I posted once before abut how victims of a scam can initiate a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. You can read that in the BBB thread, HERE.
But I think it bears a revisit, considering some comments of late.
For a company to have a fair rating, say a C+ or so, That doesn’t mean it’s legitimate. It just needs to slide by without being reported. The Better business bureau doesn’t investigate companies on its own. It needs reports from members of the public to alert it to the fact that something’s amiss. Just one complaint that’s closed under dubious circumstances because the business refuses to reply doesn’t make a company legit. It just means that not enough people have stepped forward to report it. So if there’s a company out there that you know is crooked, report it. You could be stopping innocent people to falling victim to a scam business.
If you know of a company that’s falsely advertising itself, you don’t have to be a direct victim in order to report it. Any member of the public can report it. So if there’s a company out there that’s purposely misrepresenting itself to the public, report it.
You can report a false or fraudulent business in Texas HERE.
