I did a search but was not able to get a definitive result hit.

The place I work at has gotten several calls from the better business bureau and wanting us to join up.

looking for some reviews/insights/opinions, as the owner like for us to be a part of things since we work here and it affects us.

watched a thing on the news about the BBB.... was not good.... a guy to prove a point created a company and called Al Quida and paid for a full membership and got a A+ rating because he paid for the highest mebership possible... and a bunch of stuff like that is what they reported on... as long as you pay your dues they will keep your rating looking good!!

I saw the same thing on the BBB as Mgraphics. There were several large businesses that refuse to buy into the BBB's membership (I think one was a 4 star hotel chain) had poor ratings while fake businesses that pay had A ratings or businesses that had poor ratings immediately had their ratings jumped up when they did pay. I think the BBB is a joke, spend the money elsewhere.

No clue about it but looks like something for shady companies to look more legit maybe. I don't know. I hardly ever see the BBB logo on vehicles around here.

why would you pay for a worthless organization that knows dick **** about your business to do nothing ut take customer complaints about you and publish them?

why anyone would join the bbb is lunacy.

and to add to that any other BS small business network that gives you cool stickers to put on your door. Its all about being a member and getting the sticker. They offer nothing to the paying businesses

I had a company stiff me for over 5K (which can effect a small guy like me for a while) and on their website, they have the BBB logo on it. I called the BBB and they said that they couldn't do anything about it because I didn't buy from that company, and they purchased from me. Sooooo, they've still got an A+. It's so stupid. Still haven't seen my money four years later, and their still in business apparently. It's so dumb.
