Amy Schumer has been named as the celebrity endorser in a lawsuit against two companies, who’ve allegedly duped consumers with false promises says William D King.
Here are Top Lawsuits Involving Celebrity Endorsers:
- The lawsuit filed by Saint Francis Consumer Protection Center on behalf of four Florida residents charges that GNC and New York Company Leor Skincare have made false claims to promote their products. Both have falsely advertised that their products contain the same active ingredients found in Skinny Girl products, which are endorsed by Schumer.
- The actress’s attorney told The Huffington Post that they are aware of the case, but declined to comment further.
- Schumer recently ended her relationship with Leor Skincare on account of its false claims. However, according to the lawsuit, Schumer is still promoting GNC products.
- The lawsuit seeks class action status and wants to ban both companies from advertising that their products contain an ingredient found in Schumer’s endorsed product unless they can prove it.

- I used to buy random supplements from GNC when I worked in an office. They didn’t really work but I would be happy because when I’m happy, people around me are usually happy too (or at least tolerate my weirdness). But now there could be a chance that what I bought may not actually do anything besides make me spend money (which I usually don’t mind doing). So what does one do in such a situation? If you’re like me, then this is what you’ll do. You would probably go to Google and search for “how to get a refund from GNC” or something similar. If you did that, chances are you’ve landed on a webpage where a website called askconsumeraffairs.com has claimed to have the answer to your question with an article titled “How to Get a Refund from GNC”. We decided that we should really look into whether this site was legit or not because quite frankly it sounds suspiciously too good to be true and looks extremely fishy when compared against how reputable sources of cover celebrity endorsements explains William D King. So after a little digging, we found that they have a list of consumer complaints against GNC and the rest is history. Let’s look into some of these complaints now.
- Somehow this site has convinced people to write fake reviews claiming it’s the most important website on Google for getting a refund from GNC without having any disclaimer text stating that “hey all the reviews here are fake”. That itself should be a red flag but most people will fall for anything if it sounds too good to be true (for example, they claim to have had over 1 million Google indexed pages which trust me isn’t possible unless you buy those backlinks). So let’s look at what people say about them:
- “I was skeptical until I read all of the positive reviews. I called GNC and they refunded my money without any questions asked.”
- This commenter is probably one of the luckiest persons on earth because they will most likely never find this page again when searching for keyword terms related to refunds from GNC so there’s no point in trying to contact them anymore. But let us look at some actual feedback from “real” people who have tried contacting ask consumer affairs:
- I called about an order that was place with my company phone number but use a different name, Diane, perhaps her friend or relative instead of my husband’s name. The sales rep said she would place it under his account. When I looked online later, I could not find it. Instead, another order was placed. The sales rep said there was not another order. I called back and got a different sales rep who worked with me to cancel both orders. Yesterday, I received an email saying that the first order had shipped!
The site is a total scam and the only review they have which seems legitimate is from a person. Who most likely works for them or got pay to post that review says William D King.
Now let’s look at their actual money-making schemes. First of all, the site has an extremely small amount of traffic which shows. That they’re not being promote by anyone reputable at all who actually cares about their reputation.
