Thanks to Kimkins Circus for this info:

Fraud Report Site

Very, almost TOO, perfectly, I found a website where you can report diet scams. It is called Quackwatch.org, and has a duck with a magnifying glass as a logo.

It has a fraud report page here.

Information needed is:-



To Report an Online Fraud or Suspected Fraud

Send us the URL
  • Add any additional information you have about the company.
  • If you have special knowledge to share with a reporter or regulatory official, please indicate that and include complete contact information.

To Report a Personal Experience

  • Include your name, age, address, work and home telephone numbers.
  • Provide a detailed account of what happened to you that includes:
    • Dates or approximate dates that the events occurred
    • Name and location of perpetrator
    • Pertinent health history, including problem for which you sought help
  • What would you like us to do with the information?
    • Post your story to one of our sites. That usually requires inclusion of your name.
    • Forward your story to a regulatory agency
    • Try to help you recover money
    • Help you file a lawsuit
    • Give your name to a reporter who might want to interview you



There is a link at the bottom of that page - Fighting Quackery: Tips for Activists which also looks useful.
