BBB Military Line®

Better Business Bureau Military Line provides free consumer education and advocacy for military consumers and their families both in their communities and online.   Our experience shows that military personnel are frequently targeted and become the victims of unethical business practices.

Common practices directed at service members include:

  • Short-term loans with extremely high interest rates
  • Worthless “work-at-home” offers
  • Expensive and unnecessary insurance sales
  • Exorbitant interest on overpriced vehicles

To help reduce the number of military personnel falling victim to these predatory practices Better Business Bureau Serving Central Virginia offers interactive and engaging financial readiness workshops; BBB Business Reviews, which offer information on businesses and charities in their locality and nationally; and dispute resolution to help resolve buyer/seller complaints against businesses. 

Financial readiness education is critical so that these service members can focus on their mission whether at home or away.   

BBB Military Line Financial Readiness Workshops include:

  • Smart Consumer Workshop (for Adults or Teens)
  • Deals for Wheels Workshop (for Adults or Teens)
  • Investing for retirement

Better Business Bureau Serving Central Virginia would like to help area businesses and their employees understand the value of reinforcing ethics inside the workplace.  Please call our program manager Jennifer Dobson at 804.648.0030 to schedule a presentation.
