    CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) -- The maker of dietary supplements that claim to improve everything from sexuality to memory defrauded thousands of customers and banks of at least $100 million, federal authorities say.

    A federal indictment names Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals, its owner and president, Steven Warshak, and five other individuals, including Warshak's mother, on charges that include conspiracy, money laundering, and mail, wire and bank fraud.

    They are accused by federal authorities of luring customers with free-trial offers and money-back guarantees, then billing their credit cards without authorization.

    Warshak, who has 107 counts against him, denies the accusations and will continue to operate the company, his attorney said Thursday.

    The company, which recently said it has 5 million customers worldwide, is known for its "Smiling Bob" ads that depict a man whose life gets better after he uses the company's Enzyte for "natural male enhancement."

    They need to do something with Bob's wife. If mine were that atrocious looking, I'd also need something, anything, hell even a placebo, for my penis.

    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

    The beauty of how artfully those ads were worded and shot is that everyone THINKS Enzyte was supposed to give you a bigger member, but it actually was some sort of vitamin/pep pill thing that "enhanced" your energy. Of course, the ads also never told you that, like "Girls Gone Wild," once you bought your first batch, they kept sending them and billing you automatically, and even AOL was shocked at how hard, ahem, it was to get out of the deal.

    So I'm told.

    Like all of our Mama's told us:

    "If it's too good to be true, it probably is."

    This is Bob. He no longer has to wear that fucking smile, or listen to that horrible whistling music.
