    From 2013, an FBI notice about a CFS physician and her clinic-CEO husband (Carol Ann Ryser and Michael Earl Ryser) who were arrested on various counts of fraud. Ryser seems to have been mentioned just a couple of times on PR.

    I thought the following language was interesting though (and further below also)...

    And an FBI mention of CFS in 2001 in a different incident:
    What other words could fit in this sentence?? :)

    ___________ claimed that ___________ was ... effective in the treatment of...chronic fatigue syndrome...

    @worldbackwards I'm sorry I don't know who this is (but I can of course look around). I tried to search for other info before I posted, but if I've posted something insensitive, maybe a moderator could remove the entire post? Or I'm happy to edit out anything that's inappropriate. I don't want to be disrespectful to anyone.

    [EDIT] Okay. Myhill seems to be a doctor.* I'm afraid I don't know anything about her / her history. I understand that good doctors are unjustly targeted. I understand too though that there are bad doctors who take advantage of desperate people.

    No offence at all.:)

    Sarah Myhill is a UK doctor who was brought up in front of the GMC for malpractice for offering treatments like B12 injections to help people with ME. Worth mentioning that Dr. Myhill was cleared in the end without a case to answer. The last sentence certainly reminded me of how medical pressure was brought to bare against her.

    Were you not saying that this could easily be used against genuinely useful ME doctors using scientifically unproven treatments? That's what I took from it anyway, although I'm sure there are plenty of unscrupulous practitioners around as well - I've given one or two of them my money.

    I was just sharing info... a thought and a site had led to another thought and site, etc. and I did a search for "chronic fatigue syndrome" in the FBI healthcare fraud files, and it seems as the two things above are all that's there. [EDIT] Sorry, I'm slow (dense)! Yes, re the last sentence, what you said is true / makes sense. I was thinking though about the fraud of CBT/GET.

    Ah, I see! I do sometimes think it might be easier to get everyone together from all across the world and put them in the same room as to have a conversation on the internet where everyone understands each other.:)
