Customer Question

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am a freelance reporter who recently completed a book about the harms of the medications used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD). I have uncovered the way major psychiatric organizations as well as individual psychiatrists lie and distort the truth, robbing patients of their right to informed consent when deciding to get on ADHD drugs. I have not personally been hurt by these fraudulent practices, but am wondering if I can still sue the fraudulent parties involved. Or is it possible for me to ask the fraud victims who read my book to contact one of you, and if I refer enough people, a class action suit can be started... Does any of you have suggestions?
Thanks a lot,
Ashley Theobald
