Jacklin S. Safie owner of Taman Anin Property Preservation Services is a fraud. She comes across as a sweet hard working woman who always has a rush a job because someone did not complete an assignment correctly. She called us saying she would pay $100 just to take some photos. We did other work for her, lawn cuts, lock changes and a few bids. Everything is a rush. When it came to payment, we never saw it but we always had communication with her. She was always blaming someone else for not getting paid.
We contacted a supplier of hers, Diamond Services. We were informed that our completions were late and payment was cut. We proved out assignments were not late. As it turned out, Ms. Jacklin, who was claimed she was always up late doing invoices and completions, turned in the results late. Since we are a 4th party and she is a 3rd party, it is up to her to submit the completed assignments to her supplier. When we questioned Jacklin about this, she stated that was not true and she did everything right.
We were given an assignment for yard work at a property she gave us. There was another contractor doing what we thought was a lock change. He told us that Jacklin told he was going be paid $60.00 to install a lock on various properties. After a month of working for her, he was told that he was only going to be paid $12.50 for a 2 locks and a lock box. Jackie told him that the company she was getting the work from was ripping her off. He told her to pay him the $12.50 but he would no longer provide locks and a lock for $12.50. When he never got paid from Jacklin, he removes the locks and lock box on properties he did work on and did not care if the property was left unsecured. He further told us about other contractors who Jacklin had running around all over the state of Florida claiming everything was a rush but she pay good money for their efforts.
As it turns out, there are several contractors who felt sorry for Jacklin and did work for her only NOT to be paid. When we heard that there was a contractor who was owed $15, 000.00, we didn’t fell that bad about our $1, 000.00.
When we checked into her company, which we should have done from the beginning, we found that her business was formed in August 2005 and became inactive in September 2007 for not filing an annual report. She loved talking on the phone while we were trying to work.
This business has become very competitive with people getting into this business and under cutting us. The only thing we have in this business is our word and the few that do good work. When you come across someone, like Jacklin, who claims to know the business, she has no clue. All she does is sit at home giving out assignments. They we she would talk on how busy she was, staying up late hours, we thought she was a great source. But as it turns out, she is not a good source. She is a 3rd or 4th party and by the time money gets to her, it is chump change. She had no clue about discounts or pricing.
We called one of the banks that owned a property. They advised us to call another company, Five brothers. Five brothers told us they did know Jacklin or her company. They gave us the number of Diamond Home Services. They would not discuss anything us and advised us to talk to Jacklin. When we said we were going to file lien on the property, they said we could not do that because it was in violation of the agreement we had. WE HAD NO AGREEMENT! We called back Five Brothers and advised them we were going to file a lien. They took all out information and called us back. We need to complete some paper work but they are going to pay us directly.
We do not wish harm to anyone, but it is people like Jacklin who make good workers look bad. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY.
