Marketers of Bogus Growth Hormone Sprays Settle with FTC
On May 29, 2007 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)announced that two operations that marketed oral sprays that were supposed to help users lose weight, reverse the aging process, and prevent or treat diseases have settled FTC charges that their claims were bogus. The FTC alleged that these businesses falsely claimed the sprays were a “fountain of youth,” containing or causing the body to produce human growth hormone (HGH). The FTC also accused one company and owner of sending illegal spam messages. One group of defendants will pay $172,500 for consumer injury.
