Avoid Internet business Opportunity Scams that cost consumers thousands.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich warns consumers that internet business opportunities that sound too good to be true usually are. In most cases, the consumer is out thousands of dollars and left with a business that generates no profits. Brnovich says if you are being pressured into investing in something without time to do research, walk away. Also, don’t pay money to make money. Legitimate businesses offer to pay you for your services. Scammers want you to pay them. Triple check the reputation of a business before becoming involved. Online business scammers frequently change their names, so beware of companies without an established track record of success. Online businesses promising a “No Risk Refund Policy” are red flags. This is a common term fraudsters use to assure potential victims and pressure them into making a quick decision. And always seek a second opinion, such as a business lawyer or another trusted entity. If you believe you have been the victim of consumer fraud, contact the Attorney General’s Office.
