Description

A San Diego company advertises enticing but expensive "hair replacement systems". Only these hair replacement systems turn out to be nothing more than cheap wigs stuck on customers' heads with super glue. It's a scheme that generates alot of money and consumer complaints. KGTV investigates and finds the man behind this scheme has quite a past. (June 23, Aug. 25, Dec. 22, 1995)
