Have you seen this ad?
I was scrolling through my Yahoo news feed yesterday, like I do every morning, when I stumbled across it.
After I clicked on it, it led to a page that screamed the following headline:
Denzel Washington’s ED Cure Has Experts In Awe & Big Pharma Is Terrified
It’s not the first time I’ve seen an ad like this on yahoo.
In fact, just last week I posted an article that took down the claim that Morgan Freeman developed some cure for ED as well.
And in an article I published back in early September, I broke down another similar scam with a supplement called Alpha TRT.
This particular page is claiming that Denzel Washington, in conjunction with Dr. Phil, developed some revolutionary new pill called Vigatron that literally cures ED.
They quote him as saying the following:
Dr. Phil and I have done our research, and spoken to industry insiders. And they helped us create this product Vigatron and boy can I tell you, this stuff is potent. I’ve tried Viagra, I’ve tried Red Ginseng, I’ve tried Cialis.
Vigatron blow them all away.
Pretty amazing, right? I mean, a “cure” for ED!?
That would be one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of modern times.
The simple fact is, this entire story is completely fictional.
And I’m going to prove it to you here.
Red Flag #1: This is NOT The Daily News Website
Despite looking like it, this is not in fact the Daily News website.
Look at the url in the address bar, and tell me what it says.
That’s right. It doesn’t say “DailyNews.com”, but instead says “e-newsworthy.com/denzel”.
Want more proof?
Here’s a cool trick…
Change the “denzel” at the end of that url to “zuck-o” and watch what happens.
I’ll do it for you to save some time.
It’s amazing, isn’t it.
The website just magically changed from “Daily News” to “Entertainment Today” with the click of a mouse.
That’s because this entire Denzel Washington ED pills article is a complete scam.
Here’s some more proof.
Red Flag #2: The name of the product keeps changing
When I originally clicked on the ad yesterday, the whole article was talking about a pill called Vigatron.
Yet, when I went back to the exact same page this morning, it show a completely different product called Alpha TRT.
Same exact copy, but completely different product.
I can almost 100% guarantee you that, if you go back to this page right now, they’ll be a completely different product being pushed.
But wait, there’s more!!
Try googling something like “Denzel Washington and dr. phil e.d pill“, and this is what you get.
The only legit article you’ll come across here is the first one from Fatherly.com.
They briefly mention the fact that Denzel Washington’s name has been used to push supplements like this before.
If you click on any of the other results of the search, again the name keeps changing.
For example, the 3rd result claims that Denzel developed a product called Testo Rev.
Further down the search results we see that the name of the miracle cure is actually Apexatropin, a scam we outed awhile back.
And on and on it goes.
Red Flag #3: Denzel Washington Hasn’t Ever Been On Dr. Phil
I just tried searching for an episode where Denzel Washington was on the Dr. Phil show, and unsurprisingly, couldn’t find anything.
First I tried searching the Dr. Phil website to find the exact episode.
Then I tried a quick google video search:
Again, no results showing he’d ever even been on the show, much less was pushing some type of “ed cure”.
“But what about that first result in the search, Rob?”
Ok, let’s click on it.
When you do, this is what you see.
When you click on it, this is what you get.
So clearly not what you were looking for.
This whole video is basically some guy who took soundbites of Dr. Phils voice and used them to ‘have a conversation’ with some male enhancement company.
It’s not even really that funny, but, that’s what it is.
So What’s The Purpose Of This Whole Thing?
You’re probably wondering why would someone bother doing all of this, right?
I mean, why lie and say that Denzel Washington created some crazy good ED pill.
Well, it all boils down to one thing and one thing only….money. (big surprise there, huh?)
Let me explain…
If you revert back to the article, you’ll see Denzel Washington is quoted as saying that they’re offering samples of their product to the public.
If you click on the link, it takes you to a page telling you that you need to pay just a small shipping fee of only $4.89.
$5 for a free bottle of supplements!?What could go wrong!?
Well, it turns out a lot more than you bargained for.
If you scroll down a bit, you’ll see the real truth behind this supposed “free sample”.
You’re reading it right…
They’re going to bill you the full price of the product 18 days after you order, in this case $97.49.
What’s even worse is that, if you don’t call to cancel, they will continually bill you every 30 days and send you another bottle of the pills.
This is what’s known as an “auto-rebill” program, and believe it or not, it’s perfectly legal.
Is it moral? Not a chance.
But do you think the guys that are getting rich off of you care about that?Fat chance…
These scams never cease to amaze me how many people get sucked into them.
I get SO many emails from people saying stuff like “I can’t believe Denzel Washington put his name behind this product!".
Or, “I saw this pill being advertised on CNN, they should be ashamed of themselves for promoting such a scam!".
The simple truth is, Denzel Washington didn’t create some cure for ED.
The entire scam is designed to get you to do one thing and one thing only…
Sign up for a free trial, which ultimately 90% of people signing up won’t realize that they’ll be billed some astronomical price 14 days later.
What can I do if I’ve been scammed by this already?
All hope is not lost. Your best option is to call to cancel your trial of whatever product you signed up for right away. If you’re persistent enough, you might even be able to get your money back.
