I formed a company in 1991 that provides registered agent for service of process for several thousand corporations and limited liability companies for other small businesses in the State of Nevada. I paid D&B $599 to build a credit profile for another one of my companies. For no justifiable reason, whatsoever, Dun & Bradstreet rated my company as a "severe risk" credit company.
My company is doing well financially. It has been profitable over the years and has never paid a bill late. Not only was this action taken without explanation, the D&B company has also marked as "severe risk" credit over 3000 companies in Nevada simply because my company is the registered agent for service of process for these companies. Here are some of the various excuses D&B gave:
1. A company named Direct Credit Advantage (DCA) owned by former D&B employee, Sarkis Nercessian and Jeff Maziarz had people buy companies from us. 2. DCA would attempt to build credit reports for these companies using D&B services. 3. Apparently DCA employees did not report the proper start date to D&B for the various companies purchased from us. 4. DCA, without my approval, utilized another one of my companies, Companies Incorporated as a credit reference on these various business on which they attempted to build credit profiles.
This roughly similar to a consumer credit bureau rating all customers who shop at Wal-Mart as high risk because the high-risk CEO another company told some people to shop at Wal-Mart. Countless phone calls to the D&B were met by arrogance and refusal to help. I ask for the following to satisfy this consumer :
1. Remove the "severe risk" credit rating from my business profile at once. 2. Reverse this ridiculous and nonsensical "severe risk" rating from companies if it is such merely because my company serves as registered agent.
