A GRIEVING family today told of their distress after a letter offering a “penis extension” was sent to their dead mother.
Annie Cairns, died last September, aged 87, and her bereaved children were horrified when, on first anniversary of losing their mum, the Regal Health advertisement dropped on to the doormat.
The letter, addressed to Mrs Cairns, offered a penis enlargement “naturally, without surgery, pumps or exercise – guaranteed or your money back!”.
It also stated: “I’m so sure you’ll be thrilled by what this wonder product will do for you.”
Mrs Cairn’s daughter, Ann, 63, of Ringwood Square, Red House, said: “I don’t know how this has happened.
“It says Mrs Cairns twice on the letter.
“I don’t know whether it’s a scam or not because they ask for debit card details on the order form.”
Now, Ann, her brother Robert and sister Veronica, who all live in Red House, are looking for answers from the company as to why the letter was sent out addressed to their mother in the first place.
“I would like to think we would at least get an apology from them,” added Ann.
“I think they must just have lists of people on computers and they send it out to them but the point is she was a female getting offered penis treatment.”
Ann’s friends have also expressed their disgust about the incident and back her calls for answers.
Ann said: “We’ve spoken to a few people about it and they think it’s just awful and something should be done about it.
“It was my mother’s anniversary as well which just made it worse,” added Ann.
The Echo tried to contact Regal Health on several occasions but were unable to get a response.
