    Evidently there are at least two companies of this name in the Front Range area - one which is a subscription and telemarketing company which is evidently the one you are talking about, another which appears to be an independent bookstore specializing in off-brand and self-published works which may well be independent and unaffiliated with the first one - could not find details on any connection or lack thereof.


    Anyone, the one you are apparently talking about has an F rating from Lakewood BBB - and you REALLY have to work at it to get a BBB F rating, because there are companies with hundreds of complaints with A ratings !

    Also a 2013 article from the Denver Post on them as a fraud organization - article links here -


    https://www.denverpost.com/2013/05/01...


    Also prominently listed in online scam/fraud report sites like this - evidently also running as Subscription Solutions and PublicationsatMileHigh.com and other names:

    So - like with a great percentage of this sort of firm, I would assume most likely a scam, pyramid scheme, credit card phishing operation, or the like. Here are a few previous similar questions about another similar company, listing the risks and the unlikehood of it being legit - also a few warnings from the FTC on this sort of work-at-home operation - it is pretty much a given that work-at-home schemes advertised in a paper or on the web or via "seminars" are almsot certainly shady in one way or another. Always consider - if their scheme is so great, then why are they willing to pay YOU to be involved - why are they not raking in all the "big bucks" themselves or off on a beach in Bali relaxing on the millions they made from the "opportunity".
