BBB-1

Message from the President & CEO Community Engagement is About Giving Back! At BBB we have high expectations in regards to how we expect Accredited Businesses to behave and operate. And at BBB serving Vancouver Island we believe in practicing what we preach. An important part of building a trustworthy marketplace requires engaging with the people that make up that community. Genuine engagement begins with connecting, listening and caring about those around you.

Rosalind Scott President & CEO of BBB serving Vancouver Island

We expect that in order for our Accredited Businesses to be successful they will find innovative ways to stay connected and engaged with their customers, their staff, the community around them and the other businesses that help to support them. We believe it is just as much our responsibility as a supportive non-profit organization to do the same.

Promoting Trust & Ethics Special Thanks to our Community Partners

To help improve our community engagement we have launched a variety of new programs at BBB. The first is our Scam Tracker program. Scam Tracker is a new interactive online tool designed to help consumers report scams and frauds, while assisting enforcement agencies in better tracking and understanding the impact of scams on the local, national and international community. The second program is a new consumer feedback service known as BBB Customer Reviews. Consumers have been asking for additional ways to share their experiences (other than just through the complaint process) about companies they do business with. The new Customer Review feature now allows consumers to post positive, negative or neutral reviews about marketplace experiences with businesses, brands and charities. This new system also provides an opportunity for businesses to respond to consumers, while helping BBB to better understand what we can do to support relationships built on trust and ethics in our local marketplace. Worthy of note as well, this year we are partnering with HeroWork (herowork. com) — a registered charity whose vision is to create a community infrastructure renewal movement across Canada and beyond. Together, along with a number of Accredited Businesses and other organizations we will participate in a Radical Community Renovation project for the locally run, mainly volunteer-driven Rainbow Kitchen working out of the Esquimalt United Church. The Rainbow Kitchen serves 36,000 meals a year to the poor and disenfranchised and is in desperate need of a dramatic overhaul. If you are interested in supporting this project, go to herowork.com to make a donation, become a fundraiser or explore other ways to get involved! Whether you are a business or a consumer, we strongly encourage you to find ways to get involved in your local community, to build relationships of respect and trust with those with whom you share your neighbourhood. Besides, it feels good to spread a little genuine loving kindness! ~

BBB Torch Awards – A Celebration of Ethics

This event is a very special awards night because consumers are the ones driving the nomination processes. Each year BBB receives hundreds of nominations from consumers who have truly been grateful and amazed by the ethical service they received from a local business. Torch Award finalists and winners are then honoured by their peers for their demonstration of trust, reliability, fairness, honesty and respect in their business practices. At BBB we believe our Accredited Businesses really do stand out from the crowd when it comes to building relationships of trust in the marketplace. We get very excited each year when the opportunity arises to not only celebrate ethics, but to have some good old-fashioned fun with the many local and Accredited Businesses that make Vancouver Island a thriving marketplace.

of consumers claimed that reviews impact their buying decisions.

BBB Customer Reviews: Helping Consumers Stay Informed This past year BBB launched a new consumer feedback service known as BBB Customer Reviews. BBB Customer Reviews allow consumers to post positive, negative or neutral reviews about marketplace experiences with businesses, brands and charities.

88%

of consumers read up to 10 reviews before they trust a business

68%

Consumers say positive reviews make them trust local businesses more

80%

Consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations

Review sites are popular because they offer a forum for people to leave comments about their experience with a business. The power of customer reviews coupled with BBB’s detailed business information gives the public even more reason to use BBB as a one-stop, free resource!

92%

Consumers read reviews to determine quality of a local business

Just like our complaints, reviews are vetted by BBB team members and sent to the business before they are published online. Consumers, upon request of BBB and businesses, must be able to provide substantiation of the marketplace interactions. It is also important to note that a customer cannot leave a review if they have already filed a formal BBB complaint about their experience and vice versa. Customer reviews do not affect a company’s BBB letter grade.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS CAN CREATE

A POSITIVE IMAGE FOR BUSINESSES:

204%

94%

more likely to be viewed as offering quality products or services

more likely to be viewed as a reputable business

199%

more likely to be viewed as caring about its customers

Office Hours: Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm

For more than 100 years, BBB has been a trusted resource in our marketplace. The additional information and current feedback in customer reviews is something consumers have told us is important to them when they chose to work with trustworthy businesses. Businesses like the idea too! It allows them to highlight some of the positive customer experiences (not just complaint information) on BBB’s website. Ultimately, BBB customer reviews help both consumers and businesses make wise purchasing decisions. However, it is important to note that Customer Reviews are the subjective opinion of the individual who posted the review and not of Better Business Bureau. BBB cannot guarantee the accuracy of any customer review and is not responsible for the content of any customer review.

WE SPECIALIZE IN: • All plumbing services - hot water tanks, etc. • Sewer & drain tile cleaning • Camera inspections • Natural gas installation licence We have been serving the community for 20 years and firmly believe in an open and direct dialogue with all of our clients, regardless of the size of the job.

Why BBB Customer Reviews are Different: True to form, BBB processes customer reviews in an ethical, fair, unbiased manner and we do it consistently! •

BBB staff review each and every customer review before it is posted online.

Our review process provides an opportunity to challenge the identity of the reviewer before the review is posted — not allowing anyone to post fake or ill-intended reviews.

BBB does not post any anonymous reviews.

BBB also sends the submission to the business, allowing the business to provide additional feedback to help address the reviewer’s issues.

BBB protects the identity of the submissions by not posting personally identifiable information.

BBB validates the email address of all reviewers.

In some instances works with both consumers and businesses to help work through the issues.

BBB uses the data to help investigate businesses.

How to Submit a Customer Review: Customer reviews may be submitted directly from any BBB Business Review via our bbb.org/vancouver-island. For consumer convenience, some businesses may choose to have a direct link (or button) from their website to their customer review page on bbb.org/vancouver-island. Once submitted, the reviewer will be required to confirm the review and their email address, in order for the review process begin. A valid email address is required to post customer reviews on BBB.org. No verbal reviews will be accepted. BBB offers the opportunity for customers to share their experiences with business via customer reviews. Like others that offer reviews, we’d like to be able to promise honest reviews from real customers, all the time. But like all review sites, our experience shows that is almost impossible to guarantee.

When BBB receives a customer review on a specific business we send a confirmation to the email address of the reviewer, to ensure that the email address is real and a real person is there. BBB will not post a review for which it does not receive a validation email. BBB also examines customer reviews to ensure there is no rude or questionable content included. Once the reviewer confirms the email address, we then send the review to the business (usually via email). The business has approximately three to ten days to respond to the customer review or to contact BBB to let us know of any issues that may be related to the review. Once a review has been properly considered by BBB and the business, the review is labeled as a “BBB Verified Review” and posted online. BBB has the right to not post any reviews we believe may be false. As you read any customer review, including BBB’s, please keep in mind customer reviews are not an exact science, but another tool to help you make wise purchasing decisions. We recommend you read multiple reviews from a variety of trusted sources and encourage you to share your experiences with others via our BBB Customer Review service.

Scam Tracker: BBB Launches New Online Fraud Reporting Tool BBB’s across North America have launched a new online web tool known as Scam Tracker that allows consumers a simplified process to report scams and frauds, and to warn others of malicious activities. The free interactive online tool – found at bbb.org/ scamtracker – offers a heat map showing where scams are being reported. Users can search using a variety of filters to see what scams are happening in their area, or track a particular type of scam, or even see how much money has been lost. Users can also report scams that they hear about, whether or not they have fallen victim.

SCAM TRACKER Find out where scams are happening. Be alert.

Scam Tracker is now available in all 112 BBB’s operating in Canada and the United States. The online tool began beta testing in 2014 among nine different BBBs. A grant from Target Corporation enabled the international Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) to expand the service to all BBBs in Canada and the U.S. BBB Mexico is expected to join in the future.

bbb.org/scamtracker

“BBB helps consumers connect with businesses they trust, and warns them about dishonest practices,” said Rosalind Scott, President and CEO of BBB serving Vancouver Island. “BBB has always been able to track specific information about businesses as part of the complaint process, and that procedure continues to evolve and grow, with nearly five million BBB Business Reviews. Scammers are different – they hone their techniques as they leave a trail of victims. As a crowd sourced tool with a human touch, BBB Scam Tracker exposes their fraudulent activity in real time.”

enforcement. For example scam reports are being sent to the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA) in the US for analysis and collaboration with law enforcement to help stop the most flagrant scammers through prosecution and other legal means.”

“BBB processes nearly a million complaints a year against legitimate businesses, but perpetrators of scams are not interested in resolving matters… even if they could be located,” said Scott.

BBBs also routinely share information on scams with federal and provincial agencies, and local law enforcement, and will make the data available to agencies in other countries to help shut down scammers based overseas. Scam Tracker reports will also prompt BBB tips and alerts, or serve as the basis for investigations, news releases, warnings, and trends analysis.

“The data collection process for BBB Scam Tracker was designed to generate information that can be useful to law

TOP 10 SCAMS, FRAUDS AND THINGS TO WATCH FOR IN 2016 1. CRA Collection Scam

Aggressive telemarketers pretending to represent the Canadian Revenue Agency used aggressive and threatening tactics to scare taxpayers into paying a fictitious tax return debt. Victims were told they must make payment immediately by credit card (regular or pre-paid) or face court charges, jail or deportation.

CONSUMER TIP:

The CRA never requests payment for taxes by prepaid credit card, or private information you’d not already include on your tax return, such as passport, health or driver’s license numbers. CRA never leaves personal information in a message, or asks you to leave a message with personal information. If you have an outstanding CRA balance you’ll likely receive written notification well before phone contact. If you receive a suspicious call, hang up. For tax concerns about contact CRA at 1.800.959.5525.

2. Unclaimed Prize Scam

Automated phone recordings pretending to come from legitimate airlines, hotels or vacation booking agents lured consumers into believing they were eligible to win a vacation prize. When consumers tried to claim the prize they were connected to an operator that insisted on acquiring personal and credit card information to secure the winnings. No prize was ever received.

CONSUMER TIP:

payment, and told to download an anti-virus program.

CONSUMER TIP:

Computer manufacturers will not contact you about a problem with your computer. Computer upgrades, maintenance and virus scanning are the owner’s responsibility. Treat all unsolicited contact with skepticism. Never provide personal or banking details unless you’re confident of the source. Report fraudulent activity to your BBB (250.386.6348) and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (1.888.495.8501).

4. Imposters Phishing Scam

No one is immune! Many computer virus and phishing scams masquerade as emails or websites of legitimate businesses and organizations. Using the logo and good name of reputable charities, non-profits, banks, government agencies and businesses, scam artists send out legitimate looking, but fake links designed for you to click on so they can install malware on your computer or steal your private information.

CONSUMER TIP:

Never open an email, click on links or download files unless you’re certain you understand why you’re receiving the email. If you ever think you might have been the victim of a phishing or other computer, email or Internet scam, have your computer scanned by a trusted computer repair professional to see if any malware is present.

Most legitimate airline, hotels and vacation booking agents don’t use telemarketing promotions, solicitations or unsolicited giveaways. Before giving out personal details to “claim” a prize, ask for details of the prize in writing and carefully read the fine print. Some vacation giveaways may cost you more than you are willing to pay.

5. Vacation Rental Scam

3. Computer Virus Telemarketing Scam

CONSUMER TIP:

Fraudsters aggressively target (by phone, email and online pop ups) consumers by pretending to represent Microsoft or Apple, saying their computer is infected with a virus. To “fix” the problem, the victim is directed to a website, asked to provide credit card information as

BBB-7

Tourists renting condos or homes from private homeowner/renters found themselves out-of-luck and out of money when vacation rentals were fake, in disrepair, promised more than they offered or were unexpectedly cancelled with no refund. To avoid vacation nightmares, do careful research and work with a reliable, professional rental agent to find a vacation home rental. If you use a third-party website or professional service to connect with a renter, always check it at bbb.org. Be sure the house or apartment can legally be

situations include giving out private information about home or family, risking identity theft and robbery.

6. Fraudulent Kiosk Vendor

When shopping online use extreme caution and ensure you understand who you’re doing business with and the risk associated with doing business with strangers. Ask detailed questions about the product or service. Ensure you understand fair market value. If meeting for an in-person trade, do so in a public location or have another person around. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!

Customers reported dissatisfaction with products and services provided by transient kiosk vendors. Often at markets, festivals, fairs and shopping centres, kiosk vendors represent a wide range of large and small businesses, some legitimate, some not. A scammer, operating a temporary kiosk and using the name of a legitimate business, tricked victims into paying for services that were never rendered.

CONSUMER TIP:

Before making a purchase at a kiosk, ask how you can contact the vendor should you need to. Ask about their return and exchange policy. Get a written receipt clearly outlining the product purchased and the vendor’s contact details. Understand the risks associated with shopping from a kiosk vendor. Once you make a purchase there may be little you can do if you are dissatisfied.

7. Smishing (SMS Phishing)

Bogus text messages lure recipients into unknowingly accepting large monthly charges to their credit card or downloading a virus or malware onto a smart phone or mobile device. Smishing texts often use “trending” news and entertainment topics, or aggressive threats of fakebillings to lure victims to a fraudulent website where they’re asked for details such as credit cards or passwords.

CONSUMER TIP:

Don’t take the bait. Avoid promotions with phrases like “exclusive,” “shocking” or “sensational.” Don’t click on any links in a text unless you are certain where it’s going or what you’ll be downloading. Don’t respond to texts from unknown sources. Don’t fall for texted prize opportunities. Few banks, financial institutions and businesses text you if there’s an issue with your account. Contact them directly if you have any reason for concern.

8. Online Stranger Danger

Consumers using online secondhand shopping and social media sites have been ripped off or given out private information to a stranger. Rip-offs include products misrepresented, fake or broken, paying too much or paying for but never receiving the item. Other dangerous

CONSUMER TIP:

9. Helpful Harry/Helen

Homeowners and renters can land in hot water hiring helpful neighbours, local teens, or “in the area” contractors to help with home, yard and vehicle maintenance. Sometimes victims are ripped off, other times the work completed was of poor quality, cost more to repair or was unfinished. Or accidental injuries left homeowner/renters with unexpected lawsuits, medical bills and guilt.

CONSUMER TIP:

Before hiring anyone to help with home, yard or vehicle maintenance ensure they’re qualified. Outline in writing the expectations, work details and payment schedule. Don’t pay in full until work is completed as agreed. Ensure the person hired has sufficient insurance to cover any accidents and double check you have enough insurance to cover any unexpected circumstances on your property.

10. Counterfeit Merchandise

Online stores and auction sites market alluring, cheaply priced, counterfeit products pitched as the real thing. Legitimate Gucci handbags and Rolex watches do not come cheap, no matter what the sale price. Before you buy online, know the difference between a real and a fake.

CONSUMER TIP:

Protecting yourself from eShopping swindles means researching, understanding the product and knowing who you’re doing business with. Just as with a bricksand-mortar business, you want to know you can trust the seller. Use a secure payment system like a credit card or electronic escrow service.

PROTECT YOUR IDENTITY: SHRED DOCUMENTS REGULARLY

35

Getting into the habit of regularly and responsibly shredding private information is a vital step in protecting yourself from identity theft. It’s important to get into a scheduled routine of digging out any old receipts, bank or credit card statements, pay stubs, tax returns and investment information – and get them shredded! To help consumers stay on top of their annual build of sensitive documents, BBB serving Vancouver Island in partnership with Access Records and Media Management has hosted annual (by donation) community shredding events in Victoria for the past five years. Small businesses and consumers are invited to bring a maximum of five bags or five boxes of paper documents for secure onsite shredding in Access Records’ mobile shredding truck. Over $11,000 has been raised through these annual shredding events, all of which has been donated to different local charities each year. As well, more than 45,000 pounds or (1,800+ filing boxes) of confidential documents have been shredded. For more information about the next BBB shredding event, check out our website at bbb.org/Vancouver-island. Events are typically held in the spring of each year.

WHAT SHOULD I SHRED? All private financial and personal documents should be shredded when you no longer need them. (And be sure to store them in a safe, locked place while you need them!). The following are a few items that people often overlook when it comes to shredding:

Cancelled checks

Canceled checks with no long-term significance for tax or other purposes can be destroyed after one year. However, canceled checks that support tax returns, such as charitable contributions or tax payments, should be held for at least seven years – long enough to cover the sixyear tax assessment period. BBB advises that consumers

indefinitely keep any canceled checks and related receipts or documents for a home purchase or sale, renovations or other improvements to owned property, and nondeductible contributions to an individual retirement account.

Deposit, ATM, credit card and debit card receipts

Consumers should save credit, debit and ATM receipts until the transaction appears on their statement and they have verified that the information is accurate.

Credit card and bank account statements

Credit card and bank account statements with no tax or other long-term significance can be discarded after a year; remaining statements should be kept for up to seven years. If a consumer receives a detailed annual statement, they should keep it and shred the corresponding monthly statements.

Credit card contracts and other loan agreements

Credit card contracts and loan agreements should be kept for as long as the account is active in case the consumer has a dispute with their lender over the terms of the contract. SEE SHREDDING, PAGE 36

Documentation of a purchase or sale of stocks, bonds and other investments Investors should retain documentation of a purchase or sale for as long as they own the investment and then seven years beyond that time. Monthly retirement and monthly investment account statements can be shredded annually after being reconciled with the year-end statement.

BBB Presents! Hosting an event or workshop? Looking for an excellent public speaker?

Rosalind Scott, President & CEO of the BBB serving Vancouver Island is available FREE OF CHARGE to speak at any community event.

Paycheck Stubs Paycheck stubs can be shredded yearly after the income has been reconciled with a tax forms.

Utility or monthly bills Monthly bills should be shredded the year after being received by the consumer. This way, if it’s a power bill, for example, consumers can compare this month’s bill to last year’s bill for any major changes before shredding it.
