A scam and fake reviews featured alongside a product named Nature's Leaf CBD Gummies.

In June 2024, Google users searched for both Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies reviews and Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam. The scammers’ effort with promoting this odd product was nothing more than their latest effort to promote false promises about CBD gummies and keto gummies. Unidentified scammers have run these fraudulent gummy scams for years, all in an attempt to fool innocent people to provide payment details, draining them of a lot of their hard-earned money.

The Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam promoted fake endorsements from famous people. For example, in June, the late pastor Charles Stanley, legendary actor Clint Eastwood, singer Blake Shelton and country star Dolly Parton all featured in scams with Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies. This strategy of featuring celebrities next to products with which they have no involvement is a common scam tactic. I found no evidence online of any famous people ever endorsing Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies.

In this story, I’ll break down everything I know about the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam and fake reviews. I will provide details regarding why it’s so difficult to find trustworthy Google search results for the product. I will also dial through the three steps of how the scam works. Additionally, I will attempt to provide any information I can regarding how to contact the purported company.

Note: I have researched these gummy scams for several years. Along the way, I somehow became an expert about how these specific scams work. I encourage everyone to read through each section below as I have attempted to pack this story with helpful information.

Searching for Answers About Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies

A Google search for a Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies official website initially yielded no results. However, I later found at least one active website. I will provide information about that website later in this article.

The Google search results I reviewed showed scammers posted fake reviews for Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies. The scammers posted this content on any website they could find, all in order to dominate Google search results. This strategy allowed them to attempt to control the narrative and bury any credible reporting exposing the scams.

For example, scammers often promote CBD and keto gummies in online forums having nothing to do with the products. Scammers also create event listings on Eventbrite.com, Patch.com and other websites. Of course, the product has nothing to do with a scheduled event. Moderators on these websites usually remove the posts and listings within several hours or days.

Scammers attempt to dominate Google search results by posting information about the product just about everywhere.

Further, scammers apparently pay for sponsored content articles on news websites and community blogs. For example, scammers promoting Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies apparently paid for a scammy sponsored content article. The story appeared on the Washington state-based news website for the Covington-Maple Valley Reporter.

Scammy YouTube Marketing

Another way scammers promoted the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam was on YouTube. For example, one unidentified scammer promoted the product on the Flamengo Online YouTube channel.

The video displayed 490 likes, 18 user comments and 7,900 views. All of the comments appeared fake. For example, one comment read, “Thanks for all of the great information. I will be.” A comment from a different account finished the thought, “giving CBD gummies a try soon.” In other words, one person likely submitted all 18 user comments. The views and likes displayed for the video also appeared artificially boosted. It’s unclear why YouTube allows scammers like these to exploit their policies.

The woman pictured in this video promoted numerous scam products in recent years.

A further look at the YouTube channel revealed one of two reasons as to why the channel hosted scam content. First, someone possibly hacked into the account. However, my own research pointed to a second reason as far more likely for why the channel hosted scam videos. It’s likely the person who owns the channel received payment to let scammers upload their videos to the channel’s more than 76,200 subscribers.

Similar Company and Product Names

Scammers often promote CBD and keto gummies products with names similar to those of other companies and products.

In the case of Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies, I found information for a skincare company named Nature’s Leaf. Please note this Nature’s Leaf skincare company associated with on naturesleafskin.com has absolutely nothing to do with Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies or the scam for the gummy product. I strongly advise against calling or otherwise contacting the Nature’s Leaf skincare company. They cannot help victims of the CBD gummies scam.

Later in this article, I will provide details regarding what to do if you cannot find a way to contact the people associated with Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies or other gummy products.

How the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies Scam Works

Many scams for CBD gummies and keto gummies follow the same playbook. In the case of the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam and fake reviews, the scheme began with a misleading ad. The link in the ad directed users to a scam article. Links in the scam article then took users to the final page asking them to purchase the product.

Step One: The Scam Ad

I first noticed the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam in a Facebook ad. Meta – the parent company of Facebook and Instagram – and other online advertising companies accept money for and approve these ads.

One ad displayed to users on Facebook and Instagram in June 2024 claimed, “Megachurch pastor Andy Stanley revealed his late father Dr. Charles Stanley’s unusual last words.” The headline of the link also read, “Becky Stanley Recalls Father Dr. Charles Stanley’s Unusual Last Words.” This ad was nothing more than misleading clickbait leading users to the scam. The late Charles Stanley has no involvement with Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies or any other CBD or keto gummies.

The late Charles Stanley and his extended family have no involvement with gummies.

The point of the misleading scam ad was to lure potential victims with a surprising and sometimes shocking rumor. In the past, scammers improperly promoted the image and likeness of Oprah Winfrey, Clint Eastwood, Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton, Mayim Bialik, Keanu Reeves, Kelly Clarkson, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Dana Perino, Reba McEntire and many other famous people, all to promote scams for shady CBD and keto gummies products.

Step Two: Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies Scam Article

The link in the misleading and scammy ad about Stanley led users to the second step of the scam. That second step featured a fake article designed to fool users into believing they were reading from a prominent news source.

In the case of the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies scam and its fake reviews, the scam ads directed users to a fake Fox News article on the website roglic.cfd. Scammers often create fake articles copying the design of prominent news publishers and then post them on scam websites. Scammers execute this strategy to fool users into believing the claims have legitimacy.

The fake Fox News headline read, “We miss Charles Stanley – ‘Big Pharma, please stop your atrocities.'”

Fox News never published this fake article. Scammers copied the design of the Fox News website over to scam websites to fool users into buying Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies.

The fictional and scammy story read, in part, “And after seeing a massive decline in their sales, Pfizer started calling for Charles Stanley’s company to halt operations, saying, ‘We’re happy Mr. Charles Stanley found something to replace opioids, pain killers, and save American lives but his company is engaging in unacceptable business practices. He must cease production immediately and stop offering Nature’s Leaf CBD to the public.'”

The article later falsely claimed Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies had the ability to “instantly and permanently reverse dementia.” The article also falsely promised customers the product could help them experience a life “free from pain.”

Regarding the “reverse dementia” scam claim, the British Alzheimer’s Society published, “There are no research studies that prove cannabis, or products such as cannabis oil (CBD oil), can stop, slow, reverse or prevent the diseases that cause dementia.”

Step Three: Product Purchase Pages

The only website I located for Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies was buynaturesleafcbd.com. The website loaded for me when visiting secure.buynaturesleafcbd.com//cbd/v1/. (Clicking on this link will load a safe, archived version of the page.)

Unfortunately, the website did not display a phone number or email address for customer service or customer support. For a scammed customer, the lack of contact information makes reaching out to the supposed company a much more difficult endeavor.

Scammers published a very short and incomplete version of the terms and conditions on the Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies website. This screenshot displays the bottom of the purported legal documentation.

If any readers located any other websites for Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies, bear in mind such websites usually rope customers into subscription charges of hundreds of dollars per month. These websites often bury subscription information in the fine print at the bottom.

For any readers looking to contact the product’s customer service and support line, I recommend instead calling your credit card company. Inform your credit card company about the scam you encountered and let them know it’s possible you unknowingly signed up for a subscription. Also, tell your credit card company you request a refund and want to ensure no further scam charges appear in future months.

Strange Happenings

In the past, victims of CBD and keto gummies scams reported strange events to me in comments on my YouTube channel.

For example, some people victimized by the scam claimed the return addresses for the products did not exist. Specifically, some YouTube commenters reported P.O. Box 7000 in Smyrna, Tennessee in the 37167 zip code does not exist. That mailing address has appeared alongside numerous gummy scams in recent years.

Some scam victims told me they received charges for gummy products they later received at their doorstep despite never having ordered them. Other people told me they received gummy products at their home despite both never having ordered or paid for them.

A brushing scam could be a contributing factor to this matter. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) defines a brushing scam as one where a consumer receives a package they never ordered. The scheme may involve compromised personal information and fake verified-buyer reviews.

Additional Notes

CBD and keto gummies products oftentimes appear for purchase on Amazon.com and Walmart.com. Websites claiming to be a place legitimately selling vitamins and other supplements also sometimes list the products. While Amazon and Walmart are somewhat trustworthy company names, these listings for gummy products in no way legitimize the false claims made by scammers about the products.

For example, Amazon.com displayed several listings for a product named Nature’s Leaf Hemp Gummies. The bottle design showed as the same as that of Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies. It’s unclear what relationship this product has to Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies. I was unable to find any information for Nature’s Leaf Hemp Gummies other than the brand and seller names Livorka, Vive MD, and Sunrise Selections.

Generally, in some cases with CBD gummies, the gummy product itself might be an outright scam, even before considering any false claims made online about the product. At the same time, note that in rare cases scammers misuse the names of some CBD gummies products from American companies purportedly having no involvement with scams.

I was scammed by Nature Leaf! The advertising is deceiving and when I THOUGHT my purchase was for $47 and my CC CHARGE was $189… I called the help number immediately! I was told the system was down! I wanted to cancel my order. I reached out by email to be told the math was correct and I was being charged $94+ per bottle but would be getting two FREE bottles! My bag! Take warning! I will be contacting my CC company!
