3. The Fraud.

They hire a slick marketing team (Mitchell k. Friedlander and Michel Meade) Both already found guilty in two other states of the same type of fraud.

(URLs removed by ripoff report)

They find some "supplement packaging company" that is willing to give them a pill of some sort, or supplement product with several benign ingredients in it -- in a nice looking package.

These fraud makers then take out ads in large circulation newspapers and magazines, some left hanging with unpaid bills. (Lets live magazine as an example) where they charge $30.00 to more than $100 for a bottle of 56 tablets that cost .25 cents to $2.00 per bottle, they create many of the same products under different company names and price them at different levels in the market place. http://www. (URL removed by ripoffreport) with most of the profit going to the bottle and box packaging. They sell as many as they can and see how many refund requests come in., If it is few, they pay, and place other ads in other media and hire lawyers to protect them from the FDA and FTC and other law enforcement agencies.

Those who buy one bottle get the bottle, but with an offer to get 6 or 12 at enormous discounts. People buy more to get the bargain -- before they discover that the stuff is worthless.

Below is an example from painstudy.com

"Those who buy one bottle get the bottle, but with an offer to get 6 or 12 at enormous discounts. People buy more to get the bargain -- before they discover that the stuff is worthless.

After some failed attempts, and being sent to two other addresses, and two eMails, I was able to get a list of ingredients. There are these:

Skullcap -- a toxic herb
Alfalfa
Celery
Joe Pye Weed -- a common weed
Betel Nut (for chewing)
Burdock -- a toxic herb
Sarsparilla --
Jalapeno
In a base of Rice Flour

(Source Of Ingredients)

The quantities for each of these ingredients is NOT shown on the label for the bottle. This product could have a trivial amount of any of these ingredients, less than 1 mg, even, and fulfill the legal minimum requirements by the FDA. Let the buyer beware. Rice Flour is undoubtedly the bulk of the tablet. Even though a couple of these ingredients are deadly toxic in large doses, this formula probably has such trivial amounts that you won't get sick!

Probably!

Some of these ingredients, in sufficient quantity, could cause a "buzz" or some effect, such as the Jalapeno, or hot pepper, that would fool a person into thinking that something good was happening. The actual names of these ingredients are shown in the Latin form, so that virtually none would recognize the herbs by their common names.

My estimate of cost of manufacture for this bottle, is less than $ .25, assuming trivial amounts of the herbs, plus the package. Since the bottle sells for $41 each, they can afford to give lots of refunds, sell just a lot and make many hundreds of thousands of dollars before they are proven to be a fraud.
They have no published information about their company on the web. Instead of that they have only the following.

customerservice@covaxillaboratories.com If you want information, click, and your eMail program opens, you get this as the address to which your query goes. No data here. That eMail doesn't work!

This page is registered to the same person's name, but does not exist on the web:


My Free Diet Fraud here is an example of their false claims

on this page http://www.basicresearch (complete URL removed by ripoffreport) they say this

"Not only did StriVectin get rid of the lines around my eyes, it did more -- it gave me an even, consistent complexion," said Tiffany Strobel, fitness specialist and editor of MyFreeDiet. "My skin just glows like a young girl's ... without the imperfections and discoloration that come with age."

but guess who owns MyFreeDiet ???? none other than Basic Research. Just look at the contact information at the bottom of MyFreeDiet also they use the same anonymouse registration company Domains by Proxy, Inc.

4. The Tyrants.

Dennis Gay, Evan Bybee, and Dr Dan Mowrey have been so mean and nasty in their growth and greed it was not hard to find employees and ex-employees that were willing to talk. I have talked to at least ten and have a list of 30 more to follow up on in my next report.. So far it is all the same story,. The owners are scumbags and threaten to file suit against any employee or entity that comes near them. They have filed tons of lawsuits so they now have some teeth. Money will do that.

Below is a small list of what employees and ex employees have said about the companies.

1b. Routine for them to change labels on a product instead of changing the product for sale or export. Thailand was the example.

2b. Not paying employees agreed upon pay or bonuses. (Several have taken company to labor board.)

3b. Constant threats to employees for talking about the company's shady business practices.

4b.Many allegations of tax evasion and hidden pay packages to management. Apparently also paying Mitch Friedlander in may "exotic" ways like paying his friends, Mother and paying for his unreported living expenses, Lexus and penthouse apartment through APRL and paying him as a consultant even after four years.

5b. Selling products under false or with misleading representations and wild and false marketing practices. (Example is Strivectin stretch mark cream the is now a miracle wrinkle cream.

6b. Firing anyone who knows too much or ask questions about finance dept practices.

7b. Firing employees after the employee discover illegal workers in the company and then keeping the illegal workers.

6b. Dennis Gay Family members working at the company are out of control and unbearable to work with.

7b.Company owners talking about how devious they are and what they can do to screw with people in front of employees.

8b. Using other companies names like Nordstroms to lend themselves credibility in the market place and example is placing the Nordstroms name on http://www.basicresearch

9b. Systematic effort to hide their identities through holding companies or secret domain registrars. (Domains by Proxy) and others.

13b. Employees leaving the company solely for ethical reasons

14b. Accusations of Evan Bybee entering into the offices of Tree house marketing group after hours and after they ended their marketing relationship.

15b. Boiler room sales tactics. about 100 of the employees at the family of fraud companies are telemarketers.

16b. Current investigations by the FDA FTC IRS and The Committee on Energy and Commerce and the Attorney Generals office.

Below is an exact statement from a former employee.

http://www.ripoffreport.com/report54520.htm

There are countless companies who have worked with Basic Research that have NEVER been paid.
I cannot say enough about this company. Basic Research has been ripping people off for over 10 years. As a former employee, I know!!! The are wiley and sue everyone they come in contact with. I will never do business with them again. they claim to have a good reputation in the industry. Like Hell. The people who know, know these guys are scum. Especially the owners Dennis Gay, Evan Bybee and Dr. Morey. There are very few manufacturers and individuals they have not ripped off. No matter what you hear about this company if it is good, DO NOT BELIeVE IT. Maybe you could ask them to tell you how they pay Mitch. He is their director of marketing and just happens to be a convicted felon. No wonder they pay his dog and his wife to hide from the IRS.

There are hundreds if not thousands of individuals who would like to see this company go down by the throat. I hear they are in Bankruptcy anyway and will probably go to Jail for Tax Evasion. There are countless companies who have worked with Basic Research that have NEVER been paid, and we are talking about 100's of thousands of dollars here. They rip you off and then say "go ahead and sue us" well I hope someone does. Get this, In GNC there is a sign in the back room from Basic Research that says "if anyone returns one of their products to get their name address copy of the drivers license and social security number and so Basic Research can sue you."

Yes they sue customers who return their products. What a joke of a company. Class act these guys are. If I were you I would run like hell if you see their name on a product. Because they do not work and if you return it, they will sue you. And they act under many different names because they hide what they do. Please research this company and take them down! You will make 10,000 people happier than you could ever imagine.

Paula Begouns take on StriVectin-SD (from latest newsletter) >>> ( )
StriVectin-SD: Better than Botox?

Quite a few of you have written asking about the rather prominent newspaper ads for the product StriVectin-SD ($135 for 6 ounces). With a headline that reads "Better than Botox," along with the increasing number of topical products hitting the market claiming they can mimic the effects of Botox without "painful injections," I certainly understand the curiosity.

I wrote about StriVectin-SD in a previous newsletter, when a reader asked about its ability to repair stretch marks. That was StriVectin's original marketing claim to fame, though the fame was all self-promoted, as there is not a single independent, peer-reviewed study to prove that StriVectin is an effective option for repairing stretch marks. The studies that do exist about StriVectin's benefits for stretch marks were paid for by Klein-Becker, the company that distributes StriVectin.

According to the company's latest ads, they were surprised to find that not only was StriVectin-SD getting rid of women's stretch marks, but also that somehow their facial wrinkles were going away, too. For that reason, we now have the astounding "anti-wrinkle breakthrough of the decade." Regrettably, no supportive research needs to be available to sell this kind of hyperbole. All it takes is to promise women that a product will get rid of their wrinkles and they will buy it in droves, no matter how many other product lines, infomercials, advertisements, or cosmetics salespeople pledge the exact same thing.

StriVectin's ad continues with "The active formula in StriVectin-SD has recently been shown in clinical trials to significantly reduce that category of fine lines and facial wrinkles that can add 1015 years to your appearance...and even reduce the dark circles under your eyes...without irritation, painful injections, or surgery." One more flourish is the statement that "in fact, [StriVectin-SD] is the only topical formulation clinically proven to effectively confront every aspect of wrinkle reduction." It is easy to debunk all of this overblown nonsense by pointing out the product's lack of sunscreen; perhaps StriVectin overlooked the research about sun exposure's deleterious, wrinkling, and discoloring effects on skin.

Klein-Becker has parlayed these claims into what appears to be little more than an effort to spin off the popularity of Botox to its own benefit. StriVectin-SD is supposedly preferred because its long-term results versus the short-term results (and repeated treatments) of Botox. A Dr. Nathalie Chevreau is quoted in the ad, saying "the cumulative effects of using a product like StriVectin become more noticeable every day, and ultimately last longer than Botox." Chevreau is hardly an impartial source, as she works for Klein-Becker. Further, Dr. Chevreau is a licensed dietician in Utah, a fact that is conveniently left out of StriVectin's ad because it would conflict with her credibility as a medical doctor speaking about the legitimate benefits of an antiwrinkle cream.

The final Botox comparison comes from the ad's statement that StriVectin not only addresses the _expression lines Botox treats, but also the lines Botox doesn't affect. However, the only lines Botox wouldn't affect are the ones not injected.

Needless to say, Klein-Becker's statements comparing StriVectin-SD to Botox have not gone unnoticed by Allergan, the company that manufactures the drug. According to an article in The Salt Lake Tribune, Allergan has threatened to sue Klein-Becker for false advertising and unfair business practices. After the tension continued to mount on both sides, Klein-Becker actually went ahead and took the case to court, asking a federal judge to approve its advertising for StriVectin-SD. As this newsletter goes to press, Klein-Becker has not taken their lawsuit any further.

In the meantime, the "Better than Botox" ads remain in wide circulation and are sent via spam emails, and StriVectin-SD is now available at Nordstrom department stores.

So is StriVectin better than Botox? The short answer is no--and that means no way, and nohow. It isn't even better than the daily use of an effective sunscreen! StriVectin is merely a moisturizer with some good emollients and antioxidants, though the addition of peppermint oil is extremely suspect--the tingle is probably meant to lead women to believe that the product is doing something to their skin. Botox prevents the use of facial muscles, and that instantaneously smoothes out the skin. StriVectin-SD won't alter the wrinkling on any part of your face, not in the long term, and not in the short term.

Incidentally, the two studies quoted in StriVectin's ads for "Better than Botox" were supposedly from information presented at the 20th World Congress of Dermatology, held in July 2002. These examined the effects of palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 (trade name: Matrixyl, but also known as Pal-KTTKS, which is the term used in StriVectin's ads) and compared it to vitamin C and retinol. However, there is no published research substantiating the results, and StriVectin declined to send us any documentation.

AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAID.... I WILL NOT CARRY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS. OVERPRICED AND NEVER MET ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN ANY RESULTS.

AUTHOR: ERIK - (U.S.A.)

I AM A NUTRITIONIST AND OWN A NUTRITION STORE IN ROYAL OAK MICHIGAN, I WILL NOT CARRY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS. OVERPRICED AND NEVER MET ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN ANY RESULTS. BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT YOU HAVE BEEN MISINFORMED REGARDING THE SAFETY OF SKULLCAP

AND BURDOCK. THEY ARE NOT TOXIC. THE FORMULA YOU ARE REFERING TO IS STRANGE FORMULA, NOT SURE WHAT THEY WERE INTENDING, LOOKS LIKE A CLEANSER OR SOMETHING FOR CELLULITE. ANYWAY, THOSE HERBS ARE NOT TOXIC. STAY AWAY FROM ANY COMPANY IN WHICH PRICES ARE GREATER THAN $75.00 IN OUR INDUSTRY. THEY ARE USUALLY SCAMS OR HAVE BEEN PRICED TO HIGH BECAUSE OF GREED ON THE PART OF THE COMPANY. THE BEST PRODUCTS I HAVE EVER SEEN ARE SOME OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE.

Say No To Scams

AUTHOR: Calley - (U.S.A.)

Have you ever been scammed by anyone? It is devistating in some cases and in others small and irritating in others. Always make sure you have a contract and/or a written agreement before you agree to buy, sell, or trade anything. It is a very stressfull situation when you have been taken advantage of.
