Company apparently in tub of trouble

KGO (Ch 7) brought us this report last night regarding a raid involving various law enforcement agencies on Safeguard Tubs’ offices on Lakeside Drive in Richmond.

Owned by a company called GreenWorksUS, Safeguard Tubs, sells walk-in bath tubs, and their advertisements particularly target seniors.

KGO reporter Laura Anthony, who broke the story, Tweeted that the investigation involves “false advertising and overcharging elderly customers.”

An interesting part of KGO’s story was how some employees felt about working at the Richmond facility.

“There were 200 low-wage employees, working in a phone bank, with few breaks, making up to 600 cold calls per day,” employees told KGO.

And an employee admitted anonymously, “There has to be something shady because it just seemed like a shady place.”

The clip below is one of the company’s many sales videos.
