Fake BBB Representatives Calling Business Owners

October 16, 2008
(October 16, 2008 -Springfield, Mo.) – BBB of Southwest Missouri is aware of individuals calling businesses claiming to be from the BBB. Numerous business owners throughout the Ozarks have called the BBB office asking about these individuals who are asking to verify their company's information. These calls are not from the BBB.

BBB of Southwest Missouri does call companies in our 24 county service area but only for very specific reasons and suggests if any business is in doubt, ask the person for a call back number and call our office for verification

“Our tag line is to 'Start With Trust,” said Judy Mills, president and CEO of BBB of Southwest Missouri. “We want to ensure business owners and consumers that your BBB strives to be transparent and will not mislead you.”
