Dr Oz DynaMango:
On the Dr Oz Show today, he gave 7 Of The Biggest Scams that he has dealt with since The Doctor Oz Show began in 2009. One of his biggest pet peeves was the use of his name and picture on advertisements used to attract the public. One such product is African Mango. Last season, Dr Oz told his fans that African Mango was a “miracle in your medicine cabinet.” He mentioned the product once and since then many sites have used his name and image to promote their products. Dr Oz then showed one such site, Dynamango.com. In one weeks time, the site had received hundreds of visitors. 60 percent of those visitors, including Bonnie, a Dr Oz fan, clicked through to buy the product. When Dr Oz revealed that he had created the faux website as an experiment, Bonnie claimed that she felt duped because she trusted sites that appeared to give Dr Oz’s endorsement.

The photos in some of the ads even looked like they had been manipulated with Photoshop software—and not very well at that! Michelle Madhok reinforced that if the results look like they are too good to be true, chances are it’s a scam.
