Boca Energy Bracelet Company Hit With Lawsuit

Arjana Xexo has filed a lawsuit after she paid $19.90 plus $15.90 for shipping and handling for two iRenew bracelets that she was shocked to discover didn't improve her health.

A Michigan woman says the energy bracelets a Boca Raton-based company sells on late-night TV infomercials don't do a bit of good, and she's looking for a big payday.

Arjana Xexo has filed a lawsuit after she paid $19.90 plus $15.90 for shipping and handling for two iRenew bracelets that she was shocked to discover didn't improve her health, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Xexo has filed a lawsuit, and her lawyer estimates damages at $5 million.

The infomercials for the rubber bracelets with a metal insert say it helps with overall health and helps rebalance one's "Biofield."

John Merritt, president of Boca-based iRenew Bio Energy Solutions LLC, wasn't available for comment.

Late last year, Harvest Trading Group, the company that markets the bracelets, received an F rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Xexo's attorney is asking to be allowed to sue on behalf of hundreds of others who bought the bracelets and were dissatisfied.
