These guys are going about this ALL wrong! Get your own business license. Call Weedman and tell them about your free quotes. Go to their place of business, throw down some fertilizer, leave a bill. It's that simple. When Weedman doesn't pay up, send the bill to collections. Ruin them. Play their own games.

This company is crooked & I hope a lot of Canadians watched it so they can boycott this good for nothing company.They are ruining peoples credit all in the name of $$$.I don't see why people are not suing these criminals.Good word of mouth & media will hopefully ruin them as they have many good Canadians.

This reminds me of Bally's Fitness (health club) in the U.S. I signed up with them and then I moved to a city that didn't have Bally's. But they still wanted money. Their contract said I had to be living at least 75 miles from a Bally's to cancel. Really? 75 miles! Like I would drive that far to use their facilities. But I was actually over 800 miles from the closest Bally's. They would not cancel my membership. They ruined my credit and there was nothing I could do about it.

This is why you never sign contracts for companies like these. In America we call this trespassing and after so many times you will get shot for continuing to come onto my property without my permission.

If "marijuana" is a gateway to heavy drugs, then this business model is a gateway to felony crimes.

Dear Mr. Weedman, if you step onto my property, I cannot guarantee you your safety. Just letting you know in advance.

I'd just steal everything out of their truck while they're working in the back yard. They'd come back one once, max.

All you need is about 20 guys in suits and one to do the talking have them each stand with a employee and one talk to the PIC. Make it clear that if the scam keeps up you will be back and they will not like it cause bodily harm does wonders when you want to get your point across.

If it appears on your credit reports, all you have to do is refute it, There's no proof, no signatures. I've removed these type of things from my credit report. Weed man still wouldn't get paid. Its removed.
