“He preys on the weak, senior citizens who have no ability to shovel their own snow,” one viewer said, after paying Jerry DiCesare, the owner of Jerry’s All Season Landscaping, $450 to clear snow for his elderly mother in Mississauga.

The customer, who asked not to be identified because he says his mother is concerned about her safety, said DiCesare accepted money but showed up only twice and insisted on full payment.
