Since October 2008, the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau has received numerous inquiries from consumers across the country regarding Briggs & Stratton Division. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS BRIGGS & STRATTON CORPORATION, A WISCONSIN BBB ACCREDITED BUSINESS. The BBB believes that scammers are using the Briggs & Stratton name to perpetrate a grant scheme using counterfeit checks. If you receive a letter and a check bearing the name "Briggs & Stratton Division, P.O. Box 704, Milwaukee, WI 53201", we urge you to proceed with caution. You may be asked to deposit the check into your personal account, withdraw money and wire it overseas. It has been the experience of the BBB that these checks are usually counterfeit. If the check is counterfeit, you will owe your bank the amount that you withdrew from your account. You will not receive your grant, and you won't be able to recover the money that you wired.
