Exposes TV Snakeoil

Is the product in the informercial a scam? Probably, but you can check to be sure. There users post reviews about infomercial companies. It’s not just trashing, readers can also post a “defend” if they feel the company is wrongly accused. A ticker by each company keeps track of the number of complaints lodged.

The FTC only prosecutes an average of five cases against false infomercial advertising a year. The infomercial industry makes an average of 2 new commercials a day, over 700 a year.

A good resource for checking out infomercial products. — BEN POPKEN [Official Site] (Thanks to Sam!)
