A business opportunity from Crowd Sourcing International (CSI), also known as Narc That Car, claims that independent consultants can earn money by collecting car license plate sightings. But the plan may be a pyramid scheme, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns.
In a recent news story, Steve Noviello of FOX4-TV Dallas-Fort Worth sits down with the company's president to ask questions about who is paying CSI for the license plate data, and how independent consultants make money. Jeannette Kopko, spokesperson for the BBB in Dallas, warns that it's a red flag "when there's more of an emphasis on recruiting people into the organization and that's the way you would really make money."
How can prospective participants tell the difference between a genuine multi-level marketing plan and a pyramid scheme? It’s not always simple, so prospective participants should evaluate the offer carefully, and may want to consider reviewing the offer with an attorney who is familiar with business opportunities.
