I can only say that google ads are evil for some of the food ads they put on a diet site!

Hi Anne, Thank you very much for responding and explaining! I am so glad to hear that Spark does not allow ads for weight loss pills. Bravo for Spark!!!!
I did not have the time to copy the URL at the time that the ad was on and it only appeared once as far as I know. If it appears again then I will notify. However, I might spend very little time on the Spark website in the future because I am very busy and I achieved my goal dress size
I hope that others will be vigilant about this ad. Here are tips for recognizing the ad; The ad mentions that Demi Moore uses this cream but says that she is keeping it a secret. The makers of this scam think that this will explain why Demi is not endorsing it. The ad also says that Dr Oz is endorsing it without any evidence. The ad promises two different creams. One of these creams is called Equinox. The ad mentions that there are only a few samples left and that puts pressure on customers to hurry up and buy without investigating. When I first saw the ad, it was written that there were only three samples left. A few minutes later, it was written that there were six samples left.
And Google also seems to think that if you are on a weight loss site. You must be looking to shed pounds quickly.

I didn't know that Spark bought their ads in a bundle from Google, so THAT explains the ones with sky high promises to get "skinny", not just "fit", but skinny, as if skinny looks good, lol. I saw one once that showed some kind of enama to use to lose weight fast, now, wait a minute! I know there is a need to pay the bills, even Dr. Oz web site shows sponsorship of toxic cleaning out of your intestines, even though it's bunk, but they too told me they had to pay to keep the web site going..............such is life. Guess I'm too old, I've seen these scam ads for so many years, I wouldn't give them a 2nd glance.

I use Ad Block so don't see any ads, but it sounds like this one should definitely be looked into or removed
Take a screen shot of the ad and send it to the moderators.
Spark People buys ads from Google by the bunch and sometimes a fraudulent ad slips in. Like the ones that promise a super fruit that Beyoncé uses can help you burn all your belly fat in ten minutes.
My favorites are Rachel Ray uses Product x and she got super skinny. If you look at the picture it is not even Rachel Ray. And if you watch her show she is just as fluffy as ever.

Yesterday, there was an ad on Spark about a miracle skin product that made you look younger. The product offered free samples if you paid for shipping. You had to give credit card info to pay for the shipping. The add promised a product called Equinox.
