First, the product itself: Bill Tufts and the Orange TKO company have stated many times that Orange TKO is 100% organic and is made with 97% food grade d'limonene and oxygen as an emulsifier. That is a lie. Orange TKO contains 85% - 90% regular d'limonene, 5% - 6% Poly(oxy-1, 2-ethanediyl), alpha-(nonylphenyl-omega-hydroxy), and 5% - 6% Octoxynol-5. I could find no long term health studies on the effect of the two additional chemicals. However, acute exposure of hamsters to chemicals in the Octoxynol group by bronchopulmonary lavage produced pneumonia, pulmonary edema, and intra-alveolar hemorrhage. Octoxynol-9 at doses over 1 g/kg was toxic in rats and in mice in acute oral toxicity studies. Although exact dosage and effects are a little unclear, the one thing I do find very clearit is more toxic than oxygen.
Second, doing business with Bill Tufts and Orange TKO. If you decide to become a dealer or distributor of Orange TKO, please ask the company for a couple of things first. Get a copy of their business liability insurance. When you get the certificate, call the company that issued it and make sure that it is paid up and in effect. Next, request a list of six current TKO distributors with their phone numbers. Call all of them and ask their opinions on doing business with Orange TKO and Bill Tufts. Third, check out the credit worthiness of Orange TKO and Bill Tufts. You will find that he has to do everything with cash. Bill Tufts has ripped off so many individuals, distributors, and suppliers that none of them will give him credit. His main supplier, Industrial Chemical in Arvada, Colorado that actually makes the TKO blend, requires that a cash transfer be made to their account before they even start an order for him. When you ask for these things, be prepared for him to come up with some reason why you can't have them. To give you an idea of just how bad of a person Bill Tufts is, his sons Graham and Robert, have disowned him. Both used to work in a directorial capacity for Orange TKO until they could no longer deal with their corrupt father and his actions.
Third, Bill's so called Godliness and prestige. This probably the most laughable of all. Bill has no love for anyone but himself. He is an egomaniacal, manipulative; con-man that will do what ever it takes to make himself look good. He will lie, cheat, steal, take credit for you accomplishments, and blame his failures on everyone else. Again, I would not say these things without proof. Ask him for a list of people that endorse his product and their phone numbers. If you actually get it, call them and get their thoughts on Bill Tufts. It will without a doubt prove my point.
I hope that everyone that reads this will post their experiences with Orange TKO and Bill Tufts as I have on www.ripoffreport.com. Maybe if we can get enough people to come forward and tell their stories, others won't be victimized by this pariah.
One last thought. Bill Tufts will brag about the millions of dollars that Orange TKO has made over the years. He has never paid one red cent in taxes. He will tell you that Orange TKO is a Canadian company and he is not liable for U.S. taxes. The fact is, he resides and works out of his unlicensed home in Las Vegas, sells to companies and individuals in the U.S., and gets paid in American Dollars, which he deposits in an American bank. With our economy and national debt as it is, it makes me crazy that this person gets away with a free ride. NO MORE!!!
