The Better Business Bureau reports on members and non-members. Membership in the BBB is voluntary and members must meet and maintain Better Business Bureau standards. If a company is a member it will be indicated in the report. ***************************************************************** The Bureau has sent two requests for basic information to this company but, as of today, there has been no response.

According to our files, five complaints have been registered with the Bureau during the past three years. Two complaints have been closed as settled and three complaints have been closed as unsettled because the consumers were dissatisfied with the company's response. The company requires a registration fee of $25.00, that is a non-refundable processing cost. Although, there is a stated money back guarantee, if the participant does not earn the money that is expected. The participant must be aware of the one or two year guarantee program, which mean there must be full participation for one or two years before a refund is provided.

In May 1995, the Better Business Bureau sent this firm a letter requesting the names of ten people who have earned money working out of their homes, as well as the names of ten companies that have hired home workers through this firm. Universal Lists responded by stating, "We do not have names or addresses nor authorization to give these out".

Our records indicate that this firm has failed to substantiate its advertised claims upon request by the Better Business Bureau.

Our file experience shows that the firm has an unsatisfactory record with the Better Business Bureau.

BBB GENERAL INFORMATION -Work at Home Promotions When responding to an advertisement for working at home, for example, stuffing envelopes, you will generally receive - for a fee - instructions as to how to place similar ads in other publications, also offering work at home opportunities. Allegedly, you will get paid for each response you receive and send back to the original company.

Many such work at home schemes have been put out of business by postal authorities, (Work at home offers are also illegal in some states.) The Postal Service additionally advises that envelope stuffing is a highly mechanized process, eliminating the possibility of the need for home workers. Other work at home promotions may involve assembling crafts or pillows. You should be aware, however, that advance fees for the necessary materials are often required, that crafts may take longer to assemble than represented, and that the company will pay only for finished products it deems acceptable.
