The Doctors or Everyday Health & Wellness or Women's Health

You may also see this as a redirection to "" but that is a clever trick to make you think they are legitimate.

This scam has been exposed at many different locations on the Internet.

It has appeared as a Caralluma weight-loss scam, a Forskolin Fuel weight-loss scam, as a Safflower Oil weight-loss scam, and Garcinia fraud, varying by date and even by geography. The same claims were made, using identical before-and-after pictures for different scams.

Relentlessly spammed in the April - November 2015 time-frame, "The Doctors" tries to avoid blacklisting by anti-spam tools and reputation services (such as MyWot and McAfee SiteAdvisor).

Basic summaryEdit

"The Doctors" (EveryDay Health & Wellness) is a highly spammed operation promoting what claims to be a weight-loss product.

It sells one product: either Caralluma or CLA Safflower oil or Forskolin Fuel or Garcinia. The Wikipedia entry does not agree with the claims on Safflower oil - Wkipedia on Safflower

Fake: Use of referencesEdit

False Dr Oz claimEdit

The checkout for Safflower Doctors website

The claim "As Advertised On:" implies that the product was reported on by the television shows/stations or websites for which the logos are presented. This is an attempt to lend credibility to the product where none actually exists. The reference to Oprah Winfrey implies her endorsement, but that is a false claim.

Previously the same web sites had an identical format, with the exact same before and after photos and testimonials, but for another weight-loss scam - Caralluma. When this was revealed as a scam, they switched to Safflower Oil, but did not bother to change the images.

Refer to the web site to see if it is really recommended for weight loss. states So, should you go out and start taking safflower oil products for weight loss? The answer, for now, is no. And why not? Because the approach is based primarily on the results of a single small study, a study whose weaknesses are significant.

The claim of "personally recommended by Dr. Mike Moreno ... author of the 17 Day Diet" is nonsense. Furthermore, there is no reference to Safflower Oil in his 17 Day Diet.

Identical claims for different productsEdit

Caralluma Every Day

Caralluma site, same claims

Caralluma Forskolin

Forskolin site, same claims

Misuse of stolen imageEdit

The before and after image of Kimberly Truesdell, who lost weight using only a change in diet to reduce calories, has been misused and attributed to Kristy, Miami FL.

Technical analysisEdit

Generally, the name servers that resolve access to the web site names are registered on the Russian country level. We have detected 300 such name servers, for example

The name servers reside on IP addresses located in various European countries.

A name server typically resolves addresses for between 5 and 15 names, which are usually in the format where XXX comprises a random selection of alphanumeric characters. Later the convention changed to the format or where again the name comprises a random selection of 5 or 6 alphanumeric characters.
