Description

After complaints kept coming into our newsroom about underhanded tactics by an air duct cleaning company, News 4 decided to check out the company. Victims told News 4, the men who came to their homes for an advertised $55 coupon cleaning used scare tactics to get senior citizens to pay hundreds if not thousands of dollars extra. So we set up an undercover bait house to catch them in the act.
