    I'm not a member, but have heard its a total waste of money. From what I've been told, about all you get for the $$$$ spent is a plack to hang on the wall that says your a member. Also, the only time anyone really calls the BBB is to complain, not to check references to see if your legit.

    If you do join the bbb and someone does complain to them you have to make it right with them to stay in good standing with the bbb. Its not like going to court you are atomaticly wrong in most cases you have to refund all money and pay all damges which are highly by the custmer. Becuse they call another lco to fix it so its not your cost to fix it. its the other compaines cost and profit and they go with highest bid for the bbb and then higher the lowballer to fix it. 350 buys alot of flyers.
