    The FTC is stepping up efforts to shut down work at home scams:

    "The victims of these frauds are our neighbors ??“ people who are trying to make an honest living," said David C. Vladeck, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "Under pressure to make ends meet, they risked their limited financial resources in response to the promise of a job, an income ??“ a chance at a profitable home-based business. But these turned out to be empty promises ??“ and the people who counted on them ended up with high levels of frustration and even higher levels of debt."

    thank you very much for posting this. I am sure it will help some from getting involved with these people. that is why forums are so invaluable to all of us if we would just do our homework and research. And ask questions here on the forums. Maybe someone does have experience with the company you are thinking about joining. [​IMG]

    These are open scams expect such gov't attacks.

    Nothing against viable and legitimate home income opportunities.
