Kevin Trudeau-Infomercial Guy Sentenced To Ten Years in Prison

Post by Satchman » Tue Mar 18, 2014 5:41 am

Dear WOT,

He was the guy that conned everyone out of their money, ranging from how to improve your memory, to miracle diets, and had best-selling books. Here is a story on his conviction:

I mention this to the WOT community because I think there needs to be an awareness of all those fraudulent "Speed Up Your PC" infomercials." A lot of these are just gimmicks to get your credit card information. In fact, some of these bogus claims that clean your computer can actually put malware on your system.

The "Speed Up your PC" infomercials are doing the exact same thing that Mr. Trudeau did for years. Now, he has been brought to justice in a court of law, successfully prosecuted, and convicted.

You can do wrong or right, is your choice, but do not forget that a day of reckoning is waiting

While he wouldn't wish incarceration on anyone, the experience has wound up being "one of the best, most positive things in my life," Trudeau said.
Great. May the next ten years elevate him to a state of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nirvana t=_blank]nirvana[/url].

That would be good, though he is probably writing another book

I fell for the MegaMemory thing back in the 80's. In my defense, I was pretty young and it really wasn't expensive. It worked to an extent, but it wasn't very practical. I haven't used that method of memorizing stuff since then. One thing is for sure, you never forget how to use it LoL.

Might be worthwhile to re-rate the domains Myxt divulged to refresh their ratings and citing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Trudeau#Legal_proceedings for clarity.
