Explain Your Problem: (Please limit your complaint to 2000 characters.):I represent Short Persons Support. This complaint is about 31 companies who take advantage of young people who are desperate to be taller. These companies sell herbal supplements, lotions, instruction manuals, and devices that claim to help people grow, even if they are years or decades past puberty. Some claim growth of up to 4 inches. Fourteen of the companies are in the U.S. and four are in Canada, with the rest in other countries.

About 20 readers a month contact us to inquire if should trust any of these companies or to complain about how they have been cheated. Many others are spending hundreds of dollars and worse, pinning their hopes for their future, on products that can not work. Most of the companies offer money back guarantees. However, their victims find that calls and emails go unanswered when they ask for their money back.

A comprehensive list of companies and a description of the problem can be found at this site:

We believe that these companies should be investigated under Operation Cure.All. Would you please open up an investigation. We are also requesting that the FTC provide a specific warning about these products that we can pass on to our readers.

We are doing the best that we can to discourage them from wasting their money on these phony products. However, like some cancer patients, many would risk a lot of money for a solution that had even a small chance of succeeding.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you need any additional information. Thank you.
