Lots of scammers latch onto tinnitus as an illness suffered by large numbers of people and with no obvious cure in most cases.
So, they offer some magical instant remedy.
This latest one claims “Big Pharma and supplement producers don’t understand how this one researcher has finally figured out how to stop your tinnitus”.
“Doctors say this is the most important discovery of the century”.
You just have to watch a video to see the answer.
Obviously, if someone had discovered a magic answer to tinnitus, it would on the news, in the newspapers and everyone would know about it, rather than a scammer sending out mass emails to unknown people claiming an unknown magical effect invented by an army veteran.

Tinnitus cures are a popular theme with scammers. Perhaps it’s easier to believe that someone with no medical training has found a cure for Tinnitus than it would be for major illnesses such as cancer, which is also a scammers favourite.
This email is from Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol (of the misspelled doctors at doctoors.club).
It claims that a root vegetable is the cause of tinnitus and ramps up the volume each time it is eaten.
If there were any truth in it, many people would have noticed. Hey – I haven’t eaten such a root vegetable for days and my Tinnitus has gone.
But no, Todd Carson wants us to believe that scientists at the University of Leicester have found the magic answer.
It is true that there has been research into causes of Tinnitus at the University of Leicester and they found out interesting facts related to the causes of Tinnitus and something that can help in some cases.
They were looking at Tinnitus caused by excessive sudden noises and the use of magnesium compounds that may reduce the strength of that Tinnitus.
But that’s not a magic answer and further research is needed before any medical applications can be licensed.
If you have Tinnitus, talk with your doctor – don’t be conned by scammers.
