    Don’t expect many certificates to go out with Rust handling this one.

  • No even January 27, 2014

    I’m not even going to fill out the paperwork on any class action if Rust Consulting is handling it…:(

  • Stefani January 28, 2014

    Rust Consulting once again, skip this settlement. It is a complete waste of time if they are handling it.

  • Patricia January 28, 2014

    Vouchers instead of cash means more money into the pockets of the lawyers and less money into the pocket of the people who bought the product.
    Rust Consulting do seems to do a lot of voucher settlements because they know that they will not have a lot of people sign up for the rebate.

    This might explain why my face broke out in blisters, turned bright red, dry and scaly within weeks of opening and using a new container of cream. I immediately stopped using it, but the damage has been done to my face and wallet. Lovely.
