Whether you agree with its stand on political issues, the Web site of the Better Business Bureau has quite a bit of helpful consumer information on such topics as identity theft, business scams, etc.
Their Web site states:
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) system in the U.S. extends across the nation; coast-to-coast, and in Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico.
Since the founding of the first BBB in 1912, the BBB system has proven that the majority of marketplace problems can be solved fairly through the use of voluntary self-regulation and consumer education.
The BBB’s Core Services include:
- Business Reliability Reports
- Dispute Resolution
- Consumer and Business Education
- Charity Review
