By Al Sunshine, SouthFloridaReporter.com, Consumer Investigator, Aug 14, 2015 – Scam Skin Cancer “App” Busted by Feds: if you bought a melanoma detection app for your iPhone or Android Phone, the maker just got busted by the FTC.
“Mole Detective” may have worked well to get you to pay for it, but the Feds say its’ claims to help track and detect melanoma are unproven. According to the FTC ““We haven’t found any scientific evidence that Mole Detective can accurately assess melanoma risk,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “If you’re concerned that a mole may be cancerous, please see a health professional.”
The maker’s been hit with a $58,000 fine, but doesn’t have the funds to pay it.
