The Better Business Bureau (BBB) system in the U.S. extends across the nation; coast-to-coast, and in

that the majority of marketplace problems can be solved fairly through the use of voluntary self-regulation
and consumer education.

Our Livonia detective submitted our complaint to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office. I think this was done in the beginning of March 2015. It has been a few months. I am wondering how long will it take for us to know that the prosecutor accepted our complaint and will prosecute the con artist that swindled our dear mother who has now passed away. I have written, emailed, and left a voice message to the wayne County prosecutor office. No news yet! If you can help me know what more I can and should do, please help. Thank you. Love, Peace, Truth, Justice prevails. Kristy
