Let TDW know you wouldn't buy from them!

Tuesday, April 12, 2005

If you believe I, and the linked individuals over on the right side have been shafted, and that you wouldn't buy from TDW, leave a comment. I send TDW emails from time to time, linking to this blog. Let them know their business practices won't be tolerated. Think of it as striking a blow for what is right. Thanks. It will be appreciated.

  • Just be careful of the Better Business Bureau. Most people assume as I did before I was enlightened that the BBB is somehow government affiliated. A wise man I learned my business skills from once told me that they are simply a private entity .. a business in essence that will be more than happy to give you a good review if you pay your dues. They have little or no power over any business who knows what they are doing. If you really want to deal with someone who can affect their business get their Local or State District attorney involved... I can almost guarantee that if everyone on here who has a complaint were to lodge one to the main offices local DA you would almost definitely see some sort of a response.

    I hope you can edit the HTML in here as I am terrible at it.. here is a rip off report link as well as the google info:

    I quote from Wikipedia:
    Another criticism against the BBB is the fact that its revenue comes from accredited businesses, raising the question about its partiality on handling disputes and complaints when the BBB may jeopardize its own funding.[citation needed] This criticism is refuted by the system as most BBB's routinely reject applications for accreditation and kick out businesses that are paying for accreditation when they violate the Standards of Trust as determined by the national Council. Many BBB's have lists on their local websites of rejected and revoked businesses.

    At minimum, BBB is supposed to notate complaints on the "Reliability Report" section of its web site[2]. If a branch does not act reasonably on behalf of a consumer, a complaint may be filed with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). BBB tries to associate with government entities and law enforcement; however, it is privately run by persons who seek to foster the health of companies. It can inequitably protect its members, despite their clearly offensive behaviors[3][4].

    Although recognized as a national body, each BBB entity is run separately, much like a franchise. Corporations that find themselves moving from one location to another (that falls in the jurisdiction of another BBB) cannot transfer their membership because one BBB franchise does not recognize another BBB franchise. A corporation must completely eradicate their membership from one BBB and then reapply in the new area.[citation needed] Any company record can be found, regardless of geographic location, by using their national database at which minimizes this concern."
