Howard Ain, Troubleshooter: Troubleshooter Updates

PROBLEMS WITH A LIEN ON A HOUSE, AND WITH A CARPET CLEANING COMPANY THAT PROMISED TO TAKE OUT STAINS.
  
LOCAL 12 TROUBLESHOOTER HOWARD AIN JOINS US WITH NEW DEVELOPMENTS ON THESE AND OTHER RECENT STORIES.YOU MAY REMEMBER LAST MONTH I REPORTED WIN TRAN'S WYOMING HOUSE NEEDED A NEW ROOF.
    
ALTHOUGH SHE HIRED A COMPANY AND PAID IN FULL, A SUPPLIER FILED A LIEN ON HER HOUSE.
    
HE CLAIMS HE'S OWED 14-THOUSAND DOLLARS-- MONEY SHE DOESN'T HAVE.

UNYNH TRAN: "I cannot. It’s really hard. I'm a widow. My husband passed away pay 11 years. I work so hard to make it right. So hard for family to stand up."

AFTER MY STORY THE SUPPLIER HAND DELIVERED PAPERS SHOWING THE LIEN HAD BEEN RELEASED BECAUSE SHE HAD PAID THE ROOFER IN FULL.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF:  WHEN YOU PAY A CONTRACTOR GET AN AFFIDAVIT IN WHICH HE STATES ALL SUPPLIERS AND LABORERS HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL. IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE FALSE,  IT BECOMES A CRIMINAL MATTER AND YOU CAN CONTACT THE POLICE.
   
THEN YOU MAY REMEMBER HOW MAUREEN CLEARY OF SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP HIRED FAMILY CARPET CLEANING AND REPAIR IN NORTHERN KENTUCKY-- BUT SOON RAN INTO PROBLEMS.

CLEARY: "The spots where the carpet is not dry there are large brown spots in various places all around the carpet."

BUT DESPITE REPEATED PROMISES TO RETURN AND CLEAN THE SPOTS, CLEARY SAYS FAMILY CARPET CLEANING AND REPAIR HASN'T COME BACK-- AND HASN'T RETURNED MY REPEATED CALLS FOR COMMENT.

FINALLY, BE CAREFUL OF CALLS FROM PEOPLE CLAIMING THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR COMPUTER.

I'M HEARING FROM VIEWERS THIS SCAM IS GROWING.  THE THIEVES WANT CONTROL YOUR COMPUTER SO THEY CAN LOCK IT. YOU CAN'T USE IT UNLESS YOU PAY THEM.
    
SO BEWARE, NO COMPUTER COMPANY IS GOING TO CALL TO TELL YOU YOUR COMPUTER IS BROKEN.
