PLEASE PLEASE SPEND ONE MINUTE TO READ THIS!!!
I also have the same problem with this WeedMan company, It started on this Febuary when my parents received a bill of $144 dollars from WeedMan, the letter says a fertilizing service has been done on my grass. but the bill is on my sister's name who had been moved out 3 years ago. I thought this company must make a mistake or anything. so I discarded the bill and threw it away.
But just right after a month I received another bill for $80 dollars it says a pesticide service had been done to my grass. since nobody in this house have ordered any landscaping service from any company, not my parents for sure because they don't speak any english at all. beside I have a very small size lawn (about 120 square feet) we always take care of it ourself, sometime I even helped my neighbor to cut his grass when he came back to his country for visiting.
I decided to call WeeMan and explaint to them we have never authorized any of service from WeedMan, but they admitted they did do a free lawn service for advertisement, because we did't responsed to their free service, they assumed we needed their serviced again, so they started do more serviced to our lawn with an "automaticaly authorization and billed us.
I was very angry. I told them I never call for any service, and I won't give a damn about the bills. and she said she will talk to the manager and see what he says and will call me back tomorrow. but she never called back.
I thought WeedMan had awared they made mistakes, and this matter is over, but I was wrong. regardless I did't pay the first 2 bills WeedMan keep sending bills to my house in the next six months and said they have serviced our lawn for another 4 times that none of my family witnessed any of the WeedMan guys worked on the lawn (maybe we were at worked when they showed up at my house). now the bill come to a new total of $477 dollars!!! and WeedMan started to call the house for the late payments
Finally, I decided to pay a visit to the Company I talked to one of the employee who worked in the account receivable. I explainted to her that my familly never called for any service from them, and asked her for a copy of the work order or any contracts that any ot my family member had signed, but she couldn't provide me any of that . and she just answer me briefly that it is too late, they have done services and I have to pay the bills. And they will get the loan collection company after us, will make us to pay the bills. WHAT KIND OF THE COMPANY IS THAT!!! ARE WE IN CANADA?????
Since that day WeedMan had called that house frequently and threated to get the loan collection company after us. I Mom was too scared and cried, in her mind, the loan companies are bad companies which operated by gang, who will bring weapon to your door and threat you to pay them. maybe she watched too much TV.
Regardless what my Mom thinks, I realized this is serious matter, THIS IS A SCAM, AND AN EXTORTION isn't it. I took my Mom to the City Hall, and even I brought her to the Police Station to seek helps, but they were so helpless, just adviced us to get a lawyer.
This matter is still not solved, I am urging anyone here who is also been throught the same problem and still a victim of the WeedMan scam, please please contact me([email protected]), My name is Arron give me some advices or maybe we can worked together to bring ourself justice.
Thank You Very Much
