Comment News (Gosnells) - - OPINION -

MANY in to­day's society have a ten­dency to sup­ply goods and ser­vices that are well be­low stan­dard or are fraud­u­lent in na­ture.

I have de­vel­oped the habit of seek­ing a re­view for any goods and ser­vices that I wish to buy or use.

Mod­ern tech­nol­ogy al­lows us, with just a few key­strokes, to find out the opin­ions of oth­ers about the goods or ser­vices we are in­tend­ing to use by en­ter­ing in the prod­uct or ser­vice fol­lowed by 're­view' into many of the in­ter­net search en­gines that are avail­able.

It is sad that we have to be so vig­i­lant when we re­quire the ser­vices of trades­peo­ple who should be de­vot­ing their time to cus­tomer ser­vice and sat­is­fac­tion, rather than try­ing to 'make a quick buck' through dis­hon­est or fraud­u­lent means.

Be aware of your rights and the power that you have through a few key­strokes - you will save your­self so much heartache and, hope­fully, get the goods and ser­vices that you de­serve. GER­ARD MCMANUS, Cur­ram­bine.
