News from the President...

As we approach the Christmas season many times I hear, "what is the true meaning of Christmas?" If you could sum it up in one word, the true meaning of Christmas is unconditional love. But love is not an emotion, it's an action. Love is kindness in action. We can all "feel" loved when someone shows us they care. This Christmas season lets show kindness to those around us, help those in need, and be intentional with our good deeds and actions. Together we can all make a difference; one person at a time.

Thank you all for being a part of the BBB of Greater East Tennessee. Make an effort to spend quality time with those close to you and may 2018 be a year of blessings for you and your loved ones!

Merry Christmas,
Tony Binkley

Silicone Baby Dreams

A Pattern of Complaints…
BIRMINGHAM, AL, November 8, 2017: Based on a pattern of consumer complaints, Better Business Bureau Serving Central and South Alabama is issuing an alert to the public regarding the online retailer, Silicone Baby Dreams. BBB has received 10 complaints and negative reviews on the business in the past six months from consumers around the country. Silicone Baby Dreams sells custom, life-like silicone baby dolls on their websites: and Since the items are custom-made, there are no refunds or returns, and cancellation requests must be received within 24 hours of placing an order. Consumers report ordering and paying for dolls, with prices ranging from $650-850, but never receiving them. On the occasion that they do receive a doll, consumers report their orders are not as described, unfinished, or missing pieces. When victims call to complain, the calls are forwarded to voicemail. Silicone Baby Dreams has ignored customers’ attempts to contact them by voicemail, email and text message. Better Business Bureau Serving Central and South Alabama has attempted to contact the business repeatedly by telephone, email and USPS mail to no avail.
