Aware of Bad Contractors
I hired this guy on Kijiji to do a 10’ x 12’ shed pad at my back yard. We agreed for $1000 tax included. $500 deposit and $500 upon work completion. He started work on April 16, 2019 to remove soil and left it on my yard. Then he didn’t return until I call and text him and start making excuses. Finally, he said he will arrange concrete and come to prep work 3 hours prior to concrete arrival. However, he asked us to pay HST on top of agreed price due to tax purpose. We have no choice but agreed. He delayed two times again since then. His reason is we didn’t confirm we will pay. Therefore, we confirmed with a text message and ask him to arrange. Finally, he ordered concrete for 12:00 noon on May 8, 2019 but his crew only show up at 11:45am to prepare, lay stone and compact. Upon concrete arrival, he insist us to pay him in cash as he has to pay the entire payment to concrete supplier in cash. We paid, but he didn’t pay the concrete supplier on the spot. We also said we will keep $100 and pay when everything is clean up. He refused to. When he pour the concrete, we figure he only pour 9’ x 10’ pad in lieu of agreed 10’ x 12’ pad. We complaint to him and insist him to honour his contract agreement and he ignore us. At the end, he used the left over concrete and pour at the corner of an unprepared area and leave it un-finish and gone. Since then, we texted him and call him, originally he said he will return on the following Saturday / Monday to clean up, but he never returns. Not even returning phone call or text message. I report to Kijiji, BBB, RCMP, CAFC fraud reporting system, consumer protection Ontario of this incident.
After several attempts, he said garbage disposal doesn't mean removal, therefore, I have to call disposal company myself. What kind of sense is that? Also, he is so kind that will not collect the $80 balance to offset the missing 30 sq.ft. of shed pad. What a scam!!!!
I want to know where else I can report him so that people can aware of this contractor / company.
