The Better Business Bureau (BBB) system in the U.S. extends across the nation; coast-to-coast, and in
Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. Since the founding of the first BBB in 1912, the BBB system has proven
that the majority of marketplace problems can be solved fairly through the use of voluntary self-regulation
and consumer education.

Can I report my boss for illegally entering my computer and sending email messages from me as well as forwarding my office phone and cell phone number to his phone number so that he can take any new or existing customers away from me. Farmers Insurance, Cincinnati OH. He has hijacked 3 of my email addresses and controls my Linkedin account and removed 20 of my contacts. Also put an IP address on my work laptop that’s how he controls my Linkedin Account. Linkedin refuses to remove my account.

Farmers Insurance District Office in West Chester, OH posted this site on my behalf. These responses were for another insurance agent that was connected to me on Linkedin. Stalker Troller posted this to make himself look good.
