Requests for BBB help come from many places

February 26, 2010
I attended a high school basketball game with my sons on Tuesday night.  While at the game, my younger son talked to a friend who was concerned that his brother may be losing money to a "shady business."  He asked my son whether the Better Business Bureau had information about the business, which is based in Elizabethtown.  After checking the BBB's information, it appears that "shady" is a fair description of the business practices encountered by the brother.

The "shady business" offers credit repair.  Problems in this industry are so widespread that the credit repair industry in one of a handful of industries which the BBB has identified as having "inherent problems."  This determination results in a BBB rating of D or lower for any firm having the "type of business" designation of "credit repair" in the BBB database used to generate BBB ratings and BBB Reliability Reports®.

This friend's "credit repair" case provided the information which was discussed in my "Taking Care of Business" segment on WHAS radio this morning.  CLICK HERE for more information about this credit repair situation.
