Travel clubs accused of violating consumer protection laws

Several interrelated companies have been accused of violating Ohio's consumer protection laws. According to a lawsuit that was filed by the state's Attorney General, the group of companies used deceptive business practices when they sold travel club memberships to their customers. Furthermore, it was suggested that when customers tried to cancel their memberships, the companies did not honor their cancellation policies.

Avoiding small business legal mistakes in Ohio

Many small business owners make errors that could potentially lead to the failure of their businesses and significant personal liability for business debts. It is important for small business owners to be aware of the common errors they might make in order to take steps to avoid them.

Qualifying for a small business loan

Some small companies in Ohio may be able to qualify for Certified Development Company/504 loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration as long as they meet certain requirements. This type of debt financing may be used to expand or improve a company's operations through the purchase of real estate other than rental properties, equipment or another approved business asset.

Pitfalls to avoid with online business opportunities

Starting an Internet business is something that many Ohio residents have considered, and tales of billionaires barely old enough to shave can be compelling. However, the rules of commerce do not magically disappear because transactions are completed online, and virtual businesses must pay their bills and win customers just like their brick-and-mortar counterparts. Any individual thinking about paying for a business opportunity would be wise to remember the principle of caveat emptor, but this is especially true of online ventures.
