Scam Artists Call Businesses Posing as BBB

July 31, 2014

Better Business Bureau warns that scam artists are calling businesses in eastern North Carolina and claiming to be with the Raleigh Better Business Bureau. The scam artists are telling businesses that they can become a BBB Accredited Business for a low rate. They also promise that the businesses will have an A+ rating and that no complaints will ever be filed against them.

Businesses who have received these calls say that the calls typically come in the middle of the night and that they are receiving as many as four calls a day.  The calls seem to be targeting transportation related industries. BBB is not associated with these calls, and urges businesses to hang up the phone and notify BBB if they receive such calls.
