Unscrupulous dog rescue groups

A reader writes: Dog rescue organizations are wonderful if they operate properly. Some groups are only in it for the $$$. They get a tax exempt status & are free to cherry pick dogs from the shelters.This is even better than backyard breeding ! Most take cash only. They are Unregulated or licensed (at least here in Phoenix). Some of the unethical groups are money making scams dealing in sick animals. My experience Read More »

Diamond settlement

A reader asks: Could you do an investigation on what happened with the DeBeers Diamond class action settlement from several years ago? I have been checking into it, and it appears to have been nothing more than a big scam for lawyers to make money. It appears that out of the 295 million dollar settlement, the only people to have been paid are the attorneys at an amount of over 70 million dollars for "fees". I know many Read More »

Has your property been sold in the storage wars?

A reader in Harrisburg, Pa., asks: Have you seen these TV shows where items in storage units are auctioned off? I'm appalled at these TV shows preying on other people's misfortunes. From what I understand of the Pennsylvania laws on storage auctions, any money over the fees owed is is supposed to go back to the unit's owner but they need to ask for it. People are not aware of their rights. Read More »

Over 154 members were banished this week. We had our homes, health care, income and rights taken away with the signing of pen. What we have discovered is pointing to corruption, greed and scandal. ... The Bureau of Indian Affairs has turned Read More »

Nursing Home abuse and neglect

Send undercover workers in to show how residents are cursed, physically and psychologically abused by refusal of basic care. Residents that are unable to feed themselves are starved, the plea for assistance goes unanswered. This is nationwide and is swept under the rug because elders are not revered in this country!

The difference in health insurance premiums for rural and urban

Rural Americans are really getting a terrible, unaffordable deal under Obamacare. (And I supported the ACA). This would be an easy story to do since all you need to do is enter a few facts into esurance.com and then "edit" the zip code to see what the same family would pay in rural vs urban areas. These are my facts: Premium increase of $633 per month under Obamacare. Facts: Family of three in Colorado, zip code 81321. Read More »

Unethical Debit Card Minimum Amount Purchase.

Merchants throughout the New York City (and I assume throughout the country) continue to improperly set minimum amounts to consumers who wish to pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit card. I have been refused to make a purchase on a product (or products) because it does not meet the minimum amount needed to use a debit card. The minimum amount varies from store to store. Only problem is that practice is clearly against Read More »

Monopoly Of Auto Insurance Rates Ripoff

Auto premiums have been skyrocketing for years. If one collects data on the number of accidents along with the number of autos within an area an investigation is needed. In my area less than 1% result in accidents. Even if each accident resulted in both autos being totaled it shows huge profits. I've never been able to review an annual report but I've also never seen an investigative story on this topic. I suspect Read More »

Dermatologists overcharging....

When you go to some ( most) dermatologists they walk into the exam room and immediately spray CO2 on a spot on your arm or someplace. Most insurance companies and Medicare consider this "surgery" and it immediately increases your bill by $200-300. This is wrong and why dermatologists are in the top of highest paid specialties. This needs to stop and I haven't found a specialist that doesn't do this, particularly in Read More »
