“Consumer Advocate” for the Credulous

Posted on 24. Dec, 2008 by in Asides, Fraud & Scams

If you watch TV late at night or Saturday in the early afternoon, chances are you’ve come across Kevin Trudeau.  He’s been a fixture on the infomercial circuit for well over a decade.  His most recent offering is the book Debt Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About.  This follows a line of books about “…Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About”.  Kevin represents the worst in informercial marketing and he’s had his trouble with the FTC and FDA in the past.  In August the FTC hit him again with a $5 Million fine and a ban from infomercial for 3 years.  Stuff like this hasn’t stopped him in the past, so he’ll be back in three years if he can’t find a way to skirt the ruling before then.  Though the recent ruling is for the weight loss book he put out a few years ago, his recent debt book isn’t much better.
