Scams update

I have previously highlighted the prevalence on blogs of adverts for products that are scams, and specified one or two examples, the most recent being for Finitro Forte. Well the ads for Finitro have all disappeared although the company web site is still there, and still making the same claims that the Advertising Standards Authority have forbidden them from using. The site shows another identifying characteristic of these scam sites, which is that nowhere on the site can you find a contact phone number, despite a picture of a smiling young lady wearing a telephone headset.

But even better, nowhere now can I find any ads for any of these scam products at all, though again their web sites are still out there. I assume that Google, and the other companies that have processed these ads have had many complaints, and have finally taken appropriate action. And not before time.
