BBB is a diverse organization. We offer presentations at a number of community venues, host free community shredding events, and can be found weekly on Shaw during our TV news bite program ScamWATCH, that provides consumers with updates and tips on the latest scams impacting our community. BBB issues regular scam alerts and smart consumer purchasing tips via the News Centre on our website (vi.bbb.org) and through a variety of social media platforms. Before making any purchases you can check out a company’s BBB Business Review to ¿nd out whether they are accredited, how they are rated and their complaint history with the BBB. If you have a dispute with a company that cannot easily be remedied, you can ¿le a complaint with the BBB and we will help facilitate a reasonable resolution. For businesses, whether accredited or not, BBB provides a number of useful educational services, from best practices and dispute resolution tips on our website (vi.bbb. org), to articles in business magazines, on-site presentations and workshops. We also accept customer nominations each year for businesses that demonstrate excellent ethics and business standards at our annual Torch Award event. (Visit vi.bbb.org to download a Torch Award nomination form!) For businesses that have earned BBB Accreditation by passing a comprehensive screening process and agreeing to operate under the BBB Code of Business Practices, we have a number of programs to strengthen your commitment to trust in the marketplace. Accredited Businesses receive regular informative updates via our eNewsletter. They can enhance their online presence by customizing their BBB Business Reviews with pertinent information about their company and they can participate at no charge in our eQuote program.

4 The benefits of BBB accreditation hy should you seek accreditation by the Better Business Bureau serving Vancouver Island?

W

The reasons are many! BBB Accredited Businesses are part of an elite group whose accreditation guarantees to customers that the business can be trusted as a company. “Being a BBB Accredited Business means you are the best of the best, and committed to building relationships of trust with your customers,” says BBB serving Vancouver Island President and CEO Rosalind Scott. Accredited Businesses commit to advertise honestly, to be transparent about the business, to honour promises and to address marketplace disputes quickly, professionally and in good faith. Businesses pledge to safeguard privacy and ultimately to embody integrity, approaching “all business dealings, marketplace transactions and commitments with integrity.” A common misconception is that participation in the Better Business Bureau is a “membership.” In fact, accreditation is an earned privilege; they cannot buy membership and if circumstances warrant, accreditation can be revoked. To earn accreditation means the BBB has determined the business meets standards, including committing to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses pay a fee for accreditation review and monitoring and to support the BBB’s services to the public. Not every business can become accredited. Businesses must pass a comprehensive screening process before they are eligible; once accredited, businesses must operate under the BBB Code of Business Practices at all times. “Only those businesses that meet our stringent operational require-

ments, who can provide us with appropriate documentation of their practices and who contractually agree to our Standards of Trust can become accredited,” Scott notes.

Marty Schubert (Director – IPEN)

Beyond the signi¿cant trust bene¿ts a BBB Accredited Business enjoys with potential customers, accreditation offers a number of other practical bene¿ts, too. For example, Accredited Businesses and their employees receive substantial discounts from many local and national businesses via the BBB’s Af¿nity Program.

Past Chair

Accredited businesses operating within the region also earn a listing in the annual BBB directory, in which display advertising is also available, and are able to display the BBB Accredited Business seal in their advertising, at their place of business and on their website.

Links are also provided on the BBB website directly, and BBB Accredited Businesses can enhance their online presence by customizing their BBB Business Review with pertinent information about their company.

BBB: 100+ years of consumer protection and celebrating business excellence id you receive an unsolicited knock on the door from someone offering to provide home repairs - with payment up front?

If so, you weren’t alone. More than likely, you were also one of the many thousands of people across North America who turned for help in each of these situations to the Better Business Bureau. Founded more than 100 years ago to improve standards in advertising and business, the Better Business Bureau continues to protect consumers and celebrate good business practices. By the 1920s, the new threat of stock swindlers expanded the organization’s focus, leading to an information campaign to protect consumers through education - steps the BBB continues to take today.

Being a responsible consumer begins before purchase By Jennifer Blyth hen it comes to the business/ consumer relationship, much has been written about the idea of corporate responsibility.

W

But what about consumer responsibility? Consider the case of Mr. Smith, who has a new roof installed with a 20-year warranty on labour and supplies. Thirteen years later, Mr. Smith converts his home’s attic into two bedrooms and a bathroom, a renovation he completes himself, not with a hired contractor. At year 17 since installation, the roof starts to leak and Mr. Smith tries unsuccessfully to ¿x the roof himself. At this point, he returns to the company that installed the roof, asking for it to be replaced at no charge. Upon inspection, the roofer ¿nds that because a fundamental change to the structure of the house and airÀow has occurred since the original roof installation, and because the con-

sumer has made personal attempts to ¿x the roof, technically the warranty on the roof is void. To ¿nd a compromise, the roofer offers to cover the costs of labour to replace the roof, but not the supplies. Over the 17 years, however, the cost of roof replacement has increased dramatically and the cost of the supplies alone is equal to what Mr. Smith paid for the entire roof 17 years ago. He is irate and refuses anything but total replacement of his roof at no cost. What went wrong? As a consumer, Mr. Smith did not fully understand the terms of the warranty on the roof and does not recognize his responsibility for the situation. He is also not seeing the reasonableness and professionalism of the business in offering repairs. What should he have done? Involving the roo¿ng company and/or professional contractors in discussion about attic renovation and installation of bathroom likely would have identi¿ed how airÀow changes might impact the roof and found options to remedy those effects. Once leaks began, Mr. Smith should have contacted the roo¿ng company directly to aid repairs. Finally, he should have Continued on page 8

recognized his own responsibility and a reasonable win-win resolution when it was offered. Practicing Consumer Responsibility Developing a good relationship with a business begins before you walk in the door or pick up the phone. Prior to making a purchase, for example, a responsible consumer should understand what it is they want and do their research, explains Rosalind Scott, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Vancouver Island. “Comparison shop, check out company business reviews with the BBB, ask about licenses and professional accreditations, and ask for references and check them out.” In choosing the product or service that best ¿ts their needs, consumers must also decide what factors they most value and understand they can’t have it all. If the lowest price is most important, then they probably can’t expect top-end quality. If the timeline is urgent and/or higher quality is essential, expect to pay more. One of the ¿rst principles of a purchasing decision is to get it in writing. “Whether it’s a receipt or written service contract, read and understand the ¿ne print before signing or making a payment. Be sure to outline (and put in writing) any requirements you have as a consumer,” Scott notes. After deciding on a purchase, ensure you understand your rights and responsibilities, and any related terms and conditions, such as refund and exchange policies, termination clauses and warranties. It’s also essential to understand payment systems, including fees and deposit requirements. As with any relationship, good communication goes a long way. If your agreement is a larger ongoing project, schedule regular checkins and progress reports. Document any concerns you have in writing and keep a paper trail of conversations, emails, receipts, changes or amendments. “Don’t leave it up to the business,” Scott points out. “Make it your responsibility to track relevant information. If a problem does arise, attempt to address it immediately, calmly and professionally, with the people with the most inÀuence on the outcome. Look for reasonable resolutions that ¿t within industry standards.” If a reasonable solution can’t be found, consumers can contact the Better Business Bureau for more information and consider ¿ling a formal BBB complaint to have an independent third party help ¿nd a resolution.

Helping consumers & businesses resolve complaints One of the key roles the BBB serving Vancouver Island performs every day is the identifying of reliable businesses that strive to operate ethically. However despite best efforts, sometimes problems can arise. When that happens, the BBB can step in to help consumers and businesses negotiate differences to resolve complaints. Should you have a complaint you would like the BBB’s help with, what happens next? Everything a consumer submits regarding the complaint will be forwarded to the business within two business days, and the business is asked to respond within 14 days. If a response is not received, a second request will be made. The consumer will be noti¿ed of the business’s response when it’s received, or noti¿ed that no response has been received. The BBB is a neutral party in any dispute between a business and a consumer and does not get involved in legal proceedings, though it does work with police in tracking scams. Complaints are usually closed within 30 business days, but in the event of a dif¿cult-to-resolve complaint, BBB Complaint Investigations Of¿cers facilitate negotiations between businesses and their consumers. BBB Accredited Businesses are eligible for one-no charge mediation or arbitration each year to aid in resolving complaints. Complaints are closed based on reasonable resolutions and standard industry practices. Statistics show that it pays to look for that Better Business Bureau accreditation. BBB Accredited Businesses receive fewer Better Business Bureau complaints than non-accredited businesses and contractually agree to ¿nd a reasonable resolution for all BBB complaints. Non-accredited businesses, however, cannot be forced to respond to, or seek a reasonable resolution to a complaint, if the business chooses not to cooperate.

BBB’s Top 10 Scams of 2012: Protect Yourself from Becoming a Victim in 2013 What were the scams that most significantly impacted consumers on Vancouver Island last year? The Better Business Bureau serving Vancouver Island offers the following summary, along with some simple tips to help you avoid becoming a victim of fraud in 2013.

Protect Yourself from Becoming a Victim in 2012 Brand Spoofing: Brand spoofing or “phishing” is a general term for fraudulent email, text messages and websites designed to look like they come from well-known, trusted businesses, organizations, financial institutions or government agencies. Using this identity, scammers typically lure victims into giving out personal or financial information, or downloading viruses or spyware onto computers or mobile devices. Consumer Tip: Simply delete these emails and do not click on any links. If you are a victim of ID theft, call your financial institutions to have them cancel your cards and re-issue new ones. 1. Social Media Scams Social networking sites are being targeted with offers to download apps, freebies and discounts or to click on hyperlinks to activate or de-activate accounts. Clicking on a malicious link often results in a virus or spyware being downloaded to your computer or smart phone. Consumer Tip: Always be on the look out for phishing scams. Be wary of any posts that come from unknown sources. Don’t be duped into too-good-to-be-true offers. Ensure you have good anti-virus protection on all your smartphones and computers.

2. Door-To-Door Scams Door-to-door scams are a problem every year. BBB received reports in 2012 about a variety of door-to-door solicitations from service repair people using aggressive tactics, performing poor quality work, demanding cash payment up front or requiring cheques to be made out to an individual, rather than a business. Consumer Tip: Don’t feel pressured to buy a product or have a service performed without researching the business first. Look up a company’s BBB Business Review (vi.bbb.org) before making a purchase or hiring a company. Get a written contract, read the fine print and make payments out directly to the company, not an individual.

3. Fake Charities With every natural disaster or community devastation, a host of fake charities pop up overnight hoping to rip-off caring donors. Beware unfamiliar charities soliciting donations via social media, email or door-to-door, that claim 100 per cent of donations will assist victims, that use high-pressure solicitation tactics, that ask you to pay by cash, or that do not issue receipts.

Brent Jansen Plumbing & Heating 2012 Ltd.

Consumer Tip: Only give to reputable, wellknown organizations. Look up charities with CRA and BBB before donating. Remember that legitimate charities want a paper trail for tax purposes. Keep records of your donations, including receipts, cancelled cheques and bank statements. When possible, consider a planned approach to making donations.

4. Identity Theft ID theft occurs when someone uses your personal and financial information to obtain credit cards, loans or goods and services without your consent or knowledge. People often learn they are victims of ID theft after they are contacted by a collections agency for bills that have not been paid. Consumer Tip: Techno-savvy scammers steal personal information most commonly via brand spoofing or phishing scams – creating malicious hyperlinks that direct you to fill out personal financial information, or by providing downloads that install spyware. Other common ID theft scams include mail fraud, dumpster diving and family, friends or employees stealing bank account information.

5. Point-of-Sale (POS) Scams Protecting your debit, credit card numbers and PIN information is vital when paying for an item. Fraudulent skimmers or scanning devices can be used at point-of-sale terminals at bars, gas stations, ATMs etc. to steal your private financial information. Skimming devices can be difficult to detect and scams may include false keypads, magnetic strip readers and hidden cameras.

Consumer Tip: Always keep your debit and credit cards in sight when paying for an item. Be aware of your surroundings when withdrawing money or paying for an item. Be sure no one is watching you enter your PIN. If something seems suspicious about a point-of-sale device report it immediately. Never allow a sales assistant to swipe your card through a second machine. Regularly monitor your financial statements.

6. Texting Scams Unethical advertisers have been reported to send text messages to mobile users offering discounts, deals or other opportunities, which result in victims being tricked into signing up for monthly services with expensive additional fees, or into providing personal information that is sold to affiliate companies and unethical marketers. Consumer Tip: Use extreme caution when dealing with unsolicited text messages. Do not respond to texts from any numbers that you do not recognize. Always read the fine print and privacy policies carefully before signing up for any services or opportunities. If you are curious about a promotional opportunity contact the company directly to inquire about the details.

7. Credit Repair Scams Using the name of the Credit Counseling Society of BC or other reputable agencies, unethical credit repair companies have been soliciting by phone offering to consolidate debt or repair credit ratings. Personal and financial information is collected,

Think you’ve found a scam? f you’ve been the victim of a scam - or attempted scam - or have spotted a problem ad, what should you do?

I

Report it! Quite simply, the Better Business Bureau can’t learn about the scope of a problem, or a new scam, if people don’t let them know, explains Rosalind Scott, President and CEO of the BBB serving Vancouver Island, who regularly speaks to groups around the community about consumer protection issues. Typically, people feel embarrassed if they think they’ve been scammed, or taken advantage of, but the truth is that people just like them around the region and around the continent, are falling prey to similar problems, whether it was giving out personal information, paying for a phony or never-completed service or buying into a too-goodto-be-true product. The issue can be ampli¿ed with seniors, who may not want to reveal the problem to their families for fear of seeming incapable, or because it’s a friend or family member who is taking advantage of them, Scott notes. The bottom line is that to put a stop to the problem and stop others from becoming victims, the BBB and police need to know. As part of its mandate, “the BBB conducts regular investigations into companies that are reported to be conducting unethical business practices,” Scott explains. “We also investigate suspicious and unethical business operations and work with local law enforcement agencies to reduce fraud in the marketplace.” In addition, the BBB’s Advertising Review program protects the marketplace by encouraging self-regulation and fair competition. The BBB reviews television, radio, print and internet advertising of all businesses in the region to ensure it meets its Code of Advertising. “The BBB believes that the primary responsibility for truthful and non-deceptive advertising rests with the advertiser,” Scott says. Stay informed with BBB

• The BBB provides consumers and businesses with educational workshops, seminars, brochures, tips and best practices information. • The BBB has many services and programs available to aid businesses and their employees in operating in an ethical and trustworthy manner.

Continued from page 9 and advance service fees are charged, without any legitimate services being provided. Consumer Tip: Most services being offered by unethical credit repair companies can be performed yourself at no cost. The only people that can permanently remove a record from your credit report are the credit bureau or the creditor (lender). Independently research and comparison shop for the best debt consolidation options available to you.

8. Senior Home Repair Scams Unscrupulous, often unqualified fraudsters claiming to be renovation or repair contractors or handymen, continue to take advantage of unsuspecting seniors. Beware unsolicited offers to complete projects with no written contract, requests for payment up front and aggressive or high-pressure sales tactics. Consumer Tip: Be suspicious of handymen that solicit door-to-door, use embarrassment as a sales tactic or who are intimidating. Call the police if someone will not leave your property when requested. Before starting any project, check the company out with the BBB, get references, comparison shop and get a detailed written contract.

9. Online Shopping The most common online shopping scams include: stolen gift cards, phishing scams and counterfeit products. The key to protecting yourself is to do your research, always know who you are doing business with, and protect your private information. Consumer Tip: In most cases if you are actively seeking out a legitimate, reputable online shopping site, you are cautious with your private information and you are not lured into unsolicited too-good-to be true offers, you should have a safe, enjoyable and even stressfree online shopping experience.

• Find regular updates on scams and frauds impacting our community in the News Centre: vi.bbb.org/bbb-news • Tune in to Shaw Cable for the weekly ScamWATCH: vi.bbb.org/scamwatch

A wide variety of scams takes place via online classified and auction sites, such as eBay, Craigslist and Used Victoria (as well as others). Sometimes the seller is the con artist, lying about contact information, posting fake product information or failing to ship the purchased item. Other times the buyer is the scam artist using a stolen credit card, attempting an overpayment scam or lying about not receiving an item. Consumer Tip: Before participating in online classifieds or auction sites, be sure to research the site itself to make sure it is reputable. Find out about what policies or practices are in place to protect you from fraud. Before doing business with a buyer or seller, be sure to investigate any peer reviews about them. Know the risks of doing business with a stranger and use extreme caution.
