New warning on door-to-door magazine sales

The warnings about magazine sales companies keep coming. The latest is about Trinity Public Relations, Inc., which the Better Business Bureau in Charlotte says is sending door-to-door sales crews in the area.

The Florida attorney general shut down the company in 2005 after racking up 68 BBB complaints from 2003 to 2005. The company, owned by James and Lourdes Davis, moved its operations to Charlotte after that.

The BBB says 184 complaints against Trinity were filed from 2005 through 2007. Its troubles didn't stop there. In May 2007, North Carolina's attorney general filed a judgment against Trinity Public Relations, Inc., Trinity Public Relations, LLC, James Andrew Davis and Lourdes Jimenez Davis preventing them from owning, managing, participating in or operating any business in N.C. that offers or sells magazines. Trinity also had to cancel contracts with consumers who complained to the attorney general's office and provide refunds. The BBB gives the company an F rating.
