Appliance Service: How To Avoid Frauds
The internet has made it convenient for people to advertise their products and service. It is also usually the first stop for many people who want information about certain products and services. It is no wonder then that the internet has also attracted many dishonest “businesses” seeking to rip off or scam well meaning customers.
If you are looking for an appliance service center to fix broken home appliances it is alright to find companies on the internet. But it is also good to be wary since these people will be coming into our homes to fix our appliances.
Before you hire the first company you see on the internet it is good to check out the physical address listed on their website. Companies that only have a PO Box or is run in a home sounds less legitimate compared to a business that is housed in proper premises.
It is also best to avoid companies that do not provide customer references especially if you specifically requested one. They might not be able to provide this because they have less than satisfactory reviews or worse because they lack experience to be able to do so.
Contractors that ask you to write a check to a person or a company also sounds fraudulent. The same is true for those who only take cash. It is better to be wary than to be dragged into dangerous financial transactions with these kinds of characters.
Agencies such as the BBB or Better Business Bureau can give you ratings of various appliance service centers in your area if they are a member. The BBB is a third party non-profit moderator that can provide you with various information regarding a business which will make it easier for you to vet out frauds and other appliance service scammers in your area.
