Dr. Oz Exposes Dietary Supplement Scam Artists

Dietary Supplement

If you look around the web, you’ll see the face of Dr. Oz on the sales pages of numerous dietary supplement products. Commercial emails routinely tout products with the claim that “Dr. Oz recommends this,” even as clicking on a link often takes you to a dubious website that signs you up for a deceptive auto-ship program for a counterfeit product. (Seriously, some supplements sold today by con artists don’t even contain the ingredients they claim.)

The problem with these promotions is that they are fraudulently using Dr. Oz’s name. Dr. Oz doesn’t sell any dietary supplements, you see, and he doesn’t endorse specific brands or products.

After sending numerous cease and desist letters to the scammers to no avail, Dr. Oz jumped on an airplane with his camera crew and drove to the scammers’ place of business to confront them on camera! Click here to watch the exciting segment yourself, which almost reminds me of an episode of COPS.

Dr. Oz doesn’t hold back, either. He marches right through their offices and warehouse and even grabs video of the people fleeing on foot. Truly, this is one of the most exciting Dr. Oz moments in history — and one of the most morally justified, too, in my opinion.

The people responsible for running the fraudulent “Dr. Oz” ads, according to this report, include:

Richard Fowler
Ryan Fowler
Oscar Maria
Nathan Martinez

… all reportedly operating out of San Diego, California, marketing “Garcinia Cambogia” supplements.


Do your homework before you buy

I suspect Dr. Oz would share in the final message of this article: Do your homework before you buy supplements. Know who you’re buying from. Steer clear of scammy-looking promotions. Ask the manufacturer if they’ve tested for heavy metals. Check out the reputation of the manufacturer.

There are a great many honest, quality-minded supplement manufacturers in the marketplace today, by the way. NOW Foods, in my opinion, is one of them. GAIA Herbs is my favorite herbal product company. I just tested the Whole Foods brand of Ginkgo herbs, by the way, and found the heavy metals to be remarkably low. Whole Foods seems to have some solid quality control going on with their in-house brand (from what I’ve tested so far, anyway).

Do your research and learn who to trust. And don’t be duped by some fly-by-night operation that says Dr. Oz (or the Health Ranger, for that matter) has endorsed their product. Chances are it’s a scam.

This new confrontational “activism” style by Dr. Oz really has me interested in what else he’s covering. Check out more episodes of Dr. Oz at:
