Weight Loss Pill Marketer in Settlement with New Jersey Attorney General
On August 16, 2005, New Jersey Attorney General Peter C. Harvey and Consumer Affairs Director, Kimberly Ricketts, announced that Goen Technologies Corp. and related companies ("Goen"), which allegedly lured consumers to weight-loss and stop-smoking seminars by promoting hypnotism as a drug-free alternative, have agreed to pay restitution to the consumers who filed complaints with the Division of Consumer Affairs and revise marketing practices. In addition to customer restitution, Goen will pay the State $750,000 to fund future consumer initiatives and to pay its investigative costs.
