SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Better Business Bureau of Southwest Missouri thinks a company in Springfield changed its name to try to avoid a low BBB rating.  Its investigation shows the president also plays a role in several other similar  companies, some with as many as 28 complaints.  Each time he opens a company under a  new name, the BBB rating is wiped clean, giving consumers the impression the business has a good BBB rating. MTEK is a computer/printer supplies telemarketing company that had an A+ rating with the BBB, primarily because the company received no complaints.   The BBB's investigation revealed MTEK is listed as the owner of at least two other companies, High Performance Laser Works and MicroTek Solutions, also computer/printer supplies telemarketing companies.  BBB has received 28 complaints against High Performance Laser Works in the last three years.
