FALSE ADVERTISING | FB & IG MAKEUP SCAMS TO LOOK OUT FOR
- Published on Mar 12, 2019
- Hey guy, so today's video is one thats a bit different than I have done. I was scrolling through the explore page of IG the other day and saw a few ads on teeth whiteners that really upset me, blatant false and deceptive advertising. Then I was over on Facebook and saw the same thing, scams showing people using Dermacol foundation but touting it as their brand of foundation. I wanted to show you guys because I saw the comments below the posts and all of them were inquiring about the products and how they could purchase them based on the videos that they were watching in the ads, which were not even the product being sold.
This video is more or less to shed some light on the fact that there are people out there who spend their hard earned and saved money on products that aren't even what they are being marketed as. I know this is NOT a new thing, false advertising has been around since ads have, but I saw HUNDREDS of commenters below the posts of people wanting to buy the products and I realized that people outside of the beauty community and beauty space on USclip may not know that these are not the real product being used, and I see people giving their money to companies who ARE LYING to get your money. Their products may work, but they are illegally using videos from people testing other products and calling it their own.
The teeth whitener is completely photoshopped and people PURCHASE the fakery. This video likely won't stop it from happening, because outside of the USclip community, it is easy for companies to swindle their viewers with deceptive ads, but I just wanted to let people know to keep their wits about them, realize that things aren't always what they seem and that just because its on your favorite app, doesn't mean you should take what they say at face value.
