WARNING LETTER
CMS # 115549
December 21, 2010
VIA OVERNIGHT MAIL
RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED
Mr. Jeffery R. Rose, President
Natural Zing, LLC
1851 Florence Road
Mount Airy, MD 21771
Dear Mr. Rose:

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted an inspection of your facility located at 1851 Florence Road, Mount Airy, MD, from April 27-29, 2010, and determined that your firm is a distributor, labeler, and relabeler of foods and dietary supplements and distributes these products in interstate commerce. During the inspection, our investigators collected samples of a number of products bearing the Natural Zing label. FDA collected additional samples of your products in July 2010. FDA also reviewed your website at www.naturalzing.com in December 2010 and has determined that this site is labeling within the meaning of section 201(m) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) [21 U.S.C. § 321(m)]. Based on our review of your product labels and website, we have determined that your Goji Berries, Mesquite Pod Meal, Milk Thistle Seed Powder, Rice Bran Solubles, Acai Powder, and Yacon Syrup products are in violation of the Act and regulations implementing the food labeling requirements of the Act, which are found in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 101 (21 CFR 101). You may find the Act and FDA regulations through links in FDA’s home page at www.fda.gov.

Unapproved New Drugs
FDA reviewed your website www.naturalzing.com in December 2010 and has determined that your Milk Thistle Seed Powder, Rice Bran Solubles, Acai Powder and Yacon Syrup products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs under section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(B)]. The therapeutic claims on your website establish that the products are drugs because they are intended for use in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease. The marketing of these products with these claims violates the Act.
Examples of some of the claims observed on your website include:
Milk Thistle Seed Powder (Raw, Organic) 8 oz webpage:
• “Virtually all parts of the plant have been used as both food and medicine at one time or another with no reports of toxicity.”
• “[A] remedy for snake bites. They [milk thistle seeds] are also used as a preventive-antidote to poisoning by death-cap mushroom.”

• “[M]ilk thistle is known for curing jaundice and other liver disorders.”

• “[M]ilk thistle also soothes and moistens the mucous membranes and skin, making it excellent for psoriasis.”
Tocotrienols (Rice Bran Solubles) 1 lb webpage:
• “Other studies indicate a possible role for tocotrienols in protecting against cancer (particularly breast and skin cancer).”
Acai Powder (Raw, Organic Fair-traded) 100 g webpage:
• “Experienced Benefits: Anti-Inflammatory; Antimutagenic; Anti-Bacterial . . .”
Yacon Syrup (Raw, Organic) 8 fl oz, webpage:

• ”[Y]acon . . . safeguards against colon cancer . . . .”

Your products are not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced uses and, therefore, the products are “new drugs” under section 201(p) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(p)]. New drugs may not be legally marketed in the U.S. without prior approval from FDA as described in section 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 355(a)]. FDA approves a new drug on the basis of scientific data submitted by a drug sponsor to demonstrate that the drug is safe and effective.
Unauthorized Nutrient Content Claims
Under section 403(r)(1)(A) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 343(r)(1)(A)], a claim that characterizes the level of a nutrient which is of the type required to be in the labeling of the food must be made in accordance with a regulation promulgated by the Secretary (and, by delegation, FDA) authorizing the use of such a claim. The use of a term not defined by regulation in food labeling to characterize the level of a nutrient misbrands a product under section 403(r)(1)(A) of the Act.
Nutrient content claims that use the defined terms “rich in,” “excellent source,” or “high,” (“superb source” is an unauthorized synonym for “excellent source”) may be used in the labeling of a food only if the food contains 20 percent or more of the daily value (DV) of that nutrient per reference amount customarily consumed (RACC) [21 CFR 101.54(b)(1)].  Such claims may not be made about a nutrient for which there is no established DV. The labels of your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries and Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal products bear the following claims that must meet the requirements set forth in 21 CFR 101.54(b)(1):
Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries:
• “[Superb source of vitamin A . . . .”
• “[R]ich source of . . . germanium.”
• “[R]ich source of . . . selenium . . . .”
Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal:
• “[R]ich in calcium . . . iron . . . .”
• “[R]ich in . . . lysine.”
• “[R]ich in . . . magnesium, potassium . . . zinc . . . .”
However, these claims are unauthorized nutrient content claims because they do not meet all of the requirements of 21 CFR 101.54(b)(1). Specifically, according to the product label, your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries product does not contain 20 percent or more of the DV of Vitamin A, and your Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal product does not contain 20 percent or more of the DV of calcium or iron. Further, a DV has not been established for germanium or lysine, so “rich” cannot be used to make a claim about these nutrients. Finally, your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries product label does not provide information about the amount of selenium in the product, and your Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal product label does not provide information about the amount of magnesium, potassium, or zinc in the product, which makes it impossible to determine whether these products contain a sufficient amount of the DV of these nutrients to make “rich” claims about the nutrients. Because the above nutrient content claims do not meet the requirements set forth in 21 CFR 101.54(b)(1), your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries and Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal products are misbranded under section 403(r)(1)(A) of the Act.
Your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries product is further misbranded within the meaning of section 403(r)(1)(A) of the Act because the product label bears a “more” nutrient content claim that is not authorized by regulation. The label of your Authentic Tibetan Goji Berries product bears the following claim: “[M]ore beta carotene than carrots.” FDA has defined the nutrient content claim “more” and its authorized synonyms in 21 CFR 101.54(e).  “More” nutrient content claims may be used on the label or in the labeling of foods to describe the level of nutrients, provided that (1) the food contains at least 10 percent more of the DV for the nutrient per RACC than an appropriate reference food; (2) where the claim is based on nutrients that are added to the food, that the fortification is in accordance with the policy on fortification of foods in 21 CFR 104.20; and (3) the claim bears the required information for relative claims as described in 21 CFR 101.13(j)(2) and 101.54(e)(1)(iii). Beta carotene is a form of Vitamin A. The nutrition facts panel for this product declares the amount of vitamin A as 2% of the DV. Carrots contain approximately 280% of the DV per RACC. Because the label of this product does not indicate that the product contains at least 10 percent more of the DV of Vitamin A per RACC than the reference food, carrots, this claim does not meet the requirements for a “more” claim and misbrands the product.
Other Food Labeling Violations
Your Milk Thistle Seed Powder and Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal products are misbranded under section 403(q)(1) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 343(q)(1)] because their labels fail to declare the nutrition facts information in accordance with 21 CFR 101.9. Specifically, your Milk Thistle Seed Powder product label fails to declare any nutrition facts information as required by 21 CFR 101.9, and your Wildcrafted Mesquite Pod Meal product label fails to declare trans fat on the nutrition facts information panel as required by 21 CFR 101.9(c)(2)(ii).
Your Milk Thistle Seed Powder product is further misbranded under section 403(e)(1) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 343(e)(1)] in that the label does not properly declare the statement of your place of business as required by 21 CFR 101.5(d).
The above violations are not meant to be an all-inclusive list of deficiencies in your products and their labeling. It is your responsibility to ensure that all products marked by your firm comply with the Act and its implementing regulations. You should take prompt action to correct these violations. Failure to promptly correct these violations may result in regulatory action, including seizure and/or injunction, without further notice.
Please respond in writing within fifteen (15) working days from your receipt of this letter. Your response should outline the specific things you are doing to correct these violations. You should include in your response documentation such as copies of the new labels for the products that your firm manufactures and distributes, or other useful information that would assist us in evaluating your corrections.  If you cannot complete all corrections before you respond, you should explain the reason for your delay and state when you will correct any remaining violations.
Please send your reply to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Attention: Anne Aberdeen, Compliance Officer, 6000 Metro Drive, Suite 101, Baltimore, MD 21215. If you have questions regarding any issues in this letter, please contact Ms. Aberdeen at (410) 779-5134.

treasuretrooper.com aka wozo.com

http://www.WOZO.com Charged my bank account with

out permission.

http://www.WOZO.com
Internet
United States of America
Web Address: http://www.wozo.com

I signed up with http://www.wozo.com through treasuretrooper.com

because I was given the option of completing an offer of receiving $8.00 for signing up with wozo for $2.99. Not only did they not authorize treasuretrooper to credit my account, they charged my account 4 days later so I ended up paying $36 something dollars for nothing. I had to delete my bank account so that this company would not charge my account furthermore. I spoke with a manager who was very uneducated and rude telling me there was nothing he can do. Its a big scam, they sent me the two posters I supposedly bought, you could buy these same posters at walmart for $3.99 each. They are trying to scam people, stay away


IT is a scam. The mods on the forums and in the help sections tell you all these great ways to make money, and then when you have questions about it on the forums, your question is removed or locked. Why? Because everything has to be all “happy bunnies and rainbows” there. You’re not allowed to speak your mind about anything in fear of being banned from TT by the mods. You’re not allowed to speak of pending offers, and if you do everything right, and it doesn’t approve, they sternly tell you “you did something wrong.”

Then they insist that you get referrals, so that more people will join in on the fun, and you get a bonus from if/when they make anything. TT gives you a number of tips to do so, and if you’re lucky, you can get one or two active referrals.

Their VIP CLub is another scam where you*have* to make over $50 a month, and a portion of it being from referrals. So if you have no active referrals, you don’t get all the fun bonuses every month, and you are told to “try harder”.

Stay away from THEM, or better yet, contact the BBB to have them shut down.

First you pay a tiny amount for info and it slowly builds to greater amounts. M1 costs nearly two grand BUT they GUARANTEE everything is refundable 100%. M2 costs nearly ten grand, but again it is all refundable if you want out they pay you out and the sales person does not even get docked said Kip; because nobody EVER asks for money back. I invested twelve grand and soon found it to be based on quasi New Age religious mumbo jumbo. That turned me right off and nothing they said worked. I spent hundreds more even thousands, on applying the methods and yet never earned a single cent; not one!

So I decided to cut my losses and asked for my money to be refunded as promised. That’s when I realized just how corrupt and deceitful this company is. They have hoops to jump through without limit; just like the Discover Card adverts mock on TV. It has been three full months now and despite jumping through EVERY hoop, I still have not yet received a single cent in refund!


The guys who promote this dubious program are Jay Kubassek and Mike Dillard. Two average looking idiots who think too much of themselves. They sell a useless video of themselves for a whopping $199 which most “applicants” pay for after paying an “application fee” of $49. The application fee is supposed to separate the “ones serious about starting a business” from the others.

In the first 10 min of the video, Gay Kubassek asks you to ignore your family and friends – who are a negative influence on your life, and people like me who complain about their excellent system on blogs and websites online. In simple english, these bastards are brain-washing the brain-washable.

The kicker – CCPro is a marketing system for Wealth Masters International. WMI is run by an ex-coal miner and a con. The con is Kip Herriage – who upposedly worked for Oppenheimer. You are supposed to be impressed that he has six licenses and degrees. Count on me to NEVER ever BUY investment advice from a guy who calls himself KIP. Anyway, WMI is a THREE level scam that charges yopu between $2000 for “level 1” to $9999 for “level 2” to $16,999 for “level 3”. If anyone spends this kind of money on investment advice that is useless [much better advice can be garnered by reading books by Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham – that are available for free in your local library].

Bottom-line: Do NOT spend a dime on these scammers. Get their names: Gay – sorry Jay Kubassek, Kip Herriage, Mike Dillard. Their company names are Carbon Copy PRO, Carbon Copy and Wealth Masters International. ALL USELESS and RIPOFFS

ROR: Thanks for this website. It is a life-saver for people who know about its existence. I was about to spend a day on Armando Montelongo. Needless to say, I won’t after looking at this website.

God save the Rip Off Report.

SUCCESS IS A DECISION” – Wealth Masters International

“Success is a decision, if you do not make a decision today, nothing will
change tomorrow. Once I realized 2 years ago that this statement was true, I made a decision to have everything I ever wanted. I realized that in order to accomplish this I had to own my own business. My previous background was in Law Enforcement. I was working for the Government and as a Police Officer at the same time, 70-80+ hours a week. With the stress, the commute and not being able to see my kids and wife, something had to change. I found this industry in
October 2004 and made the decision to be successful. Within…

Kip Herriage and Karl Bessey are the visionaries behind Wealth Masters International. Kip spent 15 years on Wall Street and quickly rose to the top of one of the world’s most powerful investment firms.

As a manager of millions in assets for high-net-worth individuals, Kip soon realized that the behind-the-scenes reality of money is dramatically different from what most of the working public is led to believe.

Karl came from a blue-collar background emerging from 22 years in the
underground coal mines in Utah and later becoming an international top producer and award winning marketer in some of the world’s most successful direct sales companies. These divergent paths led both men to a “wake-up call” that challenged their assumptions about success. Today, as best friends and business partners, their shared vision has been to create an educational system and a business model that makes a life of abundance available to everyone willing to invest in themselves and apply Wealth Masters principles.

Do you enjoy working at home on your computer and only taking inbound calls for products that people actually need?

Would you like earn over $5,000 by Valentine’s Day and $10,000 to $20,000 per month afterward?

If your answer is “Yes” then . . . Welcome to your new home!

We utilize the most powerful lead system on the market today to extract fresh, targeted leads in any category that businesses are clamoring for.

What we are looking for in a candidate:

-> A career minded individual who is fed up with job hopping and is looking to build a future with a stable firm of high integrity.
-> Sales experience especially in phone sales. We use a consultative sales approach when dealing with clients, not high pressure.
-> A mindset that focuses on building client relationships, not just closing sales. Strong client relationships generate reorders.
-> A strong desire to earn over $10,000 in the next 30 days (and yes, $10,000 in the next 30 days is definitely realistic with our firm!)
-> A willingness to learn and follow a proven system. Rebels need not apply.
-> A person who owns their own computer that has internet access and knows how to use it. Using computers at libraries is NOT acceptable.
-> A PERSON WHO IS ABLE TO START IMMEDIATELY! If you cannot start right away please do not call our office as it would be a waste of your time and ours.

We Offer:

-> A position that involves ABSOLUTELY NO COLD CALLING EVER!!! All transactions begin with the client contacting you.
-> An opportunity to work from home and start getting paid in the next 7 days and continue to get paid afterward on a daily basis by direct deposit.
-> A realistic earning potential of $1,000 to $3,500 in the first 1 to 2 weeks, over $10,000 in the next 30 days and $15,000 to $25,000 per month within 6 months.
-> A lucrative commission plan. 1 sale per day pays you $300 per day or $1,800 per week – 2 sales per day pays you $600 per day or $3,600 per week.
-> A position where your earnings grow each month as you get paid the full commission from clients that reorder business leads over and over again.
-> A stable long term career position made possible by selling a quality product. People working for us never have to worry about layoffs as businesses always need leads.
-> A opportunity to be involved with a firm of high integrity. We NEVER resell our business leads over and over again like our competitors do.
-> An opportunity to train new associates and also get paid daily for doing so.
-> Completely flexible hours – you can begin working part time and, as your earnings increase, quickly transition into full time.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS INFORMATION: This position absolutely requires that the candidate own their own computer, be fully computer literate, have good communication skills and sales experience. If you have limited knowledge of how to use a computer, cannot communicate well or have little or no sales experience, then this position is definitely NOT for you. We ask that when you call our office, please be near an operating computer that has access to the internet for the online interview and do not use any air card, speakerphones, Magic Jacks, or Bluetooth devices as these devices often make communicating with the interviewer slow and difficult. Because of the current high levels of unemployment, we are experiencing very high call volume so we ask that you be patient and let the phone ring until an associate answers. If you have difficulty getting through, please leave your name, number, and a brief message and we will get back to you!

If being in control of your income and working when you want to (not when you are told to) is your goal and YOU ARE ABLE TO START IMMEDIATELY then call our office today at 813-233-6913 for a personal online interview. Serious inquiries only please. If we do not answer, please leave a message and we will call you back!

Thank You!
