Pity the poor person who has stumbled upon this bogus AlphaTest X erectile dysfunction ad. It falsely touts support by actor Tom Selleck and Dr. Phil as an alternative to Viagra. It then falsely claims that its “proprietary” formula of herbs outperforms other ED drugs. It asks for a bunch of your personal information in order to get a “free 30-day supply”.
This Internet scam is almost a carbon copy of numerous other bogus ED offerings on the Net. They come and go, but all of them rip off your money and personal information and offer only a bottle of useless, or dangerous, herbs.
Our advice: DON’T FALL FOR IT.
What is Alpha Test X?
It’s a scam. Here’s why we say this. First, it claims to include “powerful ingredients” such as Horny Goat Weed, Saw Palmetto and Ginko Biloba. These so-called ingredients are dubious medicinal herbs BUT they aren’t in this worthless drug. The Alpha Test X actual ingredients are located on a different page:
This blend is an almost carbon copy of a bunch of other bogus ED herbal remedies that pop-up and then disappear every few years. The major ingredients are:
- Arginine – an amino acid which promotes the production of nitric acid. According to WebMD, studies show that it might ease the symptoms of angina and peripheral arterial disease. It might also help with ED, but mostly when combined with other supplements such as pine bark extract is said to cause blood to flow into your penis, leading to an erection, but only at dangerously high doses. Notably, there’s no pine bark extract in AlphaTest
- Maca – A ‘rare folk medicine’ that allegedly boosts semen volume and enhances libido. Yet, Current Sexual Health Reports concluded “there is no strong medical evidence to support its use for sexual dysfunction.
- Ginseng – A large group of herbs that allegedly assist the body in processing oxygen,but also come with dangerous health effects. Notably, they don’t specify which of the ginseng herbs are included in this blend.
Check out the following other scam ED remedies that have showed up on the web. They are almost identical in their formulation and their ineffectiveness:
The Free Trial Is Not Free
Peruse the terms and conditions hidden away on the website and you’ll find that you are locking yourself into a deal from which it will be exceedingly difficult to escape. Check out this language before you agree to sign up:
That’s right. Once you give them your credit card, you are locked into a 30-day deal — and they never mention the price. Expect to pay $90 or more, every 30 days. According to the terms they are imposing, you’ve got to cancel within 17 days in order to get out of the scam. And, if you do try to cancel…..good luck. They won’t tell you how to do it.
Even The Warning About Limited Supplies Is Bogus
Make sure you ignore that ‘WARNING’ on the top of the page on your way out. It reads: “WARNING: Due to extremely high media demand, there is limited supply of AlphaTestX in stock as of _______”
This is just an HTML-coded script designed to give you the impression that their product will soon sell out if you don’t buy it on the day you visited the site. That’s absolute nonsense. Come back to the site another day, and the message will still be there along with the date of that day. That’s a very cheap pressure tactic often employed by scammers to make their victims to hurry up and fall for their scam product.
Please save your hard-earned dollars and your personal information by avoiding this and other similar ED webscams. They lie about their endorsements, their effectiveness and the terms by which you get your “free trial”.
