Dr Oz Website Scams

Doctor Oz was back for his 4th season and he was Mad As Hell! Today he took on those companies that are using his name and image to promote their own products. First off, Doctor Oz warned that he DOES NOT promote any specific products so if you are receiving emails or texts with his name and image, delete them.

Want to help Dr Oz fight these unscrupulous manufacturers? On today’s show, Dr Oz showed you how.

Jessica, an audience member, was a victim of these scams. She has received countless ads for beauty products and more with Dr Oz’s name and image attached to the email or text. She even showed Dr Oz a sample she had in her phone.

Amazon & Facebook Help Dr Oz Take Back His Name

Dr Oz said he wasn’t going to let this happen anymore and that he was taking back his name! In the last segment, he showed you how these countless ads were created and now he understood how it was so easy to do it. In order to take back his name, Dr Oz reached out to the websites. He also had his legal department get involved. They contacted Amazon.com and Facebook and even had a follow up phone call. He simply wanted to make sure you weren’t continued to be duped by these false claims. Amazon.com and Facebook complied with his requests to take down these advertisements. (Uh, of course they did! It’s Dr Oz.) Facebook had their team research the pages and will comply accordingly. Amazon.com was in the process of removing the items that the Dr Oz Show identified.

Tech Specialist, Sree Sreenivasan, said that anyone can help rid the Internet of these false advertisements. If you see these ads, you should report it immediately. Better yet, take down the website address so that when you report it, you’ll have the exact link. Once you do that, send it to Amazon.com or Facebook (or any other offender) so that they may correct the problem.

  1. I ordered Saffron X and it said was endorsed by Dr. Oz. to lose weight. Would this Saffron X be a scam also. I believe they should give people their money back if it is a scam…this would only be fair to Dr. Oz. and the public. This would stop alot of false endorsements. Thanks!

  2. Dayanara Ryelle says:

    I saw something in USA Weekend that said Dr. Oz endorsed it. How can I report it?

  3. This website states it is connected with Dr. Oz. Is it? I doubt it.

    I recieved an email with Dr. OZ video about Garcinia Cambogia and Green coffee pills also. I was told that if I ordered 1 I could get the second free. So I did order and give my Visa number. I have been billed $168.89 for 5 bottles of the coffe bean pills ,$159.12 for the 2 Garcinia Cambogia. I canceled the order when I found out the charges on THE SAME DAY 13th Sept., I got billed on the 14th and again on the 17th the order was not canceled. When I recieved the seven bottles I sent them back not opened. Sent them by tracking and insured .by U.S.P.S. they got them back and told me they will think of MABIE giving me my money back because I did not ask if I could send them back. ( CHANGE DATES TO AUGUST NOT SEPT ) sorry. The total on my Visa is $328.01 and I cant pay it and they wont reply as to what they are going to do . It’s been 10 days so far. Will think about paying attention to any OZ onfo ever again. Just in case this explanes , I’m an almost 80 year old who used to believe everyone. Sincerely V Ingram.

  5. I saw how angry you have been with sites stealing your identity to endorse products that in my case have been actual worms. Here is the latest one I received.

  6. Firmativ skin cream used Dr. Oz’s photo & a comment. I ordered it but returned it because
    it turned my face red. I doubt Dr. Oz would endorse this product.

  7. I got an email for an advertisement showing a broadcast of Dr. OZ on one of his shows. I want to report this to Dr. Oz himself so he can prosecute these people. I had heard Dr. Oz speak of these people who are using his name to scam people, I don’t believe a lot of the diet crazed hype. I choose not to waste money on products that promise unrealistic goals.

  8. this looks like a scam to me………….????

  9. they offer an add using dr. oz’s face picture as an endorsement for their products. two face creams one free and the other $85.00. the way they trick you is since the first cream is free you sign up …for it…then the next page pops up and you see a picture of the first free cream jar and a second picture of new face cream jar with a different name. the add inisists one has to use both creams to achieve results. however this second vit c cream is $85.00. well I didn’t sign up for that one…I got a message that I was not allowed to only order the free sample of the moisturinzing type cream and not also order the vit c cream…I told them too bad I don’t want to pay that amount of money for any beauty product. I expected to never receive the freebee. I ordered the freebee in December and just got it today 1/22…one jar receipt no charge $00.00. I was pretty happy. then we found our bank account had been charged the $85.00….and I never ordered nor received the advertised vit c cream?????? I called the customer service phone number and got a Hispanic woman who spoke so fast it sounded like a foreign language..i asked her to slow down that I could not understand her…she managed to get my file up with me spelling my name email and address out loud. I told her my story and said I wanted the money put back into my bank account..she argued with me speaking loud and fast again…I think she meant to get me confused and upset so I would hang up…asked for her supervisor ….all of a sudden shestopped….one moment…20 minutes I waitied…she once more said hello and I said no not you….your supervisor please…she said in very clear English …I don’t have one….I was shocked now you are fibbing so you don’t get into trouble for being unable to accommodate a client. I know its you ….you made me wait 20 minutes while you got your supervisor whom you at that time believed you did have since you said ok and I will get her. when you knew you didn’t have one????? that does not make sense…now you pretend to be your supervisr by talking clearer (as you could not before) and trying to fool me into believing you were someone different….nope…now she goes on about she doesn’t have a sup…I told her “we all have someone above us” now find this person please. she began yelling at me in what sounded like Spanish to me…I told her to slow down…speak clear…stop yelling…as she would not honor my request to put the money back int o my aaccount…would not let me speak to her supervisor..then tried to pretend she was the supervisor…and would once more not accommodate my wishes but reverted back to yelling at me in spainish ..I told her to take a night class in “how to speak the English language”. or go back to Mexico! she said “THATS IT !!” AND HUNG UP ON ME…

  10. I DON’T WANT TO CHANGE ANYTHING THAT I WROTE. TO DO SO, WOULD BE TO CHANGE THE FACTS AND I DON’T BELIEVE IN SMOOTHING OVER A CONVERSATION WITH A “CUSTOMER SERVICE REP” WHO DID NOT LISTEN TO MY CONCERNS; TALKED OVER MY QUESTIONS/COMMENTS; SPOKE LOUD AND FAST WITH A STRONG SPAINISH ACCENT; WOULD NOT ACCOMADATE HER SPEECH TO HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HER ANSWERS AND RESPOND UPON WHAT SHE WAS SAYING; LIED TO ME ABOUT SAYING ..YES, SHE WOULD LET ME SPEAK WITH HER SUUP..LEFT ME HANG 20 MIN WAITING…TRIED TO IMPERSONATE HER SUPS VOICE ..TELLING ME THIS TIME SLOWLY AND CLEAR ..NO REFUND..WHEN I CHALLENGED HER BY SAYING , I DONT WANT TO GO ALL OVER THIS WITH YOU ..PLEASE GET YOUR SUP…SHE SAID “I DONT HAVE ONE” I SAID “SO YOU TRIED TO MAKE ME THINK YOU WERE YOUR SUPERVISOR???” I DONT HAVE ONE…MY REQUEST WAS NEITHER HEARD NOR RESPONDED TO APPROPRIATELY. I WAS YELLED AT IN BROKEN ENGLISH..DECEIVED AND LIED TO…I WAS NOT TREATED WITH DIGNITY NOR ANY LEVEL OF RESPECT AND SHE HUNG UP ON ME..CALLED OUR HOME TALKING WITH MY HUSBAND.. WHAT NERVE..HOW INAPPROPRIATE AND UNPROFESSIONAL…I DECIDED THIS WAS A SCAM..THE NAME OF THE CO GSCM FULLFILLMENTS PHONE NUMBER WAS DIFFERENT FROM HERS…HER CALL CAME FROM FLORIDA AND THE COPANY HAS A LA CALIFORNIA ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER. I CALLED IT AND IT JUST RANG AND RANG AND RANG…..HHMMMMMM

  11. SCAM WEB SITE…IF YOU WILL NOT PRINT THE TRUTH….YOU DO NOT REPRESENT THE TRUTH ON ANY LEVEL….GOOD DAY SIR…

  12. Dear Dr. Oz, Please review the following, fraudulent internet practice: Yahoo ‘sponsored’ claim: “For 4.50 shipping charges”: And your credit/debit card number: special offer.’ Equinox anti aging serum and RVTL cream. Fraudulent price $400.00 plus. Dear Sir, before the easy access of the internet we were not bombarded with the ‘youth, wrinkle free world of the media and the many shylocks who prey on the insecurities of seniors. It would add to your program and your reputation a great service to us seniors if you were to have an audience entirely of seniors to report publicly; who and how they were rooked: I thought I was buying a birthday gift for my eldest daughter, who has MS, and all I got was two orders of each for the astronomical price of $400.00 plus. The boxes came with no invoice, no confirmation and no company name; which , luckily I was able to get from my bank when they filed a “FRAUD” report. The shipping came from 4 different sources in plain boxes with just an address. When I called these people; Equinoxbeautites, in Bluffdale, Utah -855 531-7965 and Sheridan Envisage 877 316-1859 Sparks, NV. they refused to take back the product and refund my money saying that I had signed an agreement, which I never did. I am a retired 75 year old, Exceptional education teacher and volunteer at a facility for adults with intellectual and development disabilities. I have 4 successful children; the youngest two I raised as a single dad. And my youngest was nominated Airman of The Year 2014. I pray Sir, you will heed my suggestion and stand up for us. We seniors need a compassionate advocate who will stand up for us, who seem to stand alone amid all these spurious, bogus and fraudulent people on the internet market place. Respectfully, Jose M. Feliciano PS: Please do no hesitate to contact me if you need more information.
