Beware of a scam (not a “deepfake”) going around online that features country music star Miranda Lambert and claims she endorsed or created some sort of weight loss gummies or keto gummies or CBD gummy products or diet pills or supplements. She never featured or endorsed anything about these products, nor did Jodie Sweetin. It’s not true. None of it. A fake video with artificial intelligence (AI) audio is apparently going around on Meta on Facebook, Instagram, Audience Network, and Messenger, and the AI audio makes it sound like Miranda Lambert is endorsing the weight loss gummies or keto gummies or CBD gummy products, but it’s all a scam. The scam posts say, “Down 40 in 14 days, 2 away from my goal. Everything melts super fast, even in my most stubborn problem areas.” Keep in mind that scammers sometimes use products and company names without authorization, with the company having no involvement with the scams.
The Miranda Lambert weight loss gummies or keto gummies or CBD gummies scam videos and articles led to websites that claimed the products had been reviewed, endorsed, or mentioned by Fox News, USA Today, CBS News, CNN, Women’s Health, and NBC. Again, this wasn’t a thing that really happened. None of it.
The Miranda Lambert weight loss gummies scam videos and articles, as well as the fake reviews, were hosted on various scam websites. The fake articles sometimes led to a website for the product that showed a customer service and support phone number and email address.
If you were scammed by this weight loss gummies scam that used Miranda Lambert’s image and likeness, I recommend you contact the company or contact the payment method you used to make the purchase, such as your credit card company, and let them know you saw a scam article that falsely claimed a famous person or celebrity endorsed the product. Scams like these can hurt people, and I hope that my efforts here on my YouTube channel can help.
My advice on avoiding scams like these is this: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, look at the web address to make sure you’re actually on the publication that the article claims you’re on. Scammers have been known to copy the design of prominent news publishers like Time magazine, Fox News, CNN, and others, and they replicate that look on scam websites to fool people into thinking they’re reading from that publisher’s website, when in reality they’re reading a scam article. Finally, if you’re looking into some sort of medicinal product or something that’s supposed to make you look better or live better, ask your doctor. Generally speaking, there are so many snake oil products out there, so be careful.
Please tap the like button, the thumbs up button, as that will show Google and YouTube that my video has value, so that it can then land higher in Google search results and be seen by people who might be close to being scammed. Also, please tap the “Thanks” button if you would like to do so, as that would make my efforts worthwhile. Thank you for watching.
