BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

go back


The Better Business Bureaus (BBB) is a non-profit service organization supported by businesses which stress compliance with ethical standards of marketplace conduct. The BBB will arbitrate consumer business disputes informally and privately if the consumer and business cannot resolve an issue. Both parties must agree to the arbitration decision, which is final and binding.


The BBB also has a variety of pamphlets and other educational materials to inform consumers about purchasing and to provide performance reports on individual companies.
