The Trouble with Pitchmen–Infomercial King Fails to Pay Big Fine!

The old saying: ‘If it’s too good to be true, it probably is,’ holds true.  From exercise equipment to kitchen gadgets to car polish, television infomercials seem to be anywhere and everywhere no matter what channel you turn to, and it doesn’t have to be late night anymore. And the personalities of the pitchmen on those infomercials range from the loud and excited to the sweet and subdued. But they are convincing.

Consumers spend millions upon millions on products they hope will make their life easier or make them look better. But not all pitchmen and the products they represent are on the up and up. Case and point: Kevin Trudeau.

Trudeau is one of the most recognizable faces on television, and apparently one of the most dishonest. His reign of criminal activity goes all the way to the early 90’s when he was convicted of larceny and credit card fraud, and in 1998 he was sued by the FTC for making false and misleading claims in a weight loss book.

It was a pretty hefty fine: $37.6 million. And as of recent he’s been found in contempt of court for failing to pay it.
