“I counsel people all the time — never believe anyone who says they’re awesome, believe other people who say they’re awesome. That’s why I recommend checking online reviews from independent sites, the Better Business Bureau and media coverage from reputable outlets. I even suggest checking to see if they partner with any major charities. None of this guarantees you’re dealing with ethical professionals, but it does massively improve your odds.”
