Un-FREAKIN-believable! Surely there must be some sort of regulation in place to prevent this kind of thievery?

Although I have never used any of these types of products, I can see how desperate people could easily fall prey to the claims this company makes. This is obviously capitalism at its finest.

Carleen

Shoot! I actually came to tell you about an award and got so caught up in reading your post -- then getting pizzed -- that I completely forgot about it! Let me try this again:

OSM, an award is waiting for you on my blog. I hope that you will accept it!

fridawrites

Great post, OSM!

Lisa Moon

WOW, that is incredbily infuriating... and yes, how vile to prey on desperate people with various disorders/diseases who are willing to try any one last thing that might help.

I notice that the main ingredient is some bizarre alleged form of magnesium. Funny how it cures everything! And outrageous that they're actually outright declaring to CURE things!!!

Good investigative work, OSM! Looking forward to the next part...

Stavros

Just before I found your website, I had actually ordered some things from this company, and now I find that it is a con.
Does anyone have their actual address please, I know some people who will be interested in meeting them.

One Sick Mother

Carleen,

Sorry for the delay in responding. (I have been sick and distracted of late). Thank you for the award. it is very kind and very much appreciated. Now that I have finished depressing myself with OHS, I will try to enjoy it and my online friends a little more.

Frida, Thanks. :)

Lisa,
Thanks, Yes Magnesium Complex Ignorance is a known cure in all the best sarcastic circles... ;)


Stavros,

What information I found on addresses is in part III of this piece. I haven't found incorporation documents or anything else; but to be honest, I didn't search too hard.

Can you work through your credit card company to cancel the transaction? By law, they are not supposed to bill you until they ship product out, but somehow, I suspect these people don't pay much heed to the law.

Good luck.

Again, SMA is the number two birth defect and is a genetic condition, unless they have a pill that can rewrite DNA (something I think all people studying all diseases might be interested in...like CANCER?) - that is a joke, and Post polio? My blood started to boil.

First, there is no name on the paper, just a trademark sign. That paper is stolen in parts from Seung-Kyung Hann MD , Yoon-Kee Park MD and Woo Hyung Chun MD

Department of Dermatology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Who wrote an outline on Vitiligo for a dermatology scientific journal. It is lifted word for word; just take a line or two from the first few pages and google it. I imagine the whole thing is a cut and past job until the bogus 'research' or 'test' - No journal would accept plagerized material, and unless those MD's did the whole paper (they did not in the one published), then it is plagerism.

But great job exposing this.

And the claim to try to get money out of people with disease which have unknown causes like Guillain-Barre Syndrome and MS is common - as these are the people that other AB people tell to drink grass or eat ginsing or sleep facing east and sometimes you get desperate enough to try because there HAS to be a reason right. You don't have your brain expand and paralyze you in a DAY for no reason, right, right? But yes, that unfortunately is what happens and to prey of people who have had that happen is often the job of social workers, OT's, PT's or anyone else where getting the paycheck is the most important thing; instead of the patient - this however is like psychological harm and how it can be allowed is dispicable. If companies set up selling pills for kids going to inner city schools in Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Detroit and LA promising that if they took the PILLS they could go to Harvard - they would be accused of racial exploitation (and rightly so). I don't know what to say, my disgust fills me with silence. Thank you OSM.

Paddy Hegarty

Hi, Thanks for your article. I am 52 yrs old, healthy and active but I recently suffered retinal vein occlusion. I was about to order occlotab from oslo health solutions but wont be doing that now.Thought I had found something that would help,disappointed. Thanks again, Paddy Hegarty

Kathryn

Hi, just today I ordered a "tab" to get rid of my unslightly and painful ganglions - THEN I found this page - I went straight back to CCNOW and cancelled my order before it was dispatched - I think they are legit but, just in case, I also contacted my credit card company who said they should be able to help if it continues to go through. Disappointed but hopefully still in possession of my cash! Thanks

Mark

I have Kugelberg Welander Syndrome and was going to order Welnatab today but thanks to you, I will not be ripped off by this so called "company".

H. B. Lanie

This same conmpany claims that this same pill, same ingridients has a 90% success rate to help people suffering from Erythromelagia, a very rare and devestating disease. Except on their website this pill is called Meoltab - clinical trail study to be posted soon. Interesting - I was just about to order when I came across your article. Thanks.

Darrell

Thanks so much - I nearly ordered from them, thank goodness I found your site first. I can be so naive! I was feeling so hopeful just last night. Anyway should be able to shut the Australian subsidiary down fairly quickly I hope

One Sick Mother

Darrell,

Glad to be able to help.

I have been in touch with the Aussie authorities (although maybe not the *correct* Aussie authorities) several times about the Australian arm of the operation and they seem stunningly UNinterested: "we have made a note of your complaint"

Which is Bureaucrat for: "We plan to do exactly sod all. Now PFO"

But if you or anyone else wants to contact them and put a little pressure on from the inside (of Australia), that would be great! It might be harder for them to tell one of their own to PFO.

While doing research on enlarge tonsils I ran across this web site http://tonsotab.com/about_tab.html

This same company claims that it can cure enlarge tonsils.

The ingredients have change, but their claim is the same.

Thousands of patients have been successfully treated with Tonsotab over the past few years. Tonsotab is a completely outstanding product and there is absolutely no alternative to its unique formula. Had the effectiveness of Tonsotab not been proven beyond any doubt, it would not be possible for us to make such a bold claim.

The main ingredients of Tonsotab tablets are:

Berberis aristata D.C Ext.
Melia azadirachta Linn Seed
Raphanus satirus Linn
Melia azadirachta Bark
Red earth
Sulphur (purified)
Allium ascalonicum seed

The exact proportion of each ingredient has been deliberately kept secret to avoid imitations of our confidential formula.

Treatment with Tonsotab is very rapid obvious results can be noticed within one month of use. A complete course of treatment lasts two months.

Tonsotab is taken in an oral pill form and the normal dosage is two tablets twice a day, mornings and evenings. There are absolutely no side effects and the treatment is safe and sold over the counter.

Tonsotab comes for a fixed price of $79.99 for a two month supply and can be ordered from our website by clicking here. We do not charge any shipping price.

Treatment with Tonsotab is fully guaranteed. We are so confidant about the effectiveness of Tonsotab, that in the rare case you remain unsatisfied with the improvement in your condition, you may simply return the empty packaging along with the original receipt and claim a refund of the amount you paid us. Since all payments are made via credit card directly to CCNOW (our credit card processing company), your money is completely safe. CCNOW will ensure that we honor all claims for refund. The only condition is that you have to be persistent in your treatment with Tonsotab for one month (30 days). Skipping pills or being irregular will only delay the treatment.

Well, I should have first checked it out, but because I was given papers from Web MD I thought it was legitt. not the fault of the one who gave it to me, it was just her research into one of the conditions listed. and as the first part of this statement says, " It is easy when you have no problem to tell others to ignore it" but when you have one ... Yes,I sent off the money for a 100% money back gaurantee. I have already asked for a refund, I hope I get it, I can't aford to lose it and learn from it. It was a sacrifice but would have been worth it if it were true. We need to pray against these preyers.

Jimmie

Thanks for the information, I was ready to order some Sorbotabs for malabsorption until I tried to search for the missing clinical study and came across your website. These guys should seriously be shut down, but, of course 10 others would just sprout up in their place.

Steve Spence

Did you ever think that Oslo Health is a front for Al-Queda and they are gathering money illegally to fund their plots. That all this web facing is to draw people in to get their money and use it to extend their radical views? And bring down Christain nations?

Someone needs to alert the Attorney General about this.

Steve Spence

If you cannot get a resolution to this problem. Here is the website to file a complaint with the internet crimes division of the FBI.

I'm sure interpol will be interested

One Sick Mother


Steve,

Thanks for that information

OSM

Steve Spence

I received the pills,(after waiting a month) but I am now informed by this site, and I am not going to take them. There seems to be no real proof that they will not harm me. Thank you all for the information.

Steve Spence

Why would the pills be shipped from Lahore,Pakistan if the company is supposed to be based in Norway?

Garry Montgomery

They also offer spondotab - same ingredients, same fake "clinical research posted soon" and same fake money-back guarantee/ I'm sure CCNOW the payment company are aware of the fraud being perpetuated on the internet.
Can these carpet bsaggers be stopped?

Theresa DaSilva

I order the 240 Tablets Pack of Emutab on January 22, 2010 and you have taken my money of $79.99 but I have NEVER received the Emutabs. I have been trying for days to reach you with emails and etc. but not response. Please contact me at the email below or call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx. Thx. My name is Theresa DaSilva

One Sick Mother

Teresa,

I am not affiliated with Oslo Health Solutions or any of the other scammers I have outed here on OSM. I am quite insulted that anyone might think that. I  advocate for the victims of these scams, I have written these articles to expose illegal practices, not to indulge in them.

I cannot send you product  and I wouldnt even if I could because it would probably do you more harm. Nor can I refund your money, but I can point you to a link I wrote to help you there
http://onesickmother.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/09/getting-your-money-back.html

I removed your phone number from this site to protect your privacy.

I wish you the best of luck.

Lori

Thank you so much for this info. I was doing some research on the product "thyrotab" for thyroid nodules and I stumbled across your site. I will now still have a thyroid nodule, but I also still have my $79.99. :) Thank again so much!!!
