I am a former business owner. I owned a home base catering business, and in doing so I had (because it expired) a tax ID and a Dunns number. Browsing the internet today I stumble upon the D&B website. I contacted them to find out about my old information and to see if my old number was still viable. It's not.
Upon speaking to the rep. I was told that I could apply for a dunns number for $400 annually and automatically recieve a score of 80. The rep stated unlike a SSN, business credit starts out great until you mess it up. And with that number and score I should be able to get business credit.
I really wanted know if any one has heard this or is there a catch I am not aware of?
Thank you and God bless.
