Ab Circle Pro Weight Loss Claim Fraud

Have you ever been up at night and sat through some of those repetitive infomercials?  They seem to go on and on for hours and all of them tend to follow the same formula:  the commercial is structured to gradually reveal more and more ‘amazing’ facts about the product being promoted and so by the time the ad finishes you are actually contemplating reaching for your phone and calling now (so you can qualify to be one of the first 50 callers through and get a special ‘gift’).

 If you have subjected yourself to this type of ‘television torture’ in the last couple of years, you have probably seen the infomercial for the Ab Circle Pro.  You know the one right?  Let me give you a visual:  There is numerous very body beautiful people, who are kneeling on large circle-like contraption, and (with their upper body stationary) swinging their hips from side to side.  Apparently, this ‘hip circling’ exercise will transform your body into that of Miranda Kerr’s in no time (really?).  Actually, to be more precise, the infomercial claimed that if you used the Ab Circle Pro for only 3 minutes per day, you would lose 4.5kg in 2 weeks.   

    

The Ab Circle Pro sounds too good to be true – could it be?  Well, yes, it very much is.  In fact, the outrageous weight loss claims made in the infomercial saw the marketers of the product be prosecuted by the Federal Trade Commission.  As a result of their ‘misleading’ advertising, marketers of the Ab Circle Pro have been forced to repay up to $25 million in refunds to customers.  The Federal Trade Commission found the advertising to be deceptive with the claims about weight loss being simply ‘false’.   Read more here:  http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-technology/marketers-of-ab-circle-pro-paying-up-to-25m-20120824-24ph4.html
