00:19something apparently having to do with
00:21ice and someone in these videos might be

01:07marketers or scammers or whatever they
01:08are that are pushing this product in a
01:10way that is kind of misleading hopefully
01:12my video can rise because I've done
01:13reporting about this before and four
01:16different times in fact from my
01:17full-time job where I write articles and
01:19those stories have been pushed down in
01:21Google search results because there are
01:22so many scammers out there so many
01:23different people uh you know affiliate
01:25marketers whatever they may be trying to
01:27fill Google search results with all

01:33click like down below that'd be great so
01:35this ice hack thing from what I can tell
01:37this alpalene for weight loss product or
01:39whatever it is has nothing to do with
01:41any sort of you know it's a diet product
01:43apparently a diet supplement has nothing
01:45to do with ice so I think this whole ice
01:47hack thing where they keep talking about
01:49how there's an ice hack five second ice
01:51hack 10 second 11 seconds 7 Seconds 60
01:53seconds a day whatever that has nothing
01:55to do with ice it's just a bottle of
01:57pills from what I can tell and the ice
01:58hack thing where they where they talk
02:00about an ice hack it's just designed to
02:01be the hook to get you to check out
02:03what's happening so it's kind of Click
02:05bait is what it is in a way and I have
02:08seen different ads on YouTube for this
02:10product that claim that you know like
02:12there's one with this guy and you can
02:14see his hands I don't know if the guy
02:15talking is the guy with the hands or
02:17it's uh he hired a voiceover guy to dub
02:20over it or whatever I don't know if it's
02:21an affiliate marketer or scammer either
02:22but it shows a guy walking over with a
02:25bowl of ice or a cup of ice and he
02:26points at his laptop screen and there's
02:28an article there that looks like USA
02:30Today but it's not it's something called
02:31USA Health today and has no affiliation
02:33with USA Today they they copied the USA
02:36Today they're the round blue logo the
02:38exact same shade of blue and they made
02:40it look like it's USA Today to I guess
02:42fool people into thinking that that he's
02:44pointing at a USA Today article but he's
02:46not and in this article which I wouldn't
02:48trust at all it seems to be you know
02:50completely made up he points at a before
02:52and after photo of a woman who
02:54apparently lost weight and he says that
02:56that's his mom and that she lost weight
02:58with this alpalene product and you know
03:00appleene reviews appleene ice hack for
03:03weight loss I'm going to keep sprinkling
03:04in these keywords to try to compete with
03:05the scammers he claims it it shows his
03:07mom before and after photos like she's
03:09got more pounds on her here and then
03:11over here she lost all the weight thanks
03:12to alpalene here's the problem with that
03:14I did a reverse image search in my
03:16reporting and I found that that photo
03:17was like five years old at least five
03:19years old before this alpalene product
03:21ever even existed online and so it's
03:23completely false it's misleading and it
03:26is really scammy and that's probably not
03:27his mom obviously either and what that
03:30woman did in the photo she didn't lose
03:31weight with some sort of diet
03:32supplements or pills her photos appeared
03:34on a page about I think diet and
03:36exercise big surprise someone lost
03:38weight with diet and exercise they
03:40didn't just take some pills and hope for
03:41the best they did it the the way that we
03:43know Works diet and exercise and I I saw
03:46that and I've seen that over and over
03:48there's also the stuff about a Stanford
03:50researcher and they can create these
03:51fake names of these these doctors who
03:54supposedly supposedly endorse the
03:55products I think one of the doctors I
03:57tried to look for it here the uh I don't
03:59know about the doctor's name but I saw
04:00someone's name was apparently Deborah
04:02Barrett a 44 year old mom of two from
04:04Texas who suddenly melted 34 pounds of
04:07thick wobbly fat from her butt hips
04:09belly and face stories like that where
04:11people lost all this weight and it said
04:12that this one's an unusual fat
04:14dissolving hack all these different
04:16terms for this product and if it seems
04:19too good to be true it probably is there
04:20are a lot of supposed weight loss diet
04:24pills out there and I know everyone
04:26wants the easy way but unfortunately one
04:29thing that I think we all know deep down
04:31even though some of us might not want to
04:32admit it some of us might want to be
04:33like hey I saw an article the other day
04:35it said actually you can lose weight
04:36with a pill but this that whatever diet
04:38and exercise is the way to go and you
04:40know there might be advancements in the
04:41future if you know diet pills that might
04:43actually do something but this thing
04:45right here in this ice hack I don't see
04:46this as being competitive at all to diet
04:48and exercise and some people might say
04:50well did you take the pill did you say
04:51I'm here to talk about the scams
04:53surrounding the product I'm not here to
04:54review the product what I'm I'm here to
04:56do to tell you everything that I've seen
04:58over the last few months I didn't just
04:59start looking at this today a few
05:01minutes ago a few hours ago I've been
05:02looking at this alpalene product since
05:04late 2022 and seeing all the different
05:06affiliate marketers who are out there
05:08and all the different scams surrounding
05:10this or whatever these affiliate
05:11marketers if you don't know what an
05:12affiliate marketer is they try to get
05:14some commission based upon sales that
05:16they were able to create so what you
05:18know people will do is they'll create a
05:20video on YouTube and say hey I took this
05:22apple lean product and you know here's
05:24my review the problem with that is is
05:26this that same person you can find a
05:28hundred other videos from just the last
05:30month of them also saying they took a
05:31hundred other products and there's no
05:33way they're taking all those supplements
05:35more than 100 supplements every single
05:38day you know you know what would that be
05:39that'd be 3 000 pills a month or
05:41something like that for a 30-day month
05:43and you know some of these affiliate
05:44marketers just aren't to be trusted
05:45because you can't be taking 100 or 200
05:47different pills a day what they're doing
05:49is they they know they can get some sort
05:51of commission based upon the sales of
05:53this product if they are able to create
05:55those and so they say hey I I took this
05:58product follow the link Link in the
06:00description below and you too can and
06:02again they can't be taking 100 or 200
06:04different pills a day every day you know
06:07for the course of a few months in a row
06:08they're just trying to make sales I
06:10don't believe they're taking the pills
06:11some of you might say well it's possible
06:13I don't I don't I don't believe in that
06:14sorry and so I'm making this video again
06:16because I've done reporting about this
06:18in the past and I'm trying to make
06:20additional videos in order to compete
06:22with some of the scammers that are out
06:23there some of the affiliate marketers
06:24who are claiming to take the product but
06:26they're also claiming to take 200 other
06:27pills every day and I want to try to
06:30help people because some people get
06:31sucked into these sort of things whether
06:32it's this or keto gummies or CBD gummies
06:34or whatever it may be they lose a lot of
06:37money and they don't have any recourse
06:38because they made maybe waited too long
06:40to tell the credit card company that
06:41they wanted to challenge the charge or
06:43whatever it may be I hope that my video

06:56affiliate marketer link down below
06:57telling people you just gotta take this
06:59pill and you're going to lose all this

07:05pushing this and ads on YouTube some of
07:07them had thousands or maybe even
07:08millions of views and YouTube said they
07:11removed the videos for a policy and they
07:13cited spam deceptive practices and scams
07:16and if that doesn't tell you all you
