If it had zero stars it would get that.
this one man company, it appears, is worthless. I found him off the yellow pages, first mistake. He knew we were transfering data and installing from two old computers to two new computers. Didnt even come with a hard drive, just wanted to take the computers back with him, which i do understand but that is scary. I had to give him a hard drive to put the info on. Also, had a COMPLETE list of things that needed to be done post the reinstall of data all typed up in excel. I did tell him I would do some of it however.
Oh no problem we can do this, no problem. then he took out his costing sheet added it up and it was 270. Fair price i thought.
He asked for half down...I said sure. He said he would come back the next day and reinstall and do the other things needed as well.
He came back a half hour late, and said, here is all your data on your external hard drive, just reinstall it. I said what about all the other things that needed to be done? He said, I will come back or do it over the internet or have ONE OF MY GUYS call you and do it. I said okay, but he asked for the other 135.00...I told him I would pay that AFTER he completed the job.
He called me back after leaving (10 minutes) and said, I will not do the rest of the work until you pay me the 135.00 balance...I said, okay, comeback and get it as he had me between a rock and a hard spot. He said no, go to my bank, and deposit cash and then I will finish the work via the internet... So we drove 7 miles to his Union Bank and deposited the money. He called back and said he would do it later in the day...i said, I am the customer, i need this done sooner than later in the day as it was for my business. He hung up and said he would call at noon. Never called...I pursued him all day and night. Never answered the phone. I called with a number he did not know was me...he did not answer that night.
However the next morning at 8 am the unknown number rings and it is him looking for whomever called needing work. needless to say he was shocked when he heard my name and voice. He said, I had a heart attack, I am in the hospital and will be out around 11 am. This guy cant be 35...what a joke.
Bottom line, he will pay me back 135 or I will make his life miserable with a small claims suit, internet trash and you name it.
In the meantime i found a very reliable guy who fixed everything in 90 minutes...this other guy was lost when he was at my house.
So NEVER use these guys or this company or whatever they are. This vendetta is now about principal, not 135.00.
