I'm getting an advert for 'weight loss capsules' on the right hand side of every page.

Product here

Is it legit?

Because it screams scam to me?

Tee2072 Wed 14-Aug-13 10:49:52

In the MPU position? Because right now I have Hewes & Curtis trying to convince me to buy a shirt.

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 10:55:10

What's MPU please? blush

It's on the right hand side of the page under Discussions of the day.

Although right now the ad is for a breast pump...but as soon as I refresh the page the weight loss ad comes back.

It can't be true can it? 22lb in a month? Is that even physically possible?!

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 10:57:23

It looks like a scam to me IsIt

But the chap in the advert with the dodgy beard is quite nice looking

Bet you need to sign up to a re-occurring card payment.

Tee2072 Wed 14-Aug-13 11:30:01

Sorry, MPU, Mid-page unit, yes the one under DOD.

I haven't seen that one. I now have something called the Cuppa Club......

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 11:36:40

I've still got it.

I wonder if it's anything to do with the fact I was posting on ICBINEG's diet industry thread last night?

Can anyone else see this ad?

thornrose Wed 14-Aug-13 11:38:47

I have it and I haven't posted on a diet thread.

CiderwithBuda Wed 14-Aug-13 11:42:07

I have it too. Had th breast pump one but pressed refresh and got the diet one. Def screams scam.

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 11:45:05

Oh that's good then...thanks.

I was panicking that I had a virus or something.

He really is rather handsome though, isn't he? grin

Tee2072 Wed 14-Aug-13 11:59:17

I keep getting that way too expensive shirt advert. I want to see handsome diet scam man! grin

magimedi Wed 14-Aug-13 12:00:25

I've got it too - am not opening it but don't like it from what's been said.

MimsyBorogroves Wed 14-Aug-13 12:04:24

I've got Jeremy Street Business Shirts.

I don't like them.

MimsyBorogroves Wed 14-Aug-13 12:05:23

Looking at the link in Worra's post, it automatically defaults to being in Polish for me.

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 12:27:26

Tee Handsome diet scam man isn't even wearing a shirt grin

And he looks great in both his before and after weight loss scam pics wink

Polish? That's strange Mimsy

StickyProblem Wed 14-Aug-13 12:28:14

Yes mine is in Polish too Mimsy

Tee2072 Wed 14-Aug-13 12:42:57

Worra you tease! I clicked your link, all I see is a lady!

::bitterly disappointed::

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 14:26:42

There's a lady in the link when you click it

But handsome diet scam man is on the MN advert grin

No word from HQ on this?

JacqueslePeacock Wed 14-Aug-13 21:38:13

I have handsome diet scam man too. Surely this is not legit?

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 21:41:22

I haven't got him any more

Give him back you hussy!

I want to stroke him one more time sad

JacqueslePeacock Wed 14-Aug-13 21:45:03

Sorry, all I have now is a deranged-looking Boden lady looking over her shoulder with a manic smile.

Sconset Wed 14-Aug-13 21:46:31

It's like the ones for 'cosmetic doctors hate this 5- year old housewife... for her younger looking skin' thingy. Has to be scammers!
I have the lardy bearded chap too... though I bet the 2nd picture is 18mo after the first! (or vice versa of course wink)

coffeeinbed Wed 14-Aug-13 21:47:56

Mine is flashing.
What do I win?

WorraLiberty Wed 14-Aug-13 21:50:47
