Lifecell anti-aging cream anti-wrinkle cream is a Scam. Here is the proof: First they post these phony credentials:"Plastic Surgeon Trained At
University Hospital of Columbia & Cornell Discovers Revolutionary New Breakthrough In Skin care Science That Makes Lines And Wrinkles Virtually Vanish Before Your Very Eyes"... This letter supposidly written dy a famous plastic surgeon. A: Dr. Raj Bhayani New York, NY....Do your own research online like I did and youll see he does not exist. I checked the records at New York Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia & Cornell. The University hospital can be searched online.This doctor is a blank. No search results. Doing a search online only brings up Lifecells "self published" blogs to help perpetuate the scam, and improve Google search results ."Note" "Here is where the doctor comes up" in the bogus web blogs to help sell the scam..A true reputable "Plastic Surgeon" has a website for his practice. Not this ficticious Dr. Raj Bhayani. The other rave of the Lifecell scam goes as follows:
Jennifer Hohenzollern is part of the European Royal Family. Jennifer's father belongs to the German Czar's Nobility (similar to the Queen of England's family) giving Jennifer the title of "Baroness," and her mother is the daughter of the Hungarian Princess. Jennifer is a famous painter based in Berlin, Germany. Her artwork is featured in galleries all over the world including: Germany, Italy, Canada and the US.) Do a search on "Jennifer Hohenzollern"
Again nothing comes up but the "Bogus Blogs" perpetuating the "The Scam"
My mother at age 74 was easily taken in by the scam and has lost over $6804.00 dollars in a year. Using three tubes a month. I called and asked for refunds but my calls were never returned. Stay away from lifecell anti-wrinkle cream. South Beach Skin Care is the company behind the Lifecell scam.
From: Amit Suneja. "Making SERIOUS Money Being Our Affiliate Is As Easy As Tying Your Shoelaces!"...Yes! That is right! This is why for you to get started and to prove to you beyond a shadow of doubt how easy it is to make money being our affiliate partner... we will give you 100% (yes that's right 100%) of the selling price, currently $189.00, of LifeCell when you sell the first unit. From the second unit onwards, you'll receive 50% of the selling price of LifeCell i.e. $94.50. To get paid your first commission check you need to sell just 2 units of LifeCell. That's it. It's that simple. But Why Are we willing to give you such a high rate of commission? We realize that you the affiliate are our #1 asset on the net. We'll promise to treat you like gold from day one with great prizes and incentives, friendly affiliate reps, and real-time online stats. You're going to love working with us, and we're sure that we're going to love working with you.

Are you excited?

I hope so. Because quite frankly, we believe, there is no skincare company on the planet that gives out such a high rate of commission for selling their products. And if this doesn't motivate you... nothing will.

There are more doctors like this doing it

AUTHOR: Gail - (USA)

Beverly Hills MD

the Doctor pictures are two fake pictures of them posing.

They real doctor with that name is MUCH MUCH OLDER.

They will not answer anything about Where they went to school or proof that they are surgeons.

Every 5 minutes they're back from holiday with the new greatest vitamin cream.

They have nothing but time on their hands to write article after article

and they look completely fake in their pictures with the fake after 5 beard shadow

cause they're too busy to shave.

 

Its ridiculous and their products suck.

 

Another faker exposed. Thank you Daniel & friends

Is it true

AUTHOR: nnuzzini - ()

that DMAE is also called Deanor and Ditholane-3 Pentonic Acid is Alpha Lipoic Acid? If that is true then I feel the marketing is misleading. The names seem to be disguised to make people believe these are some new, more advanced, and therefore more active ingredience than the other skin care products on the market. If the ingredience are those same ingredience many skin care products already use and can be purchased for less than $189. then I feel the marketing is misleading. as it makes me believe the ingredience names were changed to deceave the purchaser.  Also if many reviews were posted by people who have a vested interest in the sale of Lifecell, they are not reliable or valid reviews in my opinion.

Life Cell Anti Aging Cream

AUTHOR: Nylaine - ()

 I was reading the rip-off info pertaining to Life Cell...One person mentioned that the monthly cost for the cream was $94.00.  The ad is still runnning & it is now Nov, 2013 & THE PRICE THEY WANT IS A $150.00 A MONTH.. It seems these days that almost all trial offers are scams..They get your banking info because we have to pay the shipping charges & then if you cancel the prodeuct, they still take the $150.00 out of your bank account & of course  you can never reach them to get your refund..Well everyone, always type in the product name/scam, & see what happens before you buy..Nylaine, Layton, Utah

Daniel is absolutely right!

AUTHOR: Jessica Lee - (United States of America)

We're just normal women who are seeking out for some "miracle" skincare constantly and Lifecell is totally taking hell of an advantage on it. Customer service is close to impossible to reach after purchase - yeah sure you never had any problem with them because you're always buying and of course they're happy to take your money right? But let's be fair, things that work for you might not necessarily work for another, and 30 day money back is a HUGE bull. They charged me regardless that I've already returned their crap within the first week I received it - to be perfectly honest, I didn't even want to try after reading some reviews about allergic reaction, I have sensitive skin and absolutely don't want to go to work with a broken out face. Since the initially shipping was only $1.25 (another trick to get you in), I thought to myself not a big of a loss and sent it back. Exactly 3 weeks later, cc was charged $189. Called my bank for the matter, oh here's the best part - I was told the company would request an authorization from Visa/Mastercard (or whatever credit card you're using) network for that $189 at the time you order, so it doesn't matter if you're keeping or returning the stuff, your card WILL be charged 30 days later guaranteed. Now do you see how they work to run this unethical business? Then I decided to file a complaint to BBB and went to check the website, oh guess what? Their rating is F! Whoa what an expected "surprise" right?

Daniel is right

AUTHOR: Aimee - (U.S.A.)

This company (LifeCell) has perpetrated the most extensive, complex hoax on the internet I have ever seen. I don't mean that they don't send a product out for their $189 charge, but that the extent to which they have generated massive numbers of fake internet sites to hawk their product using the most outrageous means possible.
These people are clever, no doubt. They will take a legitimate negative review and incorporate it into their scam sites. And look at the way they are smearing Daniel here. Unbelievable.

They list product ingredients their web site, but they use really obscure names for the substances you would recognize immediately if they used the common names instead. For example, they call DMAE (which is a commonly known over the counter supplement) 'Deanol'. Wanna guess what 'Dithiolane-3-Pentanoic Acid' really is? That is their name for the commonly known 'Alpha Lipoic Acid'! They are using the same ingredients that are commonly found in many other antiaging products! Why would you do that? Why use really obscure names for things people would otherwise recognize immediately? Well, that would make it easy for people to see that they are using the same ingredients as everyone else.

If you do a search for "LifeCell reviews" on the internet, you will see hundreds, if not thousands, of links to their affiliates web sites (their affiliates are selling their product for a percentage of profits) where they post glowing reviews of this product.

Their marketing is sleazy, aggressive, and I would think fraudulent as they are referring to non-existent people and making up fake reviews. I think the way they have smeared Daniel here is unconscionable. These people are vicious.

I wouldn't buy their product if it were the last antiaging cream on earth, based on their horrible, unethical marketing practices alone.

Lifecell Ripoff

AUTHOR: Hiya - (U.S.A.)

I used to know this doctor who is actually Dr. Rajendra Bhayani and is not a certified US plastic surgeon he is an ENT surgeon working in NYC so this a fraud since this doctor is not a practicing plastic surgeon and has no right to say that he performs plastic surgery. He holds a US certificate as a Head and Neck Surgeon and did his residency in Columbia University medical school. This guy has NPD personality disorder and thinks he is what he actually is not. He claims to have done some plastic surgery fellowhip from India (which I am not even sure he has), but the fact is he is not eligible to practice in the USA as a plastic surgeon or in any other country except maybe in India (which I am still doubtful about). I knew this guy very well a couple of years back and can vouch he has an obnoxious personality suffers from a personality disorder. Please listen to me there is nothing I have to gain from this since I do not use or care for Lifecell but I want everybody out there to know the truth and not be scammed.

Irresponsible Claims?

AUTHOR: John R Barker - (U.S.A.)

I don't know this company or whether this doctor exists, or not. I have met Amit Suneja on a couple of occasions - I wouldn't call him a friend, but an acquaintance.

My issue with this claim is this:

There is also no record of Daniel Giuliani in Los Angeles that I can find online.

Does this mean he does not exist?

I have attempted to find many past friends online - I know they exist, but they are not to be found online. The point is, Daniel's point means nothing.

Second, I have read the ad in question here. It's very good copy, but it doesn't make any false claims that I've ever identified.

Thirdly, what's wrong with a company compensating their affiliates (sales force) in an appropriate and generous manner?

Finally, if your mother spent $6800 on this product, using 3 tubes per month, then how is that a scam on behalf of the company? Was your mother not able to discern for herself that the product was working or not? Or able to cancel the payment on her credit card? And if she was not able to discern for herself, then where is her family?

There are plenty of blatant scams running in the world. There are also plenty of people who accept no responsibility for their own personal actions and want to place that blame elsewhere. And a site like this is a convenient venue.

I don't *know* what this company is selling, but if your mother ordered the product and used it continually for an extended period of time, then it's un-realistic to expect a refund.

Creative Minds Marketing Group is formerly Portal Response Technology (scam)

AUTHOR: Due - (U.S.A.)

The company Creative Minds Marketing Group aka CMMG, LLC is run by a man named Warren Wise. His previous company, Portal Response Technology (listed here on ripoffreport.com), is a scam which can be read about at portalresponsetechnologyscam.blogspot.com.

His post on this thread is misleading because he is using his middle name, Allan, as his last name. Additionally, as the purveyor of a scam with PRT, one should be wary of any claims he makes on this or any other website.

CMMG operates out of the same offices in Glendale that PRT did.
The corporate business address in Beverly Hills is also the same as PRT.

RETRACTION of Negative Blogs posted on South Beach Skin Care.

AUTHOR: Cmmg - (U.S.A.)

To all whom it may concern:

Re: Lifecell Anti Wrinkle Cream South Beach Skin Care

Creative Minds Marketing Group is a major provider of Search Engine Marketing Services and has been notified than an ex-independent sales agent (Manuel Guillen a/k/a Daniel) soliciting business on our behalf has engaged in a vindictive smear campaign against South Beach Skincare. To our knowledge South Beach Skincare is a respected company and the comments posted in the blogs are without any merit whatsoever. From what we understand Mr. Guillen was unsuccessful in procuring a contract from one of the Principals causing this despicable conduct. CMMG has never experienced such a public display of anger.

It is therefore our intent to promptly correct the record, as follows:

We have confirmed in speaking with Manuel Guillen (Daniel) personally that at a time of extreme personal stress financially he posted comments on various blogs regarding South Beach Skin Care-Lifecell Anti Aging Cream and/or its Principals when the person he was dealing with decided not to do business with him at that particular time.

That in-fact these comments published are FALSE and we respectfully request that all such comments be properly ignored. We are taking the necessary steps to insure that this situation does not happen again. We have requested that Mr. Guillen post a retraction and hopefully he will facilitate our wishes in that regard.
Warren Allan, COO

is daniel a jealous competitor of Lifecell?

AUTHOR: Starmanvic - (Australia)

I was staggered to see the report by "Daniel" claiming LifeCell as a scam. This guy is either a jealous competitor or has some personal issues!

I have been a consumer of LifeCell for the past 3 months and found their product to be outstanding and by far the BEST facial cream i have EVER used. I have noticed fewer lines on my face, my eyes are less puffy & the dark circles i used to wake up to have all but gone. This stuff really works!


LifeCell's service has also been second to none. The product arrived witihn the timeframe advised & I was updated on the delivery status whilst it was in transit.

I even got emails from Michelle who promptly answered my many questions about the product! I was astounded! How many companies do you know that will follow you up AFTER they have made money out of you??

I checked out some websites & this Dr Raj looks like the real deal to me. Do a search yourself & you will see he has written many articles on skin care and treatment over the years.

In short, LifeCell has acted totally ethically with me & given outstanding service & a wonderful product.

I would say that the real scammer is this "Daniel" guy. Clearly his motives are not honourable and he must has some other motive to write such rubbish.
