If you are in the UK and a business is not listed in the Company House directory, how do you find out if they are legit or not?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21735 points ) October 25th, 2012

The title pretty much says it all. If the UK doesn’t have an equivalent of the BBB or Consumer Affairs, who looks out for the consumer to warn them of bogus businesses or those with a lot of complaints and poor performance dispensing goods or services?
