Happy New Year: Weight Loss Companies Charged with Fraud


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2014 -- Just in time for all those weight loss New Year’s Resolutions comes the news of four weight loss companies and fraud charges. The charges come from the Federal Trade Commission. The companies will have pay back to consumers a combined total of $34 million for making “unfounded promises”, according to the New York Times.

The companies being charged are Sensa Products, L’Occitance, HCG Direct and LeanSpa. The companies make and sell acai berry supplements and other “weight loss” products.

“Resolutions to lose weight are easy to make but hard to keep,” Jessica Rich, the director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said. “And the chances of being successful just by sprinkling something on your food, rubbing cream on your thighs or using a supplement are slim to none. The science just isn’t there.”
