Add these to the dodgy list

I work in the NW Georgia / SE Tennessee area and have a short list of companies / contractors to stay away from.

RPM Services, RPS Services, Scott Allen Raines, Allen Raines, Alfie Raines, Janet Raines. This is all one person...google him.

Surety Lending Solutions. Paid me $190.00, I think, to tarp a split level 2000 sq ft house. Also took over 90 days to pay on their 45 day payment schedule.

DMC Mortgage Service. They got me to do work for them and then simply stopped answering their phones, emails and texts.

I'm interested to know if anyone else on this forum has had similar experiences with any of these "operators"

On a positive note: I found this site today and have spent (too) many hours reading posts from experienced vendors and increasing my overall understanding of this industry. Thanks for a great site and for confirming that I am not alone in my PP experiences.

Welcome aboard. Your list of alias' sounds like a criminal background check. I'm sorry to say that it isn't rare.

Nice list,at least one of these outfits operates in my area and they're always trolling for new victims around here.
It would be nice to have" a Beware of " sticky on the site, but it would probably contain the names of 90% of the Regionals......

You tarped a 2000 sq ft roof for $190.00, YOU THINK? The regional you did that for made a huge profit off you. I bet they laughed all the way to the bank when you accepted that. Heck I started laughing when I read that.

No way the $190 covered the tarps, lath, and nails, fuel to drive there, etc. unless they were all items found in a trashout......

They told me $1000.00. That's why I did the tarp job in the first place. They have paid me 2 amounts of money that I am unable to reconcile to any job so I am generously adding them together and calling it payment for the job. In reality it may be less that $190.00

Maybe I should go repo the tarp and see what happens. Lol

I still say $1000.00 is a bit on the cheap side but what do I know I'm just a "contractor".

Rule #1. Never do anything that hasn't been agreed upon in writing. When companies plant these maroons in row after row of cubicles, the last time you may ever speak to one specific individual is after they "promised" you a job, a bid, an approval, bla bla bla. "Just complete the order now and we'll send over the details later, thanks." Then you see your check and call and that clown is unknown to everyone.

It`s still not any of their business were you get your supplies, only that the job gets done. I have an old barn I keep doors,plywood,2x4`s ects. We all know how sucky board ups pay!!!!

Around two years ago when I was still doing work for FAS ,I sent in a bid to tarp a 20' x 20'(really about 10' x 15' always over estimate)for $325(this covered My employee, travel time there and back, materials, ect) Got a call from FAS coordinator saying my bid was too high! Just for laughs I asked what she though was reasonable. she said $125 and was getting it for that all the time! I laughed saying she needed to get one of them to do, I needed to send my guys out to do job that I would make money and lose money! A week later I was at property to winterize and could see the tarp flapping like a flag on the roof. wish I would have had that coordinator`s email so I could have sent her the photo of her $125 tarp job!
