A Fool And His Money Are Easily Parted...

....Or something like that.

I admit many of these infomercials are good at seducing you. But I've never bought anything from them and not sure I will.

I'm always cautious about any product tote to go above and beyond.

This link below is very interesting about all the people going to prison for misleading informercials that take away people's hard earned money.

The Tricks Behind Infomercial Get-Rich Pitches


Questions: 
Do you or would you buy from informercials or sign up for any of their work at home programs?

  1. No to the work at home thing (because I did, when I was a teenager...I responded to one of those "stuff envelopes from home" things that cost $10. It was not just stuffing envelopes, but finding the addresses to send them to. No thanks!). As for products...would depend on what it was. Not any hair care/face care/anything you put on your body...but something I could actually see the functionality I might, because I've seen some of these type of things in friends homes that actually worked. But haven't seen anything I wanted yet!

  2. I'm rather skeptical about the claims given by those informecials and wouldn't buy anything from there. I'm for work at home gigs if they are reasonably paying

  3. 1) No, I fear those things and I would never trust any of them.

  4. I'm a firm believer that if it sounds to good to be true it probably isn't. I would never buy or sign up for anything advertised on an infomercial.

  5. Never would sign up for work at home stuff. 99 9/10ths of it is a scam. Would I buy a product from them it depends. I have bought, but never was really satisfied. Have a great weekend.

  6. I'm exceedingly wary of any kind of infomercial. They just have a bad feel to me. The crappy acting, the over acting, etc. I could almost use them for comedy relief if they weren't so annoying.

  7. I have never purchase anything through an infomercial. For one thing, the shipping and handling is always ridiculous and the get rich quick stuff always seems like a fraud. Better to stay away I think.

    Aloha!

  8. The infomercials are so unbelievable I don't think I've ever bought anything from them. I would be skeptical of their work at home programs.

  9. I agree with Michelle about being skeptical but I have purchased a Brownie Pan that I would like to return : (

  10. I agree, they can be really misleading because they want to get into your mind so you will want to buy their product. I have never bought anything and I don't think I ever will.

  11. I really don't spend any time on infomercials. I occasionally go to the As Seen on TV store but that's it!

  12. I don't know if I have. Maybe once? It was either a fitness item or kitchen item. But, it's been a long time ago, and I know whatever it was didn't get used, so I just never watch them because they never do what they claim.

  16. No more infomercials for me. I used to buy things all the time but it's never as easy to use the product as they make it look.

  17. No I question all those products and schemes also...at least I know they probably won't work so don't buy them.
