Last week I received a press release from the OFT (Office of Fair Trading). Their PR firm sent it to me to raise the profile of Scams Awareness Month.
The PR firm got me interested by claiming that the OFT in collaboration with local Trading Standards Services are going to tackle Work From Home Scams, which sounds like a good thing to me. Unfortunately when I visited their website for the ‘Scamnesty’ (as they’ve called it) and followed it to their list of common scams and then the one and only page on work from home scams, it seemed woefully inadequate.
So I’ve decided to add a Business Opportunity Scams section to Business Opportunities and Ideas. After all if I write just two pages of useful content I’ll be 100% ahead of the OFT! Better yet, if you dear reader contacts me and report any home business/business opportunity scams, I’ll write them up and together we can produce a far more useful resource that can help people looking for business opportunities avoid being scammed.
If you know of any other useful website that help people avoid business opportunity scams please either contact me or mention them in the comment section. Thanks!Email This Post
