FTC targets spammers

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

A U.S. district court in Illinois ordered a halt to spam e-mails and bogus claims for Kaycon's hoodia weight-loss supplements and human growth hormone anti-aging products after FTC filed a complaint against the firm. Kaycon falsely claimed its hoodia products would cause rapid and substantial weight loss, "including as much as 40 pounds in a month" and its HGH products would "turn back or reverse the aging process," among other claims, FTC states. The federal court ordered an ex parte temporary restraining order and asset freeze of the firm, and will decide after an Aug. 27 hearing whether to extend the asset freeze until the FTC's case is resolved. The FTC ultimately seeks to permanently bar the firm from further violations and it forfeit its "ill-gotten gains"...
