"The Nigerian government needs your help!" "Make $30,000 a month posting links online!" "Illegally Thin: lose a pound of fat per day with dinitrophenol!" I hate it when scammers take advantage of naive, uninformed, or desperate people.

Con men â€" much like the author of "Illegally Thin" â€" play off of people's fears and fool them out of their money.

When one person deceives another for personal gain, the courts call it "fraud." In general, you should avoid any person that asks you to pay for "secret information." But that's exactly what the book "Illegally Thin" says you should do.

The Illegally Thin website promises "the true story behind the perfect fat reduction drug," but neglects to say the drug's name.

Isn't that odd? For just $19.95, the author (who hides behind a pseudonym) will share his secrets.

Well, save your money.

The drug is called "dinitrophenol," and you can find a great deal of free information about it online (first link on the left).

A few minutes of reading about dinitrophenol (DNP) will show you why it's banned by the U.S.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) â€" because it causes cataracts, high fevers, and can kill you.

The Illegally Thin website promises incredible DNP weight loss â€" "a pound of fat per day" â€" and spouts off a bunch of anti-government rhetoric.

I support this guy's right to voice his anti-FDA opinions, but I do have a problem with him selling "secret" dinitrophenol weight-loss information that's free online.

There's a term for people who engage in health fraud: "quackery." When people (like the author of Illegally Thin) say they have "secret" health information â€" that's available for a price â€" they are trying to cheat you.

All my research says that dinitrophenol is dangerous and could hurt you.

Do your own research and don't pay for someone's opinion.

Think for yourself.

One of the frequently asked questions on the Illegally Thin website asks, "Does the author have a medical degree?" The answer: "No.

But he is smarter than any doctor your [sic] likely to meet." I seriously doubt it.
