Information you need...to research a company.



Researching the validity of a company is easy to do when you know where to look. Below are links to resources to use. While the links are New York State specific, when researching a company, use the resources for the state that the company is based out of. And as a note of caution, remember that it is always easier to find a negative review of a company than a positive review.

Federal Trade Commission: Bureau of Consumer Protection

New York State Attorney General's Office: The Bureau of Consumer Frauds and Protection

New York State Better Business Bureau

Ripoff Report: For Consumers, By Consumers

Consumer Reports, Complaints, and Company Reviews at Pissed Consumer

Also check the local county or city licensing bureau for company licensing information.
