I finally started the article I have been planning to write for over a year. Every two or three days another comment comes in on the company detailing further bad acts. Over and over people tell stories of failed treatments, closed doors, lost money, and injuries. I have been called by Jeff Nourse. I have spoken to employees and customers. An attorney general called me to ask what I knew about the company’s practices. A local Portland television station profiled a victim of Pure Med Spa and called to get my input. A financier in New York called because the CEO and CFO had contacted him to borrow money. Basic research led him to this site and to me. Along the way Pure Med changed to Brite Smile, and the stories continued. More money lost. More people harmed.
It is time to get the word out that this company is a public health hazard. When another story popped into my inbox tonight, I stopped reading my book, pulled out the computer, and started working on the story. The words are flowing. I am going to write about this disaster of a company who steals its customers’ money, disfigures and scars their bodies, and runs rampant over its employees. Then I am going to submit the story to every major woman’s magazine in this country. Hopefully one of them will realize that this story is a big one, and that in order to protect consumers, the story needs to be told so that no one gives them another penny and nobody else gets hurt.
Some people have asked me Why aren’t these people in jail? They are crooks! They hurt me! They stole my money! Why indeed. Something needs to happen to stop them before someone else gets hurt. If we can’t jail them, at least I can try and stop them with my words.
