The BBB is the same way.To be a member all you have to do is pay your dues.
You are soooo correct David, and very few folks realize the truth about the Better Business Bull#%%@, or I mean the BBB.
My little local contracting business was always bidding against a extremely large residential contracting company. I consistently beat their bids by 50% and provided much higher quality products! Had a older resident reject my window replacement bid of $4,200 for her house and sign with the large company for over $12,000! When I asked her why she said they were members of the BBB and I was not.
The BBB quoted me just under $300 a month for membership. The large competitor I am sure paid much more but never had an "unresolved" complaint. I knew better because their customers would constantly call me to fix their mistakes.
Angie's List is the same scam. To be listed you have to pay that company huge bucks and it doesn't matter if you are a good contractor or not, they just want their money.
I guess that kind of got off subject....
