The BBB of Buffalo, NY is engaging in shameless and unethical business practices.
They are cold-calling local business with the following message:
"This is (xxxxxx) of the Better Business Bureau. I NEED the business owner to call me at our Buffalo Office at (716)881-5222."
The message is structured as one of urgency. It cons you into thinking that a customer has filed a complaint against your business. The true nature of the call is to market the BBB's "pay to play" services to you. Don't fall for their slick and unethical ploy.
After doing some research, it appears that each local BBB is run as something of an independent franchise. The L.A. chapter was shut down to fraudualent and dishonest practices.
