Dodgy diet plans ... the rest

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

It's not certain that everything is uncertain.

The counter is now up to 26 for the fad diet pushers. The latest to join
the marketplace is rx_misse with what looks like yet another version of the
Greenlane Diet.

Although many of the full list have dropped out of site, a large number of
these still continue to peddle their wares.

tamarah1 has even set up an online forum:
WE HAVE A FREE ONLINE FORUM WITH LOADS OF SUCESS
STORIES-LINK WILL BE SENT ON COMPLETION OF AUCTION.24/7
SUPPORT.
and is still flogging these off at $18 a pop.

Nineteen diet plans ... all of which violate TradeMe's ebook policy.
**HOW TO LOSE 5 KG'S IN 3 DAYS**I lost 5.3 kg's (X11)
**I LOST 5.3 KG'S IN 3 DAYS**you can to! (X8)

Fantastic diet plan for instant weightloss.

This is not an e-book.

This is a 2 page factsheet that contains a 3 day meal planner for fat loss.

If it is not an e-book then how come you opt to send it via email?
Shipping:
$0.00 via e-mail

Update --- all withdrawn by TradeMe

As seen in this thread
http://scambusters.co.nz/forum/viewtopi ... &start=135
for selling Internet TV.

-> The best diet on Trademe you could buy, we have seen the others and nothing compares to our diet!

.... So what are you waiting for?

If item is purchased "Buy Now" shipping will be free.
=========================================

I have always struggled with my weight. And now with this diet I have lost it!

Stop the FAD diets that do not work, Atkins diets that stop all intake of Carbs or those FAT only diets!

When you purchase this diet you are buying a complete guide to loosing weight. You will not have to do any research yourself! Its all been done.

You will receive a nice printed booklet - bound together in a professional manner, and shipped straight to your address.

So no more excuses, get leaner for the summer and make yourself feel better - BUY NOW TODAY!
These HAVE to be copied from elsewhere ... seeing this guy has already tried to sell information from the net. Plus the diet is nothing more than a fad itself

Oh ... and it's nice that TM have given them their own category.

Home>Health & Beauth>Weight Loss

I'm sure that wasn't always there? Perhaps they got what used to be the
NZ Art category. :roll:

I've never seen that category before, and it's obviously one that TM value
more than NZ Original Art.

Here's our same vendor selling this on eBay and it's an eBook.
Digital delivery only: This is a digital item. Digital delivery information
provided by the seller will be made available immediately upon payment.
File type and requirements: You will need winzip or windows XP, and
Adobe acrobat reader
And he's punting it with "full resale rights".

http://search.ebay.com.au/_W0QQsassZvincenz2001

There's a small sample of the recipe on his website which involves chopping
lots of veges then frying them in oil. Guaranteed to lose weight? Sounds
dodgy to me.

Does printing out an eBook make it TM compliant? No it doesn't.

Quite right, according to TradeMe's rules if the information is sold outside of copyright laws, it becomes a banned item.

How many of these diet planners copied their information from a website and claimed it as their own?
How many of these diets own the resale rights they claim to posess?
How many are qualified in the science of effective and healthy weight loss?

Not many.
Most of these planners are breaking all sorts of terms and conditions as we speak. And the problem is just going to get worse now that they have their own category to list their printed out e-books.
