This just in . . . . . .

The KTLA website proclaims: KTLA Exclusive!!! Internet diet Scam Exposed



Part 1 of a series exposing Kimmer of the Kimkins diet aired Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 10 PM on KTLA television in Los Angeles.

Part 2 is due to air Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Chip Yost is the investigative reporter working on this story.

Watch the video of Part 1 here.

The voice heard is unmistakably that of Kimmer, heard on the phone interview podcast with Jimmy Moore. Others who have spoken to Kimmer on the phone confirm that it is definitely her voice.

Other recent information sheds even further confirmation on the fact that Kimmer of Kimkins definitely IS Heidi Diaz as seen on this video, and definitely is NOT the 'lady in the red dress' previously presented as Kimmer's 'after' photo.
Watch for further developments as this unfolds.

Robert Charlton of Alliance Investigative Services, the private investigator working on this case, describes the surveillance in more detail here.

This controversy has now spilled from internet diet sites out into the real world, and it will only spread from here. The end is near for Kimkins.

Once again, I plead with the few remaining Admins of Kimkins to walk away, far and fast, in case it is not too late.

I plead with the members remaining at the Kimkins site to really examine the evidence with an open mind and heart. Whatever you may think about the motives of those on 'the other side' and however poorly or hurtfully it may at times have been conveyed, please just be willing to examine the preponderance of evidence, and realize that there is even more that is not published here, but is in the hands of authorities even at this moment.

There is a reason this is newsworthy, and it is not a jealous business vendetta, or overly-dramatic bloggers or bored online posters, as Kimkins members have been told. It would not have gotten this far if it was just a smear campaign with no basis. This is making the news, and will continue to make bigger news, because Heidi K. Diaz is defrauding the public with reckless disregard for their health and safety.

Leave Kimkins and find an online home elsewhere now, where you can continue to lose weight in a supportive and healthy environment. Soon, you will have no choice anyway, because the Kimkins site as you knew is going, and will soon be gone.

I hope they listen to your advice, Becky. I really do. And I hope the Kimkins site is shut down before the week is over.

Looking forward to part two of the news report. Man, what a nice way to start the day...

(Note: I also thought the voice perfectly matched just in those few words what I heard on the Jimmy Moore interview. The exact same timbre. Not that I had any doubt it was HER...)

Thank you Becky for your continued hard work on bringing the truth to light. You are a gentle soul and I hope the sincerity in your words touches the hearts of those who still believe Kimkins is going to be their 'savior'.

Vicki said...

Wow! I am more glad than ever that I never gave in and joined Kimkins. It might not matter to a lot of people, but a persons ethics really matter to me. Thanks again for having the strength to bring this all to light Becky.

Awesome, Becky. I just watched the clip and loved how thorough it was, for what little it had to work with. I'm doing my part - filing a complaint with the BBB as a consumer to make sure I go through the proper channels. It's only $60, but I want my money back.

I'm still getting emails from ex-Kimkins members saying the diet "works" and how they don't have to like Kimmer/Heidi but want to keep on the diet...how can they figure out a way to do it???

I just have to shake my head at such retardation. I pray for them, and for their health. Sounds like people just aren't "getting" it yet. Pity.

Just posted this on Kimkins:

This will be my last post on Kimkins.

I just saw the clip on the KTLA website and I'm shocked. Even more shocking was the explanation from Kimmer regarding the woman featured on the video clip, who 100% looks dead on like Kimmer's before picture.

I have brought many people to Kimkins because it worked for me. However, I can no longer reconcile this fact with the mounting evidence that Kimmer/Heidi Diaz is a FRAUD. Her before and after picture was a fraud, her whole story was a fraud. This is clearly a business model built on deliberate, calculated dishonesty.

This whole charade of one person has turned this once loving, nurturing community into one of fear caused by a few fear-mongering admins, who are so eager to defend this lie.

As a person who values integrity and honesty with extremely high regards, I feel I can no longer be a part of this scam. I wish to apologize to those I've snapped at before, because they were trying to inquire the truth. Please forgive me. I acted prematurely and now I know what you know.
