No Place Like Home

Home improvement? More like home im-screw-ment! Oh!

KNBC in Los Angeles has

a story

on an alleged scheme by the Home Depot to screw customers nationwide. Apparently the Depot "overcharges customers on window and siding installations, kitchen remodels and on roofing jobs," often billing folks for items that are never installed.

"I've been taught and trained to rip-off customers," a former subcontractor told the station.

The incidents span 22 states, and a producer for KNBC tells HouStoned that Texas is most definitely on the list.

The Depot has promised to make good with any customer who contacts the station here. — Keith Plocek
