Got this solicitation letter, and knew it didn't smell right. Like Moma alway said, if it seems to good to be true, then it IS. JGB Enterprises target and rip off small businesses. Before any newbie business owners calls the 800 number on the "Award Guaratee", check out these web sites:

Yeah, I agree Doug. My parents did a good job of pointing out these type schemes to me at an early age, and being an appraiser I'm automatically skeptical. <_< But as intact homes and family financial teachings are becoming scarce, sometimes people just have to learn the hard way. I've never fallen for magic beans like this, but have made some small purchases that didn't turn out to be what I though it would. Gotta watch what you buy on Ebay. :redface:
