    I hated this scumbag since day one.

    Kevin Tredeau Sentenced to 10 years

    Maybe he can write a book during his sentence, "Soap dropping tips the penitentiaries don't want you to know about."

      I never really paid any attention to this guy or his books, but I knew who he was and always thought he was a little suspicious.

          Can't say I feel sorry for this guy one bit. If anything, I ALMOST feel sorry for those who were duped by him.

            Sadly as long as there are people looking for quick fix, easy answers to diet and medical problems there will always be a market for the bullshit hocked by guys like Tredeau.

              He'll probably get out way before that time because of good behavior. He probably has some money stored in some Swiss bank because after all he did live in Switzerland recently. At this point he's much safer inside a prison than in the outside world because he won't be around hardened violent criminals so he'll pretty much be safe in prison just as Bernie Madoff was where the prison guards treated him with the upmost respect. When the outside world wants to harm you then prison is a safe place for these corporate types where they are protected and cared for.

                Thanks. I have a larger version of the image unwatermarked, but unfortunately, I was asked not to share it.

                  I never liked him either and knew he was a fraud back in 2005 when I saw his infomercial on "Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know". The book actually had very few cures and kept directing people to his website to pay a monthly subscription. In 2006 he was forced to issue a revised version that actually contained some remedies. Then the debt, "free money" and weight loss books followed. He's like that 'know it all' guy at work that just talks out of his ass, but he's a great salesmen.

                  As much as I despise him I don't think he should get jail for writing books. If people were stupid enough to buy and believe what someone with no credentials were telling them then that is their own fault. If we're going to go after Tredeau then we need to go after all of these other self elected experts that write books.

                    Hopefully he will be a lesson to people following in his path. I don't agree with the point that people's "stupidity" can't be helped and it's their own fault and nothing should be done. We need government agencies to screen any claims about health. Just how a drug company can't release some medicine with bogus claims, neither should a book!

                      I remember I had to learn about him in a sales class I took in 2010, but I already knew who he was. I had seen his dumb infomercials and saw him on 20/20. I think my grandma might have bought one of his books.

                        Eh, I could tell he was full of s*** from day one. Its all well and good he got caught and put in his place, but I do have to agree with the mentality of "if you're stupid enough to buy into that load of tripe, you deserve to be taken advantage of."

                          Companies do it all the time with supplements. All they have to do is put "This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA". There is a good amount of the general population that are thoroughly convinced that the drug companies are evil and that the natural cures are the answer. Most natural cures are junk science. The ones that work are encouraged by doctors. If these people don't get their junk science from Tredeau they will get it from someone else. Tredeau was just targeted because of his history and because of his arrogance.

                          Here is the 20/20 segment on him from 2007.
