Brighton Park Neighborhood Council Launches Illinois Herbalife Victim ID Program

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

With dozens of victims coming forward to share their stories of how they fell for Herbalife Inc.’s predatory pyramid scheme, the Brighton Park Neighborhood Council (BPNC) has joined other community and consumer groups to identify victims and help them to seek remedy through the office of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

Earlier this year, Attorney General Madigan confirmed that the Consumer Fraud Division had launched an investigation into Herbalife, Inc.’s business practices after receiving scores of complaints from Illinois residents. The nutritional supplement company is currently the target of probes by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the New York Attorney General’s Office.

To raise awareness of the allegations against Herbalife, BPNC is meeting with members of the community to alert residents of the signs of a pyramid scheme and assist those who feel have been deceived and want to share their story. Illinois victims of Herbalife can contact BPNC directly or call toll-free at (855) 701-5437 to share their story and seek assistance in filing a complaint against Herbalife.
