Getting your air ducts cleaned is a good move. It helps you breathe better and clean air ducts also help you save money on your energy bills.
Unfortunately, as with almost any service, there are people who try to take advantage of customers. These people are looking to scam you out of money.
Thankfully, these people aren’t above the law when they get caught. A Colorado Judge sentenced two men and their companies to stop advertising for their air-duct cleaning services in the state of Colorado.
Under the terms of the ruling, these two companies can’t conduct their services either. The judge found them guilty of advertising them on various coupon sites, like Groupon. But the two men and their companies were not planning on honoring their reduced rates.
The judge also ordered the two men to pay nearly $1 million to the state for performing services that were essentially useless and of no value. They were also convicted of charging more than the price they were advertising. You can read the entire article by clicking here.
