St. Paul, MN – Since issuing a press release on Force One Events – a Woodbury, Minnesota company ostensibly offering consumers work-at-home employment opportunities via the Internet – in September of 2009, the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) has continued to monitor the company’s claims and myriad online operations.

Based on a recent review, the BBB has determined the company is still making deceptive claims in regard to money-making opportunities they allegedly offer through the purchase of their software and training programs on various websites they operate.

“This company has a pattern of making clear promises of easy wealth, but offering scant details on how potential subscribers actually make money,” said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB. “They also change company names regularly and juggle websites, but their offer always remains the same. We dispute their claims and feel the only way anyone could make any money by signing up with them is by recruiting more people to buy these training programs. Ultimately, there is no end product or service for consumers.”

What drew the attention of the BBB in 2009, besides an unsatisfactory record due to complaints which had gone unanswered, was a reference on http://www.3hourprofits.com, one of the company’s websites – now disabled – which referred to an organization called BBB Reviews.org, a non-existent entity designed to imply an association with the Better Business Bureau. BBB Reviews.org was taken down shortly after the BBB publicized the existence of the site and disavowed any connection to it. Force One Events currently has an “F” rating due to unanswered complaints and concerns about the company’s – and their related entities – business practices.

The BBB believes that Force One Events, Inc. and company owner, Dan Miller, are doing business under a variety of names. Information in our files indicates that some of these business names have included or may include: Powerline100, IPC Progam, Click Marketing Inc., Extreme Wealth Formula, Lead Net Pro, Productive Pathways.com, Elite Sales Incentives, Elevations Group VIP and Mimzing.com. In regard to these entities, we have been able to confirm direct connections to either Dan Miller or Force One Events in some instances, but not all. Other affiliations have been alleged in customer complaints we’ve received. The BBB has requested basic information from this company but has not received a response. In a letter sent to the BBB back in January of this year, the company alleged they had previously sent information providing requested information regarding their operations. The BBB has no record of this documentation.

The most recent complaints filed against the subsidiary entity called Lead Net Pro state that the company’s software caused their computers to crash and the company has refused to provide refunds. Force One Events has refused to respond to these complaints, denying they are connected to Lead Net Pro. However, in a recent secret-shopping of Lead Net Pro, a BBB employee received several e-mailed confirmations signed by Dan Miller, owner of Force One Events.

The Better Business Bureau advises customers to be leery of any money-making offers that sound too good to be true, and provides the following tips to identify work-at- home offers. Work-at-home offers will:

Cloud-Based Virtual Phone Services Increase In Popularity

Still, for the security conscious business owner, cloud-based communications has it’s downsides seeing as how cyber security in the cloud is nonexistent in some proven cases. Furthermore, most Cloud Companies do not even know about the security holes that are in their system that can allow any computer user access to all phone data sent through their cloud-based system.

Unpublished flaws in cloud-based virtual phone systems and the software they use are rampant and the bottomline is that there is no security. This has been proven within a number of the largest RESPORGS and security holes continue to reveal themselves constantly.
