Here are some red flags that may signal a questionable seminar promoter.
Is the offer time sensitive?
Do the promoters hype-up the program but provide little detail?
Are representatives reluctant to answer questions, or give evasive answers?
Are local business people or experts indorsing the program?
Can the promoters provide testimonials with contact information?
Does the business have a satisfactory status with the Better Business Bureau?
Is little time is giving to read a lengthy contract.
Taking the time to research a company before making purchase can help avoid a lot of time and frustration. Most legitimate seminar businesses are more than happy to provide descriptions of their programs before a purchase is made. Ask to see data on the percent of program participants who actually achieve the promoters claim. Read all contracts carefully before signing anything and get all promises or claims in writing.
