Steve Godwin / Musharaf Ali Syed / fraudulent companies
I met Steve Godwin on Oct. 1 2010 through a friend of his Mr. Musharaf Ali Syed. They informed me that they were forming a construction company and wanted me to be a part of this company. After completing a work agreement I began working for said company on Oct. 7 2010. Mr. Godwin signed this work agreement as an agent and representative of this company. I worked for 3 weeks for this company as a project manager. Payday arrives and there was no pay just promises.
I was later to find out that this company was a front to commit fraud and scams. Mr. Syed denied having any involvement in the company even though the company bares his name. This so called company had no type of licenses or permits to conduct business in Durham and the state of NC. Mr. Godwin has 1 other complaint on this board for construction fraud. He has also received an F rating from the BBS in Richmond Va. The contractors board in Va. also revoked his license in Va. for fraud, incompetence and theft. Mr. Godwin has also used the credentials of other companies and prospective employees to make Syed Construction attractive to potential clients and to create resumes for himself.
As I continue to research this matter this seems to be a scam to make quick money and disappear before being caught.
