In the conclusion to the FTC’s follow-up action against Kevin Trudeau for making deceptive claims about his books, a federal judge has ordered Trudeau to pay more than $37 million for violating a 2004 stipulated order by misrepresenting the content of his book, “The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Don’t Want You to Know About.”

We originally reported on the FTC action in a post in September of 2007.  At that time we noted that if successful, this will be the second contempt order entered against Trudeau.

Well, it’s official.  Contempt order two has been entered and Trudeau has been ordered to repay the victims of his scams to the tune of $37 million.

Trudeau has had several run-ins with the FTC, as detailed in the case filings archived at the FTC website.  To access the entire FTC v. Trudeau case file, click here.
