Acai Berry Scam… how stupid can people be?

acai berry scam

Now this really is stupid with a capital “S”.  I have blasted on and on, in my blog about this Acai Berry Scam or that Acai Berry Scam and how the scammers try to ambush you through Google with a trial offer and then steal your money from your credit card to the tune of usually $180.00.  Then you need to cancel your credit card because there is no customer service to tell that you didn’t order that product.

Almost all of the scams have a woman’s name attached to it because they know that woman are gullible enough to believe that a woman would never try to scam desperate vunerable women.  The reality is that these scams are created by mostly Russian and Ukrainian mobsters that don’t give a shit and just want your money. They can stash it into an offshore account somewhere never to be heard from again, except when a new magical potion comes to market and Oprah endorses it.

Well, here’s what started this rant.  To show you how f@%kin’ stupid these people are they actually commented on my blog… a blog that has warned of the scams… they thought that it was a good idea to comment with a trackback to the very site that I’m telling you about.

I will say it again for the really stupid!!!!!!!! If you see a website with any of the following but really any women’s name, the word weightloss after it, you click on it and give them your credit card, YOU are a f@%kin’ IDIOT!  Here are the top five hits as I have said before:  erinsweightloss, lisasweightloss, beckysweightloss, sallysweightloss, tinasweightloss… do you get the picture????? but if you see edithsweightloss, or gertrudesweightloss or vickysweightloss it’s still a SCAM!

Hi, hope this comment comes through I’m still new to this whole blogging thing.

nice post! I discovered your blog while looking for other people’s weight loss experiences. I’ve actually just started blogging about my “http://www.joansweightloss.com” weight loss calculator – I lost over 30 pounds in a month with a diet I developed!

I would appreciate it if you could stop by my “http://www.joansweightloss.com” weight loss blog and let me know what you think.

Warmest wishes,

-Joan

Please do yourself a favor and look at the e-mail that this is coming from and notice the URL…http://joansweightloss.com  Do you notice the “Woman’s” name…very good, “Joans”, that would be the woman’s name I was speaking about… and look, the word “weightloss” comes after Joan.  So that must mean that this my friends is a scam… do you f@%kin’ get it now.

Hey Rocco,

I just found your post. I wrote about this Joan lady on my site like 10 minutes ago. Let me know what you think.

Her site and promotion of it really pissed me off. I want to warn as many people as I can about it.

In your post above you have her site linked twice, both are increasing her search rankings. Might I suggest you add rel=”nofollow” to the links right after the <a and before the href.

Like this. <a rel=”nofollow” href

Just a thought. People will still be able to click it but search engines will skip it.

Thanks for warning people about this acai berry scam.
Steve

My mom’s name is Joan and I have a sister Joan, too. Maybe I should buy from oeyyeyylyeey@gmail.com (is that a Russian name?)!

It is definitely amazing what people will fall for. 🙁 I think the heart of it all is that so many people are generally lazy. They don’t want to put out the effort that it takes to get rid of the fat and build their health. So eager are they to avoid actual effort that any tantalizing little lie – be it acaia berries or hoodia or colon cleansing – becomes ridiculously alluring. Common sense and caution get thrown to the wind because by those that would rather waste enormous amounts of money believing in magic pills.
