MIAMI VALLEY, Ohio (WDTN) – The Better Business Bureau named the top eight area businesses with ‘F’ ratings and the most complaints during the first half of 2015.

The following businesses are listed in the order of the highest number of complaints through June 30th. All of these companies have F ratings with the Dayton BBB:

“These companies alone represent 196 complaints to your BBB over the past three years. Sixty-eight of these complaints were unanswered or unresolved by the company. In fact, 48 of them were closed as unanswered or unresolved during the first half of 2015,” said John North, Dayton BBB president.

“Many times these people are committing crimes, they take the cash up front and they never come back. They take the cash and never finish the job” said Sheriff Gene Kelly, Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
