Kate Middleton Skincare Product Scam: How It Works

There is currently somebody spamming Google Adsense with ads that say that the British Royal Family is angry about something that Kate Middleton did. When you click on one of these ads, you are taken to a news site that informs that the Duchess of Cambridge teamed up with Dr. Oz to create a miracle skincare product called Advance Final Skin - a anti-aging wrinkle cream.

 

There are several websites popping up. All of them are nearly identical except for the name of the product mentioned. The comments at the bottom of the page are also fake. In between the fake news and the fake comments is a "free" trial offer for the product that Middleton allegedly created.

Kate obviously has nothing to do with it, while the scammers are using the Amazon Cloud and WhoisGuard to hide their identity, which is really suspicious. How does the Kate Middleton Skincare Scam work? Just like the other miracle product scams out there.

Watch the video below to see the 'miracle product' scam exposed:

Here is the fake Kate Middleton's anti-aging wrinkle cream website

This 'miracle product' scam comes in many variations. Every time you browse the Internet you come across ads, typically published by automatic software under legitimate news articles. When you read an article online, almost every time you see a "Sponsored Articles From Around The Web" section, right at the bottom.

In most of the cases, these are ads about "natural products" that are used for a long time, like forgotten wonder products. By consuming these products you can stay young forever, cure illnesses, or even grow hair.

In the Kate Middleton case, the advertisement are mostly featuring phrases such as: 'Royal Family Is Angry With Kate', or 'Kate Middletown Partnered With Dr. Oz To Launch Miracle Product'.

 

Clicking on the link will redirect you to a (false) news website, in this case a fake 'Entertianment Today' page. In what claims to be a genuine article, the writer has no journalistic ethics - the article are filled with shady offers and a call to action: "Get your free sample here! This special offer ends on [insert date]".

The date is automatically inserted by your computer IP's calendar, so it is always set to show the day of today.

At the bottom of the page you can also see Facebook comments from people who had used the product and of course they were satisfied with Kate's anti-wrinkles cream. If you click on any of the fake Facebook profiles, you'll be just refreshing the fake article page and be taken to the top part of it.
