clamed to do tree service work,said he had a crew that could trim the trees that I needed trimming with a bucket truck and a grapple skid steer machine that would clean up the trees and limbs that would be cut. I had 3-4 trees that were dead no bigger than eight in. across at base. he told me he would have to have half the money after he sawed the trees down ,gave him a check and told me his crew would be here the next morning to trim and finish the job.after a week of no show I called the sheriff’s dept.they investigated him and found he had scamed or fraud approx. 15 other people who were all senior citizens also. The states attorney office refused to signoff on a warrant for his arrest and now ,all of us seniors are out of thousands of dollars! He has been in prison and county jail and is on probation now! IF you see a balding man wearing a work vest driving a Black newer Dodge Truck-RUN HIM OFF YOUR PROPERTY !!!!
