Case Histories

I'm just going to add things here when I see them.  There's so many, its a bit bewildering really.. but here goes..

One thing I want you to do for your amusement... Look up lots of damp companies... and put the postcode into Google Earth... Have a look at the properties that come up.. Street view is brilliant.. Tell you what - you will be shocked at the shonky looking places that appear on your screen.  Thanks to Google we can figure these scams for what they are.. Fraud, Pure and Simple.

Look at the logos on their sites - they mostly have the Property Care Association logo which supposedly gives peace of mind.. The PCA issues scam 'qualifications' which are NOT academically supported in any way - these are CSRT and CSSW - they have no academic credibility and are meaningless.  A Property Care Association 'Surveyor' is just a salesman for toxic chemicals.
