Recently, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) issued a warning about a diabetes test strip buy-back scam based in Chicago. Here, we will discuss in details of this issue and provide advice on how to stay safe when selling your unused diabetic supplies.

Details of the BBB Warning

The BBB’s warning pertains to a Chicago-based business that allegedly scams people attempting to sell their unused diabetic test strips. The company, according to the BBB, has been buying back unused diabetes test strips but failing to pay sellers as promised.

Red Flags to Watch Out For

While selling unused diabetic supplies can be beneficial, it’s essential to be vigilant to avoid falling victim to scams. Here are some warning signs to watch out for:

Unfulfilled Promises: If a company fails to fulfill its promises, such as non-payment after receipt of the test strips, it’s a red flag.

Lack of Communication: If the company stops responding to your calls or emails after receiving your test strips, it may be a scam.

Poor or Non-Existent BBB Rating: Always check a company’s BBB rating. A poor or non-existent rating can be a clear warning sign.
