I am going to take issue with the statement of being "deliberately
Unless I am missing something, the watch states it has '50 m water
resistance' and the website for the particular watch actually defines
what this means, how is that fraudulent?
Now if you felt mislead by the documentation that came with the watch
and the fact that you had to dig for the definition on the website added
to this feeling of being mislead, I would feel fine with you stating
this, but "deliberately fraudulent" is not a proper choice of words in
So maybe some clarification and rewording would make this work much better.
