If they are working for 5 Bros the whole program is bogus. You are definitely not alone. I didn't think it was possible but I hear they are worse than ever.

yup......sounds about right. after 185cyd trash out we broom sweep and attempt to clean the discusting fridge with really good pics and bid to remove. 3days later I send an email and call to verify they are happy and will process the order they say " yes that's fine, all looks good " on the phone and email, 6 months latter I get charged back ....., when I demand pics of what the other contractor did that I didn't they wont show me for a few days then come to find out the other guy did the same as me, showed pics trying to clean with no success and bid to remove ... they gave him the bid approval to remove and charged me back the full price for the "cleaning" AND the removal that was the day we parted ways

I don't know that they are starting this all just now. They fit in with the group of nationals known for this practice and have been doing it a long time.
End of month collections to ensure the department head gets her bonus.

We got a call from them maybe 5-6 years ago. Emergency grass cut needed on a property 40 miles from us. The city has issued a 7 day notice and they were willing to pay up to $150. We get there and the yard is over 4' tall with horse weeds and brush and debris hidden and buried beneath. Probably a half acre lot. We called it in and told them it was $450 take it or leave it. They agreed and emailed over a poc. We knocked it out that afternoon.

Apparently the next morning the city guys (summer help) came by behind us and cut the yard again. 5B notified us a couple weeks later that besides not paying us, they were backcharging us what the city billed the client, as they claimed we didn't cut the yard, the city did. Well, exf data on pics are a bugger aren't they? I explained we would be expecting payment within 5 days or we would lien the house. The supervisor calls me back and says, "We'll give you an option-a) We don't pay you and we will continue our relationship as usual and send you work, or b) we will pay your invoice and no longer use your company.
Guess which one I chose....

Here is one for you. We stopped performing all work for them back in July. Just 6 weeks ago I happen to check our old email account for something else and find a no charge order. The order was to remove mold stained paneling and drywall because the photos from the initial secure show it was there and we didn't bid it properly.
Well I sent them the response that we are closed and will not be doing it. 1) Because I know we bid it and they denied the bid. But the best is, wait get this, the initial was in 2013. Are you kidding me? So then last week they send me a notice they are back charging us for $3000.00 for the work another contractor had to do.
This was my response. "We have not worked for you since July. we did originally bid the job and you denied it. My attorney has been advised that if you try to collect anything from our insurance policy which is no longer active. Not only will we fight it, but we will forward all of the information to the US Attorney office and file charges of wire fraud and theft by deception".
They are so stupid, besides if we are closed and they do not owe us anything, how are they backcharging?
