Better Business Bureau of Southern Arizona is alerting consumers to StoresOnline, Inc., an online company that is mailing invitations to Southern Arizonans inviting them to a “complimentary conference” to learn how to make money using the Internet.
BBB serving Utah, where the company is based, has received 787 complaints regarding StoresOnline, and the company has an “F” rating with BBB. In addition, attorneys general in Indiana, Utah, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Oregon, North Carolina, Florida, California, and Washington have filed action against the company, accusing StoresOnline of deceptive sales and marketing practices.
StoresOnline will host “Internet Marketing Conferences” on March 2-4, at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Sierra Vista, and at the Double Tree Reid Park in Tucson. The invitation offers a free dinner valued at up to $100 for attendees.
- Consumers who plan to attend free seminars should be aware that in most cases the presenters will promote products and services that are for sale.
- StoresOnline customers are urged to carefully read all contracts and materials received prior to purchase. Products and services sold by StoresOnline are not investment education materials, and the company does not consider its products a business opportunity, or a home-based business.
- Before responding to any solicitation to attend a seminar check the company’s BBB Reliability Report at www.tucson.bbb.org, call (520)888-5353.
