Dear Consumer Ed: In the state of Georgia how much time do landlords have to inspect and give you an itemized list of damages after you move out of an apartment? To refund the security deposit? Are there treble damages in Georgia if they break the rules?

Dear Consumer Ed: Are dry cleaners required to disclose the prices for items to be cleaned at the time they’re dropped off?
Dear Consumer Ed: After taking an online survey, I received an offer for a mystery shopper job. I completed a brief online training and I was sent a check for $1,300 to start work. The first job was to evaluate a wire transfer service by sending a $1,000 money transfer and then answering some questions about the experience. They said I could keep the remaining $300 as my fee. They even said I should wait a week before making the transfer to allow the check to clear first, but it still sounds fishy to me. What do you think?
