This is the case of the big guy using its monopoly power to carelessly squash the little guy. I took over the family business that my father incorporated in 1977.
I filled out a credit profile and honestly reported that the business started in 1977. The D&B employee said that even though the business was originally filed in 1977, because we sell different products now than were originally sold in 1977 that my answer was fraudulent. That is a lie. Dun & Bradstreet asked “Date Business Started” on their form.
They did not ask, “What is the date that you last changed what type of products you sold?” Not only did they erroneously place a “high risk” credit rating on my company but they put a “high risk” on thousands of our client’s companies that have done business with us for which we serve as corporate registered agent through another one of our companies. I demand these things: 1. Remove the “severe risk” credit rating from my business profile at once. 2.
Change how you word your credit profile forms so that a reasonable human being can understand what you mean by your questions. It should be crystal clear. Not a mystery. 3.
Remove the “severe risk” credit rating from all of my companies that were rated such as a result of the above. 4. Remove the “severe risk” rating from my client’s companies for which we serve as registered agent that were rated such as a result of the above. With the clients I have, I can have thousands of letters written to our federal and state legislators start regulating the business credit industry.
This careless destruction of the little guy by this big behemoth must be stopped!
