Master Rooter/RRrooter/Reliable Rooter Bait and Switch prices changed Gainesville Georgia
Web site advertised $150 Septic tank pumping. I called to verify and schedule service. Routine advertised price on the internet hovered around $200. I had telphone estimates as high as $500. Most local businesses I called estimated about $300.
Two young men arrived in a RRseptic pump truck with backhoe on the trailer. They removed tank inspection cover, suggestted alternative repairs. I advised them i just wanted them to pump out the tank. The younger man started to write the bill, and stated $179 for the pumping and $200 for the overfill charge. I told him that this was not my agreement with the voice on the phone, identified as Al. I told him I only had $300 to spend and I had no way for paying him more. He then stated he would pump it for $330. I told him I would have to call Al first, because this is not the original advertised price.
I called Al, the pump crew left and Al called back. Al stated that we could not do business together. I concurr.
I called a local man in Lula GA, Jay Smith, who readily agreed to pump out the system for the money that I had.
Overall, this was a bait and switch fraud, which was not perpetrated, therefore I have no cause for legal action.
I was under the impresion that septic tank pumping was a legitamate business service, and routine every five years.
I now find out that it is just another fraudulent scam. Caveat Emptor.
