Senior NAAS-NEWS Editors and Publishers return from an extended holiday vacation in time to take in key NFL playoff matches, and to re-investigate the operations of Better Business Bureau chapters in general, and the Idaho-based BBB chapter in particular.
The first ever BBB Report on a BBB chapter by any organization was National Academy of American Scholars in or about 1993. That NAAS template and report has been copied by numerous so-called consumer organizations, and led to an investigation of the Southland BBB by the local Orange-County based Orange County Register newspaper.
Numerous consumers and business owners aired their opinions and formed a common conclusion. Many felt that the BBB chapters were corrupt and served as shakedown enterprises that awarded dues-paying BBB members at the expense of providinh honest services to consumers. The issue is whether or not federal tax dollars should be used that allow federal agencies to provide hyperlinks (and thus implicit endorsement) of Better Business Bureau chapters.
What consumers must understand is the fact that National Academy of American Scholars is perhaps the only organization that, in the early 1990s, was willing to challenge the credibility, leadership structure, and integrity of the BBB in general.
At that time, no reporter in the U.S. of America had the courage or the will power initiate a sustained effort. NAAS Media teams amassed more information and details on key BBB employees, its structure, and business practices, and even the personal lives of key BBB employees. than any media organization in America.
The award-winning NAAS report led to several immediate changes within the BBB system, and pressure from federal agencies to adopt a uniform consumer-reporting system.
However, recent evidence seems to suggest that some certain BBB chapters appear to have a short memory, and have regressed back to their fraudulent ways.
The previous BBB report edited and drafted in 1993 is currently deposited in the NAAS Subscriber area. There is internal debate if this report should be uploaded to a public NAAS-NEWS channel to demonstrate the superior investigative ability and writing of NAAS reporters, while exposing the scam tactics of several BBB chapters .
At issue in 2010, however, is a sting operation against the BBB of Southwest Idaho & Eastern Oregon, and its ties to very suspicious, fraudulent, and corrupt Idaho-based businesses. BBB chapters in Idaho must bear in mind that their moral superior remains National Academy of American Scholars. Therefore, when decisions are made to serve as personal advocates of corrupt Idaho-based businesses rather than behave as indifferent intermediaries, a complaint of fraud is one of several possible allegations that can be raised against the BBB.
An NAAS Media report is about to be released that raises serious questions about the integrity,character, and honesty of Idaho-based BBB employees, and their ability to provide honest services to consumers who complain about BBB businesses that bought BBB memberships. This Publisher assigned a grade of 'F' to BBB Accredited member Fiberpipe, Inc. on the basis of detailed complaint filed with the BBB of Idaho.
However, instead of processing the complaint as an indifferent intermediary per its filed mission statements with the I.R.S., evidence suggests that the Better Business Bureau of Idaho instead serves as a personal advocate or counsel to Idaho-based businesses suspected of fraud.
This fact is not very surprising given the fact that fraud in Idaho is so rampant, and routinely permitted amongst state agencies.
If you have similar complaints against the BBB of Idaho, or BBB-accredited member Fiberpipe, Inc., and wish to share your complaints, or concerns with an NAAS Publisher or NAAS writer, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have videos of BBB employees or persons mentioned in NAAS media reports, please submit videos to NAAS Youtube channel.
Please note the use of the BBB seal is for newsreporting purposes only. National Academy of American Scholars has already exposed the fact that a BBB accredited seal or 'A+' ranking by a typical BBB chapter is as worthless as grounded dirt at a dinner table.
