SCAM ALERT: Halki Diabetes Cure is Baloney

A Diabetes remedy?  For $37?  If this doesn’t sound familiar, check out the many other alleged diabetes cures, including Diabetes Destroyer,  Kachine Diabetes Solution, Vedda Blood Sugar Remedy and Diabetes Free.  Like the questionable Halki Diabetes Remedy, these scams all use questionable cures and over-the-top promises to reduce your bank account rather than your insulin levels.  And what they all share in common is that they are info scams.  The schemers know that about 50% of American adults are either diabetic or prediabetic. So there’s a big market out there of people looking for low-cost solutions to their medical ills.  And these scammers are poised to milk the bank accounts of those unsuspecting people.

So what is the alleged remedy?  Halki won’t tell you.    You’ll have to pay $37 to discover the “simple 60-second habit known only to the inhabitants of a small, barely populated Aegean island.”

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 Miracle Cure marketers want to charge your credit card. We dug a bit into this particular Diabetes scheme.

The emails hawking the Halki cure send you to an even slicker web site asking for the “low price” of $37 for a 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 Eric Whitfield because he doesn’t exist.  So, should you spend the $37?  We recommend not, for the following six 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 Halki Remedy oesn’t exist.   His name is alleged to be Eric Whitfield.  He’s described as a “’s just a regular guy like you and I, but he almost lost his wife to Type 2 Diabetes. This is when he sought out to do his own research and to find the real cause of diabetes and what to do about it”.   They’ve even created a fake university-sponsored website to make it look as though there’s some science behind this scam.  But the page is a fake, just like the Halki remedy.    Contrahealthscam.com and other web sites have figured out that Whitfield’s picture is simply a stock photo you can buy at Shutterstock.com, Deposit Photos, 123RF.com etc.!

4.  The real author of this scheme is  one of the Agora scamsters who have littered the Internet with these kinds of health scams such as scams Pure Natural Healing, Hard on Demand and NutriO2 .   Check out the Clickbank affiliate ad below for the real behind-the-scene details about this particular scam:

 

 

That’s right.  This offering promises its “affiliates” $29.58 from the $37 that you send to Halki.   They brag that they average “up to $292 per sale”.  They are counting on upsales to pad their profit margin and pay-off the affiliate marketers.

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.

6. Perhaps most importantly, there is an abundance of free or low-cost diabetes prevention information on the Internet.

FREE INFORMATION ABOUT DIABETES REMEDIES

You don’t have to pay $37 for a bogus cure while so much credible and low-cost information is available online. For example, 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.  Need more information? Check out these more reliable sources (both are free):

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.  And a recent British study suggests that modifying diet is a surefire way of controlling or eliminating Type-2 diabetes.

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.

Our last word on Halki 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.

    Plus, you can go to Amazon.com and look up the book Halki Diabetes Remedy and click on the Free Look link over the book and it will actually take you to the pages where the recipes are all spelled out. For Free!! Plus, the actual book is only $17.99. So…even if this is a scam offer, you can print or write out the recipes and try them out on your own for free.

        We didn’t need to. We see these infoscams so often that they are easy for us to spot. Why give the scammers money when we know what they are?

      I just went to Amazon and tried what you suggested. It DOES NOT show the recipe portion of the book. It shows front cover or table of contents or first pages or back cover, etc.

        In Amazon I clicked on “look inside.” I was able to go through the first 5 pages.
        At the bottom of page 5 you are asked to sign in to Amazon to look at further pages.

    I will never fall for these scams. I actually listened to a podcast called Mastering Blood sugar yesterday and the guest speaker was Dr. Ron Rosendale who spoke of what we need to eat starting immediately. Dr. Rosendale was the founder of the Colorado Center for Metabolic Medicine in Colorado and Asheville, NC. His diet is called the Rosendale Diet which is found online, the podcast is free. His book is about $7 and he is an expert. I highly recommend anyone reading this, listening to the podcast, and then following his rules for eating. I am changing my diet after listening to him and following his recommendations.

    Hello,
    I agree, this product and its sales pitch story and all affiliated, very questionable, reviews sites claiming it is all legit, are all heinous scams.
    However, you may need to re-work the bit about the ‘Stock Photo’ of Eric Whitfield, because while I believe the person proposing to be Eric Whitfield is nothing but a paid actor, photos of him are not stock footage, simply because there is an entire (bogus) documentary video of him as the host, presenting everything that is in the written document, and I am pretty certain none of it is stock footage.

    Your site does very important work and is vital for people looking for the truth behind these types of inconsiderate scams, so apart from maybe doing another quick proof edit check to pick up the few typos, it is paramount for you as the exposer of scams, fraudulent and illegitimate schemes and operations, that your reports are word perfect and absolutely fully accurate in the face of extensive research.

    For me, despite the few errors, I think your scam alert report should be highly commended. Exposing these types of low life malevolent individuals and groups is vital in the fight to prevent innocent people from being scammed out of their hard earned money on false hope and promises, especially people who are already suffering enough with the ailments and disabilities they already have and seeking genuine help.

    Cheers.

    What if anyone would just put these “solutions/remedies” online for FREE? Everyone would have free access and can try them out. It doesn’t state anwhere that the remedies are pattented and since all ingredients are legal and can be found in any supermarket they can’t be….

    NotesFromTheDog, I just did as kk from KC advised about going on to amazon for the recipes. They will so partial recipes if you make sure that you’re logged into your prime account. However they do show the full recipes for the last couple of days.

    thank you SOOOO much for ALL your help and advise. I am very elderly and very ill with several serious conditions. and my caregiver and her family have diabetes and overweight problems. this is why this add caught my eye. I know there are scammers out there but I don’t know how to check all those things that were suggested. but I always go to HIGHYA and find what I need. I don’t do a lot on the computer. Just a few things. but I don’t have a lot of money and it is such a blessing to have folks like you to help folks like me. thank you all soo much.

      Simple answer: copyright law. We wouldn’t allow someone to post the “regimen” on our site. It would invite a needless lawsuit because we already know that there’s no scientific support for this quackery.

      You probably ordered it using Clickbank. You should have an email from Clickbank confirming the transaction. You can use that link to cancel the purchase, pursuant to their 60-day guarantee. However, be aware that Clickbank may not make it easy for you to do this.
