Power Balance bracelets exposed as a scam
In follow up to a previous article I wrote on these little bullsh*t bands, there has been some legal action against The Power Balance band makers by The ACCC.
In an article over at smh.com.au (full article here), it reads:
“The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has ordered Power Balance Australia to refund all customers who feel they were misled by the supposed benefits of Power Balance bracelets.”
I wonder if this very news will convince those that have already parted with their $60 to ask for a refund?
It’s a sad case of affairs when Santa Claus is exposed as a ‘sham’, then suddenly Power Balance bands are too.
Surely the sudden price-drop on Power Balance bracelets earlier in the year MUST have been an indication?
“The bracelets currently sell for $29.90 on the company’s website, down from $60 earlier in the year.”
Not only that..
It’s creators admitted to making false claims and misleading the public…
“Power Balance acknowledged it had breached the code and said the relevant claims had been removed from its website.”
Now the Power Balance Bands have been outed, we can now all sleep easy, or can we?
It’s legions of followers claiming that it ‘worked’ for them, will have to search for a NEW placebo to waste money on.
Their strength, stability and powers of grey-skull have suddenly been stripped away in the blink-of-an-eye.
How can one EVEN walk down the street without a magnetic, plastic bracelet?
Time will tell…
