Posted this in the forum where it dropped like a rock:

Finally the FDA has started to clean up the leftovers after Kevin Trudeau's infomercial scam "The Weight Loss Cure" that resurrected the Hcg diet fad from 1970.

HCG Diet Products Are Illegal

Quote:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers to steer clear of these "homeopathic" human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) weight-loss products. They are sold in the form of oral drops, pellets and sprays and can be found online and in some retail stores.

FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have issued seven letters to companies warning them that they are selling illegal homeopathic HCG weight-loss drugs that have not been approved by FDA, and that make unsupported claims.

Fraudulent HCG Products for Weight Loss

Bottom line - if you have HCG-related sites or are promoting HCG-related offers, you are at risk of federal enforcement action headed your way. The FTC are not likely to bother trying to sort out the affiliates from the vendors and you can ask Google how trying to claim that they're not the ones doing the advertising worked out with the pharmacy ads...


Not, perhaps strictly speaking about making money, but not getting fined or jailed because the FDA is after you for fradulent health claims saves you a buck or two I imagine.
