Crime Scene Cleanup Fraud




Crime scene cleanup consumer fraud, price gouging, occurs daily across our country. Mostly, a mix of wrong doers create this criminality. County employees and crime scene cleanup companies become co-conspirators in fraud.

Insurance companies unwittingly enrich these theives as price gouging follows this type of monopoly ran by white-collar criminals.

"Why should we NOT expect our coroner and administration employees to cheat us?"

When a company refuses to accept credit cards, watch out. Price gouging follows."

A universal principle for healthy minds, rational minds, goes something like this:

A crime scene cleanup consumer fraud narrative for families victimized by their county employees.


Orange County Consumer Fraud - So much hits the Internet related to consumer fraud it's hard to imagine another fraud scheme against consumers. Well enough, there's plenty more in Orange County, California's coroner's department. I've added these pages for the public's education and protection.





The human condition includes crime. More specifically, the human condition includes offensive behavior. Oddly, "crime" as we understand it came well after what we might consider the human condition's beginning. Why the wait for crime's arrival? Easily enough, we had to wait for offensive behavior to upset enough people to create this idea we call "crime."

Offending a group's leader led to a quick solution for social and individual offenses. Homicide would have meant little beyond ridding a small group of a social nuisance. Or, it may have meant a group's leader ruled on the margins of social and psychological pathologies. Hitler would serve as a clear example of this type of ruler.

Early Greeks referred to an intellectual mistake or an offense against the community as krima. Not a moral mistake, it meant an intellectual wrong against an individual or community.

Today we know that ancient to modern societies create rules and standards for socialized behavior; the outcome of these rules and standards either prove their worth to ruling elites like oligarchs, or fail.

Failure to protect members in society does not cause these rules and standards to disappear; failure to protect ruling oligarchs, a ruling class, or ruling elite does cause these rules and standards to change if not disappear from popular language and awareness.

Protection of land ensures the place of rules and standards for rulers; today we have laws for the "land question."

We can see how laws became powerful with the question of land ownership. Many people murdered over land will soon have company from future generations murdered over the land question. Can you guess where?

So the writing or documentation of successful rules and standards become a body of laws like real property laws. These laws define offensive behavior as behavior against land and buildings; tresspass and burglary, for example, work well as standards for offenses against the public good, law breaking.

Homicide as a law works well for the murder of a human being, intentionally, Penal Code 187 -- murder, or by accident -- manslaughter. So acts in conflict with the laws become reified just as ownership of land becomes socialized into "civilized" societies, societies using the written word.

Homicides and suicides concern us on this web site as poor forms of socialized behavior. Add to these unattended deaths with decomposition issues, and we have, roughly, many blood cleanup needs in today's society.



People new to this crime scene cleanup phrase may wonder how the word "scene" fits into horrific events called "crimes." After all, scenes take place in plays, movies, and story telling most of the time. In terms of a word's context, as in this case, its context may alter its meaning.

In the case of law enforcement and criminal activity, the physical presence, the place of a criminal act, becomes a scene. Not because of a literary context, but because we humans perceive with our eyes, nose, ears, and skin.

When an unusual act, event, or process occurs, we use our perceptual apparatus long enough to focus on a "scene." Hunters do the same, stop in their tracks to focus on prey.

As it goes, when out of the ordinary, we focus on our environment. It becomes a scene; everything else continues rolling along as time passes; in this way we stop to preserve a crime scene for understanding.

It happens that law enforcement uses this term when acting out their official roles. The scene remains a stable part of their environment as they focus their attention on details.



If nothing else, crime scene cleanup means a janitorial form of niche cleaning. It means most specifically blood cleanup and infectious human waste cleanup. It's more than cleaning, though. It's also some part demolition.

By the way, do you think county employees would bother cheating victims' families if homeowners insurance stopped covering blood cleanup, with or without demolition?

There's an incentive to destroy a building's structural property when a homeowner's insurance covers a crime scene cleanup. Without structural damage there's little cause to add thousands of dollars to the cleaning job. With the removal of floor, ceiling, and walls, well, invoices grow.

It happens that a professional biohazard cleanup cleans and rarely demolishes; although, at times there is no available means to save some blood soiled real estate property. As for personal property, most often professional cleaners can save much of it.

Furnishings with fabric and cushioning can be saved if necessary, but this first requires remove blood and OPIM. Then a trip to an upholstery shop fixes the damage. Carpet must go, at least the soiled portion. Most soiled clothing should go, but washing out blood and OPIM makes sense for keepsakes. Keepsakes like pictures, jewelry, certifications and diplomas can be cleaned at times.



Consumers pay for goods and services. When it comes to crime scene cleanup fraud, victims' families pay for a crime scene cleanup company's services. These families have no idea that their county coroner employee or county executer (Public Guardian) perpetrate fraud against victims' families.

Why would anyone's family members suspect their civil servants of cheating them? It turns out that the opposite mind set screams for our attention. Why should we not expect our coroner and administration employees to cheat us? (return)

By misdirecting a victim's family these employees stand to increase their income by thousands of dollars every year. Think about it. Whose going to know?

How can we expect victims' families to know that their county assigned employees will direct them to a corrupt crime scene cleanup business?

With the exception of my hundreds of web sites, there's little to show that coroner employees gouge families. Rest assured, given their ideal conditions for wrong doing, evil doing, select county employees ensure a place for fraud to live long and prosper.


Fraud - Price Gouging


I first recognized this fraud, price gouging, when my many web sites failed to elicit calls from victims' families; at least, calls from families with home owner's insurance ceased. "Why," I wondered. The answer screamed at me. It's because coroner employees found a golden egg in victims' homeowners insurance.

Crime scene cleanup services include blood and other potentially infectious material removal. It's about thorough cleaning and sanitizing. Crime scene cleaners scrub, rinse, and scrub and rinse again. Chemical cleaning solutions and disinfectants add to the cleaning process.

And it is a process. There's no one attempt at getting it right. Dwellings and businesses must receive complete biohazard removal. Biohazard cleanup follows these same steps because the Center for Disease Control and the Occupational Health and Administration mandated that all human blood is a biohazard. Known as blood borne pathogens, these germs carry the HIV and Hepatitis C viruses. So we scrub and rinse, sanitize, and then remove blood soiled materials.

At times crime scene cleanup requires demolition. This means that parts of walls and floor may need removal. At other times, entire floors and complete walls must come out, but very rarely. Crime scene cleaners know what they need to remove for biohazard cleanup. Nothing less will do.

Beware, fraud occurs most often because of demolitions used to jack up invoices.

Calling a professional crime scene cleanup company ensures less emotional trauma for victims' families. A professional cleaner for crime scene cleanup, blood cleanup, suicide cleanup may also clean after an unattended death with decomposition. Call for help, for information and appointments 24/7/365.

Reach a professional cleaner with over 10 years experience. A crime scene cleanup company will use trained cleaners with bloodborne pathogen certification. Their cleaners make decisions and destroy personal property directly related to the criminal act and death scene, if there was a death. They will reduce and remove biohazards from bio waste. Biowaste will be removed from solid waste.



Payment: Expect a crime scene cleanup company to accept homeowner's insurance, credit cards, and some companies will accept checks or cash. When a company refuses to accept credit cards or even your check, watch out. Price gouging follows. (return)

Some companies will quote a price for the full cleanup, sight unseen. They should honor their quoted price. Others will insist on seeing the scene before offering a quote.

Some crime crime scene cleanup companies establish a formal business relationship and insist on a signed contract with property liens and more. There are strong similarities between these crime scene cleanup companies and other services, such as water damage and restoration companies; others are less formal and accept the terms and conditions of a verbal contract. Terms and conditions should be clear and concise before work begins, whatever business model your crime scene cleanup company follows.

The consumer should always ask for an invoice to reflect work completed and fees paid.

A biohazard cleanup company should have business insurance. They should have at least one million dollars in general liability, and two million may be the standard.

What Biohazard Cleanup Companies Should Do -

Crime scene cleanup companies should include the following services:

  • Dissect the majority of biowaste,
  • Remove all bio waste related to the criminal act and death scene,
  • Remove all solid waste related to the criminal act and death,
  • Remove all or the majority of carpet and padding from crime scene room,
  • Chemically disinfect non-porous surfaces,
  • Chemically fog entire rooms or seal porous surfaces,
  • Reduce or remove odors,
  • Return to scene if asked to return,
  • Foresee damage beyond eyesight,

What Biohazard Cleanup Companies Should Not Do:

  • Be inquisitive about personal matters,
  • Remove personal property not soiled by criminal act or death,
  • Remove items from unaffected areas,
  • Remove odor permeated property, unless so directed,
  • Place solid waste in biohazard bags or boxes,
  • Increase prices without valid, unforeseen damages,
  • Offer coroner employees a kickback for insurance manipulation,
  • Refuse to accept your calls once off the premises,
  • Require a release from cleaning responsibility,
  • Refuse to return.


We need ethical people to serve our families and businesses. This truth becomes more so following a traumatic event. We trust cleaners to enter our homes. We trust these people to do in our home what they would have others do in their own home. Unfortunately, we do not always get what we want.

It's a matter of moral training and ethical conduct. It's a matter of what a person first learns about trust, duty, and honor. Some of us receive a strict and guided course of daily training in these abstract ideas. Others receive little if any.

We know too that just because one person receives life's pearls and wisdom from parents, there's no guarantee their behavior follows a moral path. We often find this result in criminal conduct. Wall Street will prove this point more than enough.

Must we preach the gospel of “the greatest happiness of the greatest number” to make it stick? No, it would do little good. It would do little good because this lofty ideal has both a rational and intuitive basis. In fact, it would be hard to imagine a healthy mind missing this obvious Truth.

We have a wish to live by a universal norm, a normative ethics. This ethics guides us as the fundamental normative demand. It's about our .moral freedom. This freedom allows us to choose between right and wrong. This freedom allows us to chose to act rationally or irrationally.

Of course, these lofty ideas mean nothing to an ill mind, an alcoholic mind, a drug addicted mind; for in these minds the rational and irrational no longer remain apart.

We look to a Psychological Hedonism, which means that each of us looks to our own Happiness. And we look to an Ethical Hedonism, which means that we seek a general happiness for all. Both of these conditions use words like “pleasure,” “happiness,” and in both each has its own meaning. For one there’s personal interest; for the other there’s duty. Both become mutually exclusive under certain conditions. For personal interests, a high point in ethical conduct would submit to altruism. In terms of a social interests, a duty, a high point in ethical conduct



In the end, our own happiness becomes very demanding. Heroism follows a general duty to others at the expense of our own happiness. But must a sacrifice of personal freedom proceed heroic duties? Do these two species of egoistic and social behaviors belong on opposite scales, or scales running parallel to one another. A crime scene cleanup advisory page offers more information. Then at any point in time they intervene in one another’s life-long trajectory for any individual? Again, we do mean, here, the happiness of healthy minds.

A universal principle for healthy minds, rational minds, goes something like this: act from a principle or maxim that your behavior will be a universal. (Immanuel Kant). Note the “golden rule” of the gospel – “Do unto others as ye would that others should do unto you” turned into a form submitting it to our reason, as in the first sentence of this paragraph.
