In April/May this scam pushed Caralluma in a weight-loss fraud.
In June, Caralluma was temporarily withdrawn, and replaced with another weight-loss scam - CLA Safflower Oil and Forskolin Fuel and Garcinia Cambogia depending on your geography. Caralluma has been restored as a current alternative.
Since December 2015, the sites seemed to be redirected to savethechildren.org.
The redirection was achieved using a triple obfuscated java script method. This was a subterfuge to escape detection by law enforcement and registrars.
In actual fact, they were still sending victims to the weight-loss fraud sites, when clicked from within their spam.
