Matthew Winfrey
Customer Check
I am the Co-Founder and CEO of Customer Check LLC.  We own and operate which is a unique website that allows business owners to anonymously share their experiences dealing with customers.  Just as our customers can search for online reviews to make informed decisions, allows our members to make informed decisions based on submitted reviews by other local vendors. I have had a passion for helping small business owners avoid losing money or their reputation because they had a negative customer experience. On a personal note - I enjoy mountain bike riding, golf, bass guitar, and I believe most great movies were created in the 80's and 90's. If you are a business owner who wants to take the guesswork out of selecting new customers, join the network at and start avoiding negative customer experiences.
