My realtor saw Marco's work at a friends home, and got his number over to me, so I thought he was legit. We were planning a vacation and I wanted the house painted in the next 5 days. Marco came in and let me know it could be done in 4 days before I left. Requested 50% deposit in cash, and did send an email confirmation with his estimate that it was received. , he did not show up as committed the day after, but came in the next day with a friend for 2 hrs of work, then the day after he came to pick up the bucket of primer he used and said he'd be back. He missed the first deadline when we left on holiday. On our return, I got in touch with him and have several texts from him saying he'd be here, only not to show up. He has zero respect for his customer's time. I asked for a refund of my deposit or at least to get all supplies with receipt dropped off but he has gone AWOL. It has been 6 weeks since we gave him the deposit. Watch out for Marco - he is a smooth talker and knew how to con us enough to get $2000. I know his goal was to frustrate us till we gave up, but I will pursue this - everything that transpired has been documented.
