Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Seattle, WA - Jun 23, 2017 - Situation Urgent
Earlier this month, a wayward residential contractor was arrested in South Carolina after being a fugitive from justice for roughly 5 years. In that time, he reportedly went from state to state (cumulatively 10) collecting thousands of dollars per household for work he never finished or did not start. When he was finally apprehended, he had reportedly amassed in the area of 1.5 million dollars.
In retrospect, it was only two short years ago (2015) when the Consumer Federation of America reported home improvement fraud as among the “Top Ten Consumer Complaints” in the country. Normally, only consumer fraud events affecting the largest number of people in the U.S. make the list. Home improvement fraud occupied two positions on that list: No. 1 and No. 6 (The latter subcategorized under “Services).”
The situation-related summary is that these events occurred because residents were extraordinarily under-informed, under-prepared, and under-strategized against it. There has been no change in this present American dilemma among many of our private home heads.
The Relativity to “M.S.E.”
“M.S.E.” are the initials for “Maximum Study Edition”. They appear in the heading being the abbreviation for “Power in the House! – M.S.E. – Maximum Study Edition”. This is a resident-friendly manifesto, presently, in e-book form, which is primarily accessible only through the website of that name. The reason is that it contains over 1,000 cross-relational/interconnected hyperlinks (exponentiated result with use) for which there is no “e-reader” technology advanced enough to accommodate.
The design is intentional in order to meet the “need for speed” when residents would like to access any point of the manifesto of interest in a matter of seconds or less. The rudimentary design of this work is to facilitate awareness among U.S. private home heads with respect to making the best possible decisions in matters of contract-related home maintenance and improvement priorities.
The downside is that there is a pronounced market tendency among consumers (in this case, ‘residents’) towards pursuit of what is popular or widely known. That which is not is typically regarded as “insignificant.” The greater the perceived insignificance of an offering, the greater its actual insignificance, notwithstanding any positive impact to the contrary.
Succinctly, open “M.S.E. Preview Excepts” on its respective site, is hoped to play a key role in a fairer evaluation of this offering, which in turn, can enable readers to make a more equitable assessment of how much we really know about making the best decisions about contractors, and how much we really do not. This is especially with respect our special home maintenance and improvement priorities.
“Crooked residential contractors are like seemingly harmless-looking grizzlies, tigers, snakes, and dogs…but because they’re human, they’ll do a lot more damage with just a handshake and your permission to give them full reign over your home projects.”
