Lincoln Heritage Funeral Advantage and Their Obnoxious Sales Tactics

Unless you like pushy salespeople showing up at your door unannounced, you probably do not want to send anything in to this outfit requesting more information in response to the junk mail you receive from them. A week or so ago my wife received something in the mail from Lincoln Heritage Funeral Advantage and thought […]

Doctor Oz Goes After Fraudulent Advertisers

My wife is a big Dr. Oz fan. She’s been watching his show for a while and she never misses an episode. Although my wife and I seldom agree when it comes to what’s worth watching on TV, I do sit and watch the Dr. Oz show with her once in a while. What I […]
