Howard Products, Inc Restor-A-Finish
It appears the vendor is trying to replicate Howard Products’ Restor-A-Finish Wood restoration spray. The two products utilize the same spelling, with the exception of hyphens. Restor-A-Finish ($9.98 for 16 ounces) is significantly more cost-efficient than Restofinisher ($29.95 plus $3.95 for shipping).
Nanoagic NanoSparkle Car Cleaning Cloth
The vendor promotes the NanoMagic NanoSparkle Car Cleaning Cloth, which is also rated an “F” by BBB for violating its Refund Policy.
Afterword – RestoFinisher Scam
Is RestoFinisher a scam? There is no evidence to back these claims. However, BBB has rated the RestoFinisher vendor an “F” for failing to resolve customer complaints. The vendor also promotes the NanoMagic NanoSparkle Cloth, which has also earned itself an “F” BBB rating.
Online visibility is limited to paid reviews.
It is important to not mistake RestoFinisher with Howard Products’ Restor-A-Finish. The products are not connected in any way. There is no evidence the product meets the vendor’s wood restoration claims.
The corporation addresses are FedEx, Davinci Virtual Office, and a residence. These are not corporations, but virtual addresses. It is unclear if the vendor resides at the residential address. This red flag is enough to cause suspicion among consumers.
