Dun and Bradstreet Litigation

            The purpose of this website and forum is to raise discussion and investigate a possible fraud or scam being committed by business credit rating agency, Dun & Bradstreet and/or Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corporation. 

            In this regard, our firm is currently investigating claims that D&B and/or Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corporation falsely report negative credit ratings for businesses in order to generate monthly fees from those same businesses who seek to “repair” their negative credit history through D&B’s website.  The information we have been provided suggests that Dun and Bradstreet may create false vendor information on a business whereby D&B reports that an unidentified vendor has indicated that a business has not timely paid its bills or has outstanding debts.  However, the business has no outstanding debts and all bills have been timely paid, and when the business attempts to identify the alleged vendor who reported a phantom debt or unpaid invoice, D&B refuses to identify the vendor or provide any proof of the alleged debt.  After the business makes an inquiry to D&B regarding the vendor and the negative credit rating, the business is advised that in order to repair their negative credit history, they must sign up with Dun and Bradstreet and pay a monthly or annual fee, generally in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

The incidents we have been privy to include the following:  One day, my firm was contacted by a representative from Dun & Bradstreet who informed us that there has been some negative activity reported against our business.  We were shocked that this could be the case because we had always made timely payments with vendors.  The D&B representative informed us that we could try to correct the negative report by accessing our profile on the D&B database for a fee of $400.00. 

            Despite the shock and confusion, my firm decided to pay the fee.  Despite accessing our profile and searching around, we were unable to find a single vendor who had ever submitted a negative report about us.  I contacted the D&B representative who was not able to provide any rational explanation about the negative report. 

            We have been investigating what individuals are calling a scam by Dun and Bradstreet.  We have reason to believe that D&B fabricated the report in order to make us pay their fee for accessing our profile. 

            In another case, a business reported the following:  Dun & Bradstreet listed that my company was “likely to fail” because one vendor reported a 90-day late payment of $50.00.  After paying the $400.00 fee to access their profile, the company was still unable to locate the allegedly late invoice.  As in the case of my business, the representative from Dun & Bradstreet could not explain why the company was rated “likely to fail.”

            A separate business reported that it was denied a business credit based on a Dun and Bradstreet report.  When that company contacted Dun and Bradstreet, they were informed that they would be given no information unless they signed up to access their Dun & Bradstreet profile for $400.00.  This company even noted that the name of the CEO on their Dun & Bradstreet profile was incorrect and false.  Ultimately, this company went to another lender who agreed that Dun & Bradstreet is not accurate, and not trustable.  The company was approved then approved for a line of credit despite the negative Dun and Bradstreet report. 

            In yet another startling case, one business owner was contacted by Dun & Bradstreet and was informed that his business’ D&B credit rating had dropped.  The Dun & Bradstreet representative informed the business owner that if he paid a $449.00 fee for a self-monitoring service, his credit rating would be restored.  The business owner was shocked because he had been in business for ten years and never paid a bill late, and was given no other options. 

            We have come across similar reports of a business being informed they are “likely to fail” because of a negative report by a mystery vendor that is never found.  Many business owners feel lost and confused because they don’t know how to properly handle the serious charges they face, but my firm can help.
