    I knew he's a scumbag, but here I thought he was at least a smart, slick scumbag.

    He was facing civil damages, now he gets to look at criminal charges.

    "THEY" don't want you to know!

    I used to really like the one with the Fake Larry King. I think it was the burned out bulbs in the US map behind them.

    Well, THAT'S good news! He is a shyster of the highest degree and it's way past time for him to pay.

    He obviously has lotsa phools who buy the act, thus the army sending the emails. I have a neighbor who is among them. There's no fantasy in the world that couldn't have a conspiracy theory behind it.

    The first thing "THEY" went after him for was credit card fraud. I guess "THEY" didn't want you to know he was honest (not!).

    I got to know who is buying stuff from him.

    He has been kicked in the nads so many times by the FTC. I hope he ends up going to jail for whatever reason they can come up with.. He is a scourge.

    [corrected]The judge cited Kevin Trudeau for contempt of court and warned him he could go to prison. He made Kevin Trudeau post a $50,000 cash bond which he has to pay today.

    As it is with all these scammers, spammers and Do Not Call violators. They figure they can make the bundle of dough quick and be sunning in their private villa in Costa Rica before the FTC and the feds can really do anything. They've been right.

    ---

    The point is Trudeau uses the FTC chasing him as the '"THEY" don't want you to know.'

    Beside the stealing, some of his half-baked cures can kill people - especially if they shun conventional medicine.

    A "flood" of emails and texts to the judge's personal (probably) email and his blackberry?

    Yes.

    His is an interesting case. He is the worst of the worst, preying on the ill and uneducated and his "remedies" have no doubt killed more people than will ever be counted. He is one of the greatest snake oil salesman of all-time but unfortunately he is dangerous so he quits being funny rather quickly for me. I happened to catch one of his infomercials not long ago, it was one with "Reverend" Robert Tilton's ex-wife as hostess feeding him the nonsense questions about his books and inquiries about how the evil drug companies, the FTC and the FDA are out to get him and prevent him from providing natural remedies for many illnesses.

    I am amazed our system allows him to hide behind the first amendment right to freedom of speech to fleece his victims and make his fortune. He has been stopped from selling products that do nothing but has been able to sell his books that do nothing but rip people off for years now. Some people actually believe this crook has a cure for AIDS, cancer and herpes?

    You NEVER contact the judge directly. That's what court is for.

    A Contempt of Court order is often a civil order and it is a bloody hammer a judge can use if he finds a party in a court proceeding has disobeyed or been disrespectful of a court or judge or the legal process. Arranging for a flood of text messages and emails to be sent to a judge is surely an act of contempt and I suspect that finding won't be overturned by an appellate court.

    My hope is Mr. Trudeau ends this series of trials in jail. Criminal convictions, civil contempt findings or anything else that can get this guy back in jail where he belongs is great by me.

    KT did jail time many years ago. Can't quite remember what it was for.

    That was the credit card fraud.

    Kevin Trudeau used to sell claptrap cures like shark cartilage.

    He got into the book selling business when he got out of jail in hopes that any effort to stifle that could be overcome on free speech grounds.

    That talk show hosted by Danny Bonaduce.

    (Who said on his radio show that he got a Dodge Viper out of the deal.)

    The awful thing about Trudeau isn't that he's a fraud. That's annoying, illegal, and bad, but not awful.

    The awful thing about Trudeau is his "advice" and "cures" can lead people not to seek real treatment. Ultimately, I suspect lots of people die because of Trudeau.

    How can somebody essentially agree to let people unnecessarily die to make a few bucks? That's despicable beyond belief.
