Additional Information

Starting December 2012 the BBB received several calls alleging non delivery of materials by Preston Lord Enterprises  after the initial payments were sent to the company. The BBB asked the consumers to provide a written copy of their disputes.

Preston Lord Enterprises responded to complaints filed with the BBB stating that the materials were sent to the consumers. Those complaints were closed as resolved.  Additional complaints alleged that after the initial package was received a new letter disclosed that one had to continue paying for more leads at half of the initial start-up fee.  The company responded by referring to the terms set out in the company letters and advises customers to read carefully what was provided.

The BBB advises consumers seeking any work at home jobs to ask the program sponsor to list every step of the job and to ask if the pay is based on client response (commission).  Additional information about the expenses incurred, including supplies, additional fees should also obtained.
