2018 Scammie Awards
The award is given for the most outrageous pseudo-scientific claims of the previous year. The “winners” of this year’s Scammies show how important it is for people to watch out for dangerous products, fraudulent services, exploitation and all other instances when people prey on others using lies and baseless claims.
There is no cash value for receiving a prize, but CFIC hopes that the Scammies remind people that just because someone claims something is true, it doesn’t mean that it is. Make your new year’s resolution to fact check any claim made in the media, online or through “testimonials”.
All of us at CFIC wish you and yours a happy, healthy and scam-free new year!
