La Mesa Clinic Called Fraud on 60 Minutes Report

LA MESA -- The Downtown Village of La Mesa was on the national news last night, but not in the way local boosters will brag about.
The "60 Minutes'' report about Stowe Bio Therapy on La Mesa Boulevard accused its proprietor, Lawrence Stowe of being a "con man'' who preyed on the desperately ill by giving them false hopes of a cure and charging large sums for unproven stem-cell treatments. The journalists used hidden camera video to capture Stowe's pitch to patients.
Calls to Stowe BioTherapy were not returned today. Stowe denied any wrongdoing to 60 Minutes.

With so many honest businesses struggling in this economy, it's infuriating to see blatant shysters like Stowe bilking big money out of desperate people. The sooner he's run out of town (and business!) the better.
