Anti-Aging Scams Are Just As Popular As Weight Loss Scams

Anti-Aging Scams Come In Various Forms
Scam artists have polished their skills after seeing the demand for anti-aging products. Their tricks are no different from the methods used by weight loss scammers. What they do is play with people’s minds to entice them with unimaginable claims. Below are some examples:
No Supportive Evidence
Anti-aging scam artists usually make claims directly to the media without having any supportive evidence to prove the authenticity of their products. They claim that their discovery is being suppressed by the authorities. Others even go on to say they are being persecuted adding, in the end, that they are confident of being vindicated.
Their Choice of Words
Scam artists are well-versed in using phrases such as “scientific breakthrough” “secret ingredient” and “active remedy.” They also claim to have sold the product to thousands of satisfied customers. Another claim that is often used is that the product has been used for centuries and that it has “withstood the test of time.”
No Physical Stores
None of the claims can be substantiated in any manner; if the FDA has not authenticated the product, it’s a scam! People who fall victims are made to purchase the products from well-designed websites that show well-dressed “doctors” in lab technicians and microscopes; this is to give the impression that they are authentic.
They Only Seek To Trap People
Most of the scam artists who sell anti-aging scams just intend to trap their clients; they know full well they are not likely to be tracked by the authorities once they make a sale. Some convince their clients to make a purchase by offering a money back guarantee if the product is unsatisfactory. They do not hesitate to use the pictures of celebrities and even renowned scientists, who they say have authenticated the product. Going even further, they make claims that anti-aging just requires a single hormone from the body to be manipulated.
These people are clever enough not to mention any potential side effect; they leave everything that is possibly harmful in the fine print. They even go ahead to claim that the product is an alternative to traditional FDA-approved medicines. Unfortunately, it has become quite common for people to fall for these scams, which encourages the motley group of scam artists to expand their business by major margins.
If you are looking for anti-aging remedies, you must consult your doctors to help you understand the kind of remedies that will help you best. Do not rush to the Internet’ you may fall prey!
