In July 2014, Rossen Reports did a hidden-camera investigation on a health and wellness company called Vemma whose recruitment videos promised big money for selling its energy drink. The Federal Trade Commission had received 170 complaints against the company, and some universities had issued warnings about the company to students.

Now the FTC sued Vemma, calling it an illegal pyramid scheme, TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen reported Thursday.
