WARNING to Bedbuggers: be slightly critical of rave reviews!(1 post)
We have lots of PCOs (exterminators), bed bug dog professionals, and even some product providers who read and participate in the Forums. Most of these folks are top notch, fabulous participants, and I am glad of their presence here. I hope it continues.
However, I want to warn folks who are new to Bedbugger that we have recently had some incidents of:
*PCOs (exterminators) fraudulously pretending to be "satisfied customers" and posting rave reviews of what is actually their company or one they're affiliated with. This has happened both on the forums/comments and also in private messages. This is highly unethical, since it might mislead people into choosing a provider.
*PCOs approaching forum users via Private Message (PM) to offer their services. While this is less odious, you should still be wary of using someone just because you see an ad for them, or because they message you. Ask others -- who you KNOW to be bed bug sufferers -- for their advice.
While some of these companies may be good ones, and some of the resulting work has doubtless been very good, I want readers to be aware of these concerns.
A separate WARNING posted below this notifies bed bug professionals that they are not permitted to misrepresent themselves or to troll for customers.
