FTC Lawsuits Start With CCN Acai Berry

Submitted by on 1 January, 2018 – 4:32 pm

If you are trying to lose weight, then you know that one of the most important things you can do is work on a regular basis. You want to add a food or supplement containing amino acids to your diet acai berry, one of the nutrients that the acai berry is rich in amino acids in the acai berry help your body to build muscle in the implementation of more efficiently.

By taking the nutrients in your body every time you exercise, fat burning muscle becomes easier, and the new muscle will then work to burn fat even when not exercising. Despite the acai berry can not do all the work for you, you can give your body an extra boost to make your workout more efficient.

Judge issues injunction against Acai Berry vendor to stop all operations

More than a year after the U.S. Attorney General issued a dollar fine 1.37 million U.S. dollars against Central Coast Nutraceuticals (CCN) for deceptive trade practices that do not have much effect, it seems that CCN finally closed. The Federal Trade Commission followed up and convinced a U.S. District judge to issue an injunction against NAC, which effectively stops all operations

After listening to consumer complaints for 2 years, the FTC has taken action again. Convinced a U.S. District Judge to issue an injunction against one of the largest companies behind the Acai Berry free trial scams, Central Coast Nutraceuticals (CCN), effectively stopping all Internet operations and freezing their bank accounts.

Its time! Yes, the FTC is a government bureaucracy, so it moves very slowly. They have been inundated with claims of tens of thousands of angry consumers now, with estimates of over one million victims of these scams. To be fair, they did a case a year ago against a Texas man who was a force behind these plans in the early days. Left the company and was fined a few thousand dollars – about what you pay a traffic ticket great!

This is the strange part of the big fuss being made over this single instance – U.S. Attorney General made a great uproar in June 2009 on a record fine against a distributor of acai berry. Guess who was? CCN! With hundreds of websites and dozens of companies that promote these scams all over the Internet, the FTC makes a big deal about a court decision to keep the same carrier as the U.S. Attorney General supposedly closed more than a year! Please forgive my cynical nature, but it sounds like the various government agencies are struggling to credit on the same case. Either that, or 1.37 million U.S. dollars last year but not convinced CCN stop. In which case, why did not the U.S. Attorney General make it last year?

Ok, enough with being cynical. Sounds like CCN finally closed. Hopefully the FTC maintains pressure and pursues the most to close the rest of the bastards.

If you are a victim of one of these scams acai berry and wish to complain and maybe get a ruling against the people behind it, please contact:
