This is to inform you about an ongoing criminal enterprise in operation for more than 15 years. Alive and Well Health Emporium on Maui violates federal anti-fraud and food-and-drug laws every day. It also illegally accepts food stamps (via EBT) as payment for supplements, herbal drugs, homeopathic products and assorted snake oils.
The owners, Dennis and Mona Jones, broadcast a weekly hour-long radio infomercial in which they claim that their products can cure every disease under the sun, including advanced cancers and HIV/AIDS. They also rant against all vaccines and urge listeners not to get their kids vaccinated. Instead, they say, listeners should buy their products that can prevent all the common childhood diseases.
The Joneses have no credentials in any health-related fields, but present themselves as nutrition- and alternative-medicine experts. In “personal health consultations” they practice medicine by telling people what is really wrong with them and what supplements, herbal drugs and homeopathic products they need. They often talk people into buying hundreds of dollars’ worth of these products.
They also talk people out of taking drugs prescribed by MDs – antibiotics, statins, anti-seizure medications, hypertension medications, etc – and into taking their products instead.
These racketeers are a hazard to the community, but the state authorities refuse to take action against them, probably because they pay taxes and employ 10-20 people.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this important matter. Please mail the enclosed postcard to me.
