I just saw a story about a local lady who scammed a few people out of their life savings, however I feel exhausted for those people because they lost everything they had all because a stranger on the iPhone was able to convince them to send them money for a unique reason.
- I am not sure if these scammers have a conscience because how could anyone take the luck of other people like that.
I guess this sort of thing happens every day, and sometimes when both of us least expect it, for instance, I was with my mom a few weeks ago, and she had an issue with her central air, and wanted to get a business to inspect and maintain the unit! She went online and found an ad for a local heating and air conditioning business. They were offering free estimates, a low hourly rate, and $150 for cleaning the ductwork. I found that ad too wonderful to be true because I paid upwards of $350 for ductwork cleaning a few years ago. Therefore, I decided to do some research to make sure that the business was reputable, and I was shocked at what I found, then most of the reviews called the business heating and air conditioning scammers, and the customers were unhappy because they were hit with hidden charges and expensive parts. I showed my mom the reviews and warned her to be careful because there are a lot of heating and air conditioning companies out there who are not very reputable; I guess perhaps, if I wasn’t around my mom could have gotten scammed by this heating and air conditioning business, so I am cheerful I was able to find another local business that was reputable and had good online reviews.
