We are so excited about our new scientific breakthrough! We know losing weight is important
to you, so we’ve created “Lose It Overnight,” a product that’s all natural, totally safe,
and 100% effective! That right?
Natural? Are you kidding me? Our products are laced with stuff we don’t even put on
the label.

heart attack, or stroke?
But it sounds good – we’re trying to move product.
Ok. Go with it

Yeah, but it comes at a price – we get 2 grand…and they could get painful swelling,
infection and permanent scarring.

Don’t Fall for a Fraud – promises for extreme weight loss can cloud your best judgment.
At best, you might only lose your money, at worst these products could seriously harm
you.
It’s your health, protect it! – As a consumer, you are in the best position to protect yourself
from fraudulent weight loss products. Just because a product is available in stores,
offered by clinics, or is expensive does not mean it will be safe or effective.
So, be careful when it comes to weight loss products – why? Well, dietary supplements,
in general, are not FDA approved or evaluated by the FDA before they reach market.
And currently there is no injectable product approved by the FDA to dissolve fat.
We’re not rolling right now are we? Cause if any lawyers see this we are in big trouble.
Don’t let fraud make you a victim. You could lose so much more than weight. Learn more
