I should have known that someone would have taken exception to my description of the people that took advantage of me rather than take note of the deceptive practices of those people for future reference and their own protection. I have one individual's name, and the name of the contractor under whose license he was ripping people off with.
So there you have it. i have since learned that the individual that ripped me off goes by several different personal and company names making it rather difficult to point a finger at any individual, hence my having to resort to the nationality as the best descriptor.
You should also know that several of our local hardware, lumber, and rental stores also have a blanket "tongan" policy due to theft of services and equipment.
I did check with the state contractors licensing board, and the license he gave me for "Best Qualifying Contractor" license #906118 was legitimate. So i thought I was getting a licensed contractor, and who of any of you does not want to get the best deal for the least amount? Not one of you tries to get something for less, ever?
so, my sincerest apologies to Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, and the Pleasanton Weekly, for posting a topic that became more divisive than informative. it was my wish to only warn my neighbors to keep it from happening to them.
unlike the staceys and franks of the world who have never made even the slightest mistake in their entire lives and are therefore entiltled to be rude and sarcastic, i will admit that i have made a few and i wanted others to learn from this mistake.
