Oregon AG files lawsuit, claims air duct cleaning companies mailed deceptive ads

A lawsuit claims the Vancouver-based operation mailed 20 million print ads and made over 11 million unwanted robocalls to Oregon residents

 

PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon’s Attorney General filed a lawsuit against an air duct cleaning operation for allegedly mailing deceptive advertisements and making illegal robocalls.

“These calls and mailers were incredibly deceptive—not to mention obnoxious,” said Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum.

The lawsuit claimed U.S. Air Ducts, its owners and their associated companies violated Oregon’s Unlawful Trade Practices Act by promising customers a “seasonal special” in print advertisements. Once in the home, technicians would use high pressure sales tactics to get consumers to spend hundreds of dollars for a complete cleaning, a fake VIP membership and services the company couldn’t perform, according to the complaint filed in Multnomah county.

Technician Checks Out Picture of Scantily Clad Woman While He Was Supposed to Be Cleaning Air Ducts

Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero and the Inside Edition I-Squad put air duct service people to the test in the fourth installment in a special series of investigations.

Inside Edition rented a house in Montclair, New Jersey, for an entire month, tricking it out with more than a dozen hidden cameras and then calling in the fix-it guys to see what would happen.

For the fourth installment, we enlisted air duct-cleaning experts from the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, Mark Zarzeczny and Anthony Paterno, who have a combined 50 years of experience, to fully inspect the home’s air ducts.

“Basically, you just need a basic air duct cleaning,” Zarzeczny told Guerrero.
With hidden cameras everywhere, the house is rigged to see every move anyone inside can make. All of the live footage is transmitted to a remote command post on the first floor.

Guerrero made appointments with companies offering great deals on air duct cleaning. Would they provide a good service or charge us for things we didn’t need?

One man worked for a company offering an $88 special. He entered the home, lugged a big vacuum inside and started cleaning.

“He’s not going the full length of the ducts,” Guerrero noticed from the command post as she watched the footage.

“Exactly, he’s working hard, but it’s very substandard work,” Zarzeczny agreed.

For $50 more, he said he’d clean the big ducts in the attic. He brought up the vacuum but Inside Edition’s hidden cameras showed he never cleaned any of them.

“He charged you extra for the main trunk lines,” Zarzeczny told Guerrero.

“Which he didn’t do,” she replied.

Instead of cleaning the ducts, the cameras caught him looking at a provocative picture of a woman on his cellphone.

Guerrero then revealed her true identity to the man.

“I’m Lisa Guerrero with Inside Edition, did you do a thorough job today?” she asked the technician.

Customers left with $1000+ bills after responding to air duct cleaning ad

Several customers complain they ended up with a bill of more than $1,000 after responding to an advertisement promising air duct cleaning for $39 and furnace service for $99.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Several customers complained they ended up with a bill of more than $1,000 after responding to an advertisement promising air duct cleaning for $39 and furnace service for $99.

“I think they saw an old woman with glasses and a cane and think: ‘Oh boy, a sitting duck,’” explained Sharon Berg of Mulino

Berg said workers from US Air Ducts & Builders left her with a bill for $1,250 after an hour-long service call in late November. She had planned on paying far less for the promotional offer.

“I think they should have warned me and given me some type of an estimate. I would have said, ‘There’s the door,’ because I couldn’t afford that,” said Berg.

The Vancouver-based company offered to cancel her five-year VIP membership and reduce her bill, although US Air Ducts & Builders is still demanding roughly $500. Berg is disputing the charges.

The company sent her to a collection agency.

A KGW investigation found 16 consumer complaints about US Air Ducts & Builders to the Washington Attorney General’s office since 2017. Seven different consumers have complained to the Oregon Attorney General’s office about the company.

Public records show several customers complained about aggressive sales tactics and excessive bills.

“As soon as they walked through the door, they were telling me that I needed more. I had a bad coupon. I needed the better coupon and let me tell you all that we can do,” explained Reanna Blair of King City.

Blair said she felt pressured to buy the “VIP Package” for $1,794, instead of the $39 air duct cleaning she had seen in a promotional advertisement.

Washington AG sues air duct cleaning companies over deceptive tactics, robocalls

The air duct cleaning operation was the focus of a KGW investigation after numerous customers complained about aggressive sales tactics and excessive bills.

The lawsuit, filed in King County Superior Court named US Air Ducts & Sky Builders, US Air Ducts & Builders, US Air Ducts & HVAC as defendants, along with owner Rami Mornel and general manager Davide Moshe.

In February, Moshe told KGW he did not have to respond to consumer complaints about US Air Ducts & builders because the company didn’t exist anymore.

“I don’t have to. That’s the beauty of it,” Moshe said in February.

The AG’s lawsuit referenced KGW’s investigation and Moshe’s statement.

Moshe could not be reached for comment on the lawsuit.

The complaint claimed the air duct cleaning operation called more than 500 Washington consumers over 100 times. One person received 169 robocalls.

Additionally, the lawsuit claimed the companies used deceptive tactics to convince customers to buy expensive services and long-term memberships.

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson also got a temporary restraining order blocking the companies from using deceptive tactics, including robocalls.

Suffolk comptroller investigating county’s handling of ‘sick building’ in Riverhead

Changes made to consultant’s report by county engineer supported DPW’s decision to allow Cornell Cooperative Extension staff to reoccupy the Griffing Avenue building last summer — only to move back out two months later

The county’s handling of air quality issues at the mostly vacant Cornell Cooperative Extension building in Riverhead, where employees were complaining of mystery illnesses for more than a year before being moved out, has the attention of Suffolk County Comptroller John Kennedy.

The chief engineer at the Suffolk County Department of Public Works dictated changes to an environmental consultant’s report about the building’s air quality, including adding a recommendation that employees could reoccupy the building. After the consultant’s amended final report was submitted to then-public works commissioner Gil Anderson last year, Anderson gave the all-clear for Cornell Cooperative Extension to move back into the building.

But employees began complaining again of the same issues and illnesses. By mid-October, Cornell Cooperative Extension offices were closed again. For a second time, its staff was subsequently moved to alternative worksites.

“I am very surprised that any arms-length outside entity would agree to have their final work product subject to the customer’s review and changes,” Kennedy said in an interview. He said his office will look into the air quality investigations and repairs at the Riverhead building and perhaps launch an audit into the project. “The county receives a significant amount of funding from the state through Cornell,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy says he’s looking at how the county spent more more than $100,000 trying to figure out why the building was making Cornell Cooperative Extension employees sick, before deciding last month to spend nearly half a million dollars to replace the rooftop HVAC units on the building. Relocating the employees and settling them into other worksites — twice — was likely a significant expense, he said.

The building, built about 18 years ago, has been largely vacant since June 1, 2018, following widespread reports of unexplained illnesses by Cornell Cooperative Extension staff beginning in March 2017 — the start of a series of gas leaks at the building that forced evacuations and investigations by town and county fire marshals. Employees complained of headaches, nausea, difficulty breathing, asthma attacks, chest pains, lightheadedness, mouth and throat irritations, burning, watery eyes, runny noses, metallic tastes and more, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Law request.

DPW chief engineer Michael Monaghan edited a July 11, 2018 report from Enviroscience Consultants addressed to him and engineer Thomas Szumczyk. Monaghan’s edits were incorporated into a final report bearing the same date addressed to Anderson, according to the documents.

The DPW engineer made notes to the “Conclusions & Recommendations” section of the Enviroscience report directing edits that included deleting two of the consultant’s eight bullet-pointed recommendations to DPW, changing the language of another and adding a new bullet point. Each change was incorporated into the final report, which was addressed to the commissioner.

Monaghan’s edits are contained in a document provided by DPW in response to a to RiverheadLOCAL FOIL request bearing the filename “MJM Comments.” DPW confirmed that MJM are Monaghan’s initials and the comments were made by him

At the end of the “Conclusions & Recommendations” section, Monaghan added a note that read:

“ADD THE FOLLOWING BULLET: ‘EnviroScience observed no other detrimental environmental condition that would preclude re-occupancy of the facility.’

This sentence was added to the final report submitted to the commissioner, who in August gave the all-clear for Cornell Cooperative Extension to re-occupy the building.

In one note, Monaghan highlighted two bullet points and wrote “DELETE THIS BULLET” next to each, which originally read:
• “Enviroscience encourages the regular monitoring of conditions at these ceiling diffusers in the future to note any new microbial growth or other irregularities.”
• “Regular cleaning of the duct system to reduce potential for mold growth and airborne contaminants is recommended.”

Both bullet points were omitted from the final report submitted to the DPW commissioner.

For a third bullet point that read: “Regular maintenance and mechanical inspections of rooftop HVAC units from a reputable HVAC firm” Monaghan added a note that said, “Delete ‘regular’ and replace with ‘continued’.” The change was also incorporated into the final version of the report.

The county defended the changes through a DPW spokesperson.

DPW hired Enviroscience in the spring of 2018 to perform indoor air quality assessments in the building at a cost of $25,000, according to a county purchase order dated May 29, 2018 indicating the work was to be done as an “EMERGENCY!!!” per the commissioner’s direction.
