This is why there are so many "sinkholes" in
Spring Hill. It's called F R A U D and the homeowners who were knowingly involved need to be
prosecuted.

I guess you read the 3 part series on sinkholes too.
Amazing what people have gotten away with. Taking big money
and not using it to repair their "sinkhole damage". What a scam!

Now those folks who keep referring to the major sinkhole problem in Spring Hill can eat their words. There is no major sinkhole problem, just scamming yankees who created the "problem".\

Nobody is saying they aren't real, what the article tell us, as most of us already knew well, there were and are thousands of BOGUS claims and these people pocketed 10's of thousands of dollars.
