OKLA. CITY – Heath Rogers says fly by night pavers pulled a fast one of him.
“It doesn’t feel good at all,” he said.
There were three men with a truck and equipment demanding cash.
Over the years we’ve warned you about pavers going door to door with a hard sell.
In the end the customer gets wildly overcharged for shoddy work.
The latest complaint involves pavers with ties to Texas and Missouri.
The name John Brady is listed on their business card, along with several out of state phone numbers and another number with a 405 area code.
“That is my phone number, but i don’t know John Brady,” says Carolyn Eisman from Moore.
She says for about a month now she’s been bombarded with calls from furious customers, most recently a lady from Ardmore.
“He’s taken their money and not done any of the work and they’re trying to get a hold of him to get him back out there,” Carolyn said. “I just apologize and say I’m sorry, but this is not his number.”
Carolyn has no idea why the pavers are using her number.
As for Heath and other customers, they’re back to square one.
“I’d still like to get some work done on it,” Heath said.
Our repeated phone calls to the paving crew were not returned.
The In Your Corner bottom line:
- Reputable asphalt contractors rarely sell their product door to door.
- Should these pavers approach you, ignore them and call your local authorities.
