If you haven’t rear the posts Buyer be Aware Parts 1 and 2, which triggered tens of comments which confirmed we were schemed, please read those two posts first, so this UPDATE makes sense.
These posts are a community service, as I do not get paid either for my research, writing or ads.
As you might recall one of the many well informed comments on my blog, was that it is the SAME group of people and they change the name of the products marketed only.
A few days ago I noticed on the side of my Facebook account three or four in very bad taste pictures all featuring Ellen Degeneres (by the way, she received People’s Award last night -Congrats, Ellen!). My first thought was, who is trying to trash Ellen? What kind of people are these? But… human curiosity at worked, I clicked and what did I see??? An ad about a COMBO of two skincare products (different names) which a woman Brenda “discovered,” and now she looked 20 years younger! As I continued to read I recognized the same pattern: ONLY 14 day trial (written in bold) and to return the jars half used and to call for a number (return merchandise)
I didn’t have time that day to check the entire article and take notes. This is when I wrote the post to check for updates. Well, there were no updates on the face creams, but the “scandalous” Ellen’s pictures kept showing up on the right side of my page!
I clicked on some Ellen pictures for a few days, but they took me to other sites, advertising and selling other products.
Today, surprise!!! One of the clicks on Ellen’s unbecoming pictures took me to a skin care COMBO ad, but under a different NAME! Since the names keep changing I will not mention them because clearly, it is the method we must understand!
Yet it was Brenda who discovered this combo and looked 20 years younger, there were still the ONLY 14- day trial and “no hassle” return( lol) policy and the two products HAD to be used together to work!
While I am not sure this is the same group using different products, or different people, I just wanted to let everyone know I will NEVER purchase any products which are advertised in such a manner. I learned my lesson.
In addition, LEAVE Ellen alone! She is a great comedian and hostess!
