FREMONT, Ohio (Legal Newsline) — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a lawsuit Jan. 6 against two telemarketing groups – Buckeye Impact Group LLC and Premier Design Group LLC – for allegedly misleading consumers.

 

These companies purportedly sold marketing packages to consumers for $1,000 to $1,500, alleging the consumers could work from home as Amazon affiliates. The consumers, after agreeing to the deal, would allegedly host a website that had products for sale. The companies purportedly told the consumers that if a product was sold on their website, they would receive a cut of the sale and Amazon would handle the delivery. According to DeWine’s office, the scheme was entirely fake.

 

“People were told they could make a lot of money if they put up some of their own money first,” DeWine said. “We found that just wasn’t true. People were paying hundreds or thousands of dollars and getting next to nothing in return.”

 

DeWine’s office received dozens of complaints about the companies. DeWine charges the businesses with violations of Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act as well as state and federal telemarketing requirements. DeWine seeks reimbursement for consumers and an injunction to stop any future law violations by the companies.
