I love the blatant attacking the credibility of the opposition, while touting one’s own ‘degree’, which we have no means of verifying the veracity therof. Ad hominem at its most elegant.

“Raaagh! Me am smart! Me am hav big mighty peni- er, degree! Puny mortal not hav smart-paper like me because him not spell good! Har har!”

Seriously, though… not recognizing (with a ‘z’ no less!) a non-American spelling? You’re telling me that in all your life you have never encountered such a thing? Your English teacher has a lot to answer for.

  Why would successful athletes like Lisa Leslie and Colt McCoy use the products daily and become independent retailers of a bogus product?

Heck, I never finished high school and I can correctly answer that question without hesitation.

In addition, I don’t believe that the atheletes are actual “retailers”.... Only Sponsors.

The “retailers” are the ones that get fooled into having their credit cards charged with what the Company calls Auto-Ship. These poor blokes are convinced by the company that they will become rich beyond their wildest dreams if they buy a month’s supply to give out free to prospects in hopes that they too will be fooled into joining the scam.

They believe that if they can actually get people under them the money will be rolling in while they sleep.

This is why they believe that the product actually works, even though there is not a shred of scientific evidence to prove that it does. In fact, the Oklahoma State University did a controlled study and found that the chips do not work. You can see the results on You-Tube.

No offense to anyone’s beliefs or opinions but how can you absolutely say that this company is a scam?  Have you performed tests or performed research of any of the technology.  As for knocking the founder’s education, since when does a degree matter?  The have recently joined forces with the NBA and WNBA who put a lot of time and money into their brand.  Why would successful athletes like Lisa Leslie and Colt McCoy use the products daily and become independent retailers of a bogus product?  I just find it strange that none of the opinions here have much basis at all but simply compare it to previous products of little similarity.

There has been absolutely no real evidence that the things work.

It has been shown that the things cannot work as claimed.

It has been shown that much of what the company claims is false.

The business practices of the company have been shown to be very suspect.

Based on that, why would you find it strange that people would suspect that CieAura is a scam?

1) This “healing hologram” technology doesn’t even pass the first test of common sense: if it’s such a breakthrough in biomedical treatment, why is it only available through a MLM scheme? Why isn’t it world wide news? No pills, no meds, no side effects, instant relief… but you can only get it as part of a dodgy pyramid retail program.

2) Athletes get paid to endorse products. It’s just that simple.

3) The various other magnetic/holographic etc scams all purport to accomplish the same ends via these astounding breakthrough mergings of “ancient holistic therapies” and “21st century science” but in the end it all comes down to the gullibility (also: wishful thinking) of the consumer looking for an easier solution to what ails them. One by one CieAura’s predecessors have fallen, and it’s only a matter of time before they do as well.

There is no science here. Well, unless you consider the calculated application of sleght-of-hand and a dazzling display of pseudo science that is used to peddle these wares.

Hope this helps! smile

I guess mythbuster2011 was scared off. Too bad, cause I had a question about their post. What does it mean “joined forces” with the NBA. I have also seen the term “partnered” with the NBA.

What does this mean? I only see this hype coming from Cieaura sites and you-tube videos but as usual, there’s no proof that it’s real. You can’t find anything about Cieaura on NBA’s site. You can’t find their phony products in the NBA Store.

So, where exactly is the “partnership” ?

Lifewave is the same as powerbalance?

The naming rights for the arena, ARCO, expired in February 2011. The arena was renamed Power Balance Pavilion on March 1, 2011 for its new sponsor, Power Balance, a manufacturer of sports wristbands.[8]

Here is a few exerpts of a sample “partnership” contract from the NBA Properties (NBAP)


1.  ETHICAL STANDARDS  
    Product Suppliers shall conduct their businesses in accordance with the
    highest standards of ethical behavior.

2.  COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE LAWS  
    Product Suppliers shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations of
    the countries, states and localities in which they operate.

3.  EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES
    NBAP will only do business with Product Suppliers whose employees are
    appropriately compensated,  present at work voluntarily,  not at undue risk
    of physical harm and not exploited in any way.  In addition,  Product
    Suppliers must comply with the following specific standards:

    o   Wages and Benefits:  Product Suppliers shall provide wages, overtime
      compensation and benefits at not less than the minimum levels required
      by applicable laws and regulations or the prevailing local industry levels, if higher.

on and on and on…........................


I’m wondering how Cieaura even entered into a contract with the NBA. Did they not check them out first?
I’m also wondering if someone was able to inform the NBA on how the NFL was sued over a similar bracelet, and what kind of company they really “partnered” with,.......would they enforce this part of the contract? :


(f)  Revocation of Approval: In the event that: (i) the quality, appearance
      or style of any Licensed Product previously approved by NBAP ceases to
      be acceptable to NBAP because of a material change in the quality,
      appearance or style of the Licensed Product,  (ii) LICENSEE uses the
      Licensed Marks improperly or violates any material term of this
      Paragraph 12 or (iii) there is an event or occurrence relating to any
      player depicted in a Licensed Product which, in the good faith opinion
      of NBAP,  defames or brings into disrepute,  or reflects unfavorably
      upon NBAP,  the NBA or any of its Member Teams,  then,  in any such
      event, NBAP shall have the right, in its sole discretion,  to withdraw
      its approval of such Licensed Product. 


7.  FAILURE TO COMPLY
    NBAP reserves the right,  in addition to all other legal and contractual rights,
    to terminate its relationship with any Product Supplier found to be in violation
    of this Code.
