resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Patrick Slingo is a thief and a crook. He was referred by another company that had just completed major on expected repairs on our home. We hired him to do some follow up major and minor house repairs, based on the recommendation in December 2010. We asked him to provide us with a copy of his business license, insurance and business card. He said he would bring the license and insurance information. He never did. He did not provide a business card either but some fake me out postcard that said it was before and after pictures, but were probably some pictures he got off the internet and was passing it off as his own work. He left us with the impression he had the business license and insurance and was having his so called “Executive
Assistant” get it for us. We signed them contract with this in mind (my mistake!!) and gave him $552 down and the key to the house to start working (another mistake).
After that he stopped calling, he did not respond to our calls, numerous voicemail
messages, emails or texts. When he would call back days later, he acted like he didn’t even get the call or message. In the beginning, he said the smaller jobs would be completed within that same week. Not only did he not finish the minor jobs within that week, the tiny bit of work he did on the house, probably less than $20 worth, was below substandard and was something a 5 year old could do. And this was only putting some caulking up on the wall and in a corner before painting. Weeks passed and he had only been to the house 2 times and did no real work. To top it all off we had to hire someone else to fix what he messed up!!!
Additionally, he kept on trying to add on other small jobs or act like he was throwing
something in for free to make it seem like he was indispensable or a good
guy. Like he was doing us a favor, but he is nothing but a fraud. I don’t even
believe he was qualified for or had the skill and expertise to do the job we
hired him to do, which was going to require him to put up a wall in the
We continued asking to get a copy of the business license and insurance and he kept making
excuses. He told his “executive assistant” and her baby had been sick and that’s why we had not gotten. One of many lies. That's when we decided to investigate on our own and discovered on the Virginia Corporation Commission website that his license expired in December 2009. So he had been lieing the whole time. Then he tried to say he recently found out that his business partner had the license and the partner quit partnership, but by then we already knew the truth.
Pat Slingo is a weasel. He worms his way into your home, takes your money and lies to you, takes advantage of people in bad situations that need help and takes advantage of kind,
sympathetic hearts. Don’t get taken!!! He stole our money and our fixture from the house. We cancelled the contract and asked for a refund since he did not do any work, we asked for the return of our fixture and the return of our keys. He said he was going
to return all of the above and never returned anything. He had this fake secretary emailing us saying the check was going out in the mail in 7-14 business days and the key would be
returned the following week. That was 8 months ago!!! We were forced to get the locks changed on the house.
