Complaint Detail(s)

7/21/2016 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I hired this business in April of 2015 to remove a hot tub and install a new hot tub. The one he was supposed to install was broken, so he had to get another one. At that point, he never came back so I do not have a hot tub that I paid $1,800 for.

Desired Settlement: I would like my money back.

1/25/2016 Delivery Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I believe there was an ad in the paper about a refurbished hot tub. I contacted them originally by phone on on December 29th, 2014. I paid them with a check of $1800 which was endorsed by *** on 12-30-2014. The last time I spoke with him was on December 1, 2015 and he keeps saying he will meet me somewhere and says he is on his way but never shows up. I mentioned to him that I had filed with the state and the BBB and he hung up. The next day I called him again and he once again promised me my refund.

Desired Settlement: I want my money refunded to me.

10/15/2015 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: We bought a hot tub from *** and his wife 3 weeks ago. He asked that we pay him in full and he would deliver it and hook it up to make sure everything worked the way that it should. He never delivered the hot tub. After countless attempts of calling him, he finally answered his phone 3 days later. After going back and forth, we both agreed on a cash refund. He asked that we come to his warehouse at 9 am on Monday for the refund. I go and he showed up at 10 completely drunk. He tried talking me out of a refund but I wouldn't budge. He said he couldn't do a refund and told me to try again the next day. I had to work the next day so needless to say I wasn't going to play his games and come back everyday only for him to tell me he had already spent the 1600 we gave him the week before. He made 2 other promises to us to get our money back and then never showed up or answered our calls. We still have no money and no hot tub. The cops in *********** know this guy as a complete scammer. He has done this same thing to multiple people. When I researched his name, I realized that he has had a long history of scamming people. The *** ***** **** ******** even wrote an article about him under his previous business names. I want to caution everyone. Never do business with ***** ********/*** ******** or his wife or Two Guys and a Spa Dolly.

Desired Settlement: Cash Refund in the amount of $1600.

Complaint: Hot Tub Addict aka ***** and **** ******** agreed to deliver a recycled Hot Tub, the the ******** ***** for a price of 2600 dollars. The price was inclusive of delivery, installation and removal /disposal of my existing tub. I paid the full amount to Hot Tub Addict in the first week of May 2013. To date (October 2013) they have missed multiple delivery dates. Each time there is a new reason why they could not delivery. Its fall when most people are going to be using their hot tubs and I still haven't received a call back from the last time I talked to them on a new delivery date. Product_Or_Service: Hot tub

Desired Settlement: Refund or deliver as per original contract on a date that will not change yet again.

Additional Notes

Complaint: We purchased a hot tub on 8/10/13 for 2000.00, it has never been delivered. We purchased a hot springs grandee for 2000.00 on 8/10/13, it has never been delivered. We have heard excuse after excuse why they haven't brought it to us. We requested our money back, but now none of the employees will answer our calls, or call us back. We reported them to the *********** police department on 8/30/13.

Desired Settlement: We just want our money back. $2000.00, plus they had us fill our water tank last Saturday to fill the tub they never brought. We had to empty the tank when they never came and it fell out of the truck and broke. It was a 500.00 dollar tank. so the total would be 2500.00.
