Don’t get ripped off

Dear Editor:Remember the outrageous $14,000 bid I got from Jim Raitt’s Service Master when the other bids were $2,000? Four Seasons seems to be on the same program.Last year Four Seasons bid $500 for snow removal from my roof – four men – two on the roof, two belaying from below.
