My thanks to the local BBB. I discovered a contractor we had used was a registered sex offender. I checked the company's BBB page and the owner wasn't using his full legal name. It is obvious why. He is a registered level II sex offender who targeted a child, has to verify with the police annually and will be on the registry for life. The great folks at the BBB changed the listing to reflect his full name, so now anyone who considers doing business with him can Google search him. The first page of Google is covered in results showing his mugshot and sex offender status. Kudos to the BBB for checking this out and correcting that listing for me!
I would have never used this contractor had I known about his criminal history.
