Buyer beware: Hastings woman says her business was the target of a marketing scam
Brenda Koch has a word of warning to business owners in the Hastings area: When it comes to marketing your business, don't pay up front.
Koch and Randy Brady operate Safer Roads Driving School in Hastings and Woodbury. They were contacted by a man from Eden Prairie who sat down with them in their office and explained some marketing options to them. The man was paid up front.
Now, Koch believes she was scammed by that man, who works with Florida-based Student Relations, Inc.
