Bogus home-based Internet "business coaching services" are the latest target of the The Federal Trade Commission. It seems dozens of companies have been pushing a program that claims to help consumers create their own businesses, but that "consumers rarely, if ever, make any money as a result of the program or end up with a viable business of any kind," according to a complaint filed by the FTC.

Consumers are counseled to beware of companies with names like Ivy Capital, Fortune Learning and the Enrich Wealth Group. Not only are their program substantially less than promised, but "consumers who continue to make refund requests are often berated and insulted," the FTC says in its federal complaint.
