It can be confusing to keep up with what’s what in the weight loss industry. New supplements hit the market seemingly on a daily basis. The news constantly releases “new information” about certain foods and such. We’re told by the experts that something is good for us, then a little down the road they come out and say “Wait, we might have been wrong on that…” It’s confusing, we know.
But that’s why we try our best to keep you up to date on new findings and one of the newest ones today is Garcinia Cambogia. You’ve probably never heard of it, right? Don’t worry, we hadn’t heard of it until recently either. Dr. Oz talked about it on his show and we took notice. Garcinia is definitely not your run of the mill weight loss pill. It’s different. And yes, we’re excited about it.
On the downside though, there are people out there who are trying to take advantage of you and the situation. They see that there’s an enormous demand for Garcinia Cambogia extract, so they come out with their own product in hopes of making some easy money. That’s why you have to be careful when buying it. And that’s why we’re doing a series of reviews to help you avoid possible scams.
Today, we want to warn you about “Advanced Garcinia Cambogia”. We certainly recommend NOT buying this product. Why? Let’s have a look…
The Well-Known Free Bottle Scam
The very first thing we don’t like about Advanced is the fact that they’re using the free bottle tactic to get your money. Lots of scammers do this and anytime you see an offer for a free bottle of any supplement you should run the other way. The way it works can vary, but you’ll almost always end up regretting it.
Sometimes they offer a free bottle, but you first have to give them all of your personal and contact information. The offer is never displayed until you submit their form. You fill it all out, you hand over all your details and give them permission to start blasting you with emails or phone calls. Then you’re taken to the “free offer” only to realize that your free bottle only comes when you buy another bottle – it’s a “bonus free” bottle added to your order. Not exactly free, right?
Other times, there really is a free bottle offered and sent to you. But what you don’t realize is that now they’ll keep sending you new bottles, usually on a monthly basis. You’re locked into a subscription and you’ll have a hard time getting out of it. You try to call them and you get recordings or are given the run around. It’s almost always a mess and something you don’t want to deal with.
It’s Not Even THEIR Product!
This is a huge red flag. I wanted to look a little deeper into their free bottle offer so I could tell you about it and save you the hassle. But when you click on the order button, guess what? You get nothing. Nada. A big, blank, white page sitting on your screen. Their site doesn’t even work. But as you’re being taken to that empty page, if you watch closely, you’ll see it’s redirecting you through an “affiliate” link. These people are just trying to sell someone else’s product for a commission.
Poor Presentation Means They Don’t Even Care
This was very surprising. For such a popular brand that lots of people are looking for, the people behind Advanced Garcinia Cambogia can’t even take the time to write or pay someone to write decent copy for their site. If you read the page, it’s easy to see it was hastily thrown together. If they don’t take pride in something as important and simple as creating a quality site, then what kind of product do you think they’re selling? Yep. More than likely it’s poorly manufactured and they really don’t care. They just want your money.
You Don’t Even Know WHAT You’re Buying
No Ingredients Shown – No Label – Not Enough HCA
This is another big no-no and instantly tells me that no one should be buying this product. They have lots of pretty, skinny girls. Lots of beautiful graphics. But where’s the real information? Where’s the details about what this product contains? Where’s the ingredients? Where’s the label? How much HCA does it have? Keep in mind, for a Garinia extract to work effectively, it needs to have a minimum of 50% HCA – but they tell you nothing about how much their product has. That usually means that no, it doesn’t have the recommended amount and that yes, it probably has filler ingredients.
This is pretty obvious! Advanced Garcinia Cambogia is a product you should clearly stay away from. There are so many things wrong with this site and so many red flags that it’s ridiculous. They don’t care about their site, which is their ticket to gaining your trust. They don’t even tell you what’s in the product. They’re using the too commonly used ‘free bottle’ scam to snatch your info or trick you into a subscription. This is by far one of the worst Garcinia products that I’ve come across. I’d never buy this and recommend the same to you.
