CEO Of Genesis Pure Lindsey Duncan Charged With Fraud
On October 15, 2014 Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott charged Austin resident Robert Lindsey Duncan the CEO Of Genesis Pure with unlawfully referring to himself as a naturopathic doctor in order to market and sell various nutritional products. Appearing on numerous nationally-broadcast television programs to promote vitamins, herbs and related health products, Lindsey Duncan falsely refers to himself as “Dr. Duncan,” “Doctor” or “ND” – despite not having the legal authority to make such representations.
According to court documents filed by the State of Texas, the defendant claims to have a “doctorate” degree in naturopathy from the now-closed Clayton College of Natural Health. Clayton College – an unaccredited, distance-learning natural health college that was based in Birmingham, Ala. – is specifically named on a list posted by The Higher Education Coordination Board of “Institutions Whose Degrees Are Illegal to Use in Texas.” The State’s legal action charged that Duncan’s alleged “doctorate” degree – awarded by a so-called college that was not properly accredited in Texas or any other state during its existence – is not recognized under Texas law, making his continued references to himself as a “doctor” false, misleading and deceptive.
The State’s investigation also found that Duncan falsely presents himself as a health practitioner in media interviews, television show appearances, presentations, and video promotions by donning lab coats and making references to clinical experience and practice – deceptive conduct that intentionally misleads viewers into believing that he is disseminating health advice and knowledge about the nutritional products he is promoting and in which he has a financial interest. – Source Texasattorneygeneral.gov
