If you have a customer that is stubborn and avoiding paying you for your services, consider trying our collection letter. Most agencies require you to pay a 20-30% when you use their service. But at Business Beware™, if you collect money owed to you with our letter, you do not owe us a thing. To get more information on how to send a letter to your customer, click here.

I have been aware of Business Beware™ for quite a while. I watch Ashley's Tweets and visit the site for updates. Why? Being a former Better Business Bureau board member, I felt we didn't give the businesses enough of an opportunity to prove themselves innocent before being accused of being guilty. I find this even with Pay Pal. Someone can accuse you first. You pay the price. And "then you have to prove yourself innocent."
Business Beware™ allows businesses an opportunity to demonstrate that the customer is not always right. And that sometimes the customer complains knowing they can be rewarded for doing so, even if the reward is not justified.
Business Beware™ does not play "heavy hand" with customers or clients of their member. And they due their due diligence before deciding any coarse of action.
What a gift to finally have someone who is on the side of the business. Ashley and her father know and understand firsthand what it is like to have non-paying customers and clients.
Business Beware™ is YOUR site and advocate. Business Beware™ ROCKS!

“I’d been trying for 5 months to collect payment for services rendered from a client – complete with sending a registered letter threatening legal action! Still no response. I turned to Business Beware™, and their letter did the trick. I finally heard from the client, and collected payment. Thank you Business Beware™!"
“Business Beware™ worked like a charm! After 12 months of sending statements and placing unreturned phone calls I found the Business Beware™ website. One week after getting them the info about my deadbeat customer I received a check in the mail from them. I highly recommend them!”
-Michael Biggs (Home Office & Cabinetry)
"I had tried unsuccessfully for several months to get a client to pay their balance. One day after Business Beware™ sent a collection letter the client paid in full. You must give BusinessBeware.biz a try before going through the hassle of Small Claims Court!"
-Larry T. San Diego, CA
"Since November of '09 I tried collecting from a customer with my catering business that had yet to pay and a friend told me about Business Beware™ and the collection letter. I decided to try it out before using a collection agency and I am so glad I did! I contacted them to send the letter and they got it out that day to the customer and about five days later I had a check from that customer! I was absolutely stunned and amazed because I had tried contacting this customer for over two months with no luck! You have to give this a try, it's such an amazing service!"
-Courtney O. Wilmington, NC
"It's a sad fact that business owners will be forced to deal with difficult customers at some point. There is nothing more frustrating than a customer who refuses to pay for the product or service your business has supplied to them. If you are in business long enough, you will eventually hear every excuse possible, even some that will make you think, "Did they really just say that?" Fortunately, the customer is not always right and a down economy is not an excuse to become a dead-beat. When you consider the choices on recouping money owed by a customer, considering the cost of hiring a lawyer, many business owners choose to let it go and "eat" their loses. However, there is an additional option guaranteed to save you money and eliminate the hassle of collections; BusinessBeware.biz. As a BuisnessBeware member, I know that I have access to the same powerful collection tools as high-priced lawyers at a fraction of the cost. I will never pay a single penny in court and legal fees to collect money from uncooperative customers again. Business Beware™ is my one stop solution to collect the money I'm owed."

"After I joined Business Beware™, I started using the site to search and post about customers I have delt with in the past and here recently. When I sent out late notices and received notes back with excuses for why they (the customer) were not going to pay, I kindly wrote them back but also said there is a site where we can let others know about non-paying customers...They quickly sent a check that following week! Use this site to your advantage and maybe the customer will cooperate with you! Thank you for this great tool that has been made available for business owners!"
-Jackie T. Nashville, TN
"I have been looking for this kind of site for a long time and it's about time we as business owners have something we can use to communicate with one another. If you're a business or contractor, I recommend this to you not just for your benefit but also to help out fellow contractors as well! Consumers have so many places they can rate businesses, but now we have the chance to tell our part too!"
-Craig V. -Sonoma, CA
"Very classy site, it's not like most other forum sites out there. You can tell that it's meant for a great purpose for businesses."

"Love the way it's for all businesses to use because let's face it, all of us deal with these certain customers day in and out."

-Bob H. Denver, CO
"With being a business owner of more than 20 years, it is great to know that there is finally something out there where the businesses can come together and fight back against these customers that you just cannot simply please."
-Chris M. Venice, CA
"I love this site! I have placed a few problem customers on here and turns out I worked out the situation with the customer and I let them know about and asked if we could remove it from the database and they did! It's not like other sites where they say no! it has to stay up here forever, they truly want trust put back between the business and customer!"
-Steve E. Buffalo, NY
