BBB Selling Grades?

Does the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Sale their Ratings?

Steve Cox, the President of the Better Business Bureau, claims that the BBB made a plain and simple grading mistake when it comes to certain companies having top-ratings with the BBB. It seems, through ABC News’ research, that nearly 100% of business that are paying members of the BBB receive at least a B or higher rating. Research has also showed that the companies that are non-paying members hold lower grades of C-minus and below.
