You pay a company to mow your lawn for just one week and then they do unwanted extra services for you and charge you extra money.

If you want green lawn just cut and seed , seeding keeps the weeds away .
Water early in the morning and in the late evening.

My friend just walked out onto the lawn with a shotgun when they were there trespassing trying to apply something. He took his ID, wrote down his home address and said if ANYONE from Weed Man or the Police contact him, he would pay him and his family a visit.

Nobody ever came out again and he never received a bill.
Sometimes you have to deal with these sort of crooks in a method they will understand.

How come the weed man make bill to the customer ?

"It's a sin" - COME ON MAN, that isn't relevant at all, and does not make it illegal! Does that somehow make a difference, ever? If you tell someone it is a sin, do they just suddenly feel remorse and change their mind?

This is also the issue with the credit bureaus, they’re like a puppet with all these companies...they obeyed and listens even to a false information,...when you complain they just ask you to contact the company that you have a dispute! Hmmm!
and leave the consumers suffer and felt helpless!

Cant the people who continue to be scammed get a restraining order against the company then if they go on their property they will get arrested. Or send a cease and desist notorized letter by certified mail.

Never give Weed Man your phone number. Once they have it they will call you a few times a week for years. I got a Groupon with them one year and didn't renew the next year. That's when the constant calling started, wanting me to sign up for services. I tried being nice, being rude, telling them I moved, telling them I don't have a lawn, letting my friends answer the phone and say whatever they wanted, letting my 2 year old answer the phone, etc... The only thing that worked was we ended up cancelling our home phone since only Weed Man and telemarketers called it anyway...

Canadians are so nice. I'd roll up to their office with a glock and my Jamaican accent in full blown effect..... then nicely ask for them to stop.
