about the Fantastical ScamBob Adventure which can be found at ScamBob's Bedtime Story
Great job Cindy!
