Don’t bother trying the Red Smoothie Detox Factor by the supposed ‘Liz Swann Miller’ to combat your weight problem because it is a scam! Make sure you read this review to the end, as it is one of the very few honest, unbiased reviews you will ever find online about this product.
One disturbing thing about this scam (link to website) is that it seems to target obese women and girls, and I draw this conclusion from the narrative in the presentation video (honestly, I did not bother to watch the whole video because it is 56 minutes long and full of annoying crap from the very beginning). But don’t be deceived by the lovely voice of the female actor hired to read the scam script, as the person behind this worthless product is a ghost and so can either be a man, a woman or an animal!
The summary of what the scammer wants to sell to you is information about 4 ‘strange’ ingredients he/she found in ‘a foreign country’ and added to his/her home-made smoothie, which can make you lose around 15 pounds in ‘a short period’ of two weeks. Its website has been around (and has been scamming people) since September 28, 2015 (Who.is Data).
Now lets dive into the reasons why I call the Red Smoothie Detox Factor a scam.
1. Liz Swann Miller Does NOT Exist!
Okay. I know some of you will be shocked by this finding because earlier you saw a detailed Amazon.com profile of Liz Swann Miller, in which she is described as a previously obese mother of two daughters with degrees and ‘over 10 years of experience’ in ‘naturopath’ (the science of using natural herbs and the like to cure diseases) and psychology. According to the profile info (and the video presentation), Miller has helped ‘thousands’ of clients with her methods, and her goal is ‘to educate as many people as possible about the healing powers of food and how to easily incorporate these changes into daily life.’ A really noble goal, I must add.
However, a fact is a fact. Liz Swann Miller does NOT exist and the reason I’m saying this is simple: She is just a Shutterstock.com image!
Here is the link to the Shutterstock image. You can even buy it if you want.
Now for some of you who might insist that the Shutterstock photo is indeed Liz Swann Miller because she is supposedly a famous, ‘best-selling’ Amazon author and maybe Shutterstock bought the rights to sell her photos, ask yourself this question: How come Shutterstock didn’t name her in the photo description but instead wrote, ‘Portrait of beautiful blond woman’? And oh … this photo is not only found on RedSmoothieDetoxFactor.com. A quick Google Image search brings up the same photo in a variety of scam websites … with different female names attached to it.
Now please note that every photo of a person on Shutterstock is shot using picture models, which essentially means that the woman you see above is a picture model and definitely NOT Liz Swann Miller.
2. That Indian Doctor. Again. (Identity Theft Confirmed)
Regular readers of Contra Health Scam know that on two occasions I asked a lot of questions about Dr Suneil Kumar, an Indian general practitioner based in Boston, Massachusetts, whose name has been used to ‘certify’ scams like ‘The 3-Week Diet’ and ‘the ED Miracle.‘ This certification service is provided by Doctor-Certified.com, a ‘consumer protection agency’ created to help medical professionals get better sales for their products, which have been thoroughly scrutinized by the agency’s ‘board of doctors.’
Now this is the third time I’m seeing Dr Kumar’s name being used to endorse a scam which, by the way, is supposedly owned by a woman! So what does that tell you? Two things:
- Dr Kumar’s identity has been hijacked
- Doctor-Certified.com is a scam
I want to emphasize this. Any website with a ‘Doctor-Certified’ logo floating on it is A SCAM. Avoid such sites like a plague!
I will write a comprehensive review of Doctor-Certified.com later.
So with these two findings above, I don’t see the reason why I should go ahead to review the contents of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor eBook. I mean, what is the point reviewing a book written by a ghost?
At Contra Health Scam, the identity of a health product owner is extremely important because just as you cannot allow yourself to be treated by a faceless doctor, I cannot encourage you to let some book written by a non-existent, never-existed fellow tell you what to eat or drink to cure a condition as complex as obesity, or any disease for that matter. So if a health product does not pass this incredibly simple criterion, then that’s it. Not recommended by me.
Final Recommendation: DON’T BUY Red Smoothie Detox Factor. It is A Scam!
One more thing: When you attempt to leave the website, a pop-up blocks you from leaving. Then you are issued a ‘WARNING!’ to buy the Red Smoothie Detox Factor along with three of Liz’ other eBooks for a measly $19. Then you are told that ‘You WILL NOT see this discount again’ if you close the page. That’s a lie and a pathetic pressure tactic often used by scammers to make you buy what they are selling.
Don’t fall for the cheap, $19 price being offered … it is just a clever marketing tactic designed to lure you in. If you buy this product, they will bombard you with upsells and they will tell you that the upsells are designed to ‘speed up’ your success with the main product. This means you end up spending even more money that can run up to hundreds or thousands of dollars.

13 June 2016:
The scammers behind Red Smoothie Detox Factor have released an update of their product … and it is hosted on another website with the domain RedSmoothieDetoxFactor-2016.com. This website, created in April 30 2016, is extremely beautiful and well-designed, and there are no pop-ups preventing you from leaving the site and no talk about ‘Big Pharma’ conspiracy.
HOWEVER, Red Smoothie Detox Factor is STILL A SCAM! This is because that beautiful photo passed off as that of the creator Liz Swann Miller is a stock photo bought from CanStockPhoto.com!
This same photo can also be bought at Shutterstock.com and if you look closely, you’ll discover that the scammer is using photos shot using the same picture model!
In other words, the scammer is impersonating this innocent picture model by slamming her face all over their product.
One more thing: Did you see that countdown timer below the big, yellow ‘Order Now’ button? That is a very common pressure tactic used by scammers to make you hurry up and buy their garbage! Yesterday it was telling me that I had around 1 hour 45 minutes to buy the product at $19 but today (16 June), it is now saying that I have 2 hours 3 minutes to make up my mind! This is a clear fraud people. Don’t waste your money on it!
Thanks to ‘Liz’ who alerted me of this new website by trying to advertise the scam on the comments section. Hope it worked out well for you!
