Vending Scams - Buyer Beware - You Can't Cheat An Honest Man

If you are interested in the vending business, or, you are a current operator who wishes to expand your business, watch out for the "to good to be true" opportunity. As we are all aware there are hundreds of articles about vending scams on the internet. Yet every day we see news alerts or read articles about people who have been caught up in some type of scam and have lost hundreds or thousands of dollars.

If you open up your newspaper today, no matter where you live, you can find some 800 number advertisements for the "All Cash Business", or "Established routes" for sale. Make thousands of dollars per month! Sounds good. Good for the sleaze on the other end of the line.

Read our Consumers page before you commit to anything. Use our Route Manager tools to evaluate the sales per machine. Remember your labor is not free! Remember licensing, permits, insurance, State sales tax, estimated federal taxes, gas, auto insurance, liability insurance, and remember most of all COMPETITION who will do anything to insure your failure.
