Preston Lord Enterprises Scam

Preston Lord Enterprises has been involved for years in an envelope-stuffing work-at-home business opportunity scam. Tens of thousands of people have lost money to this scam. Action has finally been taken against this company and its owner. All I can say is it is about time.

Here is how the scam works:

The company mails out unsolicited flyers.

GET PAID FOR MAILING OUR SPECIAL LETTERS FROM HOME!
POTENTIAL EARNINGS OF UP TO $5000 OR MORE WEEKLY!
FREE POSTAGE, FREE CIRCULARS, FREE ENVELOPES.
Pay Checks Mailed Every Tuesday.
Don’t Get Left Out! Give us a try & receive a check in as little as ten days!

Only 10 percent of people received any payment at all, and their total average earnings were $19.50, far less than the $99 to $399 they had to pay up-front to participate.

The “special advertising letters” people were being asked to stuff and mail turned out to be nothing more than solicitation flyers for a second bogus work-at-home program. People who joined the second program were asked to pay an up-front fee, typically $99, to assemble and mail “Get Credit Now” booklets from home and receive $20 per booklet mailed. In fact, people that participated in the booklet program were not paid for fulfilling orders and were expected to market the booklets and generate orders to make money.

David S. Brookman is the scammer that is running this operation. It is estimated that people have lost more than $7 million to this scam.

Here is a review of this scam from one of its victims:
