Remember when your dad told you that nothing in this world his free?  That's good advice that's strongly confirmed by the Idaho BBB.

You've probably seen a bunch of 'risk free' product trials online or social media. Maybe it's for a beauty cream or some other kind of product that you're interested in. You should be careful. Often times, you'll sign up for the trail and find if very, very difficult to cancel.

You should also be wary of so-called 'celebrity endorsements.' It's important that you verify the celebrity that's being touted is really endorsing the product or service. You might be surprised to find out the endorsement is a sham.

Last but but most important: Check the product or business against the Idaho BBB. If there's a history of complaints against the company, they'll have it.
