To all others who were scammed by Russ Birch through the Canadian Handyman site.... My name is Debbi Austin and I would love to hear from you. This sociopath through misrepresentation, conned me out of over $20,000.00. I won my small claims court case and was being payed back some of the monies until he filed for bankruptcy. I am currently opposing my court order not survive the bankruptcy due to fraud and breech of contract. For more details please feel free to email me email@example.com. Please DO NOT allow him to continue taking advantage of good people. Thank you.
Russ Birch came to build a wrap around deck at my home in Surrey. He had all kinds of pictures in a photo album of his apparent work. Things looked great. He talked like he knew what he was doing. Boy, was I wrong. What a scam artist. I lost about $2500.00 to this chump. I know why Russ Birch is a con man. He is an addict. I know this because I saw him doing drugs in his truck out front of my house. I think he's so out of touch with reality that he doesn't realize people see him. He was doing it right out in the open broad daylight. When he saw me standing in my doorway, he came up to me, rubbing his nose. I told him I think he had better leave. I believe he has started up a new painting company, now going by his middle name Todd. Beware of this guy. He is about 5'6".
A zero star rating out of 5
While working on my project he used the aliases of Russell Shakes, Russell Burns and Russell Birch.
While working on my project his company was known as LRS, dropping the "M"
He can be found on facebook.
He has also 2 complaints on ripoffreport.com
Modus Operandi: Get as much money up front without buying much for supplies and apparently don't pay your workers. Do only the work that shows progress. Beware that he gets you to buy supplies as well. His shoddy work showed in that he knew he would never be around for the final product.
I am further saddened that he is now probably pulling the same con on someone else.
Now I'm stuck living in an incomplete basement while my upstairs remains demolished.
