Few days back Oliver emailed me and asked if I know something about a product called 7 Day Acne Detox, available at http://www.7dayacnedetox.com/.
Call me paranoid, but the moment I laid my eyes on that page I knew something was not quite right about it. Perhaps I’ve just seen too many of these stories.
It didn’t take too long to discover that the same beloved characters that brought us such heart warming scams as Acnetix and Acnexus are also behind the 7 Day Acne Detox miracle. Namely the colorful characters at Garrett DeVore Labs, or GD Labs.
Now by calling this a scam, I don’t mean that they just take your money and run. No, they probably do fulfill their end of the bargain. So you do get a nice plastic bottle with some nice pills inside it. But I believe that by creating these products GD Labs has their eyes more on your wallet than helping you to get clear.
Let’s see why I believe so.
First, the website just doesn’t look believable at all. It looks like something that’s been thrown together quickly. If I would have spent time, money and effort to come up with a serious product I would also spend time making sure the website reflects that. But perhaps that’s just me.
Enter the anonymous ‘she’
Perhaps they are just really bad at this, but when you suddenly introduce a mysterious ‘she’ in the middle of the sales letter as the heroine of the story, to me that just smells like a cheap scam. I mean, who is this ‘she’? Where did she come from? What’s her relevance to this? Is ‘she’ part of your so-called research team that accidentally discovered this 7 Day Acne Detox miracle product?
Please don’t keep me in suspension. I want to know!
But the surprises aren’t over yet.
Introducing the family where everyone has acne!
Perhaps this is another conincidence, but the mysterious ‘she’ is really fortunate that her equally anonymous family and friends also have acne! Another blessing from the lady luck is that her miraculous discovery cured them all in one big swoop.
Boy, she really must be onto something if her whole family and all of her friends cured their acne with these miracle pills.
Why isn’t she on Oprah already? The people need to hear about this miracle!
Unfortunately in the midst of their excitement to bring this miraculous product and alleviate your suffering they forgot to correct the rather obvious typos in their sales letter. But we can forgive that since this is obviously one small person fighting the system in altruistic quest to alleviate the suffering of others.
But wait there’s more.
You just gotta love these FAQs
The 7 Day Acne Detox pills seem better by the minute. Just look the answers to these FAQs.
Boy, I wish I had something that good. But I guess 7 Day Acne Detox just wipes the floor with the competition. I guess I just have to quit doing this now, and get back to 9 to 5.
Perhaps you are smarter than me and can explain the dangers of skin clearing up too quickly. Perhaps it’s just too much for some people to handle and it makes them go crazy or something.
Please use the comment section to enlighten me.
Another amazing feature of the 7 Day Acne Detox is that the more acne you have the faster it clears up. Boy, do I now feel sorry for those with only a mild acne. Well, another reason for me to pack up and start writing my CV.
And of course the 7 Day Acne Detox doesn’t just cure your acne, it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. And on the other page it said that users also lose weight.
In an earlier post I mentioned that GD Labs is a diverse company marketing weightloss, anti-aging and wrinkle reduction products in addition to their acne treatment line. I guess this is where the diversity really pays off. They can pull from their research and experience in many fields to create one super product.
It really gets depressing when you are faced with such overwhelming competition.
OK, let’s get serious again.
I touched on this when I wrote about Acnexus, but it seems that there’s a ring of few ‘review’ sites that post glowing reviews of all the GD Lab’s products. Other products are referred with less than admiring comments.
Maybe, or perhaps the same people are also create these review sites. So far I’ve identified these as part of the ring:
There are probably more. And they seem to come up with new review sites all the time. Just like they seem to be creating new acne treatment products all the time.
They also post and ask questions at Yahoo! Answers and other similar sites. Of course their products always seem to work so well.
And the same thing happens at acne.org and other acne forums. For some reason the people posting good reviews of these products are always new members with one or only few posts. More established members seem a bit more skeptical.
They also sell their products at eBay.
At least these guys are involved:
At the time of writing at least other one of these had less than admiring comments on his/her guest book.
The smoke screen operation continues with supposedly independent people writing guides and reviews of these products at eBay. Just makes me wonder why they only review the products by GD Labs?
Here’s one example http://search.reviews.ebay.com/members/mckayster_W0QQuqtZg
Finally Rip Off Report had quite a few complaints about Garrett DeVore Labs. Here’s a link to the search results:
Again, I’m not saying they are going to take your money and run. But perhaps you want to hear the other side of the story also before putting your trust on these people.
