If you search for for anything weight loss-related on Google, you may run across supposedly "independent" reviews, review sites, and sites that "warn" you about weight loss scams. Unfortunately, many of these sites are trying to separate you from your money. If you look closely, these sites are populated with affiliate links. Affiliate links allow the marketers behind these sites to be given a commission for each sale they generate. Affiliate links present a huge conflict of interest as it is in the marketer's interest to say anything to generate a sale. They are being paid to be shills for the items they are trying to sell.
All these sites are scams. This includes sites that claim to tell you the "truth" about the product or "expose" the product. And it includes the sites that "warn" you that a particular weight loss product is a scam... and then try to peddle a different scam. Don't be suckered by any of these sites- marketers will lie and say anything to generate a sale.
The unfortunate truth is that you can't trust a lot of the information you see on the Internet.
"There's a sucker born every minute."
