PINOOK USA SCAM- I MASSAGE SCAM

review #218985

I was approached by this guy in Lynnhaven Mall, in Virginia Beach, VA on Lynnhaven Parkway. He was selling these little devices that makes these electric shocks. Well I was never told there was no refund policy. Isacc stated to me that if you don't like the product you may return product for 100% money back. Well after doing an investigation and reviews on it, I wanted to return the product. Well I first call Isacc on his phone that he provided me, which was disconnected. So I located the store phone number, the man who answered the phone said Isacc was no longer working there. Well it sounded like Isacc himself. Then we told them we don't want the product and we are returning it. Well then the guy said he didn't understand english. He then hung up on me. So I had someone else call in and they hung up on them too. This company which is based in Orlando, FL is nothing but a SCAM. I was able to call the owner and he didn't like getting bothered on his cell phone. Isacc also told me if for any reason the product fails at anytime we can exchange it either at that kiosks or any other store. Well that was nothing but a lie. I investigated this company and found out you have to send product in, with $19.95 so they can ship replacement back to you. If you don't at the 60 day point they will trash the unit. None of this was disclosed at all. The address for this location is:

If the only reason you wanted to return it was because of things you had heard from reviews then it sounds like you don't need it in the first place. This device has kept me off of pain killers for three years and counting. I use it every day and has yet to let me down. Never buy from a kioske in the mall. If you're interested in something they have to offer, look up the product online and you will most likely not get screwed over in the future.
I bought this unit from a trade show. Loved it!!! :zzz I suffer from neck and upper back problems, sometimes putting me in pain for a couple weeks at a time. The Chiro I saw after my auto accident had a device like this he used to use on me to manage the pain. It was great!
So when the sales man introduced me to this product, letting me try this for 20 minutes (which at the time I had a tension headache) feeling relief that quickly, I purchased it right away. :zzz
I carried this massager with me every where I went in little zipper bag I kept it in. Used the heck out of it for about 6-8 months. Went to use it one day and nothing!!!! It turns out, the window lights up, I can move through the different message settings. But I get nothing through the pads. My device came with 4 pads, and two wires. I tried using the second wire that I had used before and changing to the new pads as well. Still

Bought this for great deal including the one's for the feet. My wife has suffered with a problem in her foot for years, I was very surprised as was she when after only 15 mins of use she said the next day that her foot didn't hurt. It was the first time in years. She was the biggest skeptic on this but after using it, is a believer.

Now operating under Palm Massage Digital Therapy. Total scam. Alert Virginia State Consumer Affairs, Lynnhaven Mall Office, and FDA. Was told product was FDA approved, it is not. FDA has been investigating. It might make you feel better for now, but you have no idea what longterm damage you are doing to your body.

I bought this product at kiosk 2 years ago, after my cost for doctors,TMJ,chiropractor, massages, physiotherapy, medication... exceeded $5000 in one single year. I suffer from back and neck pain and almost killed myself because of the pain. I stopped counting doctors visits and got disappointed when I was told that all is in my head, only because doctors could not get proper diagnosis.
After using this product, my health has been improved. However i am still seeing chiropractor and masseur once a month, but cost went down to maximum of $ 500 a year. Also I joined gym. Somehow I have found balance in my life. My health is stable now and I am 90%free of the pain and pain killers.
I am happy with the product. At the time of purchase I spent $199. The product was worth the money.

Well if it's not a scam then they just have crappy business practices... I found this on the FDA website http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/2012/ucm312639.htm.
It explains the several violations with the FDA.
And the letter is addressed to the same person named above and notice they don't sell this product anymore and other websites that used to sell them don't work anymore.

I too was ALMOST scammed by these people. I've always known to take kiosk retailers cautiously. But this guy's name was Shane and he saw that I wasn't taking the bait so he said that he would drop the price from $199.00 to $100.00 AND throw in a $60.00 heating pad if I "buy it now". That offer in itself is enough to make me not want to buy it...thats just too much of a difference in a spur-of-the-moment offer. So I said no and figured I'd come home and read up on them, and lo and behold, lots of other people have been scammed also by this company. So buyer beware electronic massagers sold in mall kiosks!!

A little due diligence and you can purchase these units all day long from the manufacturer in China for about $3 each !!! Sounds like the majority of you were "impulse" buyers at some cheap kiosk in your local mall.

Where can I get one of these mini-massagers for under $110 ???
Need another one, and could then give my daughter one as a gift.
Thanks. You can email me cat.st@icloud.com

Let's just say I'm not happy :( that after spending 110.00 for this device I only had 1/2 year usage!!! I miss this device though. :cry I am going to look for another device, with the same options but of a different name brand! :sigh... Show more

It was the first time in years. She was the biggest skeptic on this but after using it, is a believer. She stills says a coincidence but really after all these years? You be the judge... For me the pads I used on my lower back for about 20 mins and afterward it's been two days and no back pain. I'm a skeptic as well, I say a placebo effect but whatever the reason, two of with no pain in problem areas after years! For me jury is still out but it's winning me over fast... Paid less then $100 on both and got bracelets x 3 as well. Second guessed getting it at first but really this worked so to me it was worth every penny. :)
