Looking for a job or to earn extra income? Ever thought about starting your own business? Buying into a business opportunity that makes big claims about what you can earn might sound like the answer. But don’t sign up just yet.
Learn about your rights and the seller’s responsibilities under the FTC’s Business Opportunity Rule, and questions to ask that can help you avoid a rip-off.
Even legitimate business opportunities involve risk. For example, if you’re considering buying a franchise, you’ll want to find out more about how to shop for a franchise opportunity, the obligations of a franchise owner, and questions to ask before you invest.
