WARNING: Don’t do business with BBE Sound

This is a warning for everyone who is doing business, or is thinking about doing business with BBE Sound.

Several months ago Dan Brown of BBE Sound booked an ad here on ProTooler Blog but the payment never came. Thinking this must be some kind of mistake I emailed them with reminders and asked if there was a problem without ever getting a reply back. While it’s unlikely it never reached them, I realized it could be the case, so I emailed three different addresses at BBE. Still no reply. For the record, we’re not even talking large sums of money here, and for me it’s got down to the principle rather than the greens.

If you’re doing business with BBE Sound, or is thinking about it, I urge you to get out of it quickly because obviously they can’t be trusted.

To you, dear reader, feel free to spread the word. If not for me (and I would be very grateful), consider doing it for the poor blokes who might get scammed the same way I did.

    That’s a shame. I know I should always make sure I get paid before I provide services to people I don’t really know, but I’m a poor businessman.

    Yeah. It’s a shame it has to be that way too. I mean, I rather trust people to commit when a deal has been made.

    this can be a sign of a company in trouble!!

    I suspect that 2009 is going to claim more than just our “high street” retailers… some audio companies are more than likely to suffer badly and possibly go under. not paying the bills is the first sign of a company facing serious financial trouble and the possibility of bankruptcy.

    Good luck getting the cash – is it possible to sue them?
