I am Mike Morris. I was International Credit Manager for a machinery manufacturer for fifteen years ( Standard Modern Technologies) that built lathes, and provided same to foreign militaries, educational institutions, and industry, as well as built and equipped factories around the world. For ten years I was Corporate Credit Manager for Eastern Canada, and Eastern United States for a major glass provider ( TCG International) with annual sales in excess of $130 000 000. Having retired, I decided to join a sales force representing Dun and Bradstreet products, and later Dun and Bradstreet credibility products. I personally owned a Corporate Collection Agency for some years. In my 45 years business experience, I have purchased Dun and Bradstreet products to ensure the credit standing of the companies I have represented, and to minimize their bad debt to an average of one tenth of one percent. Dun and Bradstreet played a significant role in achieving those results. At no time have I intended to make anyone feel like an idiot. The questions I ask are to add accurate information to the file to the benefit of the company I am dealing with. I do not give you a bad credit rating, the rating is provided by Dun and Bradstreet. It is what it is. The program we offer provides an opportunity for you to reveal to Dun and Bradstreet your best credit information. There are costs, effort, and the provision of services which are reflected in the charges assessed under the credit builder program. As Lily says, the information is out there.Your best information will reflect a better credit report.
There are basically two forms of credit operating in the world- your FICO score ( your personal credit), and your commercial credit. Personal is generally handled by Equifax, Experian, or TRW. Dun and Bradstreet is the most recognized provider of commercial credit in the world. Dun and Bradstreet collects data, assembles it in a file, and assigns scores or values to that data. That data relates to the performance of commercial entities. Dun and Bradstreet Credibility Corp, a strategic partner to Dun and Bradstreet, provides a service called Credit Builder. The purpose of the program is to provide a vehicle through which commercial entities can record their best credit information.
Why are you responding to a post from 2012?
This is Mike. The (905) number is a local number that you can use, however, the (855) number is a toll free- which would you prefer using, a long distance charge, or a free number?
I am Mike, i live in Toronto. I knew a girl named Charlene, but she wasn't my sister.
Hey Lily. Just got a call from your Mike Morris. He tried to make me feel like an idiot when I did't answer his questions (number if employees, annual sales). Then proceeded to give me a "bad" rating review and said I can fix this for $700.00. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..... That might work on some unsuspecting rookie.
People, In my opinion, these folks are not your friends. I've been in business for 20 years now and have dealt with many banks and creditors and have an impeccable credit rating along with, and more importantly, an excellent Balance Sheet and Income Statement. Please take my advise and don't get sucked in by the doom and gloom and intimidating nature of this Mr. Morris and friends. This is a pressure sales tactic plain and simple. If you really needed there help, you would be calling them, not them calling you.
To the "Fraud Investigators" you didn't even spell D&B right. Dun has only one N. Guess your not that good in the "investigating" services........
This is one of Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp's outsourcing offices. They really are dealing with companies commercial credit reports. If anyone wonders WHY so many businesses go under, it's because people are not smart enough to investigate things such as their business credit. Would you ignore Equifax if you knew there was negative information on your credit report? It's the same thing. The D-U-N-S number for your business is basically a social security number for your company. You can't opt out of a credit report. Others WILL use it to decide if they are going to work with you or your competitor. A bad credit report can also cost you a lot more than necessary in interest rates, ins premiums, etc.
Knowledge is power people. Get with the program. Like it or not, it's out there. You may as well make sure it is working to your advantage. If you never check it, it could hurt you.
Oh and just an FYI....Go to www.d&b.com and click on small business solutions....you are directed to www.dandb.com because Dun & Bradstreet sold the small business portion of their company a few years ago. These are partnering companies.
