I placed an ad on Craigslist to have my tv mounted.  Alec Pava contacted me and said he was an expert.  I decided on him to do the job.  He came by and started to drill a large hole into the stud.  I asked him why he was drilling such a wide hole and he showed me the anchor he wanted to put into the stud.  Problem is the anchor is used only for sheetrock or drywall.  There is no space for the anchor to open in a stud !!!  I should have stopped him there but he said he was an expert.  He continued and finally said, "boss, we have a problem.  I will have to drill through the wall on the other side so the anchor can open and attach"  I thought, this guy is an idiot.  While he was here he received 3 phone calls for a job he had to be on in an hour.  So, he was rushed and mentioned it to me a few times.  He was about to take the easy way out and do a patchwork job at my expense.  So, he then drilled into the sheetrock with some cheap screw used for a picture frame and said he was ready to put the tv up.  I trusted him.  We put the tv up, which weighed about 50 pounds, and right away I noticed it pull out of the wall.  I mentioned it to Alec Pava and he said "no, no, this is solid and not going anywhere.  Don't pull down on it."  I didn't pull down on it, it came out by itself.  We agreed on $75 for the job.  I wrote him a check for $80, because he gave me some story that other banks charge him $5 to cash a check.  I said give me $5 cash and I will write it for $80.  He bolted out of there.  I went to look at the bracket and tv again as I was nervous it would not make it.  I looked closely and this dipshit, idiot Alec Pava only put 3 screws into the bracket !!!  Lovely, not only is he inept he is well, very inept.  Sure enough it was slowly pulling out of the wall.  So, I called back Mr. Expert, Alec Pava.  He said the tv is fine and don't pull on it.  Who in their right mind would pull on a 50 pound tv attached to a wall just for fun????  This idiot knew it wasn't stable.  So, a few minutes later it was getting worse and was going to come completely out of the wall and smash to the ground.  I had to hold it and guide it onto the ground as the 3 screws pulled out of the sheetrock.  I called Mr. Cut Corners Alec Pava back and he said he would be right over.  He also kept saying, "I told you not to pull on it" and "the tv was up when I left."  All implying that he is not at fault.  What a scumbag.  He never came back -- big surprise.  I called my bank to stop payment on the check.  Guess what?  It was already cashed by this shady, lying, no good, rat Alec Pava.  All this for $80??  Is it worth screwing somebody over?  This bum said he would come back up in 3 days and give me my money back after telling me how professional and honest he was.  He has many satisfied customers and would not stiif me on the money.  Ok, I took him at his word.  Then I call him in 2 days later to set the time to meet and get the money back.  This sneaky, unethical, rat has blocked my number on his phone so I can't reach him. Again, all for $80 and the fact that he can't accept responsibility for his failed workmanship. Stay away from this Alec Pava.  He will cut corners, lie and steal from you.
