better bay area moving forwardn. is abc 7 news. american across the country are flying at half staff tonight for general colin powell the former secretary of state as you've heard died this morning due to complications from covid-19 and the nation tonight mourns the loss of a public service pioneer colin powell the former secretary of state and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was the first black man to hold those positions. he was born in new york to jamaican immigrants and flourished in the army later. he became chairman of the joint chiefs during the george hw bush administration and the us led victory in the gulf war while highly distinguished powell's career was not without controversy. he played a key role pushing faulty intelligence before the united nations to advocate for the 2003 iraq war a moderate
6:31 pm
republican powell had friends on both sides of the aisle. not only a dear friend in the patriots. one of our great military leaders in a man of overwhelming decency. powell died this morning as we said due to complications from covid he was fully vaccinated, but also had a rare blood cancer that weakens the immune system colin powell was 84. i had the opportunity to interview colin powell at the commonwealth club back in 2012. we spent about an hour and a half together half an hour or so. before we went out into public and had a good chance to chat with him powell visited the bay area several times before and after his time as secretary of state and he was highly intelligent obviously, but it was also very warm and engaging in the time i had with him among those paying tribute to colin powell tonight is retired us army general stanley mcchrystal who i interviewed today for the commonwealth club. he had become a friend to me while i was on active duty when he was a four star. i was a more junior officer major at the time, but then when
6:32 pm
i was commanding in afghanistan, he would reach out to me as a retired general officer just to provide a hearing we think of him as a general or secretary of state. he was a class act as a human being. general mcchrystal described powell as a man who had his feet firmly planted on the ground in addition to powell mcchrystal and i discussed the situation in afghanistan as well as his new book called risk a user's guide. we turned out a 7 on your side a company which lists a san leandro addresses being accused by dozens of people of sending and billing many of them for products. they didn't order 7 on your side's michael. finney is looking into the complaints michael. accusations against nutritional ink have surged in the last few months one of those who says he was targeted is a veteran abc 7 reporter. okay, this is the youth miracle repair. that's the supposed benefit of a
6:33 pm
nutritional supplement howard hernandez received in the mail. even though he says he didn't order howard says the fountain of youth is of no interest to him, and he does not want to pay for it. same thing happened to elizabeth roman a bridgeport, connecticut. i just received the package in the mail just a package with two different supplements. um, and i had no idea where they came from. elizabeth received two charges your credit card each for under $8 the good news federal regulators. say if you receive something you didn't order there's no obligation to pay for it. my question was how did you get my account to begin with i didn't please this order. then that was pretty disturbing the better business bureau has identified the company as nutritional inc. the bureau has received more than 80 complaints about the company more than half since august nutritional inc. lists, its address as in san leandro the company appears to be renting a private mailbox from the ups store there.
6:34 pm
it's not known how nutritional ink chooses who descent its products to but one is a familiar face to abc 7 news viewers long time. porter david louie the package he received had a nutritional ink return address inside the package not a nutritional supplement but earbuds, but this is a bizarre. this is a bizarre situation. kids came in a white box similar to what you might see with an apple product. yeah, that makes me suspicious that it's not an apple product because there is no apple branding at all. no copyright no notice. so why would nutritional ink send david earbuds the company's own website features nothing but nutritional products. we reached out several times last week two nutritional ink customer service. it said someone would get back to us, but we have yet. to hear back the federal trade commission says it seen people send out products just to get tracking codes. those tracking codes can then be
6:35 pm
used to publish verified but fake reviews on sites such as ebay and amazon those caught in the middle want to stay clear of this whether they're getting earbuds or nutritional supplements. i don't want anything to do that. you know, i i don't know what's in them. and and frankly, i don't want to know so there's mystery here that i'm hoping michael can get down to well, the bbb has givenn nutritional ink and f rating the bottom line. you're not obliged to pay for anything. you didn't order and be sure to shut down your credit card, which everyone in this story has done. be careful and let me know if this has happened to you. amazing. all right. thank you. michael very much. we're coming up next they were pioneers of lesbian rights this lgbtq history month. we look back on the lives of phyllis lion and del martin. how organizations are working to preserve the san francisco couples home of six decade

6:40 pm
they started circulating in 1956. the latter was the first national lesbian publication in the us and one of the first magazines to publish statistics on lesbians and most of the united states the latter was illegal because the content talked about same-sex relationships. but that didn't stop phyllis and dell and 1960 the hella convention here in san francisco. that brought a lot of women together to organize to learn together to just beat each other. this was really groundbreaking. this was not a time when it was very common to have large scale gatherings. list spoke with us in 1966 about those conventions in this interview not seen in more than half a century the membership restricted only to lesbians now is restricted only to women. in other words can be 21 years. we don't inquire into their sexual orientation if they want to become a member. is it more or less taken for granted? hi by the very nature of the organization. it's i would say 99% lesbian the dob as it was called had
