This is a tough subject, almost daily on social media folks are posting about being ripped off by all types of service providers. I had a great handyman helping me with projects for myself and clients, did a great job, I referred him to a client and just disappeared after being paid, another time I had a couple doing some painting for a client, gone! The other day I had a palm tree that needs to come down, probably 40’ high my regular landscaping guy said $350 to remove, the same day on FB a lady asked if $500 to trim a palm tree was too much, yea! I personally have fired three lawn guys which I paid by the month and never showed up.
The Villages is a senior citizen community and there are many people out there waiting to take advantage of people, I see it on the local Villages News website. NEVER paid for services in advance, make sure they are licensed and insured and the people ringing your doorbell offering services just don’t do it!
We do have Seniors against Crime here in The Villages, they have four offices in The Villages, that should tell you something. Sadly, it is a way of life here and please be careful who you hire, I help a lot of people and try to know who to suggest and trust and I have been burned a few times!
