Crooked Furnace Repairman Sting - SPJ Best Consumer Reporting

The objective of this investigation was to warn our viewers about crooked furnace repairmen looking to make a fast buck. We worked with a veteran HVAC contractor who now teaches his trade at a local college. We set up a hidden camera sting at the home of a widowed senior citizen. What we witnessed was troubling. Some of these guys tried to sell the trusting senior parts and services she didn't need. It showed our viewers, when it comes to hiring contractors, you have to be on guard.

Plumber Causes Major Flood In Apartment

Read the full description below. This is a lesson in why you should never hire cheap labor. Full description: All hiring and decisions were exclusively between the landlord and plumber. The woman with the steam vacuum is the tenant of this low income apartment with her two children. They reported a leaking bathroom sink to their landlord. The landlord, a very problematic, very cheap, Persian female, calls in a self-appointed Hispanic plumber named Wilmer. Wilmer is the kind of cheap labor that cuts corners to try and save money. It should come as no surprise, with these buildings having been built in the 1970's and earlier, that nothing is up to code. This means, in order to shut the water off for this one apartment, the entire building's water would have to be shut down. The apartment complex requires a $150 fee to be paid every 30 minutes the water is turned off. The shut off valves and water heaters are behind locked doors and are only accessible by the complex staff. This is obviously a flawed system compared to the ideal of each apartment having separate shut off valves. The landlord is far too cheap to do anything about it. Wilmer tried to please the cheap landlord by saving her $150 on the bill - you guessed it - by repairing the leak with the water still on. Wilmer, confident in his abilities and armed with his trusty 5 gallon bucket, knows that he will always get her return business if he pulls this off. He gets underneath the sink and unleashes a 90PSI torrent of steaming hot water (don't worry, the minion slippers are fine). All in all, two apartments were ruined, and all affected tenants had to vacate the apartment for extensive repair. This video proved the incompetence of both the landlord and plumber, thus, the landlord was forced to pay all damages to all parties involved. For all the morons who complain that I should have put down the camera and helped this water-logged jackass - I chose not to help for liabilities sake, and instead documented the incident. The landlord tried to pull a fast one and blame the tenants, but the video proved the tenants innocence, and the lying bitch of a landlord was held accountable for the entire situation. Who can deny how funny this video ended up being. Without this video, the tenants would have been screwed over, and you wouldn't be laughing your ass off at this hilarious situation. Quit watching if you think otherwise. Last, I am not a tenant here, as evident by my years worth of YouTube videos, but I am friends with these folks. They may be simple folk, but they are good people. Always document incidents like this, it saved these people and can very well save you from a lawsuit - the same reason many people buy dash cams. In the first 3 months, between Liveleak, WorldStar, and YouTube, this video has pulled in 1.3 million views!
