Total money lost $1,000
Type of a scam Home Improvement
Mike Hamer, who purports to own Mike’s Wrought Iron in Waterdown Ontario, came to our home in January 2018 to give us an estimate for replacing a wood railing on our deck with a metal one. We gave him $1000 towards materials and as a down payment on the job. He took our old railing, allegedly to use as a template. We have not seen him since. He does not respond to email or phone messages (his mailbox is generally full) and we do not have an address for either his home or place of business.
At the same time, he has a very current, attractive and professional looking website which I am sure continues to lure unsuspecting customers.
