Naftula Jacobowitz, the owner/operator of Cure Encapsulations, “paid a website to create and post Amazon reviews of their product,” according to the FTC.

The FDA issued a notice about a product containing the active ingredient, which is why most purveyors of junk diet pills tend to make their efficacy claims vague.
