Flat Belly Overnight
A scam based on a weight loss myth.
Author is unverifiable (does NOT exist)
Fake testimonials with stolen photos
The scientific basis is a proven myth
Flat Belly Overnight by ‘Andrew’ is nothing but a desperate scam by a desperate, talkative scammer! This is one of the most desperate scams I’ve ever encountered online … and after reading this review you will realize why I said this.
The awfully annoying presentation video tells us the story of one ‘Amy’ who, due to her weight issues, heart problems, type 2 diabetes and stroke, was about to commit suicide. But that suicide attempt was thwarted by a phone call from her brother ‘Andrew’ … and that ultimately led to the discovery of a weight loss ‘breakthrough.’
This ‘biggest breakthrough in the weight loss industry’ allegedly enabled Amy, a 47-year old mom of two, to ‘miraculously’ lose 2 pounds of belly fat ‘overnight.’ Not only that, she went on to allegedly lose 11 pounds in ‘over a week’ and then, ‘in less than 6 weeks,’ she lost 52 pounds and became ‘symptom free of type 2 diabetes.’ All these she accomplished not by going to the gym or by using crash diets, supplements or online fitness programs. All she had to do was apply this ‘overnight trick’ before going to bed and the next morning her stomach is ‘flat’ and her waist is ‘slim.’
Lets pause for a while and verify some of the claims, the first one being, is this ‘Amy’ real? Well here is the answer:
‘Amy’ Does NOT Exist!
‘Andrew’ provided the photo of his sister ‘Amy’ but unfortunately, that CANNOT be Amy. Why? Because that same photo has been used by countless online health scams as a Before-After testimonial!
Don’t believe me? Sort through these Google Search results pages and believe me when I say that you will develop a headache after clicking on all the scam websites bearing the photo.
Now that it is clear that Amy is just a stolen photo that has been used in countless weight loss scams, rest assured that all the other before-after photo testimonials featured in the video presentation are stolen. Those innocent people did NOT achieve their weight loss results by using ‘Andrew’s Fat Belly Overnight.
Now to the next question.
Who is ‘Andrew’?
According to Supplement Police, the Flat Belly Overnight eBook has the name ‘Andrew Raposo’ as its author. Armed with this information, I located Raposo’s personal website, where he describes himself as a ‘Personal Trainer and a Strength Coach’ based near Toronto, Canada. The only service he offers, according to his website, is the all-too-familiar ‘online coaching.’
Looking at Raposo’s website however, you’ll quickly notice that it has not been updated in a long while. In fact, the last blog post was in October 2014 as at the time of writing this review. Again, there is no mention of Flat Belly Overnight anywhere on the site.
This means there are two possibilities:
- Andrew Raposo’s identity has been hijacked by a scammer
- Andrew Raposo is using another website to sell a scam
I have contacted Raposo through his website to confirm whether he authored Flat Belly Overnight but so far, no word back.
Now that we all know that ‘Amy’ does not exist and ‘Andrew’ probably does not either, it is pretty clear that there is no point moving forward with this review. However, lets briefly look at the reasons why I call Flat Belly Overnight a scam:
1. There is NO Such Thing As ‘Targeted’ or ‘Spot Weight Loss’
Flat Belly Overnight, as the name suggests, is a weight loss product whose goal is to help you get rid of the fat lodging in your abdomen ‘overnight.’ In other words, using Flat Belly Overnight will not help you burn the excess fat in your hands, legs or anywhere else in your body.
Now the problem is that there is no such thing as losing fat in a specific area of the body. This is because fat cells in the body are the same and have the same properties. For instance, the fat in your belly and the fat in your thighs are the same. This means that whatever you do to lose weight will affect your whole body, not just one specific area like the abdomen.
Spot reduction or targeted weight loss is a well-known fallacy that has been duly documented by almost every credible resource site, including Wikipedia. Studies after studies have proven that it is not possible to lose weight in one specific area of the body by exercisingthe muscles in that area.
2. Lies About Pricing. Scammer Desperate For Your Money!
Despite ‘Andrew’s insistence that ‘it is not about the money for me,’ the opposite is actually the case. He is desperately after your money!
In the beginning of this review, I noted that the creator of Flat Belly Overnight is a desperate scammer. I arrived at this conclusion because of the way he spoke about arriving at the $37 price of his product.
In the video, ‘Andrew’ claims that his product is actually worth $269. According to him, he spends ‘over $99 a day’ on ‘web development costs’ and that his distribution cost – the money he pays to deliver three eBooks to your email inbox – is ‘$49.95.’ But because he is a Good Samaritan who really wants you to lose weight, he decided to give you his three eBooks for just $37.
Well ‘Andrew’ is flat-out lying here. I, as the owner of ContraHealthScam.com, definitely do NOT pay ‘over $99 a day’ on ‘web development.’ In fact, I pay nothing to run this website on a daily basis. The only time I spent that much on this blog was when I was setting it up (finding a web host, buying the design) … and it was a one-time payment, NOT daily!
Looking at his website, there is no doubt in my mind that ‘Andrew’ is using shared hosting because he clearly stated that he spends $197 on web hosting. This means that he spending $197 a year to keep his website online. In other words, ‘Andrew’ is actually spending about 50 cents a day on ‘web development.’
And as for the claim that he spends $49.95 as ‘distribution’ cost, ask yourself this question: How much does it cost you to send someone an email with attached files?
Towards the end of the video, ‘Andrew’ becomes even more desperate. He shouts that you should hurry up and buy his scam and uses everything in his scam arsenal to try convincing you. At a point, he pretends to end the presentation, only for him to pop up seconds later and ask, ‘Still here?’
Final Recommendation: DON’T BUY Flat Belly Overnight. It is A SCAM!
