Infomercial impresario Kevin Trudeau has yet to pay a penny of his $37.6 million fine to the FTC for deceptive TV commercials pitching medical cures and get-rich-quick schemes. But that doesn’t mean he’s not interested in helping you be your best. Take the lengthy memos he sent appreciative staffers over the years on topics like Policy #4: Fresh organic fruit and vegetable juice: “I am not going to order you to drink juice but you should consider drinking juice.

It’s your option.”
