BBB Warns Public About "Seminar Squeeze"

BBB wants to alert consumers to the secrets of the seminar squeeze. Many seminar presenters will promote self-improvement or home-based businesses(including real estate buying and selling). Many consumers find the pay-off isn't as promised and they can't recoup their costs.

Be wary of promotional materials or sales pitches that claim: 
· You can earn big money fast
· The opportunity is offered for a short time 
· The deal is a "sure thing" that will deliver for years 
· You'll reap money working part time or at home
· You'll be coached each step of the way to success
· The program worked miraculously for others

Here are tips to avoid getting hit by the seminar pitch:
· Don't be rushed into buying anything at a seminar. Investigate the business-Check with experts and BBB before spending your money.
· Be cautious about purchasing from anyone who is reluctant to answer questions 
· Ask for the company's refund policy.Get this in writing.

Taking precautions before you invest is a more effective way to safeguard your money than trying to get a refund after the investment's been made.
