Air Duct Cleaning Scams Exposed on NBC’s Dateline Program

BUSTED!  Scammers Exposed

We’ve all seen the coupons and advertisements promoting “whole neighborhood air duct cleaning for $49.95,” and heard the horror stories from consumers who got taken by these companies. Now the national media has taken notice.

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) worked with Dateline NBC over a six month period to expose a scam operation and the company’s unethical business practices. Aired on January 9 at 7 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) as a special two-hour Dateline program, reporter Chris Hansen exposed these fraudulent companies and helped educate the general public about the HVAC cleaning industry.

This Dateline episode will show “hidden camera” scenes uncovering instances of brazen scam artists preying on uninformed consumers.

Alliance has voiced it’s own opinions on these scam “bait and switch” organizations—learn more here!
