This Sunday at 7pm/6pm CT on Chris Hansen’s “The Hansen Files,” Dateline and the BBB uncover a nationwide air duct cleaning scam that targets coupon-cutting consumers, especially those senior citizens on a fixed income.
Though the Better Business Bureau has been investigating this suspect company for years, with the help of Chris Hansen’s hidden cameras, the two entities uncover this shameless con – that has been alive and well in your communities for over a decade – in a matter of weeks. The company uses the tried-and-true ploy of advertising one price and charging as much as eight times that once the service is complete.
