Kimkins Scam Televised

You would have to be living under a rock somewhere to not know all the drama going on with the Kimkins saga. Things really came to a head last night when a LA TV station did an expose. Here's all the appropriate links to the story.

Private Investigator's Notes: The Surveillance of Southern California Diet Scammer Heidi Diaz of Kimkins

You can also find the PI surveillance video here.

This whole thing is so sad. As a former morbidly obese person, I know what it is to want to lose weight. I was even desperate enough to have myself "gut-whacked". To willingly subject yourself to literally starving yourself just to lose a few pounds boggles my mind.

Kimmer takes the cake though. She preys on those people desperate enough to lose weight they will subsist on just egg whites--300 cals/day--to do it. All the while, she sits a home in front of her computer, munching on cookies and what have you, morbidly obese herself. Then, she has the nerve to say that she is not Heidi Diaz.

Kimmer, here's hoping when you go to jail, they send you to the California Institution for Women right there in Corona. At least you will be close enough for your son to visit. I wouldn't count on it though. You'll go to a federal prison unfortunately. Because of the mail fraud and other federal charges.

Well I must say, from under me rock, I have not heard about this Scam/Story.... We are so far removed from the day to day happenings in America, we only hear the BIG stories down here in New Zealand. Would love to hear what happens with the Class Action Lawsuit against this woman. Keep us up to date eh? I get real mad when people prey on us bigger people, as if we don't have enough to stress over.

I read that this story was also on a national morning news show, but it didn't say which one. Does anyone know which show it was?
