MEGHAN Markle has been targeted by scammers who are using her name to plug potentially dangerous diet pills online.
The Duchess of Sussex was featured in a bogus online campaign for ‘Keto Weight Loss’ tablets – using images before and after her pregnancy.

One fake quote on a site called First Level Fitness says: “Post pregnancy my body had lost its shape. But, with keto body tone, I came back.”
Another outrageous advert claimed Megan wanted the pills to be her “passion project” because she is “obsessed over her weight”.
Buckingham Palace is fighting to remove the “illegal” adverts which claim Megan used the tablets to lose weight, according to the Sunday Mirror.
A royal source added: “This is obviously not true and an illegal use of the Duchess’ name for advertising purposes. We will follow our normal course of action.”
One fake advert was set out to look like an article using the headline: “Meghan Markle in trouble for disobeying Queen Elizabeth’s orders”.
It claims Meghan found herself in “hot water” with the Queen and Royal Family for seeking her own “outside help for her weight loss treatment Keto Pure”.
The ad for the diet pills, which cost £19.99 for 60, then runs made-up quotes from a site with Entertainment Today – which does not exist.
“All my life I’ve been passionate about taking care of my weight due to the pressures of Hollywood to stay young and look fit.
“For the last 10 years I’ve been travelling the world and sourcing organic ingredients and weight loss remedies.”

It claims Meghan has launched an all-female-owned weight loss line, which was described as her “dream”.
The fake interview then adds: “The Royal Family is not happy with me splitting my time up.”
Another advert featured a picture of Meghan with the Queen.
A fake quote from the Duchess said: “We were clear from the beginning keto would be my passion project.
“They know how much I obsess over weight loss and I put my entire heart and soul into this product to make it perfect.”
In reality, the Duchess has not publicly discussed her weight since she began dating Prince Harry in 2016.
Experts have warned about diet pills advertised online which offer too good to be true results.
Tam Fry, chairman of the National Obesity Forum, said if you want to diet, you could seek advice from regulated professionals.
