Saul Pressman sells ozone generators not approved as medical devices
A business owner in Langley, B.C., is under scrutiny by the federal competition bureau after a Calgary customer complained about how he markets unapproved medical devices to cancer patients.
"I've been taken advantage of financially, along with my wife, who was taken advantage of because she lost her hope," said Calgary resident Tim Hill, whose wife, Moira, died last year from colorectal cancer.
Saul Pressman, CEO of Plasmafire International, sold Moira an ozone generator and spa system over the internet. She paid $6,950 for both units. Records show Pressman shipped the generator but not the spa system.
