Amy Schram

The Better Business Bureau

 

Amy Schram of the Better Business Bureau was our speaker.  Amy spoke about the BBB's history and it's current work.?

 

The Better Business Bureaus was designed to foster honest and responsive relationships between businesses and consumers.  It provides consumers with a place to research a company prior to engaging in business with them, and also serves as a mediator to resolve compaints between consumers and businesses.  The BBB also works hard to protect consumers by alerting them about scams and fraud activity.

 

The BBB's key objectives are:

  • Setting standards for marketplace trust 
  • Encouraging and supporting best practices by engaging with and educating consumers and businesses
  • Celebrating marketplace role models
  • Calling out and addressing substandard marketplace behavior
  • Creating a community of trustworthy businesses and charities

Amy touched upon some of the current common scams, especially those phone calls and emails from people trying to obtain your confidential information.  It was a great reminder to never give your confidential info in response to a call or email you receive.

 

Amy concluded by providing us with several tools we can use.  You can register for the Do Not Call List at donotcall.gov or at 1-888-382-1222.  You can request an annual copy of your credit report at annualcreditreport.com
