BBB cautions consumers to watch out for a business that is deceptively charging fees to use BBB complaint resolution services.
OnlineBusinessScams.com is contacting consumers who were victims of work-at-home or business opportunity offers. The company claims they can help the consumer recover the money they lost. Consumers from at least 20 states have reported to BBB they were charged an upfront fee ranging from $1,500 to $18,000 – usually a percentage of the lost funds - for assistance.
Consumers have informed BBB that, after paying the fee, they are instructed to send OnlineBusinessScams.com a letter of complaint about the work-at-home or business opportunity that victimized them. OnlineBusinessScams.com then returns the complaint back to the consumer with an envelope addressed to BBB which they are to mail.
