    Conflicting better business bureau ratings?? Fact or fiction

    I did a little research into this as it interested me.. When I searched for the commentary and business venture feedback from the better business bureau, this is what I found in the better business bureau link out of Memphis.. Interesting piece of information..

    If this is incorrect or a conflicting piece of Better business Bureau information, please inform .

    The Better Business Bureau exposed these "awards" as "pay to play" (my words) vanity awards of NO VALUE.


    "The BBB of the Mid-South is issuing a business alert about U.S. Commerce Association’s “Best of” vanity awards. The “prestigious” awards from this national association appear to be part of a widespread scheme designed to get businesses to pay for vanity awards of little or no value. BBBs across the nation have issued warnings about this vanity award scheme since 2008.

    Businesses nationwide have reported receiving an email notification that they’ve been selected as an outstanding local business in their particular industry. The association’s website says winners are determined by their “marketing success, using information gathered internally in conjunction with third-party data” as a part of its selection process."
