No Prescription For Ozempic? Don’t Get Scammed On TikTok

Written by on May 16, 2024

A shortage of popular weight loss drugs like Wegovy and Ozempic have prompted a skyrocketing demand. Which has also lead to scammers on social media offering to ship weight loss drugs for lower prices — and without a prescription. A joint investigation conducted from February through April by the nonprofits Digital Citizens Alliance and Coalition for a Safer Web examined dozens of TikTok profiles offering to sell the prescription weight loss drugs at lower prices. In nearly every situation, the transaction turned out to be a scam. Some of the videos researchers found offering the weight loss drugs used testimonials, along with before and after photos showing what appeared to be results. One video featured a supposed customer’s comment, which said, “Great product, fast shipping and I lost 16 pounds already.” However, the researchers said all of those videos were actually scams to lure in vulnerable buyers hoping to lose weight.
