The world is full of people who try to scam other people out of their hard earned money. Unfortunately, many service-oriented businesses have to deal with the bad reputations of other companies that are really fraudulent and just trying to take people’s money. Recently, a dirty air duct cleaning company in the Midwest was caught trying to scam people with an air duct cleaning scam. The company advertised air duct cleaning for only $54.95 but when the job was supposedly done they would bill customers for fake services that were never agreed to. They even tried to bill one customer $2,700.
Eventually, Missouri authorities shut the company down and would no longer let them operate in the state. However, that didn’t put a stop to the company’s dirty deeds. The company moved to Atlanta and opened up shop there. A TV station in Atlanta set up a sting and sure enough after one homeowner’s ducts were inspected and found to be clean, the dirty duct company showed up and had a different story.
They claimed that the ducts were dirty and that it would cost them $2,400 to clean them properly. Needless to say, the homeowner did not use their service and authorities in Georgia are now investigating the company.
