CONSUMER ALERT: Be Wary Of Potential Teeth Whitening Scams

What's one of the easiest ways to improve your appearance and self esteem at the same time? If you answered "teeth whitening", you're correct. That being said, it's important to find the right product for you without spending too much. The problem with this is that I've noticed a number of rather questionable sites out there promoting professional teeth whitening kits for little or no cost, which also pull you into continuity programs you probably didn't know existed. I took the time to read the fine print on one such site and found that while you may get your "free trial" for under $2.00, the resulting charge if kept beyond the trial period was over $70.00

For example, if you search for anything about teeth whitening you're likely to see a number of sponsored links about some teeth whitening trick discovered by a local mom. The only trick involved is how they get people to fork over their credit card details for a relatively small shipping cost, only to eventually slam you with charges for products that you might very well not even receive. These sites all look the same, and feature the same reused images, testimonials, reviews, and point to the same products. While I can't vouch for any of the products themselves or their effectiveness, you can CLICK HERE for a truly legitimate site that features reviews of these products.

Some things to watch for are the counters that seem to indicate that you only have a set amount of time to get their offers. They count all the way down to zero, and then absolutely nothing happens. Big surprise. I'll also tell you that these pages are ridiculously hard to navigate away from, as when you try to close the window a live chat window opens where they pitch you on paying sometimes less than $2.00 for shipping on the product. Another one lets you choose what shade of teeth you want, how quickly you want to achieve those results, and how long you want them to last. You then enter your ZIP code and it will tell you that there are only 11 free trials left in your city. Here in Lexington, KY that might make sense, but when I used the ever popular 90210 ZIP code I got the same result. Oh my, only 11 trials for Beverly Hills, CA? Many of them use celebrity images as well to give you the impression that the stars are getting their pearly whites from these products.

Another sketchy aspect is that of fake reviews. One even had a post by a man asking the question "does this work for men too?". Really? What makes this stand out as dishonest is the fact that there is absolutely nowhere on the page to post a comment, and no "contact us" form either. In a lot of cases they'll either only review their products, or if they include other ones then they will obviously give them poor reviews.
