My wife received a mailing from The Healthy-Weight centers

Resolved Question:

My wife received a mailing from The Healthy-Weight centers of America, claiming to have a patch that will produce weight loss of two pounds per day up to 100lbs. They claim a 100% success rate and guarantee all money back if not satisfied, no questions asked. Is it at all possible this could be true?

Hello,

This is a scam. It is not healthy to lose 2 pounds per day.
Do not waste your money.
Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week.
Any person who lost 2 pounds per day would become very sick.
Plus, it does not work.

Here is a link to the complaints regarding the patch and the doctor behind the patch.
