Or worse! Having a gate! On an actual path!!

Does anyone have the first name of the former fl now ariix manager. I think we will see more joining soon. The compensation plan is way higher to attract them in but the problem is that the wampum they have to try and sell is extremely expensive. The puritii air filter for your house is £1612.86 here.

Fights Leukaemia, Cancer, Organ failure and death?! What on earth? Isn't that breaking the law [Cancer Act 1939]? (just looked at it with the sound down so may be missing something vital...)

FLhahaha Thu 25-Feb-16 16:43:15

That makes me so cross! 'WHO calls air pollution one of the greatest threats to human health'. Yes - for people who live in poorly ventilated dwellings and cook on an open fire! Not really for people who can spend £1600 on an air purifier.

Anyway - the cancer bit - does this need reporting to the ASA or some other medical body?

Patzy85 Thu 25-Feb-16 16:44:25

I've noticed that Ariix is all about expense, but as they say 'Arrix is Latin for gold' (maybe that's what everything is made out of?) The enrolments packs are crazy prices!

lastuseraccount123 Thu 25-Feb-16 16:44:40

I think someone needs to tell them leukaemia IS cancer.

Not the sharpest knives are they?

lastuseraccount123 Thu 25-Feb-16 16:45:38

it's like saying "fights the FLU and INFLUENZA!!"


Eyespying Thu 25-Feb-16 16:53:27

Ah, but does 'Ariix' also fight poverty and impecuniosity?

Gimlet1984 Thu 25-Feb-16 16:55:41

It's quite disturbing how relaxed they are in making medical claims but I assume this is because the asa hasn't challenged them yet.

Please tell me they are not claiming their air filter fights cancer?

Place marking. My goodness this is fast moving, really struggling to keep up but good work!

Patzy85 Thu 25-Feb-16 17:15:58

Fullyloaded - I'm sure this will be classed as the work of closed mined, bitter, jealous haterz who don't like to see people succeed.

As opposed to people who don't like lies, law breaking, deceit and fleecing victims for a CC.

Oh my good gosh I take a break to pretend I have a life from mumsnet and come back to this!

This is all very exciting huns!

I have just lost spent several hours of my life catching up.

The MLMs are clearly getting rid of their excess exclamation marks and giving them to their bots to use up. It's the only rational explanation for the incredibly high level of use!!!!!!

"Fights parsley AND herbs!'

"Fights Aloe AND Aloevera!"

lastuseraccount123 Thu 25-Feb-16 17:25:34

"fights cheese AND dairy!"

"fights wine AND alcohol!"

sorry guys...grin

lazycoo Thu 25-Feb-16 17:38:26

hoping BotWatch will be along in a moment to help tidy up those medical claims.

<shameless placemarking>

Hoping barnbot and her lovely friends can find us here

Toobusytowee Thu 25-Feb-16 17:39:22

I've had a reply from the MHRA about the prolific health postings from a bot who is refusing to remove her claims. FLP have done nothing despite me complaining.

They have started their investigation but say they cannot keep me informed of their findings. Shame. I'll just keep an eye on the offending FB page and see what happens...

lastuseraccount123 Thu 25-Feb-16 17:46:26

too busy keep us posted.

are those claims on the UK site or the USA site though? I wonder how that works.

Toobusytowee Thu 25-Feb-16 17:49:14

I was wondering that myself Last. I don't know what rules they have over there. I know it's something to do with the FDA but I'm not confident enough to challenge them with USA rules. We need British FB Ariix claims to refute.
