Brothers Services / sales lies and illegal employees
I hired Brothers Services (111 Hanover Pike Hampstead, MD 21074) to do roofing repair with the understanding that there would be a supervisor who could speak English on site at all times. Of course, the salesman bent over backwards promising me, my disabled wife and our nephew Dan (who was present during the sale pitch) that this would be the case. Monday morning August 23rd the only one who showed up was some sorry Mexican who had no Green Card, smelled as though he had not taken a shower in days and could not speak one word of our native language. Would you want that thing working on your roof? Needless to say, I through the ### off my property in short order.
Then I called Brothers Services to ask why this provision in our agreement hadn’t been lived up to by them and why the salesman they sent to my home was such a blatant liar. The nasty female they have for a receptionist, obviously unable to answer any of my embarrassing questions and not like being put on the spot, promptly hung up in my hear. But I expected that response. This was no surprise from such a belligerent shrew.
I am a disabled American veteran who has been unemployed for 11 months with our house now going into foreclosure. Perhaps the reason I can’t find employment in my own home town is that companies such as Brothers Services would rather illegals who shouldn’t even be in this country rather than veterans who live in their own town. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? With the outright lies and stinking service this company provides and our economy in the dumper, is it any wonder the Japs are kicking our ###.
Help me put out the word about this joint so that other homeowners do not get screwed. I have contacted Experience Project, Angie’s List, Maryland Home Improvement Commission, The Better Business Bureau, The Mayor of Hampstead, Mr. Haven Shoemaker, Julia Gouge (the Carroll County Commissioner) who is up for re-election soon, along with The Federal Trade Commission and every other Maryland and Federal consumer complaint site, roofing company complaint site and home improvement complaint site Google could find.
I produce a web podcast with many subscribers. I will eat a time slot to broadcast my own Brothers Services commercial to enlighten people about this company. Seeing as there are few federal regulations with regards to internet podcasts, so long as there are no threats, slander, libel or bad language with nothing but the gospel truth about the promises made vs. the lack of service provided, there is nothing Brothers Services, the Maryland State cop that John Martindale, the owner of Brothers Services sent to my house this morning (August 26th) to try to intimidate me, or anyone else for that matter, can do about it. I will simply describe our poor experience with this company and let my many podcast subscribers make up their own minds. This truth shall be spread very quickly.
Tomorrow I will be contacting the INS and the Maryland Department of Labor to find out how these illegals got a drivers license in this state if they can not speak English, let alone get a job, when this Army veteran can’t find one himself.
Don’t let ANYONE from Brothers Services within 100 yards of your property. Don’t trust them any farther than you could drop kick an anvil. Their sales staff are liars who couldn’t care less about their customers and hire only smelly, illegal Mexicans.
