Fake Better Business Bureau Call: How It Works

(with video below) As you probably know, the Better Business Bureau is a reputable organization that offers consumers and businesses resources including business and charity reviews, stats, ratings, and complaints.

While BBB is a barometer in evaluating businesses against standards, scammers call or email business owners claiming to be BBB representatives. Using official verbiage, they pretend they need to update your business profile on the BBB network, asking for private information (credit card numbers, etc) as “confirmation”.

Fake BBB Employees Scam: How To Avoid

It’s a tough one, since real BBB reps actually make occasional phone calls to owners as well. Just like the real agents, the scammers use professionalism and courtesy, making it hard for you to differentiate.

The best thing to do is to ask them to send you their requirements and their needs in an e-mail. You can then see where the email is coming from or you can forward it to the real Better Business Bureau, to confirm if it’s theirs or not. The real BBB reps don’t mind doing this.

I got one of these BBB calls today. Very sweet and professional. Had me going for a while. When I asked her to verify who she was, she basically ignored the question and soon she started in on the $400 yearly fee and how some people like to use a credit card, etc. I just hung up on her.

My name is Doris price and I gave the wrong email address it’s dorisprice94@gmail.com Sammy’s dresses is a fake page they take your money and don’t send you your merchandise. Plz look into this, look on their app and see how many compliments they got they need to be shut down.

Call today from a lady claiming to be part of B.C. BBB asking if we are still moving or found a new location. I asked her twice why she wants to know and I finally said that neither question applies and still not sure how she got my information. She said thank you and hung up.

I received a BBB phone call, and I’m usually pretty good at telling a scam from the real thing. This guy was good, everything sounded really good. When I asked him to email me everything, he just hung up. I’m so glad I never gave ant info yet! The number was 916-307-4200 Sacramento branch office
