I'm a council member in the strata complex I live in and it has really pissed me off over the past several months how various contractors and trades try to scam us every month on "supposed" work they did!!! We were recently overbilled by not 100 or 200 dollars, but $5,000!!!! There simple excuse was ooops sorry...We've had numerous over charges and double billings so much so that we really have to literally watch every invoice that comes in and review it under a microscope now!!! I'm sure other strata's probably have the same problem and I think because we don't get paid for what we do that we simply just blindly approve every invoice that comes in. I'm sure much of these companies rely on that and try to sneak in extra charges hoping it will not be on the radar. I just wonder how many thousands of dollars are paid out each year to these essential criminals!!! Why I say no one can stop it, simply because how do you police something like this!! So needless to say the scaming continues.
