Gastonia Landscaping / It is a scam, Scott Pruitt takes your monies and never provides services.
This company is not legal. Scott Pruitt has only a landscaping license which states in NC that jobs must be under 30, 000. He does above that. He takes monies upfront and never completes jobs. He has several lawsuits on him now. He agreed to do a sunroom/deck for us. Took 28, 000 of ours and project is not even near complete. Abandoned the project before Christmas. He then contacts via phone, and says he does not have the monies to place order for our windows, lumber and rest of materials and to pay his help. But if I would pay for it, he would release his 2 employees to complete the job, but I would have to pay them. So, here we are, $ 28, 875.00 that he has had in his pocket of my money since Sept. 17, 2015 and I'm in a mess. Scott Pruett is a con-man living in Gastonia, NC at 202 West 5th Avenue, Gastonia NC: mobile phone is: [protected] and [protected]. He had a sales manager: Ryan that got the business from us, he takes monies also - he then departs from Scott Pruett. Scott Pruett claims to have a warehouse where he stores his products. Also, untruth. He has not equipment. As of this Dec. 2015, he purchased 3 vehicles, paid cash, (friend of his told us). So, that explains the monies he took from all and disappears. These vehicles were close to $200, 000 he spent. Mr. Pruett also had troubles with finances back in 2007. His partner at that time, has recently committed suicide. This is a huge scam going on in Gastonia, NC with Scott Pruett leading. He has moved locations and changed names of businesses numerous times. His attorney and engineer that passes these projects are all involved. Therefore, he has ring leaders involved. BEWARE!!!
