Sorry, the BBB is a MOB styled organization.

Their time was yesterday.
They are the past

I dont remember ever joining, the email seems odd that they want me to change the wording on my website.

IF not a member,
Tell them you do give money back and to go pound sand
Their next line is to tell you if you join they can make all this go away.
You wouldn't want an unresolved complaint would you....even though they are the opnes complaining....Mob BS....

If a member tell them the same and fix the issue then cancel the next day.

If you are a member they want you to prove that you stand behind your guarantee according to the BBB standards. I'm not sure how you would prove that if no customer has ever asked for their money back..... that's a good thing. I guess you could simply say I've never had anyone ask.You have to play by the BBB rules if you are going to be a member.

NO ONE looks at BBB
They are irrelevant.

Google your business name and city you operate in...you will see reviews from a bunch of review web sites including google, facebook, angies list, groupon, yelp. No where will you see a BBB rating in the search results......

After 11 years in business it is possible I signed up with them and don't remember. I plan on calling them tomorrow and see what it's about.
I have never had anyone want their money back after a job.
no, they charge money to be a member. You would know if you were paying. Its several hundred dollars a year.

so let me get this straight. Someone not affiliated with the Government or Law Enforcement tells you that you are not complying with their rules. So its pretty easy

-if you do have a membership, drop it
-if you dont have a membership, ask them what gives them the right to oversee how you run your company or simply ignore it

Glad this came up. I got a call from the BBB I havent had the time to return yet, so I can cross that off my to do list.

I know I'm not paying anything so I must not be a member.
I'll call them tomorrow and see what it's about and politely tell them to kiss my a$$ and they can not tell me that I need to change wording on my website.

Looks like a BS form letter to me . “ Calling “ or contacting them will bring a “ push “ to join . Probably using some software that scans local company websites for “ key “ words so they can send something like this .
1. Toss it in the garbage .
2. Use for starting the charcoal when cooking .
3. Roll it on the toilet paper roll .
All the Best , Ed
