If I'm not mistaken this then puts them under the rule of business opportunity.
A business opportunity is one where:
1. A seller solicits someone to enter into a new business. |
2. A prospect makes a required payment.
3. The seller represents that they, or someone they |
recommend, will do any of the following:
A. Provide locations for the use or operation of devices
paid for by the buyer.
B. Provide existing or potential outlets, accounts, or
customers for the buyer's goods or services. Here the FTC rule
specifically refers to Internet outlets, accounts, and customers.
What are your thoughts on these types of offers?
