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!
