(The companies are paying $26.5 million of the settlement because its unable to pay the rest, according to the agency.) The FTCs complaint also charged the companys chief executive Adam Goldenberg and Sensas creator, part owner and long-time pitchman Dr. Alan Hirsch with deceptive advertising for making unsubstantiated http://finance.yahoo.com/news/garcinia-cambogia-extract-investigation-now-190000760.html claims about Sensa. And what about all those testimonials from average people touting Sensa? Turns out, they were mostly compensated for their endorsements at $1,000 to $5,000 a pop plus free trips to Los Angeles. Under the FTC agreements, the company can no longer pay for endorsements without disclosure. The FTC also leveled charges against LOccitane for its Almond Beautiful Shape and Almond Shaping Delight slimming skin creams, HCG Diet Direct for its liquid drops that include an unproven human hormone and LeanSpa, a Connecticut-based company that allegedly deceptively promoted acai berries and colon-cleanse supplements on fake websites.
