I almost signed up with a company 5 or 6 years ago. Some guys I knew were selling it and talking it up. Something in my gut told me to hold off. So glad I did, the scam didn't take long to get caught. The bad part... not only did the clients lose their money, everyone involved was in trouble, even the staff working for the company.
I know there are some good companies out there, just trying to learn what I can so that I can help him avoid a potential misstep...should he decide to pursue that.
Thanks for the links.
