Ams Charge back 60 days after I was paid on the order

I just got a charge back on a property I completed 3 months ago in Oakland. It was a cap job so I got the base amount. I trashed out the house and the basement crawl space.

Well I got a order this morning for that same property that said -$50 for trashout with no other info.

I contacted the state rep and she said one contractor on a recurring service found trash in the crawlspace and they are deducting that amount to cover it....

Good luck..

Do you have a picture of the crawlspace with "no debris" in it? If so, you can claim it was placed after the fact.

Otherwise you are SOL.

You can try the fight that you didn't bill that for that cubic yard,and had you removed it you would have billed higher...but it would probably be a waste of time.

Freddie, I hope you have either an "after" photo or at least a condition photo of that crawl space showing it's empty

Freddie,

Hey at least it was a "quick" chargeback and not 5 years after the fact. You actually have time (if property is not sold) to go back to property and deposit debris and take pics showing the "next contractor" dumped at the property and you can remove for $500.00.

OOPS SORRY.... YOU should not be doing this! Nobody would ever do anything like this. The first contractor wouldn't have EVER put a little debris there to make some money on YOUR back. OR maybe you left a ton of debris? Stinks either way.

Yeah I have photos showing the afters in detail but of course when he take befores 60 days later a lot of debris just appeared. It sucks but nothing you can do really.

I've never tried to make a dishonest buck in this business and it sucks that so many people do.

I only do initials for them not recurring so once I leave a property I never go back.... That is unless I get a callback

Isn't it cheaper to pay the $50, than to return to the property?

I may not be much of a businessman, but I do recurring services for AMS and polish a lot of turds left behind for me. In many cases, I just do it, and move to the next job. I can not envision a scenario where it would be worth my time to stage debris, at least enough to make it worthwhile, and clean it back up. By the time you get your state rep on the phone, get your work order approved, and still have to actually do the work and haul the material, you could have done the next service or two and been way ahead. But, I guess it happens. I mean hell if you want to make a dishonest buck, rip a damn shingle or two off
