Ron Berry, senior vice president for the Council of Better Business Bureaus, said, “It is not necessary to have been victimized in order to make a report. Once the BBB has informa-tion, we can warn other businesses, making it more difficult for con artists to successfully prey on those who don’t recognize the scam.”
Contractors are urged to contact their state BBB by telephone. Incidents may also be reported online at www.yppa .org or www.bbb.org (website).
