Cancer drug scam

I just watched a story on fox news about a website that sells a drug that the company claims can cure cancer. Here is the website if you want to check it out:
http://cancercure.org/

If you want to see the video of fox news exposing the scam go to foxnews.com, then click on the free video button in the upper right hand corner, then click on "only on fox", then click on "fox investigates".
The reporter said that when he went into the office they hit the camera man in the head with a bar!
Anyway, I went to the site and the claims they make are just crazy. It litteraly says that this drug will cure cancer. I kind of felt sick to my stomach when I saw these claims they were making because some people really fall for this stuff. These are the kind of people that I think go to hell. So a judge has forced them to stop selling the product, but in the story they said that they are still selling it through the phone. So I called the number on the website, and sure enough the lady answered the phone, "CancerCure, can I help you?"!

There is three parts to the news story. Watch all three, they are very interesting.

My favorite scam has to be Leptoprin "When is a diet pill worth $178 a bottle?" or whatever the price is. I hope no one is actually paying that kind of money for a non prescription drug that actually says in the fine print that they don't claim the stuff actually works.

I think that that is actually a very smart scam actually. They are following the type of gimick designer clothes do. They charge 100 dollars for a pair of jeans that cost $2.15 to make. The higher the price, the more people want them. With the leptoprin I think people (stupid people) think that man it is so damn expensive it has to be worth it (just like the add says). If they sold it for five dollars a bottle then no one would buy it.

Yeah, that kind of stuff really is funny. And most of the people that fall for that basically deserve to get ripped off for believing that garbage. But ripping off dying cancer patients; that is just sad. Cancer patients would probably be more susceptible to these kind of false claims.

Very sad. If you're dying, most people figure they have nothing to lose. People that take advantage of this should have special punishments. :mad:

They're in Boca Raton, Florida. They don't have an address listed. I wonder why that is.

Read their FAQ - it's ridiculous!
Question: If Cancer Control® really cures cancer, why has my doctor not told me about it?
Answer: You must have a bad doctor who's primary concern is his mortgage bills that need to be paid and his kids extra lessons to help them through school. Your health is of secondary concern. Obviously, your doctor does not make as much money if you get cured quickly.
Question: What is exactly in the Cancer Control®? Are these chemicals?
Answer: No, they are not chemicals. Cancer Control® has developed an all natural process of creating certain ingredients that are similar to natural ingredients.
Of course our process of making these ingredients is secret.
Question: Does Cancer Control® cure everybody's cancer?
Answer: Yes. The only people that have not been cured or have a slow recovery or slow shrinking cancer, are the people that refuse to follow the recommended dosage. Obviously if your going to second guess your dosage and take half or a quart of the dosage the results will be slowed down.
Question: Why is the dosage high?
Answer: Because you want to get cured quickly.

String them up by their toes I say!

Well, they're web server is in fact in the US, so I see no reason why they're still online and doing business. I'm going to write an email of complaint right away. Which agency is most relevant - FDA?

Also note they're linking to another fraud site that pretends to be the FDA: www.fda-approvals.com[/URL]

I'm trying to figure out whom to email - the FDA website is a tangled web of user-friendliness. Am I reporting a problem with a product?

More fraud!

The Fighting Diseases Association, Inc. is a private, non-governmental scientific, and public health oraganization that oversees the quality of both prescription and OTC mediations that account for 25 cents of every dollar spent by consumers. The Fighting Diseases Association is not affiliated with the US federal government nor any state, city or county agency.
Ha!

Well, I sent a complaint to one of the FDA contact emails - they tell me they'll respond within 48 hours.

edit: Oh wait, I forgot, it's Christmas Day! More like 96 hours.

Another good fraud is "we'll send you a free sample you just pay 25 dollars shipping and handling."

Question: Can I take Cancer Control® after surgery?
Answer: Yes, that would be very wise since your body needs all the immune system boost it can get and Cancer Control® boosts your immune system. In fact, this product is developed after research for a flu cure.

How does improving an immune system (for treating the flu or whatever) have anything to do with killing cancer cells? WOW

They claim their cure is "secret". And then they list the active ingredients. :uhh: Anyway, here they are:
3-HYDROXY-4-TRIMETHYLAMMONIOBUTANOATE

5-CARBOXYPENTANOAMIDO-3-MERCAPTO-N-CARBOXYMETHYLPROPANOMIDE

MERCAPTOPROPANIC,CARBAMOYLBUTANOIC,METHYLTHIOBUTANOIC ACID

2, 6-DIAMINOHEXANOIC ACID

Cancer Control® has developed an all natural process of creating the above specially designed ingredients, and has specially treated these ingredients according to a secret process and special secret formula.

The last one is the amino acid lysine. I don't recognize the others - the entire third line seems like a list of foul-smelling substances?
