I saw his paid advertising, where he repeadedly stated "3 free books, just one low shipping & handling charge". Since I am curious about "too good to be true" claims, I called their toll-free number. I was told that there would be a fee of $9.95 for S&H, AND a membership fee for their monthly newsletter of $59.95! When I stated I did not want the newsletters, just the books, I was told it was part of the deal. When I told her repeatedly that I was watching him speak, and that he was not telling about the membership fee, she stated "he says it at the beginning of the program". What a rip-off! I didn't realize until I came onto this website that he is the same man who sells the book "Debt Cures" - which I bought, and which had absolutely no new info in it that I couldn't get from any magazine article. When I tried to send the book back, I was told that the time had expired (they measure from the date they supposedly ship until the date they would receive it back in their office, which means you would have to send it express mail & pay for certified mail to ensure they received it), and that I would have to pay a 'restocking fee'. I took my chances & sent it back regular mail - and never got my money back. They stated they had never received it. So, I paid $20 to rent the book, essentially. Why is this guy not in jail? If he was selling these on a streetcorner from a suitcase he would be! At best he is practicing medicine without a license. At worst, he could be responsible for many deaths, if people believe his claims & refuse traditional medical treatment. I believe in a combo of both, traditional and natural remedies - you can find natural remedies on the web, or by going to a health food store. Someone ought to do something about this man! I have already contacted my local TV station and asked them to take his commercials off - I thinking of starting a petition to send to all the local stations. If he can't get his ads on the air, he can't do as much damage!

I sell this crap

AUTHOR: ladyharley - (United States of America)

I work for liveops and sell Kevin Treadeau and his rip off products. He has been in trouble several times with the FTC.  Anyone who buys the crap advertised on TV deserves what they get. I'm sorry, it's all scams in one form or another.
