CRIMINAL COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST LAUNDRY RING DISTRIBUTOR

Attorney General Frankie Sue Del Papa announced today that her office has filed a criminal complaint charging Micheal Maunu and the multi-level marketing corporation Dynamic O.N.E. Worldwide, Inc. of deceptive trade practice related to the sale of a device known as the "Laundry Clean Ring." According to the complaint, the defendants were unable to substantiate the claims made when advertising the device.

Maunu turned himself in at the Clark County Detention Center this afternoon. He is scheduled for an initial appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court, Department 2, on December 4, 1997 at 7:30am.

Maunu operates Dynamic O.N.E. Worldwide located at 6800 S. Paradise Road in Las Vegas. The laundry ring device is a plastic ring with some sort of liquid inside. Dynamic O.N.E. Worldwide sells the device to be put into a washer machine instead of detergent to wash clothes. According to the complaint, the defendants claim the laundry ring uses a process described as "structured water technology." Advertisements for the laundry ring stated that this technology cleaned laundry "without the release of harmful chemicals by enabling the water in your washing machine to more effectively penetrate the fibers of your clothing and release the dirt and odor trapped in them."

Violation of the Nevada Trade Practices Act is punishable as a misdemeanor for the first offense by six months in the county jail and $1,000 fine. Violators may also be assessed a $2,500 civil penalty per occurrence.

The complaint is merely an allegation. The defendants are be considered innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.

Anyone who purchased any of the devices commonly known as the Laundry CD, Laundry Ball, or Laundry Ring are requested to contact the Attorney General's Fraud Hotline in Las Vegas at: (702) 486-3777 or contact the Attorney General's Office statewide by calling Nevada's toll-free switchboard at 1-800-992-0900.
