ATLANTA — Miguel Calderon, a retired construction worker with a sixth-grade education, says an Herbalife distributor tricked him into squandering $30,000 in life savings on weight-loss shakes.

At the same time, Calderon says, he signed an agreement after reading very little of it or the marketing documents that detailed Herbalife’s policies and pay structure.

“There was a small doubt in my mind always,” Calderon said in an interview, speaking Spanish. “But because you have a desire to work and make better, I continued.”
