Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: Their response is generic, which I received on the phone, and did not address my complaint about the discrepancy between my worthless result (stating I am 100% Asian with a big circle around Asia and their claims to what the test will reveal in their advertisements and on the show America's Next Top ModelAlso, how they do not (but should) state as a disclaimer that there will be little to no new genetic information discoveries made and matches for people who aren't of apparent mixed ethnicity and whose families are not from USA [redacted]

This is deceiving the publicThey know that this is wrong This is why the world is concerned with "Fake News"You cannot trace your ancestry to 80ADSomeone is making these up and posting themThey need to stop thisNot me!
