New chimney sweep scam and it's incorrigible. They now call and say you made an appointment and are hard core about it. You tell them no and they don't stop. You hang up then get a second call. Being elderly seniors may not remember what they said to who, they are easily manipulated. When I told her absolutely no appointment was made and this is a scam, she told me to go ****myself and called me the N word. Last I checked I was white. The point is that this is insidious. I called the police and made a report. I gave the police the number on the caller ID. I feel badly for reputable chimney companies that have to answer for the actions of these criminals.

wow talk about judgementle maybe their kids don't live close . beside many people of all
ages get scammed by these people . you sound like the first person who they could scam ,
if you need a sweep are you going to climb up on the roof to see if your cap and pipes are in good condition before they get there NO your going to take their word for it . I'm in a related business and see this all the time. people call and asked if we provide this service , when we say yes and tell them it's 150.00 ,we always hear the other guy I called said it was only 30. or 40 dollars . YES and when he gets there and does a half ass job and tells you your cap is rusted and falling apart ,or your in danger of a chimney fire and might burn your house down because the pipes are rusted thru ,but he will reline it for 600.00 . most people get it done .these guys work on commission and could not servive doing the job for that kind of money . if your in business between salaries ,insurance , workers comp , and taxes you can't even start your truck up for 30 , 40 dollars . some people go with them because that's what they can afford ,others because their cheap (the people not the service ) but remember
