BBB!! What a joke

I sent a letter to the Better Business Bureau about one of its members. They are using misleading and outright lies in their advertising ( they claim to be the best, have the least compaints, lowest prices, quickest service in town etc ) . I want them to prove it which they cannot.

The BBB repplied....

Dear Sir/Madam:

We would suggest that you contact the Manitoba Consumers Bureau regarding the false or misleading of advertising.

They can be reached at:

Manitoba Consumers Bureau
302 - 258 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg, MB R3C 0B6
Phone Toll Free 1-800-782-0067
Phone #(204) 945-3800
Fax #(204) 945-0728

We regret being unable to be of any assistance to you and thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,
BBB of Manitoba


This is why my company will never be a member of the BBB. They say it protects the customer. Why is it that they cannot/ will not do anything about my complaint?

Buyer beware.

My feelings exactly! The BBB is not going to do anything to piss off a paying member!
Every year they tell me the same thing--"we will give you credibility"
Yea right!

My experience with a BBB was that they send the complaint to the person that the complaint is about. They then take their answer and send it to you with a cover letter which states the BBB has no enforcement powers.

Do they get paid for doing that???
