How To Spot Possible Fraud

How To Spot Fraud

Jeremy Johnson of IWorks has been accused of marketing fraud.  The Federal Trade Commission has alleged that Johnson’s firm which promised to help its subscribers obtain government grants failed to disclose the monthly fees of the service or provide customers with an opportunity to opt out of the program.

Johnson and IWorks amassed approximately 275 million dollars.  These funds were used to fund Johnson’s luxurious lifestyle.  Johnson attempted to cover-up these crimes by his numerous charitable actions.

A lesson for us all is to be wary of offers that are too good to be true.  Before agreeing to do business, be sure to carefully conduct due diligence and research so that you are not a victim of fraud.
