That is a false reports from Mike Prisco from Saratoga Piano who have scam me when I bought a Piano that I never received. Then I post a ript off report and took legal action. From that time Mr Mike Prisco from Saratoga Piano, alias and associates are posting false report about me and my business on internet.
Criminal investigation and legal actions are pending.

    I agree with this person reporting their story and their dealing with Mike Prisco and his associate con man. An associate of his operates "Two cool piano movers" and markets himself as a works technician. I have initiated follow up discussions on a rebuild project with this pair only to hear nothing but double speak and absolute failure on their part to produce any evidence of work performed, other than their demands for more money Skilled professionals should be able to show evidence of their work. Skilled professionals value open and transparent dialogue with their customers. Skilled professionals in the restoration business, certainly understand that their business is based upon trust. Prisco is the polar opposite of professional. I have heard enough from this guy. Processing and action through the legal system is too good for him, He needs two shots point blank to the head.

    If you think this is extreme, wait till you are in a transaction with him that goes bad, and see how you feel after a few phone calls and lack of any follow up actions to resolve the issue.

    I have one of Priscos pianos... it is an amazing instrument... But it was possibly the worst experience trying to get him to finish it and into my home! It was supposed to be a 6 week process, it took 6 months.

    Shame on you for making up lies and slander, you even include his wife which is just wicked. The above posts are some of numerous posts meant as a vendetta and revenge. Please read the post and connect the dots of their game. Anyone who would even say that someone should be shot in the head as the above post states, exposes the malevolent intentions. Mike has been trained by the best in the industry and there is no piano he cannot bring back life incredible. Mike does'nt claim to be a master piano rebuilder, they are the facts!! He is a master piano rebuilder and slander and defamation does not and will not change that. They are some people who relish in being wicked, God knows who they are!
    Mike has rebuilt pianos for concert pianist, concert halls and alike who note his work to be considered "superlative and exceptional." Mikes portfolio of his craftsmanship speak for itself!
    If you have a real issue than you should speak to Mike or utilize the court system instead of spending your time filling your heart with malicious, wicked lies, blogging and ranting over and over again, making up different fake names and situations as revenge! We are sure that as long as people are allowed to be on the internet cyberbulling, defaming and maligning you will continue. That is your waste of life.
