I have been in the lawn business for almost 10 years now and over that time I have built up a good customer base, and I receive alot of work by word of mouth. The problem lately has been the massive amounts of scrubs taking work away from me. Living in the SE Michigan area, the state seams unwilling to try to regulate this problem. These arent you sterotypical scrubs, alot of them drive fancy new trucks and have decent commercial equipment. I recently lost a large account to one of these guys who I found out through a friend is a scrub. Appearently this guy does everything to pass himself off as being legit, has business cards, and even made up a fake certificate of insurence. When I try to call someone from the state to turn this guy in, I end of giving up after spending a half hour on the phone only to never hear a real person on the other line. I even tried to go the the local police to say hey this guy is running around with fake documents, and the desk cop gives a smart a** answer with smile on his face saying unless the guy is taking money from people and not doing the work there is basically nothing they can do. Then he said "its not like he is practicing medicine without a license, not any harm going to be done to a few blades of grass. I was pi**ed off and walked out of there. I was wondering if any other LC professionals in SE Michigan have had any similiar experiences.
