Power Balance bracelet had to admit they are a scam

in Scams

For those who read this blog you may have noticed we have written about the Power Balance bracelet as well as the EFX and many other bracelets that supposedly balance your body or do some other health benefit.

What is the Power Balance Scam?

Many celebrities and athletes use these bracelets and wear them out in public. People like P. Diddy, Robert De Niro, David Beckham and others have been caught on camera wearing these superstitious things.

Well the Australian government has asked for Power Balance to officially apologize for making false claims to the citizens of Australia and offer a refund.

Yesterday a class action lawsuit was issued in California against Power Balance bracelets as well. This is a typical Kevin Trudeau type of thing where a company starts selling something and saying all kinds of claims knowing they will get hit with class action lawsuits, attorney general investigations and so forth only to do it all over again.

I am sure Power Balance knew they would have to pay for scamming eventually but several people probably raked in money handsomely in the process.

Power Balance bracelets is now on record in the country of Australia for admitting that their bracelet really is the scam I have been saying it is for several months now.

Unfortunately even when a company comes out and declares that they are a scam it will not detract hard core believers. The reason people will continue to believe in these things is the same reason people will always believe in horoscopes, crystals, and Indian dream catchers.

You can see the official notice that they had to write and publish in the image below.

Hmm… what can i say.
You choose to believe that people selling these bands are taught to scam people. Not my experience and i know several that are selling them. My wife has been in energetic medicine for many years and can feel the energy movement when using them on but likely that's something you know little of but believe is a scam as well. I know many people who are using them who feel a difference and some do not kinda like modern medicine where you feel the side effects but get little from the drug itself.
I have worn the band(s) for some time and will continue to do so. I am not a distributor but am just defending the use of energetics as a means of healing because it works for me.

I'm an experienced skateboarder and I do a lot of stretching. I feel that I am really in tune w/ the limitations of my flexibility. While taking the test, I thought about how the ways they could scam me so I didn't pay attention so much to the guy and more to the way my body actually felt. It actually made me a believer! I bought one and wondered the rest of the night if I had been bamboozled somehow or just charmed into it. Maybe I wanted to be charmed or something. Who knows? Anyway, I get home and decide to run some different tests. I did a sit and reach stretch w/ the band on. I took it off and sat for a minute. My next try w/o the band, I was in far more pain and couldn't reach nearly as far. Put it back on and did a much further reach again w/ much less pain? I got the same results w/ a standing toe-touch w/ even more dramatic results! Let me note that I am trying really hard to disprove this to myself. I still, really don't want to believe that it works. But! It seems to be working.
I don't know? I just got it and I am going to continue running tests. Maybe it is a placebo? Maybe believing so strongly in something unlocks a new dopamine or adrenaline-type chemical that allows the body to push it further? Maybe the metals in the bracelet actually do improve circulation, which would explain the increased flexibility. I don't know? Also, it very true that some things work for some people and some not. So, it would make sense that there is a giant group of people that feel like they got scammed, whereas it may just not work on them?
