Waited over 3 months sept 2017-jan 2018 for Josh Bolkema to put automatic gate openers on 2 drive-way gates, that he offered & agreed to install. Spent 2 afternoons going over installation process, he never did the work. He stated he purchased the gate openers but no work was ever done. Josh Operated using falsified business addresses and misled public to believe he was licensed when he was not. Used 2 seperate R1 residential business addresses when he was not legally authorized. Had employees working for, recruiting and advertising for his business when it was not legit. He may have charged customers disposal fees for job debri but possibly dumped on his property &/or used his residential trash can to dispose of it. Photos & surveillance video taken. Signed affidavit by Iowa Workforce Development Des Moines IA November 2018 stating Joshua Bolkema nor his company Silver Creek Construction were authorized nor licensed in the state of Iowa when signed.
The owner of Silver creek construction has threatened a lawsuit if I dont remove, so please remove text and photo. Thank you.
I was referred to Jim Fletcher by his cousin Scott Lane. A person I had met a few years ago. I started in June of 2007. The first several checks were on time. After that the checks were some times late by 2 or 3 days (not unheard of). Soon I began to get bounced checks. He would pay off the balance and fees, so it sounded good, but not the money owed to me. He did this about six times. He fell behind six weeks of pay. After this he said that the other crew was full and he would get me paid at the end of the month. I called repeatedly to get paid and he alway had a different story. After a month of calling I realized he had no plans to pay me at all. I have never been paid to this date.
Jim Fletcher and Scott Lane hire people out of the half way houses. These people most of the time have no ride to work, and sometimes have a record. This makes them easy targets to be stiffed there pay. I know five other people that they have done this to.
