Breaking news from The Consumerist:
Steve Warshak, the founder of the company that makes (made?) Enzyte, a male enhancement “drug”, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison and fined $93,000. Additionally, Warshak’s company has been ordered to refund $500 million to consumers ripped off by the company.
Everyone I know assumed that the product didn’t work. After all, if it did, they’d be selling it at every convenience store and pharmacy in the United States. The thing is, Warshak knew it didn’t work from the very beginning. It was an out and out scam, and Warshak and company made it as difficult as possible to get a refund. According to a former VP that testified against Warshak, the company would go so far as to require notarized documents from a doctor proving that the customer had small genitals in order to get a refund; knowing that few men would willingly go to a doctor and ask them to sign a note saying they had a small penis, the company was able to bilk millions of men out of millions of dollars.
It’s too bad Enzyte doesn’t work. Steve will need it where he’s going!
