    Weight loss scams can be extremely dangerous and lethal

    Plenty of people these days want to lose weight. Even if it takes a whole lot of cash while doing so. However this can be damaging and dangerous to ones health, especially if it's for a weight loss scam.

    Most scams will be pretty clear to the eye because they make outrageous claims for losing weight with none or little effort. These products or diets will seem to work at first, but the results are only temporary and can have serious side effects if the user isn't aware.

    Warning signs can be claims that say that you can lose weight while doing nothing, like when you're sleeping or sitting around. If it fails to recommend medical supervision or the doctors approval, this is a big no-no. If they ask for large amounts of cash in advance, this would be a huge warning sign and should walk away from this as soon as you hear it.

    If it's too good to be true, then it probably is. Before taking any product or dramatic changes in your lifestyle/diet you should consult with your doctor first. It's better to be safe than sorry.

    I noticed alot of the Australian scams include weight loss and recurring billing that you can never cancel. Be careful.
