What the Better Business Bureau Can Do For YOU!
Updated: Mar 4
Featured in our fourth broadcast was our special guest Cynthia Lavin from the Southeast Better Business Bureau. She's the Director of Communications and Community Engagement. Last week when we reported on the runaway wedding photographer from Cape Coral, we also revealed that our research of April Mersinger Photography had turned up FIVE complaints filed on the BBB website.
A national brand that's been around for 100 years, the BBB not only takes complaints from consumers against businesses, but also offers businesses educational programs, networking opportunities and other events. Cynthia shared how businesses that are "ACCREDITED" with the BBB have to meet certain criteria to be considered. The BBB researches their contracts, website, employees, and more. Businesses do apply and pay a yearly fee to be accredited with the BBB. Consumers are able to both search for reliable service providers or report those who have performed shoddy work or behaved unethically (even if they are NOT accredited). This is important for other South Florida consumers to avoid bad apples!
