      Has anyone got any help from T-Gone, their website looks really convincing.

      Input appreciated.

      I can't swear to this but I looked at this a while back and I seem to remember an oily feeling...snake oil I think.

      Directly from their site:

      I'm pretty sure you can't find any published studies on PubMed.

      You might want to read up on homeopathy, I don't believe in it and think it's a clever way to scam people, but that's my personal opinion and I totally respect your opinion if it differs from mine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeopathy

      As far as I know T-gone is snake oil at best. How dare they market it like that.

      Following up on this old thread authored by someone named "t-gone is a ripoff", I would like to point out the scam in question which is a "tinnitus cure" called t-gone (as well as a mention of their specific website):

      http://t-gone.com/about-us/

      upload_2014-12-28_3-8-33.png

      The product, t-gone, is based on homeopathy, and whatever remedy you will end up using, it is purer than water. There is absolutely no way this product could affect your tinnitus (except for the placebo effect).

      The site is run by John and Ellen Currie. It is a scam.

      Trash...

      Following up on my own post from yesterday about the trash website, t-gone, run by John and Ellen Currie, here is a video of them from youtube:

      Tinnitus In Both Ears Or Only One Ear? Talk...


      P.S: If they lose market share in relation to t-gone because of my posts, might I suggest they try out their skills at video production instead...? I am sure it will be a hit... :D

      I should add that the above is actually a best case scenario with t-gone... you may not even receive your order:

      The above t-gone "product" is the kind of trash you wouldn't even want to touch with a pair of iron tongs...

      The t-gone couple/scammers are also present on dailymotion where, despite being present with a video since 2008, it has thankfully only received 137 views at this time (so my comment about their video production skills in the above post still stands, I would say; perhaps they should also consider taking a course in Internet marketing, however... :D).

      A bit more information on t-gone and their "star quality" product which will "cure" you in an instant:

      T-Gone (Ratings).png

      Perhaps they should consider learning a thing or two about fake reviews if they intend to run a scam business. Judging by their video production skills along with their "impressive" Internet marketing, these guys are too stupid to own an Internet connection. I wonder how they managed to survive +10 years in the scam industry.

      Anyway... youtube scams can be reported in the following manner:

      And the above was yet another of their trash videos...

      @attheedgeofscience ...you go way beyond the call of duty!!!

      You are a one man evisceration nightmare to any scammer...The deep sea scumbags that pull this kind of stuff deserve far more than a "posted trashing", I would like to let loose one of my old hacker friends from an undisclosed country and location, who could probably make their computer fans run so fast they would "fire up" their computers in a very literal way. Would be a rewarding and fitting blaze of un-glory...but I do tend to be more dramatic I guess.

      Thanks ATEOS!!!!!!

      Homeopathy liquid or solids are in inert substances. They can't directly harm you. Or cure you in any way.

      If it is worthy of comment it should have a well designed, peer reviewed, study published.

      Thanks @ATEOS! It's shameful the way these bottom feeders prey on desperate people. I tried Lipoflavanoids at $30 US for a one month supply the first month after my onset. It was a complete waste of money. After that I learned there is no cure...I think I was in denial that first few months.
