    Can you get banned from Hub pages pretending to be a doctor so people will buy from you?

    I saw this and was pretty mad. I don't care that people try to make money, that's great for them and one day I hope to make money as well but not this way. This person is trying to sucker people in due to a medical condition and then people think the doctor recommends this book so It must be worth buying. To me, that is soooo wrong. What do you think? There's also something else quite disturbing about what they are doing but I'm not going to say here. So, with pretending to be a doctor to sell products would that be a potential banning issue?

    I don't know, but I wouldn't try it. I think that falls under being unethical.

    You can review products without trying them, as you thoroughly research the product before you write. If you have tried a product and want to say how great it is then announce to the world how happy you are, and make a bit of money on the side.

    However what you cant do, is to claim that you are professionally qualified to endorse a product. That is illegal, it is obtaining money by false pretences. Not sure what the exact US felony would be, I expect there would be a few broken.

    However, if you are a doctor, and you have your own product, or an interest in a product, then it is perfectly acceptable to endorse it. If two drugs have the same effect, the one which comes with a free holiday in the Cayman Islands is naturally a better choice for patients.

    If you have reason to believe that some one is claiming to be a doctor flag it.

    If it is legit, no harm done.
