The Ultimate Buyer's Guide
- Oct. 16, 2013 -
If you're waiting for a company to be designed to help people buy cars whom have trouble buying, or hate dealing with dealership, & they would do it for you, then wait no more; it's here! Car Buyer's Etcetera an Auto Buying Consulting Business, designed to help women purchase. But, if your waiting on the BBB in Houston, Tx to restore it's Excellent A+Rating as they (themselves)
have giving CBE since it became a Licensed Auto Buying Consulting Business in Houston, TX, you'll have to wait for the verdict. Why? Because that's where this is seemingly headed. As almost a sick joke, says Oliver E. Gabriel, owner of Car Buyer's Etcetera, our rating literally changed over nite, as well as our posting of what our business is, to justify their rating. Samantha Durham, Dispute Resolution Manager changed the rating for CBE 4 times in 6 &1/2 months, tauting that CBE was not a licensed broker. "And she is right, because we are not brokers, nor dealers". We have recorded conversations with the BBB & our rating sheets over the BBB's webpage since this drama has un-folded over recent past. While we know we have rattled some cages with our business, especially with Car Dealers who don't want you to know how they are ripping you off, we didn't expect an Organization like the BBB in Houston, to jump on the BAND WAGON. Well, since they can't join us, they sought to silence us! By using the Better Business Bureau in Houston, TX, some small Dealers have made themselves judge, jury, and executioner OVER YOUR BUSINESS (on how they can sell you), & OVER a business that they believe threathen their profits. How does CBE do this: our Buyer's Guide, "What The Car Salesman Won't Tell You~We Will!" A True Guide designed for Women, putting you on the same level playing field! And, "We don't deal with Buy Here/Pay Here Car Lots, because we feel it is the Biggest Rip Off of Minority Women!" These places wait for your hard earned tax dollars every year, selling you the most troublesome cars, knowing you have no defense against a piece of paper, called "AS IS-NO WARRANTY!" And as for the BBB,, Well don't take my word for it, click the links below. Now, Car Buyer's Etcetera has only 12 complaints recorded with the BBB Houston in 17 years; & 12 closed because we were found to be within our contracts. Yet, one overzealous person with the BBB, whom feathers were rubbed the wrong way, & has her hand on a button that controls the supposed faith of any business she chooses not to like, has branded our business (ONLY IN Houston) with an A+, A-, B, F, C, D, No Rating, F, & back to B- over a period of only less than that of 12 months. At first I was concerned, but found we are in good company, for we have found out we are not the only ones who's refused Accreditation on tape, and have suffered ratings, UN-BECOMING of their business. The BBB makes money charging for Grades; A Pay for Play Scheme! They said we may be operating without a license, when we brought proof positive to their office, 3x's, to Sandra Durham of the BBB, from the Comptroller's Office in Austin, Texas; stating, that our business does not need a license as a dealer... At recent, I visited for the recorded 9th time to the BBB in Houston, telling them of my dismay for their tactics. They sought to silence me by sending an email to my office stating I would be ask to leave by security if I came back to talk about my business and it's False Rating they've imposed,,, Then suddenly we were back at a B- with no complaints, and were told we weren't going to be offered Accreditation, EVER!.... Of the complaints; resolved that were there, they were supposed to be dropped off after 3 years from the complaint date, and it is now 7 years we have been here, same complaints resolved but still showing, in Houston, still there, as the same people who is running shop. This seems to be a Click. I have been to the media, yet, no resolve, for the BBB and certain T.V. Stations are in Partnership. That was a waste of gas! The BBB is now being talked about Nationwide as A Scam Artist Organization, whereby the President of the BBB Head Quarters, walked out of a Televised meeting Interview with Brian Ross of ABC News, because he could not answer various questions about their operations, and the excessive fees they charge to strong arm businesses, nationwide! This is the same organization which gave an A+ to a Group calling themselves "Hamas", a Hate Group, and to another group calling themselves a White Supremacist Group, (both prank groups; devised by men wanting to prove one thing) that the BBB sells RATINGS! AND, THEY WERE CORRECT! They offered the Groups to the BBB, and within minutes, they were up and running with A+ Ratings, able to Rip people off just by saying they were A+ Rated with the BBB. And yes, the BBB as a business... They never check them or screened them... They just gave them an A+ for the fee of $400+ dollars! In Houston, Texas alone... The Houston BBB, where Sandra Durham, Monica Russo, & a host of others I've spoken to about our erroneous information on our BBB page, has allowed various construction, and/or roofing companies to pay for an A+ rating, come into Houston during Hurricane Ike, ravish Business owners and Home owners with cost into the hundreds of thousands with Shotty & Poor work done, whereby insurance claims were paid to these fake companies, and the companies never came back to fix, or finish jobs. Plus; as quick as they came to Houston, they were gone, websites shut down, when they couldn't find no more claims; non-existent, and no longer paying the Houston Better Business Bureau to seem ACCREDITED.. Nonetheless, these businesses were allowed to wear the HOUSTON'S BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU'S COVETED SEAL, AS IF THEY HAD BEEN SUPREMELY APPROVED, AND VETTED AS COMPANY. You trusted these fake companies; for what, because they paid a fee of $425.00 to the BBB of Houstoon, giving Houstonians false senses of security that they were legitimate. The BBB of Houston Got Paid,,, Houstonians Got Ripped Off! But don't take my word for it, click on any of the links below, and see why Car Buyer's Etcetera, will Never Pay for a Rating. We confronted the BBB thru an email, and they told us, they had FREEDOM Of SPEECH to Say What They Wanted!
NOTE; If you're opening a business, Do Not Believe your business will thrive just because you have the BBB Seal on your door. Send their package back! It merely states you've paid for a rating! Earn that from your customers! We do it, EVERYDAY! Many States are stepping up, seeing what the BBB is doing! One Governor has ask that they be looked into for their strong arm tactics, and their Pay for Play Scheme! I guess I'm protected by "Freedom of Speech" also, Ms Durham. https://feefighters.com/blog/the-bbb-is-a-scam/http://cincinnati.com/blogs/tv/2010/11/12/cincinnati-bbb-...http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/video/wolfgang-puck-12132380Photo:
