Power Balance Bracelets| its a scam TRUE STORY


This news just in… The Australian company responsible for the Power Balance bracelets which have been marketed as a method to improve strength, balance and flexibility have amid widespread pressure from the media.

The company’s claim was that the “holographic technology” mystically works with your body’s “natural energy field,” but finally people like Shaq and David Beckham will have to admit that their colourful silicon bracelets dont actually give magic powers.

After pressure from the Australian government, Power Balance has admitted to being a scam — having no evidence that it does anything.

This is what they had to say:

“In our advertising we stated that Power Balance wristbands improved your strength, balance and flexibility,” the company stated on its website.

“We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims and therefore we engaged in misleading conduct in breach of s52 of the Trade Practices Act 1974.

“If you feel you have been misled by our promotions, we wish to unreservedly apologise and offer a full refund.”

I also got conned into purchasing a Power Balance bracelet if only out of pure curiosity and while I had it on, I was fairly convinced that it indeed was giving me improved sporting abilities and absolutely amazingly bedroom athletics. Wow, all that from a little stretchy bangle hey… I think I need to get myself a Power Rich Bracelet that helps you earn cash and make big deals by working with your body’s natural energies- that would surely work- wouldnt it?

Here is Shaquille O’Neal ‘s rather emotional and very believable testomonial:

Ralph Reiff, programme director at St Vincent Sports Performance in Indianapolis, said maybe a third of the hundreds of professional and amateur athletes who train there wear the wristband or an imitation.

“I couldn’t look in the mirror and 100% say (it’s) a product I can put my brand reputation behind,” said Reiff, a certified athletic trainer.

Reiff said he believes there’s no reason to think the wristbands could produce a biological benefit, and that any benefit is purely psychological.

“It’s just like a pair of lucky socks,” Reiff said. “It’s a lucky charm, and if you believe in it, then it’s excellent.”

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...

  1. they had to admit that they cannot prove that it worked, that doesnt mean it doesnt work, nor does it make it a scam. But it is prob all mental, and if its just a mental thing that makes some people preform better then it is actually working. The power of the mind is pretty strong

    1. Yeah D, like I said- when I put it on I honestly felt like I had the balance of a ninja… Its very sad. Really does make one think about the power of the mind! 🙂

  2. I can’t believe how many people fell for this crap! Just shows how desperate people are to improve themselves, and keep up with the Jones’. Lets invent some crap and get rich?!

    1. I like your thinking!! Lets invent something and tell people it works when really, it doesnt! Well done to Power Balance for creating such a clever scam. Bastards…

  3. I love the fact you have an advert up for 65% off this product in the right hand sidebar of the site…!

    1. Hey Jack.

      Hahaha… That is quite a laugh.

      That is only due to the fact that it is a Google Ad and Google targets keywords and key phrases from articles and shows relevant ads to those keywords/keyphrases.

      We don’t have much control of what gets shown per post on that Google ad, each one is different…

      Well spotted mate!
