Owner-Operators at risk red flags of costly shady practices

About Lesson

There are a lot of reasons why your hard-earned dollars are slipping through your fingers - probably you just don't know how to check the information, or you don't expect such a scam on the owner’s end, who, you think, is a friend of yours.

In this Lesson, we talked about a few shady practices that owner operators fall victims to - detention pay issues, fake rate cons, blown-up fuel expenses, cracks in the lease-to-own contracts through which drivers’ hope and dreams may slip, and finally, we talked about repair shop scams that can cost you a hefty sum of money.

This lesson will help you understand how to get your well-deserved money back.
