I called ARS Rescu Rooter in Denver, Colorado for service of my furnace. From the start: I asked the operator how much was a service call?
She placed me on hold, came back to the line, and informed me that the manager was extending their special of $79.99 to me. I agreed and the tech came out looked at the furnace, stated that it was old, rubbed some soot off the furnace and told me that I needed a new one and that they had financing available -all within 2 minutes!. I then told him to put the furnace together and leave immediately!
(I've heard that exact line before from the $79.99 Just Brakes people). It was a total scam from the first phone callto the tech service!
