[Resolved] Ancient Mariner Group of Companies / payment of contractors
Ken Meiklejohn, is President and CEO of the Ancient Mariner Group of Companies which include Ancient Mariner Sign Services, Ancient Mariner Exteriors, Ancient Mariner Retail Stores, Ancient Mariner Industries, Spectacular Sign Services, Spectacular Acquisitions. The Ancient Mariner Group of companies is a work of fiction that Ken Meiklejohn created in his own mind. He bought a failing awning company many years ago and did not do his homework. He ended up with a huge mess because he did not do any due diligence on the company or the owner. The Canada Revenue Agency is owed a large amount of money that he will never be able to pay because the companies MAKE NO MONEY. In addition, he does not pay his contractors. He will screw contractors out of small amounts of money because on top of being incompetent, he is dishonest. If you are a contractor for this guy, get your money up front, he will refuse to pay, not answer calls and not make any arrangements for payment. My fault entirely for trusting this guy. I am posting here so that other people won't end up in the same situation.
Ancient Mariner's customer care service did everything in their power to resolve this complaint. All attempts to contact the client have failed. Therefore, this complaint has been annulled and must not be considered where company image and it's services are concerned.
