Internet orders can turn out wrong

By Robb Hicken/ chief storyteller

Catalog or Internet ordering continues to be a great way to buy merchandise. Advertisements targeting specific audiences is one of the main principles behind marketing. Get your message in front of people.

BBB received a visit from an Idaho Falls man recently who said that he’d purchased a safe from the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. They have advertising in a lot of magazines and on the Internet. The object is to sell you a safe to keep the “valuable coins” you’re investing. The advertising  shows what appears to be a “larger safe, and the valuable coins turn out to be mostly pennies,”  Bud Smith says.

Smith says he requested the larger safe, but was sent the same size of safe only at a higher price. He paid the freight charges to return the safe to the Ohio- based company. Smith says he’s a dissatisfied customer and has taken out a classified advertisement in newspapers looking for other people who might me upset with purchases form the company. World Reserve has quite a few complaints filed with the BBB, but on the other hand has shown they’ve resolved quite a few complaints.

This blog is to tell business owners that sell things online or by catalog that false advertising will get you in trouble every time. Here’s the site to help with advertising questions.

Remember one mad customer can create five potential customers to question.
