Why There's Money To Be Made In These Tubes, Big Money!

Stuff you learn reading the SN-L:

A Springfield business owner pleaded guilty in federal court to her role in a conspiracy to fraudulently market dietary supplements over the Internet with illegal claims that these supplements could prevent, treat or cure a number of diseases.

Several Web sites were used to sell nearly $12 million worth of the products in 2005 and 2006.

The co-conspirators claimed that six products sold over the Internet had been proven reliable through clinical testing for the treatment and prevention of diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, gout, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heartburn and diarrhea.

In reality, no clinical testing had been performed.

By pleading guilty, Lor agreed to forfeit to the government property derived from the proceeds of the offenses, including $11,954,648, three properties in Springfield, properties in Rogersville and Pleasant Hope, three vehicles and various bank accounts.
$12 Million?
