Cool story brah!
But, just so you know, you can't "file charges" with the BBB, and, the BBB is powerless to do anything if/when you submit a complaint to them.
And when you sue for false advertising be sure to have many 10's of thousands of dollars ready for your attorneys, and don't forget that without any monetary damages, you will not even have any standing to sue them.
But, being the legal-genius that you are, I guess you already know this.. Just pray that your case does not go to Judge Judy, because she would probably say something like "you bought this junk from a TV commercial and actually expected it to work like they said?!"
I was depressed for many years bacause of my feet I had a very bad callous problem, then when I saw this commercial I though it might work but I found out it was just a scam that took a way my money and hope. Very sad I continued using natural home remedies that never worked, then a lady came to me showing this awesome opportunity with products that come from the dead sea, one more time I was afraid it wouldn't work, but for my surprise I just give it a try and I been a customer for her since then it's natural and it works.
good luck and I am so happy since.
You can very well say that about most products,food joints, beauty products, etc... They all try to make their product look better, be better... I use oxy clean... Does it work? Sure. Does it work as good as they say?.no... Neither does tide or purex. Do You ever go to mcdonalds and your food just looks like the commercial? No... but You eat it anyway. It is marketing, its business...
glad I found this because I am usually the one buying the crappy products but now I dont have to.
I think the safest bet in buying ANYTHING "As Seen on TV" is to buy it from a Walgreens, CVS, Bed Bath & Beyond, or Kmart rather than purchasing through the commercial. It's doubtful you'll get your money back from them (I am still PO'd over a plastic sleeve that was supposed to cook pasta. Cost me $30 and it seemed superglued shut -- I couldn't open it. I shipped it back, neglected to get proof of shipping, which would have cost me even more, and the people claimed I never returned it to them -- money down the drain. Never again!!).
Getting involved with the nonsense of shipping costs and proof of shipping is ridiculous when these retailers all carry the stuff, and they will take it back with your receipt if it's within the time they give you, no questions asked. And just like someone else on this board said, I have yet to try anything "As Seen on TV" that was a great product. I've returned the Yonanas, the PedEgg (HORRIBLE), and Heel-tastic, a moisturizing stick that was supposed to help with cracked skin on the heels. Save your money!
I would like to share my story. i had severely dry and cracked feet. I found that the hard cracked skin on your feet are caused by a fungus similar to athletes foot. It is caused by excessive moisture and sweating. I had a doctor tell me that about it while seeking treatment for a toenail fungus. He said that if I wanted to clear up my dry cracked feet to clean the floor of the shower on a regular basis, to wear more absorbent socks, thoroughly dry your feet after showering prior to putting on socks and shoes, and to use Tinactin foot powder every morning. I started to see the results after a month. In three months my feet were much smoother. It took about 6 months for them to completely clear up. That was 10 or so years ago.
To this day I still put Tinactin on my feet after getting out of the shower and my feet are baby smooth. All the products that you see on tv that claim to cure dry cracked feet are a waste of money a well as the foot scrapers. They do not address and treat the cause of the problem. I will recommend using the a foot scraper to scrape away as much of the dead skin as you can then start using the tinactin foot powder that way it will yield quicker results. (Side note: I had to get an oral medication to take care of the toenail fungus. The tinactin foot powder helped by attacking it from the outside and reducing the moisture -I had really sweaty feet). The tinactin powder is also helping to prevent the reoccurrence of the toenail fungus. Since using tinactin my feet don't get anywhere as hot and sweaty as they used to. If you want to get rid of your cracked feet skin, use Tinactin foot powder.
