March/April/May 2000 News for Members

The BBB has promptly notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the appropriate Postal Inspector's office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). If you have an unresolved dispute with this business, please contact the BBB so we can help direct your complaint to the proper agency or you may wish to seek legal advice.
Financing $4,000 - $250,000 includes: Personal, Consolidation, Auto, Mortgage, Business Loans. (Special First Time Buyer
Programs available on all auto and mortgage loans). Bad credit/ No credit/ BK's accepted. Same day approval/ no fees required. Licensed/ bonded. Serving the U.S. since 1961. Voted #1 in customer care. Open 7 days. 6am- 8pm. 1-800-692-1034.
The Bureau has received complaints alleging that misrepresentations concerning obtaining a loan were made in the sales presentation. Consumers responded to an advertisement in their local newspaper under "Money to Lend" for loans ranging from $4,000 - $250,000. In order to obtain a loan, consumers were required to send the business, in advance, three months payments by western union in order to receive the loan. After sending the money, consumers advised the BBB that they never received the loan and found that they can no longer contact the business.
Our file reflects that the business does not exist in Naples, Florida as mail sent to this business has been returned marked undeliverable. The money sent by consumers through western union was actually picked up in New York and New Jersey. In addition, most of the phone numbers are disconnected or have voice mails.
|Since the BBB web site was introduced in June 1999 we have experienced
a great increase in visits - almost doubling in count with each month that
passes. In our search to bring more services to our members and the public
in general, your BBB is constructing several updates to it's web site.
Look for the following enhancements within the next two months:
8 Web Site Links - To create a more user friendly atmo- sphere we will be providing a link from our web site to member sites. You may have already received a call from one of our operators to determine your company's web and email address. If you have not been contacted or are unsure, please complete the form on page 2 and remit to the BBB at your earliest convenience.
8 Online Newsletter - The member newsletter will be available online. We are also creating archives so you can review past publications.
8 Local BBBOnLine Participation Listing - A complete listing of local companies who participate in the BBBOnLine program will be listed for easy access with appropriate links.
If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the BBB web site, please contact us at the Member Hotline or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bureau would like to thank all members who reserved advertising in this directory and guide!
|The Bureau has made great efforts in providing an automated phone service,
web site, and complaint handling process that is user friendly, informative
and effective. We are continuously upgrading these services to better serve
both the public and our members. A few of the users took time out of their
day to send the following compliments:
"BBB - I have to tell you that I am very impressed with your services. I just called and requested information by fax and recording. I was very pleased with the way the automated service handled my call. Usually I like to speak to someone in person, however, I was satisfied with the recording. I felt very comfortable and secure in knowing that I can always call the BBB for a company reference. I received a response immediately and did not have to wait for a call back, voice mail, etc., two to three days later. Thank you for such a great service."
Jeanette Bugarin, Los Angeles, CA
"Dear BBB - Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciated your information. I found your service easy to use, informative and to the point. Thanks again!"
"Dear BBB - I just wanted to thank you and your organization for the prompt and helpful response to my complaint regarding ABC Company's unsolicited e-mailings to my account. I've waited over a month, and no new e-mails have arrived from ABC Company.
I've never failed to be delighted with the work of the Better Business Bureau. Thank you very much for your quick action and efforts! (I've been singing your praises throughout Illinois)"
Sincerely, Brian Coughlin :)

|SAINT OR SINNER? Sometimes the distinction isn't so clear. One day
a company can be riding high, basking in the glow of favorable press, satisfied
customers, and steady revenues. The next day, its reps are working overtime,
fielding angry phone calls and issuing refunds. Bad news travels awfully
fast in the Internet Age.
Just ask Microworkz or Intel or InfoNet, three firms that share the dubious distinction of being named to Consumer Watch's 1999 sinners list. Though the reasons for their fall from grace vary, each of these companies (along with the other 1999 sinners) were guilty of one common mistake: They neglected their customers.
And how do the saints (few though they be this year) earn their lofty
title? In a word
It should come as no surprise that Web-related companies and organizations dominate this year's listing. As e-commerce and e-mail-based communication figure increasingly in our lives, the
Internet has become the source of both opportunities and potential dangers for consumers. With few exceptions, this years's saints and sinners earn their title for policies, practices, or activities in the online world.
Better Business Bureau Online.
This is the BBB's second consecutive year on the saints' list. The reason: its ongoing commitment to safe, responsible e-commerce. Two years after introducing its Online Reliability program, BBB Online took another step and went live last year with its Online Privacy Seal, aimed at providing Web-based businesses with guidelines for responsible collection, storage, and distribution of personal information. Other groups have attempted similar programs, but none carry the clout of the BBB. Consumers who visit the site carrying the privacy seal can rest assured that their personal information will be kept confidential. The BBB has also devised a version of the seal geared specifically for Web sites for children. Good work!
A company cannot just "join" the BBB by paying dues. It must have a history of ethical practices and adhere to fair advertising and selling standards. We thank our new members who are telling their customers and neighbors that they want to do their part to make their community a good place to work and live, and that they believe in business self-regulation and consumer education. We urge fellow members to support our new "partners" whenever possible by looking for the BBB torch before they make a purchase. New Members, thank you for your support and welcome aboard!!
