"I'm priviledged to side with him against you if that's what it takes."
I'm not concerned about what you do. If you want to side with someone who would rip off a woman dying of cancer then by all means do so. I can appreciate the psychological impact that had on the woman and I wont make excuses for his actions. Saul should know full well the importance of a postive mindset for the body to heal itself and that in her poor state of health the frustration of being cheated out of thousands of dollars would only hasten her demise.
I just did a quick internet search and found yet another example of Saul taking someones money and not delivering. In retrospect I am fortunate this didn't happen to me because I waited months after I paid for him to send my generator, he always claimed he was waiting for parts.

During March 2007
I purchased an Omega III Steam Sauna from Dr. Saul Pressman at PlasmaFire International (http://www.plasmafire.com). The full balance was paid up-front and I was told that she would receive the unit shortly.
Following several months spent awaiting the sauna's arrival I contacted PlasmaFire and was told that the unit was still under construction. Again I was left waiting, assuming that it would arrive within a reasonable amount of time.
After several more months I attempted to contact PlasmaFire again. This time I was told not only that the unit was still not ready but that my payment would not be refunded because it had already been spent. I was left with little in the way of options and was, once again, told that the unit would be ready within the next few months.
It has now been more than two years since my initial purchase, and I have not received the sauna nor have I been unable to recover my investment.

August 2007 we purchased and Omega III Ozone Generator and Sauna package ($7,000.00) from Plasmafire International. In his correspondence Dr. Saul Pressman indicated that we would have to pay up front for the equipment and it would be shipped to us once it was manufactured. Within a few weeks the ozone generator was delivered and we were told the sauna cabinet was delayed.
Weeks went by and still no cabinet, Pressman said the person making the cabinets in California had a mild heart attack
but he was on the mend and production would start again. We were also told that once Pressman received the order at his office/shop in British Columbia he would be heading out to Alberta to deliver our cabinet along with product for other customers.
Now going into February of 2008 and still no cabinet on the horizon and many more excuses from Pressman, we decided to request our money back ($3,500.00) and in Pressman's last e-mail communication to us, he said that the delays were unfortunate, but he would refund our money. It is now September of 2009, my wife passed away in July of 2008 and still no refund.
It was months after my wife's passing before I could emotionally pull this together and start even thinking about Pressman's disservice to us. However in honour of my wife's courageous battle with colon cancer I decided I could not let this Shylock take advantage of people when they are at their lowest and experiencing their worst nightmares. The least I could do was to continue pursuing the recovery of the money. My Lawyer sent a letter to Pressman and I've instigated court action as well, I'm sure to no one's surprise he's yet to respond.
It's not even a matter of the money anymore; it's a matter of principle. People like Pressman are feeding off of the innocent, yet they present themselves as experts in their field and legitimate business people who have our best interest and well-being at heart, nothing can be further from the truth from Pressman, he's a crook! He's got $3,500.00 of ours and I've also read other complaints referring to the same type of schemes; so one has to wonder if he's even reporting this phantom income to the Canada Revenue Service or the IRS in the USA, a pretty good deal if at least 50% of your income is not taxed.
