These types of businesses prey on the naive and desperate. They should all be shut down as they are all a scam. The BBB is worthless - you can pay to get an 'A' rating and the BBB has no power in resolving conflicts.

Since time began there's always been a snake oil salesman/hustler in one form or another willing to separate people from their money selling them a bag a air and false promises. Goes back to the old phrase:"buyer be ware" America, the land of opportunity should not embrace the fact that federal government gets involved passing laws to protect people from themselves. Just be cause the person from Roseau had a sewing machine some thread and could sew two pieces of fabric together does not make that person a quality seamstress and it's obvious the company had a criteria for quality that was not adhered to.

Rule #1 - 90% of these work at home things are scams. Just like the rental income property and foreclosed homes with $0.00 down. Rule #2 - Make sure you understand what the company requires for you to do in order to get paid. No company that I know of is going to pay you full price for producing an item as a demo or sample of the work you can do. Make sure you understand what is expected of you before you committ to anything.
