wellington appliance repairs / took check didn't do work
Needed repairs to dishwasher. A family member recommended Eli Gonzalez of Wellington Appliance Repairs. He came to the house, determined needed parts, phoned them in and asked for check to purchase parts. We gave him a check for $311.70 and he set up a schedule to return the next day to install the parts when we would pay an additional $135 for installation. Never showed, repeated calls, rescheduled, never showed and stopped answering our calls. An internet search found many similar complaints and myriad phone numbers with different area codes. Checked with bank to learn he'd cashed our check as soon as he left the house. WE suspect he's run similar scams in other states also.
