This is Rich: New Ownership for Kimkins

5 10 2007

Who would buy Kimkins?  Maybe the question should be, how much did Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) pay someone to take over?





More Surveillance Video Released to YouTUBE

4 10 2007

Slamboard just released another surveillance video of Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) captured by the Private Investigator, Robert Charlton, hired to confirm suspicions about her identity.

YouTUBE Video 2 (new)

Wow. I can’t believe how many there are, and from how few sites! I’m sure the red dress lady is out there somewhere. Maybe we could get more people involved in the search. Are there any message boards out there for men looking for russian brides? If so, we could post there, asking if any of them know where that photo is from. (Maybe somebody even married her… 😉

Does anyone know when the photo was posted? Having a timeframe might help the search…

Hats off to the people finding all of this!!! It was just a matter of time until somebody found the right site that had these pics.

Is all quiet over at Kimkins today? Are they going to hope nobody over there sees any of this and just not comment?

I scoured Globaladies.com (another Russian site) last night, and came across these 2 pics that looked vaguely familiar.

Does anyone recognize these ladies as “after” pics on Kimkins?

I may be way off base, but thought I’d post the links anyway.

Here they are:

I knew Roz was way too hot to be from this side of the world! 🙂

I wish I could search those sites at work! Stupid filters. I’m ready to find the red dress woman! It’s like all of this is building up to the mother-of-all-photos. It’s almost like Heidi is sitting by watching and laughing at how deeply ‘hidden’ the mother-picture is as we unravel all this.

Though I doubt she’s laughing.

She’s probably packing. 🙂

And I would like to know how she is going to explain this one? Before she said she has no control over whether or not members send in fake pics. But I seriously doubt they all sent in fake pics from a russian dating site! I mean, give me a break!

If the people over “there” stay, they are crazy!!!

October 4, 2007 at 2:14 pm

regandy

The more that is uncovered the STUPID-er I feel. I could KICK myself for being so trusting. Yeah, yeah, I know I wasn’t the only one, but still it really makes me feel sooooo stupid.

I think they are going to find the woman in the red dress buried somewhere in that website!! Excellent work!!

October 4, 2007 at 2:17 pm

Amy (curlygirl)

As one of the “real” success stories, it’s clear we were the minority. It makes me so mad that the handful of us that were real were (and probably still are) up there with a bunch of russian mail order brides! I feel so used! Seriously, if you have not left Kimkins yet, do it now! This is coming from someone who did lose weight and had no side effects and even I am saying – KIMMER IS A FRAUD! You don’t need her to lose weight! There are tons of other forums that will provide support and these other forums are filled with REAL people and REAL success stories, not fake successes pulled off of russian bride sites.

October 4, 2007 at 2:22 pm

Holy crap. Hopefully KTLA and the BBB catch on to this part of the fraud.

DucksForTruth&Justice

Hugs for those who have been hurt by this SCAMMER. You did nothing wrong and you are far from stupid, what you are guilty of is being honest and trusting people who believes in others. You could never treat others this way and had absolutely no way of knowing what Heidi Diaz was capable of. My family was infected by someone with this type of personality disorder and it stung us very deeply. It takes time to heal, please surround yourself with those you know who are true and honest and be kind to yourselves I will tell you that your sh*t detector will be on high alert from now on and you will be able to spot garbage a mile away. Heidi/Kimmer is truly is a very sick human being.

Amy (curlygirl) – THANK YOU for coming out and saying this! I am so glad you are speaking up like this, since you have always been such a role model and inspiration to others. I hope people listen to you!

Kimmer’s misuse and exploitation of others is a crime, in every sense of the word.
PLEASE, people, do not have ANY part of her criminal enterprise!

Folks, you can lose weight with friends for support, WITHOUT aiding and abetting a criminal.

Amy is a REAL success, and has her own free forum, http://forum.eatinglow.com/

Also, lots of Kimkins folks are at http://www.lowcarbdiscussion.com/

Others have joined http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ and http://forum.lowcarber.org/. among others.

Just leave! Find a better online home. You’ll have to soon anyway — the site is going down before too long.

October 4, 2007 at 4:18 pm

Eat, People, EAT!

I remember Heidi’s defense about people sending her those photos, and she also said that SHE tried to Photoshop them to adjust the lighting since most people don’t know how to take good photos of themselves. (insert rolling eyes) What are the odds that EVERY one of those alleged members lifted their pics from the same Russian site??? ROFLMAO.

It was also interesting when ALL of those new photos showed up at the same time after the remodel. She got rid of the old ones that people had questioned, and just put up a batch of new fake ones.

It’s so insulting how she just laughs in the face of morality. Some of those pictures clearly looked dated and just embarassingly awkward, we hashed over these at ALC but there was no way of figuring out where they came from. This is a MAJOR coup! Much props to all of the cyber detectives for finding these!

Wonder what she’ll put up now?

October 4, 2007 at 4:55 pm

Caro

I am the person who found the fake “Annette” photo that got this ball rolling,
and even I am shocked that almost every single success story is a fake! I thought there would be a few, sure, but this many? Unbelievable!

I just had a hunch yesterday afternoon, and got lucky right away. The photos would have to be available *somewhere* and there was something vaguely Russian/Eastern European about many of the them. Pay dirt!! I knew once I posted it everyone would dig until every last one was turned up and they did so in record time! Awesome work guys!

Caro (aka vanillasky, autumn, cilantro) <–needs to pick a name and stick with it! 🙂

I can’t believe you all would be so suspicious of someone wanting to look their best to trap..er I mean find their future mate…Kimmer to the rescue!

October 4, 2007 at 6:17 pm

Amy

the woman in the red dress was actually on the success stories the other week as Nikki?? she lost 60 pounds in 3 months. She was an Italian who loved to cook but changed her lifestyle..it was the same woman who had the dark hair and the brown shirt and was leaning in for a picture. Which I think, is the same as the red dress lady…

October 4, 2007 at 7:12 pm

Caro, you are amazing.
I had the Russian/Eastern Euro hunch too!
But then I thought, what are the odds?
Next time, I’ll dive!

Also, here is another FAKE before and after from Kimkins.

Here is the link to the Elena’s Models site:

http://www.elenasmodels.com/index.php?ap=905015

Here is the link to Kimmer’s before and after pics and story:

http://www.kimkins.com/component/option,com_cxportfolio/task,showdetails/id,4/Itemid,/

Here is her “Story”

Dina
Age: 27
Height: 5′ 6″
Starting Weight: 219
Final Weight: 122
Total Loss: 97
How Long: 6 months
97 Pounds Gone to a Size 3!
Hello, my name is Dina. All I can say is I’m glad I found Kimkins. Before I was so overweight and so unhappy. Every day seemed like a struggle. Even caring for my children was a chore because my knees and back hurt.

I work for a small accounting company and we moved to new offices. Of course we got new furniture, including desks and chairs. Can you imagine how I felt when I sat on the chair and it broke! The handle you can adjust up or down wouldn’t even work! The buyer apologized and said, “Oh, I’m sorry. They are guaranteed to hold up to 200 pounds. It must be defective.” Little did he know I weighed almost 230 pounds!

I know my husband found me unattractive. He didn’t really say anything bad but never anything good either. Finally I was tired of being fat. Tired of being tired. I found a blog that talked about a “Kimkins” diet and everybody was losing weight very fast. I never heard of Kimkins but the blog said it was an easy diet to follow. I had a new baby and needed something easy.

We don’t have a computer at home so I used the one at work during lunch. I looked at the diet rules and the food list. Then I read some [personal] journals and there were girls just like me. The same problems and sad about being overweight.

I decided I wanted to be a “Big Loser” too and started the diet the next day. It wasn’t hard, but I did have one cheat day on our anniversary. I didn’t lose that week which showed me I had to be serious if I wanted to lose fast.

Now I can hardly believe I lost almost 100 pounds! I wear a size 3! My husband can’t believe it either. Now he says many nice things! I feel so proud of myself these days.

All I can say is if you want a good diet then pick Kimkins. Two of the girls at work are trying it and one already reached goal but she didn’t have as much to lose. I’m proud of them and I’m proud of me!
