Business Beat 12/9: Wine Exchange Warning, Bismarck’s Rocket Coffee Benefits Rain Forest



Posts like this one… for a wine exchange… have been circulating the web.

They promise pay-off for people.. who mail a bottle to a friend…

It’s a Facebook post with a big promise.

Send one bottle of wine to a friend… and end up with six, or even 36, for yourself…

Sound too good to be true? That’s because it is.

Gift exchanges like this one are considered a pyramid scheme by the U-S postal inspector.

Mechele Mills with the Better Business Bureau says it’s about more than that though.

Mills says these gift exchanges started with chain letters… long before the Internet.

No matter the medium, they could lead people to provide their addresses to strangers.


Switching gears, if you’re into mixing coffee with smoothies Rocket coffee might be a good fit..

Linda Babb opened her shop a few months ago in a north Bismarck plaza..

Though, the rain forests may be miles and miles away from western part of our state,

Inside the cafe, Babb’s got a space theme with the environment in mind.

Every cup of coffee you purchase goes toward saving 2 square feet of rain forests.

She says she’s seen a lot of interest in the concept, 85-percent of her customers are new!
