UPDATE: Since this story hit the net, we have heard about numerous additional rip-offs all over Florida. The complaints involve taking money and not doing work! Or in some cases, stealing and in one case, using a customer’s credit card to go gambling! READ THIS STORY AND BEWARE! HE IS A DUDE THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED!
T.G.F.I. = THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET!
There was a time when a guy like this could move from one state to another and fleece a whole new flock! BUT WITH THE INTERNET THERE IS NO HIDING!
Short story: Michael Leonarczyk, under the name of Keystones Fence and Deck, swindled two homeowners out of around four grand. He took the money up front with the promise of removing and replacing an old border fence. He only removed part of the old fence then took off, never to be seen by them again!
When we called the guy, he admitted he did not complete the job and said he simply doesn’t care what we say about him or what people think about him. And why should he care? He’s already established a track record of swindling.
Check out this link from MugShots.com to find details of his past offenses. Here’s a synopsis of some charges taken from the Mugshots website:
ATTENTION: I strongly recommend avoiding this scammer. He could also be known as:
- Michael James Leonarczyk
- Mike Leonarczyk
- James Leonarczyk
- Jim Leonarczyk
- Mike Jim
- Mike James
You may also see this phone number, (720) 692-9695 or this email, firstname.lastname@example.org. He is likely to take your money and do little or no work.
These guys are the most risky when it comes to hiring because he openly says he DOES NOT CARE what people say about him.
