DO NOT HIRE JAAC CONTRACTING or KIms Landscaping (His girlfriend works there) they rip off people, take the deposit and never return. His story is the same - please feel free to contact me at email@example.com ( I am hiring a lawyer as he and his girlfriend have ripped everyone off) See below
Hi, I am embarrassed to join the growing Jessie fan club. He got me for waaaay more than I want to say. Same M.O. lots of money up front, dissapear for a while , lots of broken promises, then he returned and started digging , only to stop and tell me he needs more money to continue.
Gave him more money , and he disappeared for good. Have since hired a real contractor to fix his mess and do the job. Basically have paid twice plus a fix it fee.
I feel as though I set my self up to be a victim here, but his last communication to me was he swore to me he was a man of his word and to give him a chance - then he disappeared again. Had he not lied to me at the end, I might have been a bigger person and let him slither away, but many now he's made a fool out of me, and I will pursue him till the day he dies for that one.
Lawyer called this morning. no pitty left. firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to trade war stories.
I hired JAAC Contracting 6 weeks ago, made the arrangements with Jesse ( the Owner) - he demanded 1,000 ( by the way he demanded cash) to purchase materials - would not take payment any other way - just cash and would text and text my husband till he got the cash. As soon as he TOOK our CASH - we could not reach him. I called and called and called - finally his wife answered the telephone, and told me the truck was stolen - that was 2 weeks later ( I have all the texts filed now with my lawyer) - and he could not get his truck out of the impound area ( he could have used the money he took from me) - So I told his wife I would send our company truck to pick up the wood - SHOCKING the wood was also stolen - so I demanded a receipt to prove he actually purchased any wood - EXCUSE No. # 1 - His wife had given it to the Insurance company - so I asked to have the insurance company to forward the receipt to me EXCUSE # 2 - the Insurance company lost the receipt ???!!!### (are you kidding me ??) I demanded my 1,000 he TOOK FROM ME back, EXCUSE # 3 - He fell and mangled his knee and was at the hospital and could not get back to me - NOW I'm into week 3.5 with an open back yard - everything exposed - Jesse finally calls me back as I text him and text him - all I want is my money back as he has NOT Performed any of the work, returned the materials, shown a receipt. WEEK 4.5 - he tells me " I will come and do the fence - BUT I HAVE TO "RE-BUY all the wood " again, so I ask him to adjust the quote showing the 1,000 already paid and he does not reduce it at all - but expect me to buy the material and pay for everything again, I ask for my money back again and again. Now he tells me he needs to "lien a building first to get back my money" - then he could pay me " I'm working on it " he tells me - again, no money - he offers to come and start my fence FRIDAY ( 2 days ago ) he was a NO SHOW - he stolen my money from me - DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY - If anyone is having trouble getting their money back please contact my email - also the lady that lost her 350.00 ( he tells me "She worked at a law firm and did not know what she was doing" I find that hard to believe. I am contacting GLOBAL Trouble shooters, as this type of person takes money from innocent people, and his pattern seems to be the same - excuses. Now it is 6 weeks, and my money is gone. I would have rather donated 1000 to the Homeless for water and food.
my email is : email@example.com please contact me if you are trying to get your deposit back, or if he did not do the work for you
Do not hire Jesse Chapman of JAAC's Contracting & Landscaping for any landscaping jobs. We hired Jesse to put in a pad in our backyard for a shed. He wanted a $350 deposit upfront for supplies. Due to personal issues that arose he was unable to finish the job. The work that he did complete was terrible. The sod that he cut out was crooked and when we measured it was out 6 inches from front to back. We had to spend 6 hours our time cleaning up the mess he left behind and straightening up the sod that he had cut out. We had made many attempts to try to help him out without any luck. We gave him deadlines to finish the job which would come and go and then he would ask for another extension. After numerous demands he has not refunded our $350 deposit which was to be used towards supplies.
