Terry Jarvis Premium Snow Plowing ServiceFraud - breach of contract

I hired Terry Jarvis in October 2011 to plow my driveway for the season between 11/1/11 and 5/1/12. We had our first significant snow fall on 1/13/12. My driveway has yet to be plowed. I've had no success contacting the company at the phone number where I initially arranged for the service. The current voicemail greeting is a female claiming to be his wife apologizing for the inconvenience, stating several trucks are broke down: one simply broke down, another has a brake problem and a third with "something else." The voicemail box has been full since 1/13/12 around 5pm. Mr Jarvis received full payment in Oct 2011. Services have yet to be rendered. This appears to be fraud.

    This lying sold me a piece of property in 2009 and come to find out she didn't even own it. I have a judgement against her for over 4000 dollars and still have not collected a penny. I have a surprise for her coming real soon stay tuned. BTW here is a good number for her [protected]

    I received a call from Brian Dissero just now. He also confirmed that Jarvis had pleaded guilty with court date on March 28. He suggested that we do let the judge know how we feel about this heartless fraud when we receive the letter from the DA. So please do take your time to write to the court/judge! We are hoping to get 50% (at least, if not 100%) of our money back hopefully before the sentencing in May or June.
    Thank you everyone for continue to follow-up and keep each other posted.

    Looks like a plea is on the table per ADA Dissaro. Jarvis is supposed to take a plea 3-28-12 to a felony. Maybe I will get to meet some of you.

    Does anyone have any update/news on our case against Terry Jarvis and her gangs?
    Has anyone heart anything from Brian Dassero? We should keep everyone posted on the court dates and stuff.
    Thank you.

    Out of this treachery we get a reputable company. Ryan's generosity was blessed with the donation of a snowplow. I have talked to him several times and he appears to be a good man. Though we were not on the list he came by and plowed the 4 properties the other morning. We have every intention of paying him. We appreciate his kindness.

    Kudos and blessings to BOSS plows. All you lucky people. I had hired a service just before I heard about this generous offer. I will want to get estimates from Boss and from my present guy next year so one of you who has my phone number please send me Boss' phone number for next year. I am very happy for you all and think this is so very good of them to do this for you. Makes me believe in the goodness of all people which we need to be reminded of after this mess with Terrible Terry!

    OK everyone, it's official! Boss Plows is donating a brand new plow to WNY Ground Control! I have found the truck I am going to put it on. We will now be able to dedicate a truck to this route. We should have everything put together before the next storm. If you have contacted us and were told that we are unable to take on any more clients, please feel free to give us a call again. I am currently putting the route together. I have a driver that is going to volunteer his time to help out with this route. Once again, WNY Ground Control is doing everything we can to help out as many as we can! A huge THANK YOU to BOSS PLOWS!

    UPDATE: I was contacted by a plow manufacturer today and they are putting together a small plow for me. I am going to look at a small truck tomorrow. Hopefully within a week, we have the small truck set up and ready to go so that we can take on more victims of these scammers.

    Found the answers to my questions. The Singer case is from 1995. In 1994 the boys were 6 to 9 years old and there was a marriage ceremony. Michelle legally changed her name.

    How interesting! There is a " Singer" living at 48 Cleveland Dr. That murder case is from 1994 so those boys may be adults now. Wonder if Robert or Jay Hennessy are children of Pam's or her brothers. In 1994 how would Michelle and Pam have the same last name? They could not have been married back then. How old is the Singer case?

    My understanding is that over 105 people have been caught in this nastiness. Yes, it is nice that we have this Complaint Board so we know what others are doing. I assume you have all called the Assistant District Attorney, Brian Dassero at 858-2559 if any of you have not please call first thing Monday morning. 9 AM...The more people they have the better for the case.

    If it wasn't for this blog, I would not have known that other people were scammed by Jarvis and yes, it does help to vent! I also want to thank everyone for all of the important information given! It's hard to imagine how a person could rip people off and leave them stranded and trapped... not even bothering to answer calls. Very creepy.

    District Attorney's Office and the Attorney General's Office are both working on this. Seems better to me than a private lawyer would do. One of these offices covers the "criminal" case and the other one covers the "civil" case. Let them, do their work. keep a positive mind about this and justice will be done and perhaps some of our money will be returned to each of us. Last year there was a snow plow scam which took in 300 people. Attorney Generals Office sued and each person got back about $35 Al Vaughters from CH 4 Action told me this. Keep the faith people!

    I totally agree with c.i. jones... we are much smarter than those criminals especially if we all work together.
    I wonder(and challenge) if there is any good/smart lawyer or reporter will take on this case and nail every single person who was involved with this organized crime?! I know there are many victims like us and it has been on the news/new papers.
    I thank you all for being persistent (like me) not just getting our money back; but also making sure that the same tragedy will not happen to others. Image you can't leave your house to go to get your medication, to see your doctor, to go to work or to get food/grocery because of those heartless crooks who planned the whole scam.
    Thank you for sharing all the useful and important information. Keep up the good work, everyone!

    Please everyone contact Brian Dassero in the DA's office. I spoke to him with a thought I had, but I feel they are the experts and can handle this. I have every confidence that the AG's office as well as the DA's office will do everything possible to nail all of them. If they are monitoring this site, so what. They already know they are criminals, liars, cheats, jailbirds, and lowlifes. Only despicable human beings would defraud the elderly and disabled. This board is informational and a way for us to vent. The real strategy is behind closed doors and would never be posted here. Let us keep in touch especially for court dates. I decided to not call them anymore because it is a waste of time. I also do not like being called a ###. I am going to let the police and courts handle this matter.
    What nerve we have in wanting our money back. I do not care if Jarvis has to collect soda bottles, muck out horse stalls, or a simple honest day of work. I want my money back.

    I have spoke to BRIAN DASSERO yesterday. He was very helpful.
    I was also threatened by Terry Jarvis today (1/28) at 10:30 am when I called and asked for the refund that was supposed to be done by today as she promised on the phone. She said "You will get your refund. How about I bring bunch of friends over to your house and handle that? How is that?"
    I told them that we will let the police handle that.
    They are truly low life criminals who is taking advantage of our system and good innocent people. We should NOT let any of them get away with it. They have money to pay the bails in four courts (Amherst, Kenmore, Tonawanda, Cheektowaga), yet they do not have any interest in paying us back?!
    What if anyone has a slip & fall? Can we hold them responsible?

    Please follow up with the info from Doris. Rec'd a letter from the AG's office with the same info. If you filed with the AG's ofc they will forward your name to the DA's ofc unless you tell them not to. So glad to read today that one of the victims was smart enough to get a license plate. I was also surprised Buffalo PD has a copy of the cancelled checks. I will definitely attend court hearings but undecided about going to the home. Get 50 or 60 people outside chanting: SHOW ME THE MONEY! Might be interesting.

    I called their number last night around 8:15 PM and I believe their son picked up the phone and he said "Please call during our regular hours. Thank you." then hung up. His changed of tone made me believe that they are monitoring this site and reading what we are sharing here.
    I called again this morning and this afternoon and I was told by the woman that they will refund my money by tomorrow or the next day.
    If that does not happen, I am planning on going to their house with some friends and we are not leaving until we get our money back.
    I will also make sure that I will be showing up at every court appearing and pleading the judge to lock the whole family away for a very long time!

    Anyone who has not yet filed a police report, or contacted him, should follow the advice of Doris and contact:

    A.D.A. BRIAN DASSERO
    858-2559

    He is the one handling the case for all of Erie County. The more victims he has, the stronger the case.

    Put it in writing you want a refund and send it priority mail. They will not have to sign for it but the post ofc will advise you that it was delivered. It cost $5. and change for each letter. I sent it to 54 Cleveland and 1470 Kensington. Should be there tomorrow. Since Pam is now saying she is talking to us from ICU, do you think they are going to come into court and state you requested a refund over the phone? Do they really think we are that stupid? Their comments are spoken so convincingly it is as if they believe it. There is a medical term for that.

    Finished my letter and will be going to the post office soon. In the lower left corner of the contract there is a statement " all agreements contingent upon strikes, accidents, or delays beyond our control". Probably why we are just hearing about an accident. Wonder if it is real or staged? How convenient. The irony is she never intended to plow our properties, she kept our money, and now we are stating refund our money and end the contract. Exactly what they want. I do not want to be anywhere near them but I have every intention of seeing them brought to justice.

    I just called Terry Jarvis. At first the woman on the phone identified herself as "Terry", and then later said " I am Terry's wife, and I am in the ICU". I aske her about her son and why his name appeared on my check and she hung up! I could hear music in the backround, this woman is full of crap! I will keep calling this scam artist until the whole family pays for the people they have hurt!

    The son is probably behind this. He appeared to be doing all of the talking in court. If we cannot get our money back they should have to serve time in jail. Everyone involved in this scheme should not be left on the streets to bilk other people. They live in nice homes with nice vehicles and I do not have the impression any of them actually WORK. I am pi...ed!

    Is Today's News a show? I am trying to find it on the computer. I will call Det. Cunningham as well but is he in at 9 am? I have been trying to find out why Buffalo PD would not take our complaints. I wonder if it is the volume of complaints and size of the city. The bulk of the victims are in Buffalo. Thanks for the info!

    we know someone at the attorney generals office, they said we will most likely not get any $ back which sucks. Her son prob has all the $ or whoever he is because he deposited one of our checks not terry. Nothing prob in her name except the name on top of the contract.

    ALERT!! Remember how I posted that I visited 2 different city Police precincts and they refused to help? Well in TODAY'S News there is a place to call to report...Detective Robert Cunningham at 689-1343 I plan to call him this morning at 9Am and will post again after I talk to him.
    I also wrote a letter to the editor of Buff News re: the Buffalo Police precincts... Now I am waiting to see if they print it.

    We need to put it in writing that we want a refund which I have been reluctant to do because of the address. We can use return receipt (I believe it does not have to be signed for) or whatever will show that it has been delivered to 1470 Kensington Ave. Probably send it to 54 Cleveland Dr as well. We need to get this done this week because the end of January marks the half-way point of the contract. I am going to look into locating the other criminals but I do not want to post on the board what I am doing. I know how to get in touch with Doris and Dr. Rosenberg, the victims on my street, and a couple I ran into looking for the criminals. I believe the AG's office is going after the case but it does not hurt to give them as much info as we can, as long as we do not get in their way. STEAL my money, LIE over the phone that you plowed my drive, AND CALL me a ###. I believe that we are smarter than they are.

    I say we give them a deadline to pay the money back, and if they don't WE ALL GO TO HER HOUSE together and demand the full refund.
    It's a joke that they are using our money to pay the bail; yet they have no intention of paying us back. The judge should make them return all the money before they are allowed to pay the bail.
    Also, I think we should record everything when talking to them on the phone. If I have to tak a day off to go to court, they are gonna have to pay for it.
