PHOENIX - Authorities have shut down a local company and seized $30 million of its assets for allegedly selling bogus penile enlargement pills over the Internet, state officials said on Wednesday.


C.P. Direct, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, was put out of business and its Web sites closed following complaints about the company and its product that promised results within months of taking its supposedly potent yet costly ``Longitude'' pill, officials said.

Among the items seized were luxury cars, including a Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Ferrari and Bentley, $20 million in bank accounts, $3 million in cash and a bounty of luxury jewelry, according to a list of the items.

Company officials could not be reached for comment.

The initial cost of the pills was $59.99, plus shipping and handling for a month's supply and $39.99 a month thereafter. Records showed the pills cost $2.50 per bottle to manufacture.

The company also allegedly sold pills that supposedly guaranteed height increases and bigger breasts, officials said.

``It's going to take time to find out how many people bought the pills ,'' said Pati Urias, a state Attorney General's spokeswoman. ``It appears they did quite a bit of volume.''

Named in the civil forfeiture action was Michael A. Consoli, 44, and his mother, Geraldine Consoli, 76, and Vincent J. Passafiume, 28.

The three were warned by the state in 1996 about fraudulent practices when they operated a business that sold computers and other electronic equipment. In 1999, the Consolis and Passafiume were barred from doing business in Arizona through the mail, Internet or using other telecommunication devices.

I (stupidly) bought a bottle for 60 bucks and didnt ask to be put on the automatic mailing list. Guess what, they put me on it anyway and I was charged for 2 MORE bottles until my checking account was overdrawn and I was fined 30 bucks. At least it put an end to the shipments. Fucking assholes, at least they lost all their money.

This is a huge victory for not only the consumers who have gotten played but for the entire natural penis enlargement movement. Society has a tendency to throw out the baby with the bathwater and MoS is not beyond this happening. It is so important for the world to understand we are not the same as the pill, patch and creme whores trying to rip poor guys off. We are all about honest exercise for honest gains. These forums are the salvation for so many and it will only be truly realized when the world knows the truth. This is a big step.


If you want to understand what my part in this is please read this letter: Penis EnlargementNIS ENLARGEMENT IS SPAM BULLSHIT I sent this letter to millions of people in hopes to salvage the reputation all of us worked so hard to attain.

damn... that sounds like a great way to make money... only you gotta get out before you get caught. People get too greedy. I would've been happy with a couple million.

Who the fuck produced the supplement for so fucking cheap? Anyone know their number? $2.50 a bottle?!! That's a fat fucking profit, man! Jesus Christ!!

If everybody put pen to paper and complained about the rest of these rip-off merchants, this could really turn up the heat on these people! The amount of times I have gotten a desired result, with a well written letter! "The pen is mightier then the sword" But action needs to take place now, and strike while the iron is hot!!!!!

I think you're all missing the greater good behind this... By scam artists the likes of Longitude being shut down, it will reaffirm to the general public that penis enlargement isn't possible. That is great news to us, as we all know that it is very much possible. That means there won't likely be an huge influx of new NPenis Enlargement'ers in the near future....and I'm thankful for that. I'm very, very selfish when it comes to Penis Enlargement'ing, and I would like as few people as possible to know about it.

Didnt this happen like over a year ago? I think I remember seeing this posted on another forum about a yearish ago. Anyway, it is good that ONE company that was scamming mainly men has been shut down. As far as the mark-up of the product...that happens everywhere. It's called capitalism. LOL. Most of the time, things cost much less to actually produce than what they sell for. Supply vs. demand. It costs me $4 to make my widget and you want it really bad because it will help improve whatever area of your life....I have a right to ask whatever $ amount I see fit. How strong your desire is to own my widget will of course determine whether or not you decide to buy it from me.

Im glad Penis Enlargement works though.

Glad to see them shut down too. There are many others that walk the fine line and have you exercise along with taking the pills . This is probably the only savings grace they have to the claims of growth. It's just too bad that most of the people sucked into these scams don't know that exercise creates the wanted growth, not the pills . Best case senario, the purchaser gets an organic sexual stimulant. I like many others fell prey to the pill scam, it was ProSolution. While I can't say it didn't help with size or not, it did wonders for my sex drive and increased volume. If they brought the price down to say $25.00 per bottle I would buy them for that reason alone.

A doctor friend of mine that is very open to nutritional supplements told me that there are some benefits to some of these pills , but that size really isn't one of them.
