Hours into the new decade, and nowadays and soon to be weeks to months; the 2020 weight loss diet pill craze is peaking online and one of the new ‘breakout’ fat burning supplements is known as “Rapid Fast Keto Boost”.
The Internet is literally being littered with keto diet pill weight loss claims, being featured on Shark Tank, and have shown the bare minimum in terms of proof, product ingredients, and company transparency.
Now, since the early days of Oprah featuring Acai Berry to the Doctor Oz TV show highlighting potential appetite suppressing, carb blocking extracts of raspberry ketones, garcinia cambogia, forskolin, or white kidney bean extract; the Internet has become a breeding ground for overpromising and underdelivering when it comes to ‘lose weight overnight’ diet pills.
As New Year’s Resolutions are in full effect, tis the season for questionable how to lose weight fast claims and products promising high hopes with nothing to back it except wishy-washy marketing tactics, hype-fluff language and advertising gimmicks of false celebrity endorsements. The reason we are reviewing this keto diet pill scam is because a member of our team was scammed into these ‘free trial keto supplements’ by not seeing the fine print and getting charged $89.95 just 14 days after ordering the “free sample” and paying shipping/handling of $4.95.
It was safe to say these strategies of making colorful keto diet pill claims and positioning the fine print terms where anyone not wondering what was next wouldn’t see them would probably dupe many people interested in ‘trying before buying’.
Now, let’s quickly review the Rapid Fast Keto Boost path of advertising to sale and learn how to avoid these pesky, often risky (hard to cancel) free trial supplement offers.
Was Rapid Fast Keto Boost Really on Shark Tank?
The short and sweet answer is obviously N-O. No, Shark Tank TV never featured a Rapid Fast Keto Boost supplement nor has the popular television show ever featured a keto diet product.
A quick search online will reveal that many celebrities have been falsely associated with these keto diet pill scams; from Dr. Oz, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Melissa McCarthy, Drew Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Kevin Smith, Amanda Holden, Ryan and Briana Culberson to Meghan Markle; the fraudulent method of faking endorsements from famous individuals is heavily used to trick unsuspecting consumers into buying these highly-questionable revolving-door keto diet pill products.
From a picture that was sent to us by our readers, these ketogenic-centric diet pill advertisements usually start out with a headline like, “Weight Loss Pill That Naturally Burns Fat Gets Biggest Deal In Shark Tank History“
There is also the subtle nuance that if a user wanted to go directly to the official Rapid Fast Keto Boost website at https://www.rapidfastketoboost.com/ that they wouldn’t have access and be forbidden to enter the site (this is rather shocking).
Rapid Fast Keto Boost Free Trial Offer
Oddly, after filling out the personal information and going to the Rapid Fast Keto checkout page there is no pricing shown for the 1, 3 or 5 bottle option. Not until after scrolling down the length of the entire Rapid Fast Keto product sales page, you will find a ‘contact us’ popup link that lists the following as contact details:
- Phone: 1 (844) -931 – 0245
- Hours: 8 am to 9 pm EST daily
- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Address: Rapidfastketoboost Returns
PO Box 30111-51
Salt Lake City, UT 84130
Now, once you click on the terms of questions, a few things stand out that should be attention-grabbing.
First, the price of Rapid Fast Keto Boost is 5 diet pill bottles for $199 or $28.57 each (this is after applying an apparent mail-in rebate) or $129/$33.33 each after the rebate and one bottle is an eye-popping $69.94 (when most of these keto diet pills cost under $5/$10 max to make (especially at scale). Oh, they also share that shipping and handling is non-refundable. Then, as the list continues: you authorize them to initiate a one-time charge to your credit card, in which is for the ‘free’ trial shipping which will go out 24-48 hours and arrive approximately three-five business days later.
They do go on to say anyone who has an unopened PACKAGE (not bottle mind you) can receive a full refund within 30 days and your account with be credited within 2-4 weeks of sending your product back to Rapid Fast Keto Boost PO Box above.
It is safe to say there is nothing ‘free' about this Rapid Fast Keto Boost sample offer, as you will be continually billed month after month until you call and cancel (which is reportedly much more difficult than it should be) using the phone and email information sourced above.
Closing Thoughts on Fake Keto Diet Pill Scams
Unfortunately, these as seen on TV or featured Shark Tank Keto diet pill scams are much more frequent than anyone could imagine and run rampant online. And just because you did your research on ‘Rapid Fast Keto Boost' doesn't mean the same product will be called ‘Ultra Fast Keto Boost' tomorrow. Case in point, do your homework when researching and ultimately buying a weight loss diet pill in 2020. These are very elaborate schemes used to grab as much money as possible from the consumer without them noticing unless reading pages and pages of terms and conditions at the very bottom of the website sales page.
While these fraudulent keto weight loss products are a dime a dozen and could be switched to a new name, website or bottle label, be mindful when entering your credit card information anywhere online, especially for diet pills claiming to be featured on Shark Tank. That does not mean the actual ketogenic diet plan is bad as it was a top ten trending diet in 2019, or even that these randomly named keto diet supplements do not work, but it is the duping of users' payment information while not openly disclosing the policies these brands operate by.
