Advertising promises us fabulous products with undoubtful benefits. But sometimes reality disappoints. Marketing specialists are up-and-doing, so be careful, because some of us have already got scammed.

For example, buying a big salami pizza, as it’s shown on the packaging, you’ll be astonished after opening the box. The same is for cookies and different snacks.

These facts have even got a special naming “false advertising” and become an ever-living source of “expectations vs reality” .

Furthermore, even claims that a product is “scientifically proven” with “guaranteed results” could be defined as false advertising.

Beside funny pictures, false advertising is a crime, so consumers could report to special agencies, for example, the Federal Trade Commission. But the appropriate evidence is needed. Also, you can contact the producing company for a refund.

Often such advertising tricks cost companies’ reputation because of turning into a huge media scandal. As it was with Red Bull Company for its slogan “Red Bull gives you wings”. As a result, the company had to pay out $13 million of refunding, because caffeinated drink couldn’t improve concentration and reaction speed.

But we hope that you have never faced up with false advertising like people below.

And have you ever remarked something like these memes? Tell us in comments!
