I have known for years that the Better Business Bureau has been playing an extortion racket in numerous cities across the United States. Basically, if you haven’t heard about it already, they rate businesses from a high grade of A to the lowest grade of F on their websites. consumers use these reports to judge whether or not to do business or purchase a product from a company.
The problem is is that this grading scale is totally up in the air. It is 100% for sale everywhere in the country. If you are not a member of the Better Business Bureau you will not see an A grade for your company. Else wise, you could be a member and have a horrible record of ripping off consumers and as long as you pay them their fees to be a member you will get an A rating.
Now is that fair or just? Absolutely not – that’s pure extortion. all one has to do is look at the listings and reports for their local car dealers. Almost every party alert in the United States of America has hundreds if not thousands of complaints because they rip off consumers. you can’t run a new car dealership and make a profit and not rip off consumers – it’s not possible. Yet, every new car dealer in the nation has an A or A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Go figure.
I have been speaking out about the Better Business Bureau and it’s extortion scam for years, but at least I am not the only one. Now there is a website who’s sole purpose is to expose the extortion scam going on at the BBB – BBBRoundup.com. This website is very informative and has a lot of great information on it.
It also has links and more on current TV show investigations into the BBB (like ABC’s 20/20 and others). There is even news on litigation involving the BBB and its extortion scam. Several state attorney generals are actively going after the BBB for its untruthful grading system and taking payments to flout the grades.
I especially like the part where it talks about the terrorist group Hamas and how they joined the BBB and after paying their $425 extortion fee were given a rating of A-. This was exposed on TV investigative reports and shows and it isn’t one instance. There are millions of cases of fraudulent chicanery with the Better Business Bureau’s grading system.
I think Everyone needs to visit the site BBBRoundup.com so you can see the real truth behind the BBB and their extortion scam. The BBB is only after one thing and that is profits and they don’t care that they have misled the public and consumers for decades. I share the same opinion as the author on BBBRoundup that the Better Business Bureau has long outlived its usefulness and needs to be shut down.
Check out BBBRoundup. It’s loaded with lots of great information, helpful links, a timeline of legal events with the BBB, information on how the BBB has been misleading the public and dodging the law for decades and even stuff on how to challenge a bad grade wrongfully given by the BBB. BBBRoudup calls light to what could possibly be the biggest scam in America – the BBB itself!
