THE STORY BEHIND THE RADIO INTERVIEW

A producer at a national talk radio show recently got bit by a common scam. She signed up for a low-priced teeth whitening product on the Internet and then got hit with excessive charges on her credit card. She tried for weeks to cancel.

Producer Karen Pelland decided to turn her bad fortune into good journalism. She produced a segment on the scam for her show, Here & Now. The show is created at WBUR-FM in Boston and heard on more than 160 public radio stations across the nation.

She searched the Internet and found these two Dave Lieber Watchdog Nation reports on teeth whitening:

Trial offers are trouble: Watch out for teeth whiteners sold on the Internet

Dentists angry about non-dental teeth whitening clinics

Dave Lieber was invited on the show. When Dave talked to host Robin Young on air, they explored the producer’s smart handling of her scam. (She got her money back!) Robin and Dave also talked about many other scams popular in America and how to beat them. Do you know that the garage door repair business is beset with overcharging repairmen? That companies advertising free credit scores usually charge? That these days even middle school students are getting scammed?

Do you know why most scammers get away with it? Do you know how to prevent getting scammed? Or if you do get scammed, do you know how to get relief?
