The stolen before and after photo saga continues. This time fellow blogger Renee found her before and after photos next to a testimonial on a colon cleanse site.
Yup, that’s Renee and when you click on her photo you get zoomed in.
The testimonial they claim she gave calls her Rene L.
Her photos are still being used as of today along side others I can only assume are stolen as well.
This is Renee’s real story…
Hey Roni! My before and after is on the Cleansing Waters Colonic website with an actual testimonial! It took me 8 months to lose 52 pounds and I did it by using Jenny Craig the first three months coupled with exercise. After that I started food journaling and continued to exercise to lose the additional 25 or so pounds. I’ve NEVER had a colonic and am appalled that my hard work is being diminished by being exploited by this site. I lost the weight in 2011 and continue to work hard and live a healthy life to maintain my weight loss. It isn’t always easy but I keep active and have run 15 half marathons, a full marathon and am running a 200-mile Ragnar relay next month. I’m also a Zumba instructor. All to stay fit and healthy. I’m appalled that this company is trying to pimp my success by saying they had a hand in it!
PLEASE read Renee’s REAL story on her site Cutie Booty Cakes.
I will continue to share stories like this in hopes that it prevents at least one person from buying the next “weight loss miracle pill” or scam. Enough is enough.
Note: If your photos have been stolen and used to promote a weight loss product or supplement, send me a message on my Facebook page with the following information and I will share your story as well.
