AUSTIN, Texas -- Better Business Bureau cautions consumers to watch out for a website that is falsely charging for BBB complaint resolution services. charges consumers an upfront fee of $1,500 to $2,000 for assistance in collecting money owed from businesses only to forward consumers’ complaints to BBB. told one consumer that in order to help him collect money owed from a business he needed to pay 30 percent of the amount owed. The site requested half of the 30 percent upfront, which he paid.

After receiving the fee, asked the consumer to provide the details of the dispute so the site could determine whether to handle the “case.” Afterwards, the consumer received an information packet that included an envelope addressed to BBB. told the consumer that it would recover his money within 90 days. It’s now been 90 days and the consumer tried to contact to no avail.

BBB reminds all consumers that its services are free. Consumers never have to pay a third party in order to receive help from BBB. To file a complaint against a business, please fill out BBB’s online form or contact your local BBB.
