Dirty Deed! Fake Maid Service Cleans Out Elderly

  Alice DeMade  |    15 February 2010  |    Choosing a maid service

“Mister Maid Cleaning Service” guaranteed it could rid your home of dirt and grime. It also cleaned up on people’s jewelry and valuables, Broward Sheriff’s Office officials said Friday. Read the rest of Todd Wrights NBC Miami article on how some con men can pretend to run a maid service to exploit the elderly.

These are scary times, and people need to be weary of who they invite into their home. In this case a quick search of Mister Maid Cleaning Service in Miami would have revealed that they have no website. This is the first red flag. Next flag is they are not listed in the Yellow Pages. Third red flag is they are not listed by the Better Business Bureau.

I bet you dollars to donuts that Mister Maid Cleaning Service offered a lower rate than Molly Maid, Merry Maid and You've Got MAIDS. Unfortunately for their victims, Mister Maid Cleaning Service was really too good to be true.
