I’ll admit it right now, Kevin Trudeau got me, too.

I almost bought this book. Yup.

Have you ever fallen for one of his infomercial scams? He peddles hope to the masses. And I’ll be damned if I didn’t once really want to buy one of his books. I was convinced he was sincere and there were truly natural cure that “they” didn’t want me to know about. After all, conspiracies happen! I’ve read The Da Vinci Code, I know how it goes! Except… tonight on ABC’s The Lookout, I realized that I’d been nearly swindled by a pro.

In fact, the man on the TV who I thought was entirely legitimate and wholesome is apparently anything but. An ex-con, someone sued for fraud and owes the government millions? That’s Trudeau.

Essentially, The Lookout reported that Trudeau is nothing that he makes himself out to be.

Have you ever bought into his shtick?  Did you waste money on one of his books? Or do you genuinely believe one of is books has really helped you? Let us know in the comments.
