July 5, 2012- The Central California Better Business Bureau would like to issue a warning to consumers nationwide about Home Works of Bakersfield, CA. This company has 12 complaints in the past 12 months and has an "F" rating.
Based on consumer complaints, this company is an internet based business selling medical billing software which consumers are supposed to be able to use to create a home based business. The software comes at a charge of $199.00 plus tax, shipping and handling. Once you receive the software you are given instructions to contact customer service for set-up. Complaints received by your BBB allege that the software does not work, the customer tech support is not available and they cannot obtain refunds. The address at 4450 California, Ste. K-175 is a mail drop.
Because this is an internet business, we have had complaints from unhappy customers in FL, SC, MI, MA, OK, NC, NE, TX and PA.
Tips for consumers:
* Check on the company with your BBB, BEFORE you do business with anyone that you do not currently have a business relationship. INVESTIGATE BEFORE YOU INVEST.
* If you have done business with a company and are having a problem that you have not been able to resolve yourself, please contact us to file a complaint at www.cencal.bbb.org
* If you are tempted by an offer, shop around before you make a decision
* Above all else, if it sounds too good to be true, you can bet it probably is.
