Better Business Bureau warns of magazine salespeople

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash.--  They call themselves Fresh Start Opportunities; selling magazines, but also a story. Most of the salesmen claim they are trying to raise money for college or get points towards trips.

But the company has received an "F" rating from the BBB with over one hundred filed compliants, and over half the BBB considers serious. That means people have given money with the promise of subscriptions and helping someone in need, only to get neither.

The state Attorney's General office says one of the employees for Fresh Start Opportunities was arrested last fall in connection to several robberies and burglaries.

KNDU called the number listed for Fresh Start Opportunities, but a message says the number is temporarily unavailable.
