When a company says a product does this or that, you can be sure that it doesn't, and the reason they keep advertising it means more people keep it than send it back. Some of the old clunkers they still advertise go back 40 - fifty years and are still going strong.

The most deceptive advertisment of all time guaranteed a sure fire, money back, cockroach killer. It turned out to be two boards with the instructions...

Place cockroach here on board A, hit with board B.

Another one was "Last chance to send your five dollars to ***" ... People sent thousands of fives before it died out.
