FTC Axes Business Opportunity Scheme

Today the Federal Trade Commission announced that U.S. and Canadian consumers lost more than $7 million due to eighteen elusive marketers selling work-at-home opportunities. The FTC banned those marketers from selling business or work-at-home opportunities under court orders.

According to the article, these orders, along with court orders against fourteen other people and companies named in the FTC lawsuit, resolve charges that the defendants conned consumers into thinking they could make money by referring merchants in their area to a non-existent money-lending service. Many victims affected by this scam were seniors with limited income and savings.

Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection was quoted as saying “The defendants tricked people into purchasing worthless ‘business opportunities’, and manipulated credit card system to hide their tracks. We’re pleased the court stopped this deception, which harmed many older people just trying to make a living.”

The defendants falsely claimed consumers would earn up to $3,000 per month by referring small businesses to the defendants to obtain loans. After consumers paid up to $499 to buy the business opportunity, the defendants told them that, to succeed, they had to buy sales leads that cost tens of thousands of dollars but turned out to be worthless.

Nevada Electric Highway Joint Initiative News

In June, the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy and local utility company Nevada Energy announced the new Nevada Electric Highway Joint Initiative to promote electric vehicle transportation on U.S. Route 95, which connects Reno with Las Vegas.

Businesses and government entities along U.S. Route 95 or in close proximity are being asked to host charging stations. These sites will be chosen based on their cost-effectiveness, location and sustainability.

Once a charging station is approved it will feature one fast charger and two Level 2 EV chargers. The stations are scheduled to open by the end of the year. They will be joining a network of EV stations across the state.

According to a recent announcement from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy, the joint initiative received funding from the Energy Department’s State Energy Program. It also stated that “EVs could play a key role in the future of sustainable transportation in Nevada.”
