Lyn was a beauty consultant who sold cosmetics door-to-door on behalf of Beauty Products Limited. Lyn approached Mabel, a recently widowed immigrant in her home. Mabel was in receipt of a disability pension because of her failing eyesight, which made her housebound. Mabel could speak only a little English but she did not read nor understand written English. Lyn knew of Mabel’s medical condition and circumstances. Lyn filled in the application form for Mabel to become a door to door beauty consultant and purchase the Starter Kit of Beauty Products for $1000. Lyn gave Mabel the impression that she was at risk of losing her disability pension, so working as a beauty consultant would ensure she had an income.
