HGRB Services is Increasing National Cadre
4/8/2011 9:54:28 AM
"Team Work National" [an entity of HGRB Services]maximizes emphasis on recruitment of volunteer staff members/associates representing all 50 states. These associates include writers, advisers, recruiters, and other network builders.
There's no doubt that, all year round, homeowners and homerenters across America are victimized by some contractors or people under the guise of residential contractors.
One of the goals of "Team Work National," is to extend our line up of associates in all 50 states .... not just in eight. This is a national network where people from every state are exposed to the helpful homes services tips we offer.
But, it's sort of grievous when you've got someone in Louisiana, having issues specific to his/her state, but no one there to guide this person [if even via e-mail] to effective remedial and preventative action.
Each state has it's own special mix of affairs. Its people more readily identify with its own. There's a special bond. In a disaster, when people need to re-build, if given the choice, they'd prefer someone representative of their state.
Still, there are far too few of us in this realm of information and advocacy for our homeowners and homerenters.
There is a case where a bullying residential contractor extorted money from one of our senior citizen private home dwellers [a widow] to the tune of of $82,000.00 (New York).
Then, yet another case where a contracting firm ripped off a number of homeowners through not doing any of the work promised, to the cumulative sour note of $124,000 (Georgia).
Think that's something, how about this? There was a contracting firm which ripped off an untold number of people (2009-2010), never beginning or completing any work, inevitably filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy to avoid paying any of the money back, fines, and prison.
Guess what it's rip off take was? Oh ... not that much ... only about 50 million dollars! The contracting firm was American Shingle, and the states reportedly affected are:
Alabama Florida North Carolina
Arkansas Georgia South Carolina
Colorado Missouri Tennessee
But, that's only "one" in perhaps thousands [or more]running wild in every state.... from state to state.
This is far too overwhelming to stop. This is especially so when we've got so many people so transfixed by all the home improvement shows and home tips, that they just don't seem to give any serious consideration to the need to be more educated against contractor scam and rip off.
But, we know, in spite of it all, we can still make a difference in helping to reduce the number of victimizations. The more the better ... and, you can make a difference, even if in the lives of one family of private home dwellers.
So, if you really have the compassion for helping our private home dwellers avoid these type situations, what's stopping you? If so, then we need your help. We need more people to participate in our network. You don't even have to leave your home. You can do it online
Have something to write? Have you any advice that's useful to the mission of this network through Team Work National?
Your input is needed, especially from where you are. Will you join us in this crusade?
