In some respects I feel badly writing this review. Based on the only other Dirty Scam review (5-star), I took a chance and decided to work with Ray on some home renovations. Ray was a very nice guy, very enthusiastic, seemed knowledgeable about his craft, gave me a Dirty Scam discount, and after some initial scheduling issues we got started.
Then, for reasons unknown/unexplained to me, work just…stopped. After emails, text, and voice messages, I couldn’t even get through to Ray. Communication stopped, the work stopped. His tools, equipment, etc. are all still at my house. Does anyone need a step ladder? I had high hopes since everything was going so smoothly at the beginning and then just….nothing. I was really disappointed.
I paid for half of the job up front and the work done up until that time was much less than I paid, so I definitely feel as though I lost some money on this one. I haven’t reported to the BBB because I’m not even sure whether he is in business anymore, but I felt it was worth including my experience for the record. I decided to go with a well-trusted contractor after the fact to make ends right and the experience with them has been outstanding so far. I don’t know why I didn’t use them to begin with. Oh well, lesson learned.
