Advertising scams: But wait ... there's more!
Show Notes

Have you tried this new air freshener? A herd of stallions could spend the night in your house and with one puff of this spray, you’d never know they were there! 

And this kitchen gadget is fantastic! It slices and dices, makes ice cream and turns rancid meat fresh again. It’s just amazing!

 No, it’s not. It’s false advertising and it’s a scam. There are laws that are supposed to protect us from that, but they are not difficult to skirt. You’ve heard of miracle supplements than can cure anything from a bad cold to every cancer you can imagine. Since it’s not a medicine and just a supplement, all kinds of claims can be made and all you need is a line that says the claims have not been verified by the Food and Drug Administration and it is not intended as a cure for anything. 

This week we'll talk about false advertising, Confident Bob who pushed Enzyte to why the best values in town are under the ground -- somewhere.

 Take us up on this risk-free offer. Listen as we tell you about advertising scams and if you aren’t completely satisfied, you may delete the episode from your computer, no questions asked.

 What does pass the truth test is the claim that in two weeks we’ll be back with a new episode that will change your life.
