    How can someone be "robbed" by viewing an online advert, which is basically the same as a roadside billboard?

    Wait. That can only be misinformation if it contradicts proven facts about aliens and the afterlife. What are those facts, exactly? Jul 28 at 18:30

Assuming the USA, since that's where they appear to be located.

Spreading misinformation is not illegal- it is protected by the first amendment. There are exceptions but I can't see how any would apply here. You haven't mentioned any that you think apply.

If some of the videos on the site guaranteed results or made medical claims, maybe that could be considered false advertising. However, I see no evidence of this. Users are advertised that paying for access to a bunch of hocum videos will get them access to a bunch of snake oil and this appears to be the case.

  • False advertisement or fraud, but not robbery.
