Dr Oz: Online Scams Targeting Celebrities
It’s nothing new for celebrities to be angry and even sue over companies using their pictures to sell products. Even Dr Oz’s identity was used to try to sell weight loss products. Images and names have been used by internet scammers to sell fake products for years, and the problem only seems to be growing. The latest target was Biggest Loser host and Days of Our Lives star Alison Sweeney. A weight loss supplement company used Alison’s name and face to incorrectly imply she endorsed their product. Alison is now fighting back, defending her name, and hoping to warn others about fake product scams.
