All the bad reviews you read here about the BBB are correct. They have no clue of the facts. The BBB tries to extort businesses by posting negative reviews. They are a joke. Even if you thoroughly dispute the complaint or the customer is lying, they still leave the complaint on file to make you look bad. With thousands of clients, you will always run into a few that have problems and will go out of their way to try to ruin your businesses reputation after asking for unrealistic demands. Look at how many bad reviews the BBB have online here and realize there are likely hundreds more that never post. It's nice to see them take a public beating and all complaints against the BBB are legitimate for sure. The 5 star reviews are likely fakes.

This organisation masquerades as a quasi official body and makes arbitrary judgments about businesses they know nothing about. In our case someone contacted them when they failed to quit smoking following a quit smoking session. The client failed to fulfill a series of exercises, made no sincere effort to quit smoking, failed to come in for a second (free) session as she had committed to if she struggled to end her smoking, and instead went straight to BBB. In such a case firstly we would work with her to overcome her smoking through a series of exercises. Secondly we would assign a second therapist to assist her. In this case she made no effort what so ever to address her failure to quit. No second try, no commitment to work on the issue whatsoever. BBB simply took her at her word, did not follow up when we responded and pointed out our stated policies and process online. They made no attempt at resolution. We work with many clients and help over 87 percent end their smoking. Those who fail usually do so because they do not do a series of simple exercises which help in letting go of smoking - these include a little exercise, getting to the sauna to sweat out the toxins and getting a healthy breakfast each day for a two week period. Every client commits to this, and we encourage the clients to reach out to us if they struggle. We've been doing this for many years with great success. All BBB did was judge, with no information. There was no attempt to verify the false story the client provided. There was no dialogue entered into. These people are a disgrace and should either get their act together or stop damaging businesses that do a great deal of good work.

Definitely a shake-down type of organization. Complaints against Acrotech Tech Cleaning in Surrey BC and they still have an A+ rating! Pathetic considering I said I would never do business with them again nor recommend them or the owners sisters companies to anyone! As was stated elsewhere, any organization sporting the BBB logo is one that you should turn and run from!

Disapponted with the BBB. I have dealt with one roofing company, for 10 years. When the previous owner sold the company, the BBB did not note that on their site. I want to know if ownership changes, so I know who I am dealing with. Also BBB has misleading information on their site. I was so annoyed at this roofing company that I did some research. It states business start date was 1989, but in checking records in Victoria the company was only incorporated in 1997, and no record of them beforehand. How can you trust you are seeing the right information on the BBB site.

Absolutely ridiculous these people should be put out of business! "Better Business Bureau" for whom are they better for, the crooks that's who"I have a case against a business unresolved they've closed the file unresolved and they still give these people an B rating are you frigging kidding! this company has two previous complaints against them is this how they were resolved? well its off to small debts court I will be going! Any business that these people recommend should be avoided at all costs! Anyone defending them and giving them a good rating most likely work for them!

BBB has no idea, or understanding of the businesses people are complaining about. There are two sides to each story. BBB is about as useless as wet toilet paper.

The Better Business Bureau is a group of unprofessional people who will take any bodies complaint about anything or any product. Then the BBB will proceed to try to extort money from the business. The BBB takes the complaint from any one off the street and do not validate the complaint. They contact the company that the person complained about and try to sell the company a membership accreditation. If the company does not want to buy the BBB membership...a problem starts. They put information on the internet that there was a compliant about a company. Then the BBB trys to get you to pay to use them for dispute reolution to solve your problem that they have plastered bad things about your company all over the internet. If you don't buy their membership or buy their dispute resolution...they continue..defammation of the character or your business is All Over the Internet. The BBB is a huge SCAM. The BBB is preying on business's to make their money. Just remember the BBB will take a complaint from any person..even a psycho crazy person and use it against your business to extort money from your business. Just investigate them and you will see. WARNING: All Business Owners - Take Caution. and Consumers- the BBB don't care who they sell an accreditation to- all they care about is the money..
