User Complaints for 888-995-0740
Claimed to be calling from/for the BBB to see if my business qualified for certification. I know the routine. There's a large fee. Was very aggressive. I complained to the BBB and the rep claimed that he did not recognize this number.
Caller name: karen
claimed she was from the better business bureau. said she needed 10 minutes of my time to answer questions about our business to see if we qualify for certification. I was too busy to talk to her so she gave me her number to get back to her when I have a few minutes. Sounds too fishy to me.
Caller name: Clare Smith
she left massage that the owner of the business must call her back before she leaves her office at 4:00. She didn't say who she wanted to talk to so I think it's a fishing scam or aggressive advertising that I don't want.
Caller name: Kelly
Received a message from "the Better Business Bureau" asking to call back but without saying why. Annoying! I called back, left a message, and now am annoyed to think this is a marketing call. I am on the Do Not Call list anyway... how is this "Better Business"?
Caller name: Debbie Coffee
Said she was from the BBB and wanted to speak to the owner, who was not available. Left message and the toll free number. Her message was regarding what kind of reporting language we wanted for the company when the BBB receives calls regarding the company.
What you all fail to understand is The bbb is a not for profit the dnc list doesn't apply to them. if there are calling you its because you have a good repor with them. you cant buy bbb trust me i got denied i am working with them now to resolve i gave them a check over the phone and was declined cause of a complaint that wasnt taken care of.
2 weeks ago. I received a call from this 888 995 0740 as well. After reading these comments I did not return this call and I have not heard from the so called "BBB" since. Im pretty sure its just another DECEPTIVE ploy that the BBB is using or someone else to get my focus and attention.... just like all those SEO outfits that use "Googles" name saying they want to "Verify" your listing.
Calls wanting to talk to the owner of the company - have called once a week or so for weeks. Leaves message, 'will be in office until 4pm, please return my call" claims to be with BBB. If we were interested in joining, we would call them. Consider this nothing more than a telemarketer
We got a message on our answering machine stated that the owner needs to call back. They want to know about the way we practice our business because someone called and wanted to know. It was intended to be vague and scare you so you think there is a complaint . It is a dirty trick. They should stated out that it is a courtesy call instead. We deleted the call after we google up this number and see other reviews. Thanks to this website we did not even bother to deal with them. It is a telemarketer call from a call center not Better Business itself.
Thanks. Hope this help other business out there.
888-995-0740, ext. 104 - claiming to be Bob Davis with the BBB and have the owner return his call - he will be in his office till 4:00pm - I am so glad to have researched this - I had a feeling it was bogus - I have been receiving many calls that say no caller id or unknown caller and today they left a number and it did show up on my phone - they are now blocked! Thanks for all the info!
Caller name: Katy Krone
Call came at 8:45 AM before business hours and caller left a message. She said she was from the Better Business Bureau and to call back using extension 112. She wanted to talk to the "owner." We're a nonprofit. There is no owner -- just a governing board and Executive Director. Based on what I see here, I plan to ignore this, but wanted to post because these comments are very helpful.
