"With this pill, you can eat anything you want and lose weight, and it gets rid of your cravings, too!"

If you can supposedly eat anything you want with their pills and lose weight, you should not have to follow a "sensible eating plan", and you should be able to indulge your cravings.

What are some other advertising scams you can think of?

Using the French "faux" to mean fake or false when many people think "faux" means "fox" or "four"
Before and after pictures where the "before" picture is done in bad lighting
Movie promos that convince you the movie isn't crap

I don't know why they always put cars in the ad though?
Voted : Free gift just for trying our product
Yeah the truth is they can't sell the worthless junk so they offer something people actually want as a gift so they sell thap piece of sh*t.
I think those before and after shots are crap. I have a feeling that they're actors who gain weight and then lose it back easily (while taking the pills of course) so they can get actual "before and after" pictures.

The people in these pics aren't your average person wanting to lose weight, they look too much like body builders in the after shots.

Voted : Smart-lease
There's a sucker born every minute.
Voted : Before and after pictures where the "before" picture is done in bad lighting
YEAH like we were looking at before and after liposuction pics and the before pics on some of them were a totally different lighting and stretched! Like they took the pic and stretched it! LOL
