I’ve written before about twice-convicted felon Kevin Trudeau. He’s a well-known infomercial pitch man who wrote Weight Loss Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About.
Problem now is, he never paid his $37.6 million (USD) fine to the Federal Trade Commission. Says he ain’t got the moolah, but the FTC doesn’t believe him.
According to the government, credit card records demonstrate that the corporate entities owned or directed by Babenko [his wife] have been paying almost all of Trudeau’s American Express and Diner’s Club bills. Her companies, the authorities say, have also paid for Bentley automobiles, private jet travel and the rent on a 14,000-square-foot mansion in Illinois.
I don’t feel sorry for Trudeau; I’m sad for the folks he mislead in to buying his book.
