So sorry to hear that you were ripped off.
This item more than likely was on one of those blasted paid programs, which I hate with a passion!
Those **** advertisements just clog the airwaves and are so ridiculously annoying!! The biggest abuser of this is the Food Network which shuts down regular programing to run those dumb stupid ads from between 4 & 5am to about 9am, advertising just about everything from exercise equipment to make-up to gadgets for the kitchen, small appliances and whatever else have you.
Dozens of channels run these ridiculous programs every morning! And if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!
