    Well, I disagree as there are many elements of AARP that do a lot for seniors. But they are so big and unwieldy they frequently don't know what they are doing. For instance, generally they tend to advocate for "liberal" policies that help seniors. So one of the funniest article on AARP is today:
    One might ask the question as to why just before the election they would send this memo out to employees about something that might or might not happen in 2018 regarding plans that wouldn't qualify as taxable anyway. But apparently nobody did ask.:rolleyes:

    This article is mostly FUD and then some advice that should already be known by the target audience of it's organization. Neither company has a $600 ECF but they say that's what people have to pay and then compare it to a cell phone ECF. So they never claim either company has an ECF of $600 but then compare it to a cell phone ECF. How is this any different from what they're trying to "protect" people from.

    The BBB is like a crutch for irresponsible consumers that can't take ownership of their own decisions when it comes to looking at what they sign or reading the fine print. The BBB is all very much opinion as well in alot of cases I would think. Now this isn't to say there aren't legitimate cases of false information and heresay that have occurred, as I'm sure there are. Alot of it would relate to sales in some aspect or another. These individual cases are the exception and not the rule, since most complaints to the BBB do not have a leg to stand on. They are simply results of the consumers inability to make responsible choices and be accountable for their own actions.

    I used the BBB in Oklahoma to arbitrate a lemon law dispute. That's one of the services they offer which I found extremely valuable and saved me quite a bit of money.
