scamLike other alleged cures, Diabetes Destroyer, the marketers of these “programs” use questionable cures and over-the-top promises to reduce your bank account rather than your insulin levels.  In the case of Diabetes Destroyer, they use the “big lie” marketing strategy; namely that the medical establishment is covering-up information that would help you cure your diabetes.   It’s bunk.

Unfortunately, many of these sites are making things up.  The big red flashing light that should be triggered by these Internet schemes is that nowhere in the promotional materials do they let on to the specifics of their “miracle cures”.  For example, the “scientifically proven 3-step method ” is touted to be created by a David Andrews but they give you no information about his credentials — largely because he doesn’t exist. Instead, of information, they offer fear, largely that “Big Pharma” is stonewalling this information, thus playing into consumers’ fear of conspiracies (not that pharmaceutical companies are angels…) Finally, if you try to find any kind of review of this miracle cure you are bludgeoned by fake review sites that are not independent or objective; they are just more marketers trying to take your money.   You won’t find any specifics because either they are simply repackaging information available on the Internet for free or they are peddling unscientifically supported “theories” as real “cures”.

What Diabetes Destroyer is really all about is upselling.  Once they get your $37, they’ll attempt to sell you even more useless or overpriced services.   Here’s what they tout in their pitch to affiliate marketers who direct business to them:

They are bragging that they can get even more money out of you and they are willing to pay 75% of that first $37 you give them to those affiliates who steer you to them.  We see this kind of scam all of the time; it is an almost textbook scheme by which Internet marketers overcharge consumers for dubious information, much of which is readily available on the Net for free.  The typical price charged by these other scammers is $37….identical to what the Diabetes Destroyer marketers want to charge your credit card. We dug a bit into this particular Diabetes scheme and here’s what we found out.

The emails send you to an even slicker web siteasking for the “low price” of $37 for a “3 modules (a.k.a pamphlets) guaranteed to cure diabetes”.  Is it a scam?  Is it a rip-off? Does it work?  You’ll never find out from the websites, largely because of an increasingly pernicious Internet industry that offers fake product review sites; You’ll also never be able to find out about the credentials of Mr. Andrews; we spent quite awhile trying to find a board-certified medical specialist on diabetes who admitted to authoring this book and came up empty; If a website fails to feature the credentials of the author and/or if a Google search turns up nothing about this person, you can bet this is a marketer driven product. So, should you spend the $37?  We recommend not, for the following specific reasons:

1.  There’s a reason these sales pitches are slick — they spend a lot of marketing money to get it to you.  Who is paying for that? You are!

2. If you look for a review of the product, you are deluged with lots of fake review or scam sites that simply direct you to the main sales site or offer some pablum talking about how the product is highly rated or recommended.  (such as scamX.comand infoscamreviews.com)  The marketers for this service paid to have these fake sites thwart any customer looking for real reviews.

3. The author of this alleged diet is unknown.  There is no David Andrews who has any credentials regarding diabetes treatments.

4. Perhaps most importantly, there is an abundance of free or low-cost diabetes prevention information on the Internet.  Amazon offers a number of ebooks that cost nothing and provide well-established, scientifically-validated diabetes treatment plans. The titles include: Diabetes, the Ultimate Guide, The Sugar Solution and Mayo Clinic Essential Diabetes Book — all of this information is free or less than a few bucks; Even easier, you can just click this link and find excellent information about diabetes prevention.

5.  To buy the Diabetes “modules”, you are required to use Clickbank.   This Internet payment gateway has generated a number of complaints about difficulties in securing refunds and getting responses. It is unregulated and known to serve unscrupulous businesses.  It is akin to going into the wrong bar in a bad neighborhood;  they may serve the same booze but you’d not want to hang with the other patrons.

And please consider the recently reported case of a Type-2 diabetes sufferer.   She was 3 years old and morbidly obese.  After 6 months of lifestyle changes monitored by doctors, she was “cured”.   For many people, lifestyle changes really do make a difference.   The doctors replaced her soda and fast food diet with balanced home cooked meals and water.

Based upon our findings, we strongly recommend against anyone forking over their hard-earned money for an overpriced, medically-questionable Internet offer. You can create your own “diabetes miracle cure” for free through weight loss, aerobic exercise along with some resistance training (weights and bands),eating low glycemic foods reducing stress in your life.This is the prescription outlined by hundreds of books online.

If you choose to hand-over your $37 to these unscrupulous marketing machines, then be prepared for what follows because once they find someone willing to part with their hard-earned money, you can be sure that they’ll be back with more dubious offers.  You’ll now be marked as a “cow” and they’ll try to milk you every way they can with additional offers and costly upgrades. You may want to think twice before you open this nefarious box.
