How do these scam sites get away with selling fake health products?

It’s really amazing and sad that there are so any scams online that are selling “cures” for health problems that have to cure. Some of the sites almost are believable they are made so well. I would think someone would sue the companies for making fake products because there is no cure for it.

For example, I came across an ad on a News page that said a cure was created on Shark Tank and funded. I clicked on it and it showed the pictures of these two sisters, The Khalife sisters who are supposed to have created CBD gummies that are supposed to get rid of tinnitus in a week. At the bottom of the article they have the bottles for sale. I couldn’t believe it because that’s a huge deal if it was true. They would be as rich as Trump if they made this product and it worked. So I researched and found lots of sites selling this product but claiming it did other things also. Red flags started flying and I looked up the Shark Tank episode the sisters appeared on YouTube. The sisters actually pitched a totally different product aimed at kids. So all these sites using their pictures and Shark Tank reference basically lied.

How the heck do these scam sites get away with it?

    If you ever have seen “medium” John Edward’s show, the douchebag who claims he speaks to dead people, you will see there is a disclaimer that states something like the show should be viewed as a work of fiction and the company takes no liability for anything said by Edward on the show.

    Their products usually have similar disclaimers hidden in the fine print, about results not being guaranteed or expected and that the company accepts no liability for it not working. This is hidden in the fine print so it is not easy to immediately see that they open admit the product doesn’t work

  2. Any website will get away with anything until reported and reviewed. Otherwise nobody will ever think of investigating your website, even if you sell live unicorns, or terrorist services

    Partially because supplement claims aren’t regulated. Full explanation at: [Supplement Pills That Promise Too Much](https://www.aarp.org/health/drugs-supplements/info-2016/drug-vitamin-supplement-claims.html)

    *Article highlights:*

    Unlike prescription or over-the-counter medicines, supplements are regulated by the U.S. government as food, not medicine, so manufacturers don’t need to prove to regulators that their products are effective or safe before coming to market.

    The problem often lies with the product’s marketing. Regulators prohibit supplement manufacturers from making false or misleading claims. But they don’t actively police the industry, and usually take action only after getting consumer complaints.
