A&T Computers Adam Siggs / Work not completed, shoddy work, defective equipment sold
I had positive dealings with Adam Siggs in the past year for software I bought from him. He owed me a credit on software that I couldn't used and returned the disc.
I wanted my very small office networked - really just 2 computers hooked to another one for storage and file share and the printers and router hooked up as well. A mini network.
He promised to deliver a refurbished computer with a 120 gigs of memory, he delivered on with only 40 gigs. He charged for 16 hours of labor but spent 4 at our office. He did not credit me for the $100.00 he owed me. He charged for installation of software that we owned that should have been covered in the labor. There were other upcharges that made the bill to do the work I described for over $1300.00 dollars. A lot for a refurbished computer with a 40 gig hard drive, and 4 hours of labor.
Unfortunately my office manger did not follow my instructions, did not get a W-9 and call me with the charges, but instead released full payment.
I could not stop payment because he took the check immediately to the Money Tree. You can't stop payment on a check that is cashed with them in the State of Washington and not get sued.
He had missed appointments several times of the last weeks in starting the job.
He was supposed to come back and finish everything up on 5/19/08 at 10:30 and at least refund my $100.00 credit. We had a set appointment at 10:30. At 11:10 when he had not showed up I called upset and told him if he didn't finish the job that week that I would take him to small claims court. I had lost all trust in him.
He doesn't call and let you know - he just doesn't show up.
He told me that my attitude was not proper and that I should take him to court.
I am in the steps of litigating.
The owner of this business has terrible business practices and did not deliver or keep his word with me.
I gave him a deposit, and trusted him and the rest of the deal was a tar pit. My bad luck my office manager picked a day to space out.
Don't make the mistake of trusting or doing business with Adam Siggs.
