A dent removing machine that too at a cost of Rs 2,000/- only. Or my favorite - A machine that will stimulate the leg muscles in a way as if they are walking. The programme claims that just by strapping this particular machine the wearer can just sleep and he or she would lose weight. Telebrands is a lazy person’s paradise. It the only place in the world that has no pain and all the gain. Way to go Telebrands.
The search on the Google was very revealing. The reality of the issue became very clear. Viewers are taken in by these claims. The worst thing about the programmes is the brain washing technique. The same sales talk is repeated so many times that the viewer will start to believe them. They appear to be really genuine products. The ordering and paying for them is ridiculously easy. That is the only easy part. Once the product is delivered the real fun starts. The viewer is struck with a product that he or she cant even dispose off. One final piece of advice. If getting thin and having wavy thick and luscious hair was so easy there would not have been a fat person or a baldie in this world. Trust me.
Most of the product claims are unbelievable. If anyone makes an unbelievable claim immediately become cautious. Just like the Nigerian fraud as it is now famously called. Nigerian fraud is an e-mail that informs you that you have won a lottery of a million dollars (Rs 4.5 crores). The sender very innocently and innocuously will ask for your account number (or even your password). Or the most popular trick which is to ask for Rs 50,000/- rupees to be sent as a processing fee.
Some of the tricksters have become so audaciously that they even come down to Indian cities to snare unsuspecting victims. So never give out any personal details including bank accounts numbers and password to any person to any web site. Be very careful of phishing attacks – phishing attacks is a tactic where a fake web site will appear like a genuine web site and this fake site will extract personal information. Personal information thus extracted will be used to devastating effect to cripple the victim financially.
How to we protect ourselves? There is no easy way out. We are what we are. Our bodies our hair our structure is in many cases decided by our genes. Yes a healthy life style can help. So instead of believing in such faddish claims concentrate on things that can be done. A disciplined life and a healthy mind can go a long way in solving some of the health related problems that we face in life. Trying to become rich over night is never really possible. It is only possible in the movies or in dreams. Dreams that should not remain only as day dreams. Dreams that have to be realized brick by brick toiling away the old fashioned way. Like the saying “Rome was not build in a day”.
