BEWARE OF CARLO CALDERONE. HE IS A FRAUDSTER. A PROFESSIONAL SCAM ARTIST. He has a number of fraud charges along with other criminal offenses. For far too long, he has claimed to be a professional general contractor and promised Canadians a renovated house but instead, has taken all their money and left. Not to mention ruin or destroy the house and has a history of not delivering the minimal work he has done by code.
His tactic: HE WILL GIVE YOU AN AMAZING QUOTE AND THEN KEEP ASKING FOR MONEY ALMOST EVERY OTHER DAY.
HE WILL TAKE 90% IF NOT 100% OF YOUR MONEY IN THE FIRST 3 WEEKS IF NOT EARLIER CAUSE HE QUOTES ALL HIS JOBS TO BE 3-4 WEEKS AND THEN NEVER SHOWS UP AGAIN ONCE HE HAS MOST OR ALL OF YOUR MONEY. BY THE TIME THE LAST PAYMENT COMES AROUND, HE EITHER STICKS AROUND OR HE IS GONE ONE DAY WITH HIS TOOLS AND ON WITH THE NEXT VICTIM.
CARLO CALDERONE ALSO CLAIMS HE NEEDS MONEY FOR MATERIALS ALONG WITH THE WEEKLY PAYMENTS BUT HE'LL POCKET THE MONEY AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE THE MATERIALS EVER. OR THINGS YOU DO ORDER, HE WILL RETURN IT HIMSELF AND POCKET THE MONEY OR GET A GIFT CERTIFICATE OR CREDIT NOTE AND NEVER TELL YOU. (I ordered kitchen cabinets and paid for them and got them delivered. He was there when I went to the store to buy them and pay for them. A list he created at the store. Next day he lies and tells me I bought the wrong ones and he needs more money to fix it. He tells me to give him $500 now for the kitchen cabinets and minus that out from his final payment. Later I realized in actuality they were the correct ones and instead he returned the cabinets himself, got gift cards/credit notes from the store for the cabinets I ordered and paid for but he pocketed all that money. Now I am left with pockets of empty kitchen cabinets. He has done this a numerous times with my other materials I bought. Returning materials and claiming money for himself or never bringing the materials I paid for in the upfront.
HE IS LAZY, INCOMPETENT, A LIAR, MESSY, HAS A TERRIBLE ATTITUDE AND CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
He tried putting plywood for my deck as the final product even though I asked and paid for Cedar. PLYWOOD?!??!?!!?
HE IS NOT EVEN A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN LIKE HE CLAIMS HE IS. YET DOES ELECTRICAL WORK WHICH CAN BE DANGEROUS POSSIBLY LEADING TO DEATH.
He blew my furnace and I had to get a real heating guy to redo everything. HE WILL DESTROY YOUR HOUSE. HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING AND PUTS A LOT OF HOME OWNERS AT RISK.
He always finds his victims on kijiji and craigslist so I would like to help and warn homeowners to be aware.
He operates in a bunch of different company names and changes them all the time.
