Additional Notes

Complaint: We hired ***** ********** to build a pool and a fence and gave him $7800 and he has disappeared!

Desired Settlement: I just want my money back and to make sure he does not cheat anybody else!

Business Response: I have a contact that is one month out of the 20 days out of cancellation.  The permit did take a lot longer then I thought It would.

Some how **** ******* was able to talk to the customer (********* Pools).

I am ready to dig the pool at anytime. All I need to do is resubmit the permit that was already to go!!!!

If they want to believe  **** ******* that has the worst customer record in our industry that's fine.

I have a binding contract and I'm ready to make their backyard dreams come true


Consumer Response: Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because:  This business is lying.  He never received a permit from The City of Lakeway.  You can Check with the City!  I hired an Attorney and found out this individual has a criminal record.  He stole $7800.00 from me!


**** ******

Business Response: I may have a past. That is true. That will not stop me from building a beautiful Pool, and to ability to fill my contract.
The permit was at the building department being processed. 

She was past the point to cancel. 

I'm still ready to fulfill my contract. 

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
