How can I find information about a specific company?

Researching companies

If you need to find out about a specific company (ie: is it a legitimate operation or if they´ve had many complaints filed against them, I suggest that you contact your local Better Business Bureau. The BBB can be found online at http://www.betterbusinessbureau.com/ and you may also want to check the local state BBB site which you should be able to link from the main site. Be aware that the BBB may only have records of problems that individuals have filed. Just because there are no "bad" reports on a company does not necessarily mean it is in the clear. Also, the company name you have referenced may be a DBA (which is not necessarily the actual "business name" on file.
