Fat Loss Factor Spam On Pinterest And Tumblr, latest developments.

The fight against The Worst People In The World is heating up.

I don’t really understand how to use Pinterest just yet but apparently they’re getting flooded with Fat Loss Factor spam just like the tumblr users are. Just like on tumblr they are flooding fitness, weight loss, eating disorder and self harm related tags. Yes in case you missed it the first time, they are actually marketing a “diet” product to people suffering from eating disorders and self harm problems.

Like I said above; The Worst People In The World.

So I took it upon myself to try to do something about this, but it turns out I’m not the only one horrified, disgusted and offended by how this product aims to exploit vulnerable people to make an easy buck. This week both Buzzfeed and Blisstree have run articles on them as well.

Here is Buzzfeed’s report on  how Fat Loss Factor Diet Program Targets Anorexic Teens, and also Blisstree’s coverage of Fat Loss Factor Pro Anorexia Ads.

Meanwhile, a few more screen shots of posts that have since been deleted from the Fat Loss Factor facebook page.

This is a good one too.

Fat Loss Factor Scam

Look… I’ve said it all already about the dodgy marketing tactics most diet programs use, and how most them actually don’t produce results… but why take my word for it? They actually tell you right there on their own site…. here’s the screenshot!

Weight loss is not complicated. I’m not saying it’s EASY but it is not complicated. Determine your appropriate amount of calories per day, eat about that many calories each day, and train for up to an hour. That’s IT. Follow my FREE program and you’ll get results.
