Ladd McNamara Must Have Seen an Attorney


Ladd McNamara MD Usana FraudFinally, Ladd McNamara is living in reality. For quite some time, this Usana supporter, high level distributor, and former member of the Usana Medical Advisory Board has been illegally referring to himself as a doctor and an M.D.

Illegally? Well that’s according to the California rules, and McNamara lives in California. He has no medical license in California (or anywhere else, for that matter, since Ohio and Georgia don’t let him practice medicine either) and according to an article in the National Business Review he’s not allowed to say he’s a doctor: Continue reading

Another Usana Representative With Falsified Credentials


Unlicensed Dr. Ladd R McNamara - UsanaYou’d think that management at Usana Health Sciences would be careful about these things, wouldn’t you? Nope. They’re Usana. They don’t have to. They’re Usana, after all.

Credit Barry Minkow with uncovering another fraud being committed by Usana.

After Barry and Fraud Discovery Institute revealed that Ladd McNamara, a member of Usana’s “Medical Advisory Board” did not have a license to practice medicine, Usana went to work. You see, Ladd McNamara was calling himself a doctor, when he was not licensed and not allowed to do so. He lost his medical license in Ohio and in Georgia. He now lives in California, and a representative of the State Medical Board of California made it clear that he is not allowed to refer to himself as a doctor. From the National Business Review: Continue reading

Ladd McNamara Still Referring to Himself as “Dr.” and “M.D.” After Fraud Discovery Institute Reveals He Has No License to Practice Medicine


Ladd R McNamara M.D. - Unlicensed Doctor UsanaLadd McNamara apparently has no regard for the rules of agencies that license physicians. Yesterday he opened a brand new blog, which he titles “Dr. Ladd McNamara’s Blog.”

Too bad that on May 31, 2007, Barry Minkow and Fraud Discovery Institute released a report indicating that Mr. McNamara does not have a license to practice medicine. He was forced to give up his license in Ohio after the licensing agency found he did not tell them (as required) that he had given up his license in Georgia. He lost two licenses, and has never been licensed in California, where he currently lives.

A few days after the report which revealed Mr. McNamara is not really a doctor, he resigned from the medical advisory board of Usana Health Sciences.

Adding insult to injury, this blog which indicates Mr. McNamara is a “Dr.” and an “M.D.” comes only two days after National Business Review publishes an article stating that Mr. McNamara admitted to having no medical license: Continue reading

Reporter Finds That Usana Health Sciences is Under Investigation by the FBI


Usana Health Sciences is throwing its latest temper tantrum at being exposed for the fraud it is. National Business Review reporter Helen Malmgren reported a few weeks ago on the Usana scam. Usana has replied with a letter that is little more than another “Barry Minkow lies” tale, with nothing of substance behind it.

Malmgren has summarily sliced and diced this ridiculous letter and it will be interesting to see how Usana does with this one. They haven’t done so well before. Please note that Malmgren is now reporting from an Federal Bureau of Investigation source that Usana is under investigation by the FBI. Continue reading

And in the other corner, we have Usana. Continue reading
