Narc That Car’s ‘F’ Rating From Better Business Bureau Unchanged; BBB Says It Asked For ‘Comprehensive’ Client List To Determine If ‘Bona Fide Product With A True Market Value’ Exists

Narc That Car (NTC) told the Better Business Bureau in Dallas that it would take a “few weeks” to respond to the BBB’s request to provide the organization a “comprehensive list of third-party clients,” the BBB said today on its website.

The information was requested from NTC March 3 in an effort “to determine if the company is selling a bona fide product with a true market value,” the BBB reported.

The BBB opened an inquiry into NTC Jan. 18 to determine whether NTC was “functioning as a pyramid promotional scheme.” BBB lowered NTC’s rating to “F” — the worst possible score on the BBB’s 14-step rating scale — earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the BB said it also asked NTC Jan. 18 to “substantiate some claims made in its advertising.”

Two months later, the advertising inquiry remains open, the BBB noted.

Some NTC affiliates said last week that NTC was changing its name to Crowd Sourcing International — or CSI for short. The name-change announcement was made a week after the BBB issued the “F.”

  1. The BBB will be lucky if they ever hear from NARC again. I doubt that they will ever receive the information they requested. Narc will be long gone or as stated they will call themselves something else and if another inquiry is launched concern that name they will again change it to something else etc…

  2. We should keep an eye out for a separate BBB file on Crowd Sourcing International. It isn’t all that uncommon for companies to change names and instead of the BBB adding the new name to the established report, they open a new one, sometimes with different grades. Even with addresses, phone numbers or ownership in common the BBB sometimes doesn’t make the connection. In the unlikely event that NTC’s name change lets then “slip through the cracks” some kind soul should help the BBB connect the dots.

    Call it our own small effort to “crowd source” the BBB data base.

  5. Did it happen to contain a verifiable outside revenue source mentioned in it? If not, then it was useless.

  6. After speaking with loads of affiliates on a conference call and live, I asked whether they are satisfied with the company and, whether the company has fulfilled its promises to them. Each said “Absolutely.” I’m not sure whether the BBB will find the company credible eventually, but the affiliates of NARC aka Crowd Sourcing International had nothing negative to say. They not only make money from recruiting others, but also from selling the database service to insurance agencies, law enforcement and repo companies (it is their car after all). Just yesterday while watching the news when they posted a license plate for a wanted felon. Who knows, if they had this service, maybe it would lead to that car being found. It certainly sounds like a better system (unless you’re the criminal :).

    The BBB is skeptical of MLM companies as a whole — most people are. But other than slander from their competitor (DNA), I could find nothing to justify an “F” rating. Hopefully, this will be resolved and people can continue making money (yes, they are making money) and focus on real issues — like War and Hunger.
