John Mccormick my new Practical Consumer Column on

I've been a consumer reporter for decades mostly related to high technology but now I have an opportunity to point out fraud and deception in everyday ads which cost consumers billion$ every year.

The first issue explains why it is dumb (really dumb!) to pay more than about $30 for an electric space heater.

I'll be covering a lot of common problems such as work-at-home and secret shoppers (good and bad), how to buy and sell gold.

Puppy mills and pet stores.
