      I too am sorry for your loss and that you are having

      to deal with this crap on top of losing your husband.

      If I were you I would call your local news stations

      and have them do a story on it. They are able to put

      a stop to it better than the BBB sometimes. Reporting

      it to the BBB won’t do much unless people actually

      look up the business before using it. Well obviously

      they are contacting people so those people wouldn’t

      even find out that they were turned into the BBB

      before they are scammed as well. I am not saying to

      NOT report it, because you should. But sometimes you

      will find out that a company has 100s of complaints


      Anyway, please don’t let them get away with this. The

      reason they have been able to do it in the past is

      because people give up and just pay them or not report

      them because its easier.
