Have you seen Diet Pills Watchdog’s page on Facebook? Its ads on the Internet? Or, its diet pill choices at dietpillswatchdog.com?
The outfit claims to be “100% Independent” in reviewing and recommending dietary supplements so that consumers can “make the right choice and start losing weight!”
Really? How can the Watchdog be independent when it gets paid for promoting certain products?
According to the fine print on its website, Diet Pills Watchdog receives commissions from supplement companies on some of the products it recommends. That could explain why an acai berry supplement is one of its top three choices for weight loss, despite the fact that there’s no credible evidence that acai berries help people lose weight (unless it’s the weight of their wallets).
The Diet Pills Watchdog, however, is safe from the U.S. watchdog, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), since its contact address is an offshore financial services company in the Seychelle Islands in the Indian Ocean.
