This Toronto contractor Adam Gardin (who now lives in Michigan) took a lot of money from customers. He pleaded guilty to 11 charges today. I tracked him down three years ago and I was in court today when he was arraigned. My story and video here.
Counterfeit goods at a licensed retailer? My report on the Raptors, Foot Locker and a fake.
Show me the money! say some Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart customers. No cash available on gift cards or the right number of loyalty points, many complain. My report.
More salty boots! Went to the auto show and we discovered consumers think it is is unsafe you could have a car fire if your kids salty boots come in contact with the rear vents. Here is my report.
Salty kids boots: Audi blames owner for smoke in the cabin. Really? My first report.
Driven a Ford lately? A Brantford man’s five day old F-150 bursts into flames on his driveway. It is a write off and his home is seriously damaged. My report on Kevin’s issue and Ford’s response, which isn’t winning any praise from the customer. Beware, he says.
I talked to a guy who makes a really, really fast car today.
Reporting tonight exclusively on how consumers got hammered by a company demanding debt repayment. That company was led by a Toronto lawyer now running as a Liberal candidate. She was disciplined by the Law Society of Ontario in 2013 for professional misconduct. Her mom is a Liberal MP named Judy Sgro. Her name is Deanna Sgro. Aka Deanna Natale—but many complainants wouldn’t know her as Sgro because she was known as Natale prior to her candidacy.
Thanks to all who check this space for consumer information and help. We try our best to get back to viewers/readers but the volume of emails and calls can be overwhelming for a very small team. And thanks to those who’ve noticed my bus shelter/bus ads the last several months! #IWorkForTheViewer
Airline was “tipped off” to transportation agency decision before public was told. Not fair says consumer advocates. Imagine a criminal court judge calling the defence lawyer the night before the court verdict and giving his/her decision and sentencing in advance just to the defence and not the prosecution. Never. And yet...
How’d you like to get stuck having to pay thousands to get home —because the airline can’t turn your booking into a board pass? This happened to a Toronto family. My exclusive report.
Not my usual consumer related content here, but I was asked to report on reaction to the resignation of Patrick Brown amid sexual misconduct allegations. Here is that story tonight.
