This is very serious. A lot of such products have been sold during the last few years that claimed to be made from volcanic soil and give energy to the body. FusionExcel started selling it a few years ago for around RM500 per piece or much less if you buy more and later Cosway followed by selling at a much cheaper price. There are many other brands too and some are in different forms.
Please caution all your family members and friends before they fall victims to such products.
Read links below. Both Companies have a lot of excuses for it but don't believe them !!
I have been studying energy products for a few years and I know those tricks and theory being used by those people selling most of such products are NOT right !! Those genuine products are NOT sold in such a manner. I will explain more in another day.
This remind us of those tricks used to sell some "foot-patch" that is suppose to extract your toxins through your foot overnight. That product cheated millions about 10 years ago but no one believe in it anymore. Now the trend is "energy pendant".
Since the following news are out in September last year, I have visited a few Cosway stockists office as well as FusionExcel's office in PJ.
Here's what they told me:
Cosway's stockists' and members' top 4 replies:
1)"Is that so ? I have never heard about it. I heard it was FusionExcel's Quantum pendant that was found to be harmful"(Pretending ?)
2"We are being framed. Someone send other's product to the HK govt, it's not our product"(You think HK govt so simple ? If it's not your product, have your Company written to HK govt ? Why can't you show us some documents to prove it ?)
3)"Cosway is owned by Berjaya, a big organisation, they will not sell poor quality products.(What about the Pan-Lab incident few years back ?)
4)"That HK report was a mistake or misunderstanding, we have clarified with them and we are allowed to sell in HK now. If it is really harmful, this product will be banned". (Mistake ? Then why don't your Company get them to delete that report ? Who said it must be banned ?)
Cosway is also selling an "Energy Cup"(just a metal cup with a piece of the defective SE pendant locked at the base) and a rubber necklace that also claim to produce energy. When I ask them to prove their effectiveness. No one can give me a satisfactory reply. They only said there are a lot of good testimonials(many past Companies have good testimonials too, where are they now ?) and Berjaya group is strong and reputable, so their products must be good(take me as fool ?).
FusionExcel's members' top 4 replies:
1)"That was old news. We have already submitted our products to HK for testing and it's found to be not harmful."(Then how come their Company never made any attempt to stop the HK goverment from displaying their news in the website above ?)
2)"It was Cosway pendant that was found to contain harmful ingredients"(Funny, both Cosway and FusionExcel members only know the other Company's product got mentioned by HK government but not their own)
3)"We are 4 to 5 years already. If our products are no good, we won't be so successful. Our Company produced many millionaires. Don't listen to others, our records and testimonials are the best evidence.(Then I am told who are their top earners and I am showed a lot of pictures of doctors and sportsmen pictures with their products, acting as their spokepersons or ambassadors. Even Dato Lee Choon Wei's picture is used. I am one person who don't believe in advertisements and spokepersons.)
4)"Our bosses are very nice people. They did a lot of charity, unlike Vincent Tan".(Showing me files and figures of money paid to charity. Ya, but where did all these money come from ?)
A friend told me personally that FusionExcel is aware that this product's future is no good due to several reason: Many competitors are selling them cheap, too many members are having the stock unsold, bad reputation of the pendant now etc.
They have now geared towards other products like energy bracelets, energy watches etc.
The followings below are the links in both English and Chinese reports.
1) Quantum Pendant sold by FusionExcel;
2) SE Pendant sold by Cosway.
