Hair Loss Treatment
Investigate Hair Loss Products
Before you spend money on any hair loss cure,
you should investigate both the pros and cons of any hair
loss treatment product or method. This makes the internet
your likely source of information. However, the internet
is not like the computer on the Starship Enterprise which
spits out all the right answers. As huge and global as the
internet has become, it does not necessarily contain all
the information necessary to make an informed decision.
You may have to contact the BBB or Chamber of Commerce
or State Attorney General's office for more company
information on the product you are interested in.
Below, you will find links to articles and forums
reporting on specific products that were either
formally declared as a fraudulent company by the government
or has been declared so by users of a specific product.
These reports will give you tips and feedback on
what to look out for.
Below this list of articles and links is information on how
you can report scam products to the appropiate authorities.
And finally, we have included a section on how you can conduct
productive searches for information about hair loss products
that might possibly be scams or are being targeted for deceptive
practices by the FDA or the FTC.
