The Better Business Bureau (BBB) Serving Wisconsin is issuing a warning to BBB accredited businesses to watch for phone calls from a “Peter Short” claiming to be associated with the Better Business Bureau. These phone calls are NOT coming from the BBB Serving Wisconsin, but from a call center in California. He has been calling businesses throughout the country and prompts that he is networking and has an opportunity for you. Short says he used to work for the BBB and eventually tries to sell a mobile application to your business. He calls from the number (408) 500-7150. We want all BBB accredited businesses to know that this man is in no way affiliated with the BBB.
BBB warns that, unfortunately, scammers oftentimes prey upon the BBB name and may give false information to the businesses and/or consumers they call. If you have any question regarding call from the BBB, please call our main number: (414) 847-6000.
Accredited Businesses may call the accredited business only hotline: (800) 273-1024.
