“We were called in to fix and finish what some ice heads started and f***ked up. They were building to a cheap quote for lockup stage. The lady even gave them the money though it wasn’t close to lock up just so they would leave without problems as they were getting aggressive when she started noticing and questioning what they were doing. Ended up costing her a hell of a lot more. These are some of the worst photos but there are a lot of other things they did. Anyway i thought you might enjoy the photos.” ???????? Thanks Mitch!

“I was working at this a ladies house when I was shown the deck and pergola a handy man had charged her cash for. Absolute death trap! She’s an elderly lady who lives there with her 40yr old disabled son and the top riser on the stairs was 305mm. he had 1 fix out nail holding down the decking and the roof was going to take flight any second. Let alone the H2 handrail that was just a top rail only with a 1.5m drop. I called out the scum bag on fb when I saw him advertising. He threatened find and deal with me and a mate of mine for calling him out as a scum bag.” ???????? Thanks Sean!

Top comment: “To all those saying the customer shouldn’t go for the cheapest price: an elderly lady with a disabled adult son is probably doing it tough and has no choice but to go for the lowest price. Older people also tend to be a bit too inclined to trust people too. Just don’t know how the crook who did this work can sleep at night. ????
