Gordon, that is my major complaint: BizBuySell does not seem to be doing anything aggressively, or even marginally in an effort to edit the bulletin board. Despite with their representative said in the post just before yours, I doubt their efforts. I had contacted them for months now, complaining about their lack of responsiveness, and even when I write to them directly through their support center, I get no answers to my correspondence. Thanks for your comment. If more people were to complain, perhaps they would learn that this is a real problem.  

If you were looking to buy, start or sell a business I write a blog for each purpose that is free and with no obligation. If you have an interest, contact me at   Again, no obligation, no cost, no salesman will call at your door!

Mr. Lugard's post (below) would seem to be a perfect example of the kind of spam I am talking about. He apparently did not even read my post, but placed his own "advertisement" for his loan opportunities, which may well be bogus - who can tell - in reply to my warning. To me, BizBuySell is complicit in any negative results, such as identity theft, because of their obvious neglect in attending to this site. It has been perhaps months this this kind of garbage has been screened from the Community bulletin board.

Mr. Barrick, I completely agree. It seems recently there has been an influx of fake loan offers in this section. I have been contacted by a few people from here responding to a business listing of mine although with another agenda.
This site could be used as such a great networking tool without the useless spam. Hopefully Bizbuysell could begin to screen users better to eradicate the nonsense. I would suggest (anyone reading this) you do your research on anyone/group/business with which you intend to do business. They need to show professionalism and have accountability for their provided services.
A great place to start researching the reputability of a company (concerning loans) is the NMLS. Here’s a couple links for you to look into if interested.
