FENCE SCAMS PONZI SCHEME #1
FENCE SCAMS – INFAMOUS PONZI SCHEME!
BERNIE MADOFF DID IT BIG TIME, OUR LOCAL “BUSINESSMAN” WAS PEANUTS BUT STILL MANAGED TO SCAM VENDORS AND HOMEOWNERS FOR OVER $100K!
I saw this one myself about 10 years ago as several homeowners contacted me for assistance after they had been scammed by a local fence installer turned businessman! It started out innocent enough, he had great intentions to do wonderful work. His just knew his boss was getting rich, he saw all the jobs under construction, all the money rolling in, but he was only getting paid labor rates and doing all the […]
FENCE SCAMS SPECIAL FINANCING #2
FENCE SCAMS … SPECIAL IN-HOUSE FINANCING!
This was a HUGE SCAM used by home improvement siding salesmen back in the day, and we see the older scams making a comeback. In this scam, the customer, usually older retired couple, are contacted about a home improvement product…fencing, windows, roofing, siding, guttering. After several hours of high pressure sales tactics and the offer of in house financing with low monthly payments, these slime balls coerce the homeowner to what seems like a good deal. When in reality the product is usually 3 to 4 times the normal price and the financing package puts […]

FENCE SCAMS – WE ARE WORKING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND HAVE ENOUGH LEFTOVER MATERIALS TO MAKE YOU A GREAT DEAL! This scam usually targets senior citizens, but will catch trusting homeowners of all groups. Salesman walking through the neighborhood knocking on doors looking for work. He offers you a great deal, because … but you need to sign up today, right now!
About 15 years ago we actually helped out a homeowner who was scammed by a shyster using a variation of our company name with the intention of scamming some easy money from a homeowner. A very […]
FENCE SCAMS INSURANCE THEY DON’T HAVE #4
FENCE SCAMS – CLAIMING INSURANCE COVERAGE THEY DON’T HAVE! Now this sounds a little goofy! Why would someone tell you that they have insurance when they don’t have coverage? $$$ is the reason!
What if the contractor shows you a COPY of his Workers Comp Policy? Another SCAM! THE INSURANCE COMPANY WILL MAIL OR FAX YOU A CURRENT COPY OF POLICY!
What happens if someone gets hurt on the job working at your home? What if they got hurt on the weekend and come to work at your house on Monday and hurt their back!
When the contractor quits on […]
FENCE SCAMS ONLY FROM US #6
FENCE SCAMS – YOU CAN ONLY GET THIS SPECIAL FENCE FROM US! LOL.
It was developed by NASA, has a tax credit, only available through this contractor!
WOW, what a SCAM! With today’s technology most companies can get most products delivered in 2 weeks or less.
A salesman that has the ONLY fence like this around is LYING TO YOU or pitching you a product that other companies either do not understand or have rejected for good reasons.
Quality products are available to all legitimate contractors across the board.
GET IT SPECIFIED IN WRITING, take a few days to think about it, do your research […]
FENCE SCAMS TODAY ONLY SPECIAL PRICING #7
FENCE SCAMS – TODAY ONLY! SPECIAL PRICING!
A legitimate sale doesn’t only last while the salesman is in your home.
If its a good deal today, then it will be a good deal tomorrow!
The high pressure high priced salesman knows if he doesn’t close while he is there you will find a cheaper, better quality contractor! He must close right then and there! LOL, I use to have sales people pitch me at home like this, only to give them a call the next day and be offered the same exact deal!!!!
Wow that is really exclusive, and I am super special! Unprofessional sales people (SCAMMERS) will keep calling you every day or so and reduce the price (see #9 above BAIT and SWITCH)!
YOU SHOULD BE OFFENDED! At best, that simply means they were trying to take you for a ride in the beginning, and at worst once you pay them you will never see the work done or your money. Unscrupulous sales tactics like this reflects directly on the quality of the company.
FENCE SCAMS CASH UP FRONT #8
FENCE SCAMS – I NEED CASH UP FRONT! Never pay the entire amount up front!
Contractors do incur expenses and a reasonable deposit of 1/3 is acceptable with the balance paid AFTER the work is completed. If the work is finished at the end of the day, check it over the next day in the daylight so you are satisfied before making final payment.
Be careful of contractors that contact you, they just happen to be working in the area, or that have a name that sounds a lot like a well known established contractor. They may be using name recognition to scam you! Do your homework and check for an established legitimate local fence contractor.
FENCE SCAMS BAIT AND SWITCH #9
FENCE SCAMS – BAIT
AND SWITCH MATERIALS… CEDAR FOR THE PRICE OF PINE This is a complaint we commonly hear, homeowners have the impression after signing a contract for a beautiful cedar fence they will receive a top #1 grade all cedar fence and expect it to last 15
to 20 years like a REAL OLD GROWTH WESTERN RED CEDAR.
r Pyle would say, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE! The contract merely states “cedar fencing” leaving the door wide open for contractor interpretation and manipulation! Most homeowners do not know that there are:
MULTIPLE TYPES OF CEDAR: WHITE / YELLOW / RED / and CHINESE CEDAR that have no connection to REAL WESTERN RED CEDAR;
MULTIPLE GRADES OF CEDAR ( #1, #2 and BETTER, #2, and the cheapest lowest grade #3 lots of knots like a speckled pup )
E THICKNESSES of CEDAR and SPRUCE and FIR (these three lumbers are easily confused with different price points) to choose from and commonly substituted to achieve a lower price point! Cost for the materials range from EXPENSIVE (WESTERN RED CEDAR) to extremely low end (Northern White Cedar #3 pickets, spruce rails, and swamp cypress posts).
The bait and switch is accomplished by not specifying which cedar, spruce, cypress, not specifying which cedar grade or thickness of cedar.
Fence Contractor cutting costs by:
switching backing rails (2×4’s for 1×4’s) to reduce costs
switching cedar backing rails for cheaper spruce backing rails to cut costs,
substituting #1 clear cedar pickets with #3 cedar pickets with lots lots of knots and bark which cuts costs,
substituting cedar wood 3/4″ pickets with cypress wood 3/8″ pickets,
increasing spacing between pickets to save costs, using 1/4″ thick cedar pickets instead of 9/16″ or 3/4″ cedar picket to cut costs,
mixing concrete from “scratch” instead of using the consistent quality of premixed concrete.
Another is wild exaggerated product claims,
CEDAR LASTS FOR GENERATIONS false-about 6 yrs;
CEDAR WILL NOT WARP false – all wood warps outside;
CLAIMING WARRANTY: for anything the homeowner asks for! Be sure this is documented on your contract and not just verbal.
