When violent thunderstorms hit, storm damage victims can feel overwhelmed in the storm's wake and may eagerly hire the first contractor who offers to provide storm cleanup. However, Genesis Tree Service warns local property owners to beware of disreputable tree service providers who take advantage of storm-damaged neighborhoods by offering emergency tree services at highly inflated prices. After a thunderstorm has passed, people need to take the extra time to make sure that they hire an honest, credible tree care company to manage storm cleanup.
A Lexington, North Carolina man recently found out the hard way that price gouging ultimately does not pay. In the wake of Hurricane Florence, contractor Alva Lewis overcharged residents for tree removal services. Eventually, his scheme was uncovered, and Lewis will end up paying $20,000 in fines and $6,000 in restitution. Furthermore, his company is barred from carrying out any more storm recovery work in North Carolina. The state Attorney General, Josh Stein, said, "This person took advantage of a homeowner cleaning up in the wake of Hurricane Florence. Price gouging is against the law, and my office will hold businesses and people accountable when they price gouge consumers." Unfortunately, price inflation following major storms is not an infrequent occurrence. The NC Attorney General's office said that the Lewis case is the third price gouging lawsuit that the attorney general has arrived at a judgment or settlement in related to Hurricanes Florence and Michael.
