Summary
This entertaining program dramatizes, with comic effects, what happens to those of us who don't practice good consumerism. Many times, people can be taken in by shady service and sales persons, as well as products and services that promise results that are just too good to be true. Featuring professional actors, this program gives viewers some basic information to avoid being taken advantage of. Watch as a married couple make some basic consumer mistakes, and see how they are able to recognize and learn from them, with a little help from a representative of the Better Business Bureau. The comic approach holds the viewer's attention and ensures that the important messages about good consumerism hit home
