Termite Inspection / Trying to Rip People Off

Had to have a Termite Inspection done when buying a house, costing $45. Realtor suggested Hughes Exterminators, and was present during the Inspection, since I was not able to be there. I never received a Receipt or Report, so contacted the Realtor who obtained the Report for me. Page 1 said there was no visible signs observed. Page 2 said specific areas were not visible or accessible for inspection, including portions of the attic, interior, eves & fascia. There was a comment that said there was no activity seen at time of inspection. Customer paid $45 with check at time of inspection, which was supposed to be my receipt! Page 3 had a mold disclaimer which said to obtain a mold professional. The Health Department does these inspections. Page 4 said to pay a total of $390 for Pest Control, $270 for Mosquito Control, $200 for Fire Ant Control, $480 for Lawn Care, $265 for Termite Control, not including initial service, initial investment, or annual renewal. Now I know why one of their customers filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. They seem more concerned with money than doing their job it seems!
