Better Business Bureau; Is it worth another look
Better Business Bureau Fraudulent Sales Practices
Have some other independent ventures objected to the BBB and there deals rehearses? We have for a long while. Our franchisees, (our organization is a portable vehicle wash establishment organization) are needed to join the nearby Chambers of Commerce as a component of their establishment when one exists in their elite region. Yet, when they do the BBB calls up and says;
“We have been getting a great deal of calls about your administration, however we didn’t have a clue what to educate those clients who asked concerning you with The BBB?” Then the pitch goes on…for about $300 in addition to dollars you will receive….
Our franchisees join the chamber before the beginning of their business while their versatile vehicle wash administration trucks Hive Endeavors, LLC are being worked to become acquainted with the networks they will serve. Inver capably they will get the call from the BBB from the new part registry from the office of business before any publicizing goes out, so truth be told nobody had ever called the BBB by any stretch of the imagination. This has happened to our franchisees in Carson City, NV; Palm Desert, CA; Agoura Hills, CA; Camarillo, CA; Sacramento, CA and Houston, TX. I understand that this is “selling misrepresentation” and I am concerned. I am informed that a significant number of the 128 BBBs the nation over compensation their sales reps either all or part commission. So maybe this is an individual issue, yet their sales reps have done this. I for one have had it happen multiple times to me as the franchisees joined at the Chamber of Commerce in different urban communities and they didn’t have telephones yet, so they called me at Corporate. As a franchisor I am liable for any verbiage of any sales rep given during a deal, shouldn’t the BBB likewise be subject for these deceptions?
I reached the Washington D.C. head office of the BBB and they rejected that any such episode has ever happened and alluded me to the way that they are a 90-year old association. Perhaps, however as it stands today they are violating the law. This has happened multiple times in deals calls to me by and by from BBB agents. I additionally reached the Los Angeles BBB and was informed that yes their sales reps frequently use Chamber of Commerce arrangements of new individuals just as look into names of any individual who has had a protest recorded against them. I was recounted this in private, at this point I am utilizing this data as well. All in all they utilize the rundown of organizations who had clients bring in if it was a substantial grumbling as a business instrument. Fascinating since bookkeeping firms can’t likewise be experts nowadays. The deception of the BBB is a bit of alarming and obviously untrustworthy if not out right deceitful as I would see it. I was told at the L.A. office that “MOST COMPANIES” join the BBB. Unimaginable since there are over 1.6 million organizations all through the more prominent LA, Orange County, Riverside, San Fernando Valley region and most must be over 51%. This is a distortion by any stretch. This would mean they would have at least 800,001 business individuals, when truth be told they have short of what one 10th that number in all of Southern California. However these equivalent BBB workplaces take protests about diversifying and on a significant number of their sites advise purchasers to know about distortions;
