First flag should of been that he asked for to large a deposit and he goes to the bank to certify my cheque.
First day started ok with the demo of our bathroom.
Second day was ok and the plumber came by with the flu.
Third Day and rest of the full week sick with flu.
Next week kids sick etc...etc.. etc.. waited in and he never turned up.
Said see you Monday, never turned up.
Tuesday called that last customer had reversed their visa payment and all my deposit had gone and he had not purchased any product for my job 3 weeks in.
Told him i would go out with him to buy the goods so he could keep on with the job. So did that. Once we had the goods never turned up again so waited in for no reason.
The tiling started on our floor and shower stall was happy with the tiling work but he was to lazy to cut the tiles outside so we gad mega dust in our bedroom. This is now maybe month 2 or 3. Job started Feb 2014 and was to take 3 weeks to finish Feb. 20th 2014.
Now cannot come to work as he has no money for gas. So i said i would give him gas money, came once and worked for 3 hours at this point in time he has never put in a full 8 hours work in 1 day.
Month 3 cabinet frames where installed and look good. At this point i have paid $600 more than quoted and he still wants me to pay for goods he needs to finish. For 3 months he has been telling me he is making the cabinets and the counter top is ready for install. He text me its $980 for the counter top, i do not reply. Then install day i get the invoice emailed. The installers then tell me that shaun said i would give them a cheque, so i give them one to get them out of my house and put a stop payment on it so he owes his supplier and not me. Shaun told us that the drawer fronts and doors would be ready the next day.
Then no show again as he has no gas so i give him another $100 gas card, it was no activated correctly so we went to the gas station to correct the error then he ended up with another $100 card i purchased for the following weeks work. So work $200 in gas cards i got 3 hours work if that and no cabinet fronts. By this time the Counter top cheque bounced and he refused to work until i made the payment good, remember i have paid more than the quoted job amount. Now his truck was broken into and his case was stolen so the copies of the receipts i gave him for the goods i bought where requested again for the third time. By Know i release that he whats my receipts so he can claim the gst back, so now i say i will give him them when the job is finished, he replies he is not willing to work for free even though I have paid him more than quoted.
Now after 4 months past the finish date i have no counter draw fronts and doors. Tile work and base boards unfinished. No Glass shower doors, Tiles and framing missing. Was sold on a multi jet shower and get a $50 shower head.
Got a glass company to install some glass shower doors and upon installation find out that the water runs outside instead of inside to the drain.
does not answer any calls or text messages.
wish i never heard of this con man.
