America’s Repair Force was established to expose the deceptive secrets of the service industry to protect consumers from being taken advantage of by unscrupulous companies.
There are many good, ethical service companies all around the country that have become frustrated by competitors who use devious tricks to get their foot in the door of unsuspecting consumers, so they can sell them overpriced services that often times, they don’t even need. Unfortunately for the consumer, the honorable service companies often get to these unsuspecting customers after the damage has been done. America’s Repair Force is trying to help the honorable companies get in front of these companies to protect the American consumer.
Please feel free to share your past experiences on our Customer Experiences page. Please do not use the company name when writing about how a company took advantage of you. It is not our intent to expose companies, but rather to expose tactics, so that consumers will recognize these tactics when they happen to them and not fall prey to them.
Our hope is that by exposing these tactics, they will no longer work on consumers and these unethical companies will have to change the way they operate. This will raise the bar for the entire service industry and hopefully get all companies to compete in a transparent, ethical manner. When this happens, the good companies that offer quality work at a fair price will survive and those who cannot compete in an honest manner will no longer be able to menace our communities.
I have a real talent – I can spot a Rip-off a mile away.
In the world of internet and social media, scams and shady practices are abundant. There are scams that offer prizes and money if they can get your personal info, there are even romance scams where someone pretends they want a romantic relationship, and then cleans out your bank account.
The problem is that the average person can’t always tell the good guys from the bad guys, and some of the worst scams can be perpetrated by a friendly, clean cut, smooth talking salesman who acts like they want to help you and be your best friend. It could be the air conditioning company, the plumber, the electrician, or any other service.
I am proud to be part of America’s Repair Force. I am a champion for the oppressed and a friend to those in need.
This is a warning to any company or individual who preys on the unsuspecting consumer. If you are a predator contractor looking to make a quick easy buck by taking advantage of the elderly I am going to be your worst nightmare. If you are going to try and use high pressure sales tactics on a sweet trusting young housewife – don’t even try to go to sleep. If you are cutting corners, sabotaging equipment, or lying about the work you are doing – I will find you.
My name is A.C, Winterbottom – special agent with America’s Repair Force!
