I WORKED FOR THEM AND QUIT!

After working for them for 2 months, myself and 2 others had quit

because they were ripping people off.

They would take there deposits (1/2 down) and drag their feet with

having us doing the work. We, the employees would be dealing with

the customers and would have to keep lying to them.

As more materials would be needed, Brian & Dennis would force the

customers to pay the balance of the job in full.

Materials that were used were inferior and were not paid for.

Here is how we found out about the scam. Brian & Dennis would start

us on a job, then they said they needed us somewhere else so we

would not be returning to the job. On 2 different occasions I had

given out my phone number, once to a girl for a possible date and

once to a customer who was interested in buying my motorcycle.

Both these individuals had contacted me because they could not find

Dennis & Brian to finish the job. I then talked with 2 other workers

who were aware of the same thing after working there for the first 2

weeks.

We all got together and went to see every customer we had all had to

deal with for the last 2 months. Almost all 18 customers had paid

infull. All customers were victims of a rip-off. Some customers put

a second mortgage on there homes or borrowed from friends and

relatives.

THEY TOOK OUR TAX MONEY TOO

Myself and the two other workers were paid in full, always in cash.

They deducted Taxes out saying they were paying the taxes. They

said, they were changing bank accounts. They handed us cash with a

paper showing the deductions.

The only number to reach them is by a beeper.

They are real slick.

The work they say they do and never get past 10% of the job is:

Roofing, aluminum siding, additions, kitchens & bathrooms.

I will post my new e-mail address in a week or so as I'm getting off

of AOL.
