    Default **scam alert** matador hair transplant

    This is a scam alert. Normally I make fun of clinics using photos that they have lifted from Hasson & Wong (seems to happen fairly often) but this one is a bit more serious.

    Someone had emailed to ask us if we had any affiliation with Matador Hair Transplant clinic as they appear to be using several of our results as their own. In addition, they are using the logos of the American Hair Loss Association and several other affiliations when in fact they are not members of any association whatsoever. The photos of their doctors and staff are stock generic photos available for use by anyone and are not photos of actual staff members.

    I won't put the link up but you are free to perform a Google or Bing search to find them yourself. Below is a screenshot of their homepage in which you can see the logos and our patients stolen shown at the bottom.

    All opinions are my own and may not necessarily be shared by Dr. Wong and/or Dr. Hasson.

    If you are interested in having an online consultation visit www.hassonandwong.ca

    You can tell from the state of their grammar.

    At least they stuck to the age old formula. Clinic with integrity = 15 year old girl staring at fizzy pop

    We received a notice from the company hosting the website and they told us they gave Matador a 24 hour notice to remove the images and logos from their site. As of this morning it looks like Matador is completely offline. Maybe they are switching to a new provider or maybe they are gone for good. Time will tell.
