Better Buyer Beware

Greetings Happy People,

In these economic times, we have people that are going through hard challenges.

Whether it is by way of layoffs, downsizing, or anything else, there are folks that are feeling the crunch. Many of them are hoping for opportunities to not only get out of this funk, but come out better than before.

In the same breath, there are also other people that are taking advantage of other's misfortunes. Some are there to help while others are there to make a fast buck by scamming people.

There are people I know that have been down this road before. Some have become successful in their ventures while others were left taken for a ride. The question is how can one be sure about getting involved with any venture that sounds a little too good to be true?

Well, the answer I have for you is to check out the references. Before you leap into a deal that sounds sweet on the surface, go to the different authority agencies and ask about these businesses. No one is going to fault you for being a beware buyer.

How does one go to these agencies? Well, I can provide you with the following links that will help you out:

Better Business Bureau

Federal Trade Commission

U.S. Attorney General's office

Any State Attorney General's office
(example - the one for Nevada is

Any State Secretary of State's office
(example - the one for Nevada is

or just for the heck of it, the Federal Bureau of Investigation

These are just a few links that you can check out if you are unsure about a company. I have used these on occasion and they rarely disappoint me.

So if you are in a rough spot and are wondering about different compaines that offer you a deal that sounds too good to be true, please feel free to check out the references in depth. You have a right to know.

After all, it could be the difference between your ride to success or just being taken for one.

That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.
