Thanks for the tip, Paul Eilers…
From the Wall Street Journal yesterday, July 6:
“The Texas attorney general has asked a state court to bar Mannatech Inc. from allegedly illegal sales and marketing practices, saying the dietary supplement seller is falsely claiming its products cure, mitigate, treat or prevent diseases such as cancer, autism and Down’s syndrome, in violation of state and federal laws.”
In his news release, the Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott, stated:
“Texans will not tolerate illegal marketing schemes that prey upon the sick and unsuspecting,” Mr. Abbott said… “The Office of the Attorney General seeks to shut down an elaborate scheme to defraud innocent consumers across the nation.”
Here’s the PDF of the WSJ piece in case…
This is not about the quality of the products. Nor is it about what the products may have done for people. This is about people making promises. Claims. The curse of our industry.
Where is a company with good products, where reps do not make claims and promises to sell their products?
And it’s not just product claims that get everyone in trouble. Money claims are just as poisonous to our health. Think what’s happening with other companies right now.
No promises. No problems.
