Let’s face some facts… it does not matter what your intelligence level is, you can be a doctor or a fry cook. If you have not done your research in the area needed you can easily become a victim of being overcharged or talked into a service you do not need!
So how do you prevent yourself from being a victim? One of the problems of most Americans is our lack of doing our due diligence. Being an impulse society we just want to get it over with, and unfortunately this is EXACTLY what gets them into trouble.
What you need to understand is that all professions consist of good hard working, ethical professionals looking to do a good job for you. BUT there are also many who just look to take advantage of your lack of knowledge of the system they operate in and take your money without getting the service you paid for.
