I was left with a 12,000K lien on my house when these idiots and scam artists didn't pay Gulf Eagle Supply. Quite frankly I think they are in cahoots with them and they all should be brought into a suit together. If all of us file a class action lawsuit against Bens Roofing, United Roofing and all their suppliers who know exactly what they are up to we would have greater strength. These people need to be held accountable for their actions. Please contact me.

By the way, if Greg is still operating under Michael Beni's license--he doesn't have one now! I took care of that.

In respect of what was written

AUTHOR: Ben''s Roofing - (United States of America)

I am writing on behalf of Bens Roofing,

There are some
discrepancies in what I read and would like to clarify what was written
as it is false and untrue. First please read these post that I research
for the public/ You can also Google the information by typing his name in the tool bar and his picture will come up so
there are no misunderstandings


BEACH, Fla. - A Palm Beach County roofer accused of bilking his
customers out of millions of dollars has been arrested. Gregory Haddox
was arrested Thursday morning. Haddox was
booked into the Palm Beach
County jail on seven separate charges of fraud. His arrest follows a
News Channel 5 investigation into Haddox and his company, United
Roofing.  Haddox is accused of not only writing bad checks but cashing
the insurance checks of his customers and never finishing the work

another one is:

Roofer Gregory Haddox followed Hurricane
Wilma to the tarp-covered homes of South Florida. Soon after, in 2006,
he was jailed because he had no license. Despite his guilty plea, Haddox
has continued to operate, leaving a trail of lawsuits and angry
homeowners and subcontractors in his wake. The people who hired United
Roofing Systems LLC say Haddox has failed to perform in a variety of
ways: He has taken their deposits and done no work. He has installed
shoddy roofs. He has failed to pay subcontractors, leaving homeowners
with the bill. At least 30 homeowners are now facing possible
foreclosure from unpaid contractors. Haddox is the sole officer and
owner of United Roofing Systems. He has no contractor's license. The
state license issued for United is held by Lonnie Brodock, owner of
Brodock Roofing Inc. Both companies list 1832 Wabasso Drive as their
mailing address. Haddox and Brodock did not return calls placed to United Roofing Systems.

A company run by a roofer facing a litany of lawsuits alleging shoddy work and failure to pay subcontractors wrote as many as 300 bad checks per month while doing business in Palm Beach County, authorities said. That revelation came after the manager of United Roofing Systems LLC, Gregory Haddox, was arrested Thursday on felony charges of writing worthless checks. The case, made by Palm Beach County Sheriff's Detective Darla Sauers, revolves around a deal between Haddox and Michael Cully, a suburban Boynton Beach homeowner whose roof
was damaged during Hurricane Wilma. Cully told investigators he hired United Roofing to repair the damage, agreeing to turn over Tower Hill Insurance Group checks totaling $46,884.93 to the company in exchange for work. When the actual cost of the work proved less than that amount, United Roofing agreed to return $11,631.98 to Cully and cut him a check, which bounced. The company told Cully they would work out a payment plan and wrote him another check, this time for $2,000, detectives said. That check bounced too. When Sauers scrutinized United Roofing's bank accounts, she found the company often operated in the red and passed between 200 and 300 bad checks per month, Sauers said in an affidavit for Haddox's arrest. He was taken  Thursday to the Palm Beach County Jail, where he was released hours later after posting $70,000 bond. Cully, who couldn't be reached for comment this afternoon, wasn't the only United Roofing customer to claim he was ripped off. People who hired the company say it took their deposits and did no work, that it installed shoddy
roofs and failed to pay subcontractors, sticking homeowners with the bill,
The Palm Beach Post reported last month. "There's a whole horrible chain of events that is lurking out there, including the people I represent who have been very badly damaged by all this," said attorney Larry Newman, who added that he's a victim of United Roofing and also represents six jilted Haddox customers. "This is just the tip of all the of people who have been burned." At least 30 homeowners now are facing possible foreclosure from unpaid contractors. United and Haddox have been sued in Palm Beach County Circuit Court by more than a dozen companies, including Dumpsters R Us in West Palm Beach and Latite Roofing in Pompano Beach, as well as individuals. Haddox advertised that his company had a staff of insurance claims specialists when it had none, according to the Florida Department of Financial Services. In February, the department issued a cease and desist order against United Roofing Systems and Haddox. Haddox, 37, came to South Florida from Ohio, where he had a string of judgments, foreclosures, bankruptcies, federal and state tax liens and other problems, according to court records. Those problems appear to be ongoing. In October, an Akron municipal court issued a warrant for his arrest on theft charges.

He was convicted and charge. Mr Haddox was using Ben's Roofing's name without our knowledge. He Stole thousands of dollars and was depositing the check made to Ben's Roofing in his account (Bank of America). These
articles or complaints are untrue (Slander and Defamation of Character). As you see clearly from the above that Mr Haddox is a fraud and has no credibility. Before adding adds and complaints, Please look at their criminal history prior to passing judgment. There has never been a charge or a lawsuit placed on our company. Ben` Roofing is a company that takes pride in what they do. We are the only company that follow the manufacturers specification and do not cut corners as they call it. Mike Beni stands 100% behind his company and has been a proud owner for several years and earned his respect through the years with hard, honest and quality work. We are terribly sorry to the people that Mr Haddox has Played as he has played us as well along with other companies. Mr Haddox has not been employed with us for several years and we have no intentions of hiring him back.
