WARNING Green Business Call Ceters
March 23, 2011

The Institute for Green Business Certification, Inc. (IGBC) has nothing to do with any Call Center calling from a Pennsylvania telephone number: 215.475.5457. This Call Center has a number of complains about their harassing techniques while they claim to be taking a survey for Green Business Certification. They are, apparently, "Phishing" for account numbers.

Please be careful of giving any personal or business information to any phone solicitors that you are not familiar with.

We state again, the Call Center in question or any call centers doing "Green Survey" are not associated with the Institute for Green Business Certification, Inc., or any of our divisions. We are not sure if they have any association with any Green Business Certification company that we know about!
