Inbox Chicago, IL— In an effort to raise public awareness about the predatory practices of multi-level marketing nutrition company Herbalife, dozens of Illinoisans will share on camera how they were exploited by a business built on false promises of financial success and good health.

Faces of Fraud: The Real Victims of Herbalife is a grassroots initiative supported by local business, faith-based, and community-based organizations across the state that are particularly concerned with Herbalife’s focus on recruiting members of low-income Hispanic and Latino communities into the scheme.
