BBB Accreditation

This business is not BBB accredited.

Businesses are under no obligation to seek BBB accreditation, and some businesses are not accredited because they have not sought BBB accreditation.

To be accredited by BBB, a business must apply for accreditation and BBB must determine that the business meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

It has come to the attention of Better Business Bureau that this company is advertising the BBB seal in the July, 2011, edition of the AT&T Real Yellow Pages.

"Better Business Bureau" and "BBB" and its seals are federally registered trademarks owned by the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc. These marks may only be used in limited ways by authorized users that have entered into a licensing agreement with BBB. The use of Better Business Bureau or BBB or the BBB seal without permission constitutes trademark infringement and is a violation of the trademark rights of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc. In addition, misuse of the registered trademark falsely implies BBB Accredited Business status and may well constitute false and deceptive advertising.
