Complaint: *** ********* (the owner) agreed to complete my televised construction project on July 23rd, 2015 that would start on the beginning of August. He took my deposit of $14,859.00. After not hearing from him I contacted him on July 27, 2015 inquiring who the general contractor on site would be and their contact information. He indicated it was between two candidates and he would call me back that day with their information. He failed to provide me the name, nor contact information of the general contractor for this time sensitive project. He also disregarded returning my telephone calls, emails and voicemail messages. It was not until August 6, 2015 that I heard from him again and he still had not selected a general contractor nor started building for this project. During our conversation on August 6, 2015, we made an oral agreement to end our contractual obligation to each other and that he would repay my deposit on August 7, 2015. On August 7, 2015 he would not return my phone calls all day. After finally reaching him, he stated he was working on it and was taking care of it. I have not been able to get reach him since that date. I have left numerous messages with his secretary, via email, and postal mail. As of August 11, 2015 he has not repaid the deposit of $14,859.

Desired Settlement: I am expecting a full refund of my deposit of $14,859.00.

This consumer came to my company asking us to bid a tiny home build project. We bid the project for them. After quoting the project...the consumer accepted our bid. We proceeded to put the project together in the time frame given to us by the producer. I had 7 employees working together on the preliminaries of this project because the time frame required. When I called the consumer to go over some of the build details and meet with my project manager...she told me "I think i'm not moving forward with the project. When I asked why, she said "no reason" I'm just not moving forward. She asked for her deposit to be returned. I told her it will be returned to her as soon as possible. I had my employee meet her with a company check for the deposit amount. She asked him to resign the check with his name. The bank would not accept the check to cash it. I then wrote another check to replace that check. I informed the consumer that the check is at my ******* office for pick up. I was told by my staff the check was picked up by Polk. Now I receive this complaint. I will investigate this allegation and make a further comment. Thanks you!

Consumer Response: (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
On August 12th I agreed to meet with an employee, sent by the owner, at my bank to receive a refund check. The employee arrived with a check, he wrote in the amount and signed with his name. When I attempted to deposit the check the bank teller told me the check was no good and that the owner would call me. I received a call from the owner a few hours later. He explained the bank did not accept the check because it had the employee's signature not the owner's, but he would figure out how to get me a valid check.

I did not hear back from the owner until August 17th. On that day he told me he was dropping off my check at the ******** center in a couple hours and would let me know when it was there. I never received a call confirming the check was at the ******** center. I followed up with the owner on the 18th to confirm the check was at the ******** center but received no reply.

I have not received, picked-up, or cashed any check in any amount from this company.
