Does anyone know a way to report a company claiming to be a "Microsoft Certified Partner" when they aren't?

Or a way to truly check if they are or not?

What kind of partner are they claiming to be? The Microsoft Partner Program is available to just about everyone and it doesn't take much (at all) to become a Registered Member of the Microsoft Partner Program.

I am fairly sure they are not what they are claiming to be (they have little to no software development or technical experience). Is there a list of registered members on a site somewhere that I can look up? I can't find them on here: – jonathanpeppers Jan 4 '11 at 13:06
What is it exactly that they're claiming to be? – joeqwerty Jan 4 '11 at 22:01
