He literally took my deposit and never painted my unit. Police complaint already filed as I believe it was a clear theft and am waiting for the result, before suing in Small Claims Court. He sent me an invoice to paint 592sf unit for $700. Received $225 as a deposit. The next day calls me and says your unit is bigger than I thought and you need to pay $2100 and when I refused he says I'm keeping the deposit for my time.
If he's done this to anyone else, please email me so we can make a fraud case against him. email@example.com
