PUBLIC NOTICE: Products labeled “Astridian” manufactured in Mexico by ChemCream, S.A.P.I. de C.V., one of several companies controlled by Kevin Walton Rude, are illegally using the Astridian brand without permission of the registered trademark owner. These unauthorized products are being manufactured and marketed in violation of Mexican and United States law. The public is warned by the trademark owner to not purchase these products.
Rude, once convicted of a drug offense in Michigan, is also subversively and illegally marketing these products under the “Cancer Cell Treatment” or “CC Treatment” name. He makes drug claims for these products without government approval in violation of the laws of the US, Mexico, and virtually every nation. He markets “CC Treatment” using a sham company name and fake Hong Kong address. When a customer orders the “CC Treatment,” Rude ships them cosmetic products from Mexico.
Rude, an American living in Mexico away from US law enforcement, risks severe civil and criminal penalties by using a registered Trademark to which ChemCream has no rights. Violations of 18 U.S.C. § 2320, Trafficking in Counterfeit Goods, are punishable by fines up to $2,000,000 and imprisonment up to 10 years. Mexico and other countries have similar laws.
Americans ordering Astridian-labeled product from Mexico risk having their shipments seized at the border by US Customs for trademark infringement. Those ordering the “CC Treatment” risk seizure of products in the US under the False Claims Act or by the FDA as products contaminated by a non-approved drug.
Complying with the law, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have removed Astridian accounts set up by Rude and his associates.
The registered owner of the Astridian trademark, based in the United States, warns the public not to support this criminal enterprise in Mexico by ordering Astridian-labeled products manufactured by ChemCream.
