Warning!!! This is a post about scams. It looks real, many people would believe what they are reading and order the product.

Richard, thanks for the discussion. My mother and I have been scammed in October of 2008. We were getting a handicapped bathroom put in for me. Well the man took our bathtub out and our money and we haven't seen him since. We are now trying to find help to have a new bathroom installed. I wash at the kitchen sink, only because I can't do stairs yet. Best of all that was are only bathroom. My mother goes down cellar to wash at the sink down there. Thank God our relatives live close she goes there to showeer. The man left and even took all our copper tubing to are washing and dryer too! No one is able to locate him. It has been said he hads done this to at least 25 people around town here…Debe

When I hear things like that (which I do far too often on TV), I get livid. I cannot even begin to imagine how people can be so rotten. But I know there are some that are. My heart goes out to you. I hope they catch the rat and make him pay. Most of us have enough to deal with without having things like that thrust on us. Hope you can get someone to help you get things back in shape quickly.

Our world today is a scary place, isn't it? Scams every way you turn. It really pays to be extremely cautious about everything we do. Very cleverly done.

That is so clever! And so very true. We want a cure so bad that we believe anything that sounds good. This is a great wakeup call for us.

I read this article. Very interesting and informative. Thanks for posting this. Just goes to show that you need to watch what you are doing and ask your doctors before taking anything over the counter or what is offered by an ad.
