  • Inquirers report to the BBB that the firm offers road service protection, arranges legal services for member truckers, and provides other services described in various social media and YouTube segments. Various incarnations of the company appear under the names TVC, Motor Club of America, or MCA. The company's overall program appears to include elements of Multi-Level Marketing in which participants can earn payments as well as taking advantage of the products and services provided by the company. The company or program participants (or both) appear to market the firm using YouTube videos, including some with titles like "TVC Pro Driver Scam," "MCA Scam," or other combinations of the company names followed by a a term questioning the legitimacy of the program; when the videos are viewed, the segments go on to promote the TVC/MCA program. The videos generally focus on wealth-building by participating in TVC/MCA programs or demonstrations by participants who have made money through the program. It should be noted that the testimonials posted on such social media represent the success stories of individuals who have volunteered to post such notices, but that any such testimonials on any Multi-Level Marketing site do not necessarily predict the outcome for every participant in the program. Most MLM programs require work to succeed, and any business opportunity benefits from a participant's interest, training, expertise, and attention. No one can tuly guarantee an individual's success when participating in such a program; a great deal depends upon aptitude, the marketplace, the products offered and other conditions that impact an individual's ability to become successful. Please also note that some YouTube videos may copy the content of other inspirational or motivational clips from celebrities such as Tyler Perry. This does not mean that Mr. Perry has directly endorsed the program, nor does TVC/MCA promote the video as such; the posting of such a motivational video in association with an MLM does not mean that Mr. Perry has any knowledge of the program whatsoever. It simply means that a celebrity has expressed a view concerning success and that someone associated with TVC or one of its associated businesses agrees with the sentiment enough to represent that clip under the TVC umbrella.

    At least one YouTube video identifies itself as being a training video for posting ads for potential participants in the Help Wanted or Jobs sections of Craig's List in various cities. The video details a representative's demonstration of how to post ads to recruit participants, including statements concerning potential earnings. The demonstration shows the representative posting links to an TVC/MCA "capture site" and offers tips on entering several ads through Craig's List that should generate leads. Viewers are then shown how to communicate with respondents to recruit them to the program.

    The BBB is currently trying to develop additional information concerning the company and its services, which appear to include elements of multi-level marketing programs that allow members to earn payments by recruiting other participants. The BBB has requested additional information from the company and this report will be updated when the firm provides that data.

BBB Accreditation Reviews

BBB routinely monitors its files on all Accredited Businesses to affirm that they continue to meet all BBB Accreditation Standards

BBB Accreditation Process

Not every business is eligible for BBB Accreditation. Businesses must meet, commit to and maintain the BBB Code of Business Practices (Accreditation Standards)  in order to be eligible for and maintain BBB Accreditation. The BBB Code of Business Practices represents sound advertising, selling and customer service practices that enhance customer trust and confidence in business. The Code is built on the BBB Standards for Trust, eight principles that summarize important elements of creating and maintaining trust in business.

In order to be eligible for Accreditation a business must complete an Accreditation application.

Upon receipt of a fully completed BBB Application for Accreditation, BBB staff:

  • Reviews the application
  • Researches the business
  • Verifies the information presented in the application
  • May request additional information
  • May request proof of specific information on the application
After the review and verification process, BBB will then evaluate if the business meets the BBB Code of Business Practices (Accreditation Standards)..

Once BBB has finished its evaluation, the application for BBB Accreditation is either approved or denied. If the applicant is found in compliance with the BBB Code of Business Practices it will be presented to the BBB Board of Directors, or a committee of that board, for final approval. If the application is denied, BBB will contact the applicant, indicating the BBB Standard(s) that were not met and any recourse available to the applicant.
