The Better Business Bureau of Southwest Georgia is warning people to beware a promotion about a free Internet Income Training Conference to be held in Columbus.

The company is storesonline.com out of Utah, and invitations to the free conference have been mailed in South Georgia. Utah's Better Business Bureau has released reports of the company having to make changes to sales and conference methods after reviews by the attorney generals and other state agencies.

The BBB found that consumers were confused as to what they were getting involved with and paying for with the company, some investing up to $6,000 dollars into it.

"The practices have been reviewed and according to the company they've made some changes in that regard. But just the same we feel the public needs to know of the record. Beware of the activity that has gone on in the past, and get all the information that they can prior to making a decision," said Southwest Georgia Better Business Bureau President Leonard Crain.

The Better Business Bureau had close to 400 complaints about the company last year. Anyone who wants more warning information on the storesonline.com conference should call the Columbus office at 706-324-0712.
