    Hey everybody! Not sure where to post this but thought some of you might be interested.

    Jim Davis found this site the other day: The Elektronic Smoking Solution : Elektric Blue

    If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find this claim:

    **The Elektric Blue Electronic Cigarette is FDA Approved as a medical device. This product does contain nicotine which has been proven to be highly addictive. This product may not be used by individuals under the age of 18.

    Jim apparently questioned them about this and they said yes, it is FDA approved: FDA#: 3007697818

    So I'm just wondering....how can they claim this? Anyone guess what this is all about?

    Great find Rock! Yeh, probably would be good to change it...BIG difference between being registered and being approved! :D

    Thanks for the info!

    FDA = False Direct Advertising

    Not to mention it's a lame looking over priced kit. No cartridge last as long as they claim theirs does, cartomizers are hard pressed to do that let alone one of the 3 piece units. It kills me to see that crap on sites, then the customer is in for a big surprise and is all bent out of shape when they find that it's closer to 4 cigarettes per cart if that.

    I got the same answer Kevbow; I sent the guy another e-mail, politely stating he was full of poop, along with his statements of "Healthier", "Use it anywhere", "1 cart = 1 pack". We'll see if he answers.

    Lets see them run from that. And I will follow up with the FDA about this.

    Nice Jim.....they also claim you get 50% off your first order but when I got to the checkout process.....the point where they wanted my CC number it didn't give me 50% off. These guys are a total scam and give the e-cigarette industry a bad name.

    I think that 50% off the first order was if you signed up with AlertPay instead of Paypal. Not that I am defending this foolish site. I hate jerks like this out to make a quick buck and mislead people, no doubt there is some retiree somewhere getting ready to write out a check or hit the enter button to place on order with this twit! We need to hit him with a DOS, that should send a message.

    I would also love to see all the members call his number this weekend and leave a bunch of voice mails on his machine maybe that will get the point across.

    This is why I would be shocked if Judge Leon does not find for the FDA with regards to regulation---Just look at these claims made by this company:

    Reasons people use Eleckric Blue Cigarettes include:
    • Healthier Smoking with no Tar nor Carcinogens
    • Freedom to smoke anywhere and everywhere
    • No first or second hand smoke
    • No odor
    • Non-flammable
    • Convenient and cheaper than traditional cigarettes
    • Ability to reduce levels to help with cessation
    This is SE all over again.

    Jim;
    If you can, post a link so others can report it too. The more, the merrier.

    I really dislike cross-posting, but this is the post I made to the thread about this company in the 'General E-Smoking Discussion' forum (makes me wonder if "Ken Burrows" is an alias for "Ken Steltmen"...):

    Personally, I think the ECA should do that...

    Actually, I think we all should do it. It shows these fools that the ECA has some backing.

    They forgot number one:
    "People generally recognize the potential life-saving benefit offered by personal nicotine vaporizers, and are too ignorant of the product market to look for a vendor who's not scamming them"
