BUYHEAR.COM and Manufacturer's Roles and Responsibilities


With last year’s collapse of BuyHear.Com there seems to be little in the way of knowing how many consumers were affected. The BBB reports indicate dozens of complaints but how many consumers were and actually hit by this endeavor? What role did manufacturers play in selling the devices to this on-line seller? The lack of transparency and ethics for some appears in the very least to be amoral as the world embraces on-line selling and looks for the next AMAZON. What do other consumers think of the BuyHear meltdown? Why is it that they could acquire and sell medical devices that have the potential to harm hearing and increase hearing loss. Oticon at least sued the site; but what about the others? What is the full range and impact on the hearing consumer? Should the FTC or State Attorney Generals launch an inquiry?
