ALERT: Phone Scam Claiming it's BBB

December 01, 2011

ALERT: Better Business Bureau received a phone call from one of our Accredited Businesses this morning to let us know they received a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Better Business Bureau. The person on the phone said they were taking credit card donations for Toys for Tots; this is a scam!

Better Business Bureau employees would not call businesses or consumers to solicit credit card donations and if you receive one of these phone calls, you should contact your BBB as soon as possible. If you would like to make donations to individual charities, you should contact that charity directly and as always check with BBB at
