(KMOV) - New Beginning Enterprises is a company based out of Youngstown, Ohio with an ad in the local unemployment guide. The job is to sell magazine subscriptions door to door in Dallas. One local teen felt like he was ripping people off so he quit.

His mother tells News 4 when he quit they dropped him off at the bus station where they said a ticket back home was waiting for him. However, when he arrived, there was no ticket waiting for him and he didn't have the money to buy his own. He was stuck at the bus station for 2 days.
 
News 4 contacted New Beginning Enterprises and was told the rule is you must work there for 30 days. The victim quit after 2 weeks. The Better Business Bureau has a warning for you...do your research. "People realize that people are looking for jobs anf that people might be willing to take more risks and to go out and do some things that they might not do otherwise," says Chris Thetford with the BBB.
 
The company received an "F" with the Better Business Bureau which is the lowest grade within the BBB system. They've received over 100 complaints just this year alone.
