Health, diet scams among top 12 electronic "spam" frauds targeted by FTC.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

HEALTH, DIET SCAMS AMONG TOP 12 ELECTRONIC "SPAM" FRAUDS named by Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Jodie Bernstein at a press conference on "spam," or unsolicited commercial e-mail, July 14. "These [scams] offer `scientific breakthroughs,' `miraculous cures,' `exclusive products,' `secret formulas' and `ancient ingredients,'" Bernstein noted. "Some come with testimonials from `cured' consumers or endorsements from `famous medical experts' no one's ever heard of," she continued. "These bogus cure-alls are just electronic snake oil."
