I recently got a call from someone I know very well pushing a new “health drink” called Exfuze. This is someone I know well enough that I can say with 100% certainty that he wouldn’t knowingly try to sell me on a scam. But I can also say with pretty near certainty that this Exfuze stuff is a complete scam, and he’s just been fooled. It’s just a multi-level marketing scheme (i.e. should be called a pyramid scheme but technically is not) tied to a snake oil product. Try to google up the nutrition information, and you don’t find it, but you do find a million and one sites that stink of MLM*.
But what I haven’t found is a serious discussion of the alleged nutritional benefits (presumably debunking them). Anyone got a pointer to one?
*amusingly, they’ve even managed to throw barriers in the way of people who suspect it’s a scam and are googling for “exfuze scam,” since all of the results are sites trying to sell you the crap and also claiming “this is not a scam.” Mark of a solid product if I ever saw one.
