Sue McConnell Better Business BureauSue McConnell, president of the Better Business Bureau in Cleveland discussed three scams to be on the lookout for during the month of November. One of the scams was a “30-Day Success Plan” which is a get rich fast scam where a person would buy into the company at different levels, and the only way for that person to make money is to distribute fliers, which they had to pay for, and try to recruit other people. The second scam was a Jenny B Utah Marketing firm that would send a woman gift cards congratulating them on their pregnancy. The gift cards were for baby products, where shipping was more than the products so the discounts were pointless and the products they received were poorly made, making them not worth the money. The last scam McConnell told listeners to be aware of are social media coupon scams. An ad will appear on your webpage of a brand name product at a discount price and once a person clicks the link, their computer would be exposed to malware, which could access their personal information.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about Ford Motors committing to investing one billion dollars to Ohio assembly plants in new product lines, facility upgrades, and more.
