Before handing over personal information to a concierge service, research the company online and ask friends and family for recommendations. A legitimate company will have a screening process in place and provide training for employees. Since some companies provide bill paying and financial management services, check with the Better Business Bureau for ratings, reviews, and complaints before hiring.
