    Nah. In your terms, just say in really small font that not all testimonials are true.

    I also think that the standard is going to be higher for someone like a plastic surgeon. What we do is shady, but we're not exactly going to turn someone into Shrek for life as a result. If a plastic surgeon has to fake a testimonial, that's pretty fuckin scary.

    In your landing page, put a disclosure to the effect that your are just an affiliate who makes a commission on the sale of the item and is no way associated with the company views or claims..

    Similar to what TV networks disclose before they air an infomercial
