The Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland is warning consumers against Work Info Center that promises to connect contractors and other workers with commercial and residential job contracts.
The BBB said this “alleged business” charges $100 for referrals, but never delivers any. And though Work Info Center says it is located on Lexington Street in Downtown Baltimore, the BBB says the company doesn’t appear to exist in that location and its phone is disconnected.
The BBB has received nearly 800 inquries about the business, including this one from a contractor:
"Work Info Center called our business stating that they had a lot of work with various banks for foreclosures. They requested a $100 fee for a background check and once we were approved they would start sending me jobs...I have received three emails from them for residential work. I sent emails to the person in charge of these jobs and got mail failure. I have left messages and sent emails with no response."
Efforts to reach Work Info were unsuccessful.
