Exclamation Tooth whitening ads are a scam

I just wanted to give a heads up about one of the google ads that pop up on ours as well as many other web sites. Its the one with the nasty teeth that are turned white by some easy cheap means. I'm sure you have seen them. they offer free trial of the product, you only have to pay shipping and handling.
I fell for that offer back in June when I had hit my year of no smoking. I just wanted to try a "good" tooth whitener as a sort of gift to myself.
Well, almost 5 months and I don't know how many calls to them and my credit card company, I'm still getting erroneous charges from them and other "health" company's for services I never signed up for. I finally today had to close my credit card account and block it from any more charges. I decided that was the only way to stop them.
Please if you see that ad ignore it, tell your friends and family to ignore it. It is a scam that is a mess to get out of. The names are Dazzle White and Easy White. Those are the ones they used when I signed up anyway. The ads even have the ol "as seen on Oprah" hook on them.
There is another one called premium white pro all the same company and the same scam

you probably just saved some one from the torture you just went
through from sleezy companies.

but there are 4 ads for tooth whiting products at the bottom
of the page. lol.

I think we all saw it coming!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Now, there is one that my mom ordered for my dad(he is a smoker) and it ended up working amazingly. It was the one made my some single mom. It takes a lot to do, but my dad did go from smoker mouth to white teeth.

Thanks very much for the warning, though!

Tell your mom to keep an eye on her credit card statement. They end up charging over $50 a month for the product and when you cancel, then it switches to some health company charging for things you never get.
My husband ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut on line. He clicked on a pop-up for a coupon for the pizza. The next month I had charges for some shoppers club membership that would recur every month. Took me forever to get that one straightened out too.
