I too have been scammed by Graham Services, not once but twice. 1st I purchased the DealFind voucher for Snow removal for $99+tax on Dec 17/11. I waited until after Dec 24/11 to register for service on-line at Graham Services. I waited 1-3 hours after the 1st snowfall and no one showed up. Waited 24 hours and nothing, waited 48 hours and still no one showed up. I called Graham Services about 10x, sent 6 emails and even paged them. Not a response at all. Finally I wrote DealFind who apologize and said that they would contact Graham. I waited about a week and in the meantime keep trying to reach Graham Services. DealFind sent me this response - Thank you for your patience while we contacted the merchant.
> We spoke with Graham Services and they sincerely apologize for the lack of communication. They kindly request your contact details, so you get to enjoy this great deal.
> Please provide us with your contact information in order for us to proceed.
I sent DealFind my info once again and waited. On Jan 12/12 I received this email from Graham (copying many other people - Breech of privacy)
> We sincerely apologize for the delay in response to your inquiries.
> This email is to confirm your automatic registration with our unlimited
> snow removal for the 2012 winter season.
> We will arrive to your property up to 3 hours after the snow falls,
> with a minimum of 3 centimetres of snowfall.
> We appreciate your business.
> Thank you.

> Graham Services
Again I waited for service but to no avail. I called too many times to count and emailed this on Jan 31/12
We received this email of apology and stating that the service would start automatically ASAP but NO ONE has shown up at our house yet. There is snow and ice on our driveway and I had a car accident and my mom is elderly and we cannot do it.
Please send someone to plow and salt our driveway and walkway ASAP.
Honestly not impressed with your service!!!!!
The same day I received this very unusual email from Graham Services.

I responded with:
Hello, I really am skeptical about your company since I have purchased over 100 deals from Deal find and have never had an issue with them or payment. The fact that your company is being so underhanded by refusing their deals and offering the deals personally really concerns me.
That being said, we need this service and will purchase it from you directly and do hope that we will NOT encounter any problems with the service with Graham services.
I went on your website and do not see a credit card option. Please advise if I can purchase this with a credit card????
Please advise ASAP
P.S. Why was I not advised of this way back on Jan 12th? Also, to confirm the rate is $89 plus free summer lawn maintenance?
Graham responds with:

Since then I have not heard back. I am assuming because I would not pay by bank transfer or pre-paid chq that they could not get my money and credit card does not work well since they will investigate problems.
I have tried many times to call again and send emails but no response. Yesterday I spoke with Ashleigh and she said someone in sales would call but no call back. Then got in touch with an Andre Clarke and he was very upset and said that he did not work for Graham Services and how I got his # and said not to call again.
Graham Services is the worst company I have ever been in touch with. This is a big scam and they should be legally charged. All I can say is TG I did not purchase deal from them. I got a credit from Deal Find but am sure that I would get nothing from Gram Services.
Do NOT buy anything from Graham Services.
