Melania Trump Fake Vogue Article Gavali Advance and Vida Eye Revitalizer Scam

Was reading news on my iPhone and clicked on a link that looked like a news article regarding Melania Trump's ability to look so young and hot at 49.  I found myself looking at what appeared to be a Vogue article titled "Would You Spend $5 to Remove 20 Years from Your Face?  Melania Stuns Her Doubters as She Reveals her Miracle Wrinkle Secret."  The byline was "Vogue Magazine - Thursday June 2, 2016."

I can't find the ad on my regular computer by googling for it so I can't reproduce it here just now.  But the fact that I can't google for it is proof that something fishy is going on.  As you'll see, it's yet another scam that uses a fake news report to sell fake and useless products, just like the fake CNN stories about brain pills that I've written about elsewhere and which nobody has stopped (  Sure would be nice if Melania would step up and do something about it.

I will do my best to watch for the predictable "name change".  After I wrote about Synagen, the same ad started getting used for products with different names.  I have a feeling that will happen here too.  If you've seen this fake report touting something other than Gavali or Vida, let me know.

The article goes on to talk about how Melania has her own line of skin care products, but how she doesn't use them, and instead uses something else.  It then talks about how whatever it was has been used by a lot of celebrities and how it was on Dr. Oz a few weeks ago -- i.e. he finally revealed the secret he has been reserving for his aging celebrity clients.  Apparently he felt bad when he realized that his viewers were throwing away thousands of dollars on stuff that doesn't work, instead of using this really cheap stuff that does.  There are a number of before and after pictures, including of Jennifer Anniston.  Although it has recognizable celebrity pictures, and quotes below them -- Jennifer is saying "I looked 10 years younger in literally weeks!  Dr. Oz saved my acting career!"

Finally, the article reveals the name of these wonder cremes -- Gavali Advance and Vida Eye Revitalizer.

There's more from Dr. Oz and a picture of him in front of a before and after image of a celebrity I don't recognize.  He is saying that "Vitamin C is the secret to cheat your age.". It turns out other products don't have the right consistency and dosage.  And then there's some discussion of the other piece -- Hyaluronic acid.

And then there's a section called "We decided  to put it to the test!" -- just like Anderson Cooper and CNN on Neurocell, Synagen, Geniux, Adderin, Cogniq, etc.  (see my other blog posts on that,e.g.,,

Vogue took its 57 year old employee Brenda, gave her the treatment over 14 days, and reported on the results for day 1, day 5, and day 14 -- just like Anderson Cooper and Synagen etc.

Predictably, the article then conveniently provides a couple of links that indicate that supplies are running out, and that the promotion ends Sunday June 12 -- which happens to be today.

And then, just like in the Synagen/Cogniq/Geniux Anderson Cooper CNN Stephen Hawking scam, there are a set of fake comments that tak about how great the products are.
So far I have only seen this on my iPhone -- I don't normally click on stories about aging etc, but I guess they got me with Melania Trump.  I will try to find it and copy it onto this blog
 soon.  In the meantime, if anyone else spots it, please send me a link and I'll try to get it up.

As you'll readily see if you take a look at my other posts, this is a complete scam.  It's an "ad' masquerading as a news report, and using celebrity likenesses and names (Dr. Oz) to sell a product that those celebrities have almost certainly never heard of and certainly don't use.  Yes, it should be illegal and should be shut down.  But the Anderson Cooper-Stephen Hawking Denzel Washington Synagen scam has been popping up repeatedly since last August, so it doesn't seem like celebrities -- or even the news outlets whose names are falsely used -- care enough to stop the practice.

Below are a bunch of screenshots of this that I managed to capture on my phone.  Not in perfect order (sorry, no time), but you get the picture.  Very much like the Neurocell, Synagen, etc. scam:
