These white teeth aren’t smiling

Beware a web ad for “celebrity white teeth” for “only 99 cents.” I did, giving my credit card number. I got the tooth paste shortly and four weeks later a charge of $170, claiming I automatically had joined “The White Teeth Club.”

Bank of America Mastercard has a fraud division that took the case and is doing a follow-up. Be careful. Ed Shaughnessy
