A word of warning: adverts

I believe sometimes adverts appear at the bottom of posts in free blog plans such as this one of mine.

Be advised that last time I clicked on one, it was a scam. I inadvertently ‘subscribed’ to a range of products, none of which worked, from a company (in the States) with no point of contact, who sent me things I hadn’t ordered, relentlessly, once a fortnight. I had to discontinue my credit card to stop them (which in itself took nearly a month).

I have today seen something similar on another blogsite, which reminded me to warn you, my valued readers: these ads are not on the level.

A good question would be why wordpress permits them. But as there is no point of contact for wordpress any more either, it is a question I am unable to ask.

    All the ads on my site are legit and show up through a WordPress program. As for the crappy ads, I have no clue where they come from.
