How can this happen! Follow up to a previous question of a negligent contractor
Recieved letter fromDA office today , alleging damages from a complaint filed from a negligent contractor we hired 6/7/19. We are now Being threatened with, Grand Larceny third degree Class D felony. Contractor tried to say wrote a bad check but that backfired on him .They make no mention that the contractor stole $5000-6500 worth of property from our home … can I file the same charges against him , Ive already reported the theft to the police …
this contractor is not going through his insurance ( none) has not filed mechanics lien ( no contract ) or filed in small claims ! Why go the DA route are there judgements already against him that he doesn’t want to be seen ! Help ! Im told they don’t investigate him because he brought the complaint. “ What! really?) If we didn’t stop payment on the check, he would have made off with our money and we would be the ones running after him and being told too bad, you should have known better !
And can I file a complaint with the attorney generals office … this is a deceitful and unscrupulous contractor. Problem is he’s pissed that we refused to pay 100% of the job on day one. It was not completed at all, no cement was poured, so job was not finished ! Seems he starts a job on a Friday, demands full payment upfront around 11am , runs to the bank to cash the check, now your going into a weekend so the check will clear and when he comes back by mid week and tries to finish ignoring any damage he has created he has your money so he’s off and running !
Seems we stopped him in his tracts and he’s pissed !
What do we fo from here !
I refuse to knuckle under to this thief…
Bragged about doing 75 jobs a season but wants cks made out to him not his company wonder if the IRS knows !
He caused over $12,888of damage , which my homeowners deducted depreciation and my deductible from their final quote on damages . on a
$8500 job ! We stopped payment on check … he’s been harassing us, constantly driving past the house and following me to the store ! Police say nothing they can do !
