Do not use Dlb Flooring He will bait and switch you on flooring materals if he even sends an installer at all. If he does send an installer it might be Mark Langlois who also can be found here on rip off report for helping Danny rip people off. Google any one of thier names or dlb flooring sorce and you will find a ton of bad reviews. I cant believe this guy can get away with ripping off so many people and not be held accountable for his actions, he should be in jail.

Of course you cant keep arguing with me you cant win any arguments because the fact is you are doing all these things that you are accused of.

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)



If I was you I would hide. Because it looks like you will be in jail soon especially if this keeps up. Eventually your form of fraud moves away from civil and becomes criminal. You are there. I believe enough evidence now exists for someone to make a criminal case against you.



Of course you cant keep arguing with me you cant win any arguments because the fact is you are doing all these things that you are accused of. You can claim you took care of them, them being some of your ripped off costumers.



But why did it happen? Why did you try to rip so many people off?



It only took a year and the threat of bad publicity and court for you to start paying people back. It doesnt matter anyway. Even if in your mind paying people back makes it all better it does not mean that all parties involved are happy about what happened. They can complain about you whenever and however they want as a big fat warning to other consumers DO NOT USE DLB FLOORING THE OWNER DANIEL LEE BATTERBEE WILL RIP YOU OFF.



You think I am hiding?  No I am just using common sense also the rip off report tells you to be anonymous for just this purpose. The fact is it doesnt matter who I am. You shouldnt have baited and switched so many people and offended so many others. You are breaking the law and you obviously are a very bad business man. I have one last series of posts planed for you. Hopefully in the next few days I will have time to put it together. After that I dont think there will be much more I will do but check in on you with a Google search from time to time. But if I find more bad things about you I will post them here so you cant get rid of them like you did on the review sight merchant circle. Now dont you wish you wouldnt have done that?  You made it so only the good reviews you left for yourself could be seen.



If you bring them back, make it so all the merchantcircle reviews for you can be seen I will stop posting about you on the rip off report. Including my last series of posts planed for you. Even I think what I have in mind might be too much. But on the bright side everyone will know about you.



I never even got to pick your website apart before you stopped paying for hosting, with all of its stolen off the net pictures of other companies work. Like that cheese ball video you have. Did you know the people that made that for you used some of the same pictures from another video for one of their other flooring clients? You may think thats trivial but it says a lot for what kind of business you have. It looks mediocre from the outside but once you take a closer look it looks really bad.



Before you go lets take a look at this Craigslist ad with your bait and switch history in mind. To me and others it reads more like



 



**Mother's Day Flooring Sale*** (Orlando-Winter park)



 



Get your mother new flooring from me, because its much easier for me to take advantage of the elderly. They dont notice the different materials being used.

There is plenty of evidence online for the consumers credit card company to take the side of the consumer and pursue. But you already know this proof of that can be read here at http://www.dexknows.com/business_profiles/dlb_flooring_source-b235200 when you baited and switched them a year ago. You pretended your machine was out of order you lied knowing they would charge you back and you would be held responsible with the consumers credit card company. Or Suntrust stopped allowing you to use their services because of your past history. It doesnt matter you are lying so much whatever you say cant be believed.



http://images.dexknows.com/images/stars1.gifRipped-Off by macliss - 06/22/2009
Do not do business with this guy! He truly is a hack. We had been shopping around for Armstrong floors and slick DLB came up with an out of this world price. We supposedly only had a week to take advantage of this great offer from Armstrong. He showed us supposed dealer prices from other vendors and explained how everyone was ripping customers off. We had to write a check, since his Credit Card machine was conveniently out of service (Suntrust somehow could never get anyone to come out and look at it). He sold us fake Armstrong floors and lied to my face three different times when I asked him if they truly were Armstrong brand (they came in unmarked boxes). Now we're stuck with $5k worth of junk, with no chargeback rights from Visa. It doesn't make sense to get an attorney at this point since it wouldn't be cost-efficient. He is a dirty SOB and will get what's coming to him. Stay away from DLB Flooring and Danny Batterbee.

Some more great examples of you baiting and switching people You are nothing but a lying crook.

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)



This is another great example of you baiting and switching someone. Also she is the reason I started my campaign about you. At first she didnt even realize what you were doing was bait and switch. She does now.



You promise an $85 discount, you owed her hundreds of dollars back than you write her a $50 rubber check on a closed account!!!  If I ever did half the fraudulent acts you do I would be in jail. I guess the lesson here is if you want to be a crook, do it under a business name even Casey Anthony is in jail for something like that. I guess she should have opened a flooring shop because apparently you can get away with anything than.



 



 DLB Issues NSF Corporate Check on Closed account by madgal - 01/08/2009



 



The first tile ordered and the second tile ordered were the wrong tiles, but had second delivery installed as was tired of the 2-3 weeks wait at the Holidays.



 



Mr. Batterbee informed me that I had an $85 refund due for the wrong tile and inconvenience, etc. Almost a month later, after numerous excuses why the check was never available, on 12/27/08, a check for $50 was issued on the DLB account at SunTrust Bank, which turned out to be NSF on a closed account. Mr. B. vigorously denied he had issued a 'rubber check', but nonetheless, has not made good on it to date, 1/8/09.



 



Please note that the phone number above has been disconnected; Mr. B. uses a cell phone now.



 



 Care should be taken when dealing with him.



 



Now this one Danny, another recent bait and switch exposed. I called it when I said you would want to do another Craigslist hustle dont do it. Thats what I meant by another Craigslist hustle. And dont do it means you shouldnt do it because of course you are going to get caught again. It makes me wonder how many people dont say or do anything? It must be enough to make you keep doing it over and over.



You are a very bad man with a problem. I hope you dont believe your lies. You are caught. Its just a matter of time.



Ronald cant spell your name but we get the jest. Christian couldnt spell it either.



You state



He also has been taken care of a long time ago!!!  I gave him his refund back..  Plus he got one hell of a deal on his flooring and he will tell you that!!!!



No Danny what he told me was exactly what I posted in the last post, word for word. He didnt mention anything about a great deal.



 



If you actually did give Christian his refund it took it going public on craigslist and the rip off report for it to happen. Good is coming out of this its not a waste of time. Or more than likely the reason for a refund would have been that the credit card company stepped in and forced the refund to happen. The credit card companies will ask for any other proof of past fraud or similar issues reported from other consumers. You have attempted to clean up some other review sights but there is plenty of evidence online for the consumers credit card company to take the side of the consumer and pursue.



This other great example of you getting caught bait and switching Ronald and other bad reviews can be found on

DO NOT BUY FROM DLB FLOORING



We purchased 1000 Square Feet of Robbins 1st Quality wood Flooring from DLB flooring. We were delivered 1000 square feet of Timberlake UNWARRANTED wood flloring which was obviosly factory seconds (maybe factory 3rd quality) wood flooring. Danny Battersby told us that factory made a mistake and he would fix the problem. We returned the wood to Mr. Battersby with the promise of receiving a full refund. It is now 2 months later and still no refund. We have contacted the police. The detective told us that this is not something the state attorney wants them to pursue but called Mr. Battersby anyway. Mr. Battersby told the Detective that this was a mistake and he would make sure the refund was processed. That was 1 month ago. DANNY BATTERSBY IS A CROOK. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM DLB FLOORING.

This guy is dishonset and should be arrested.

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)



Christian VonBargen reppoc74@yahoo.com



I agree with all of these postings. This guy is dishonset and should be arrested.  Here is what I wrote to my credit card company when dealing with a refund Danny Batterbee told me he would give me:

On Friday, May 15th, 2009, I bought 1498.72 square feet of Park Avenue 12mm laminate flooring, underlayment and coordinating trim from DLB Flooring located at 3118 Corrine Drive Orlando, FL 32802.  I paid $5342.11 with my At & t Universal Mastercard.  After this purchase I decided to upgrade the underlayment for the flooring.  On Monday, May 18th, 2009 I authorized another charge of $628.25 for the upgrade.  When I received the flooring, underlayment and trim I realized that some of the trim pieces were incorrect.  The owner of DLB Flooring, Danny Betterbee, told me that he was going to correct the order.  I waited and eventually decided to return the trim pieces to him.  On Thursday, June 18th, 2009 I returned the trim pieces to DLB Flooring for a refund of $175.00 which posted two days later on June 20th, 2009.  On this same day I mentioned to Danny Betterbee that I had 7 extra unopened boxes of flooring left over after installation.  He told me that I
 could return the 7 boxes to DLB Flooring for a full refund of $356.93.  I returned the 7 boxes of flooring to DLB Flooring on Monday, June 22nd, 2009.  Danny Betterbee gave me a handwritten credit slip for $356.93 and told me that Armstrong would mail me a check for the refund.  After waiting for at least 1-2 months I called Armstrong to see where my refund check was.  They informed me that they do not mail refunds to customers.  When I contacted Danny Betterbee he changed his story and told me that his distributor was supposed to mail me the refund check.  He told me he was going to contact his distributor and call me back.  He did not call me back.  I had to repeatedly call him and leave several voice mails before I was able to get a hold of him.  Since then he has consistently given me the runaround.  At one point he even told me that he was not able to make contact with his distributor because he (the distributor) has been out of work due to cancer.
  I attempted to call Danny Betterbee at DLB Flooring in excess of 20-30 times in an attempt to resolve this issue.  I left him a voice mail every time he did not answer my call.  He has answered approximately 5 of my phone calls. 

Eventually I started to feel as though Danny Betterbee was purposely not answering my phone calls whenever he would see my phone number on his caller ID.  Therefore, On Monday, October 5th, 2009 I called him from a different phone number which he would not recognize, He answered the first call I made from the different number.  He told me that He did not know I was trying to call him and that he did not receive any of the multiple voice mails I left for him.  I asked him if he could just credit the $356.93 back to my At &t Universal Mastercard.  He agreed and even confirmed the credit card number that the refund was to be credited to.  I waited approximately 5 days and contacted At & t Universal.  I was advised that there was no credit/refund posted to my account from DLB Flooring.


On October 12th, 2009 my wife and I went to DLB Flooring in an attempt to confront Danny Betterbee about the refund I am owed.  He gave us several different excuses and lies.  He told me that after speaking with me on October 5th, 2009 he contacted his distributor and gave him my credit card number over the phone.  He stated that the distributor was then supposed to issue the credit to my account.  That is totally different from what he told me over the phone on October 5th, 2009.  It was obvious that Danny Betterbee did not and never intended to give me my refund.  After several minutes of arguing, Danny Betterbee swiped my At & t Universal Credit Card at 1:35 pm and handed me a printed credit for a refund of $353.00.  I informed him that the refund was supposed to be for $356.93 not $353.00.  He then pulled a $5.00 bill out of his wallet and handed it to me with an irritated look on his face.  As of this date (October 19th, 2009) the $353.00 credit has
 not posted to my account.  I am worried that, based on Danny Betterbees past behavior, he cancelled the $353.00 refund transaction as soon as I walked out of his business.

I filed a complaint with the BBB and several other consumer organizations.  Someone needs to get the word out on this guy and put a stop to him.

Dear Mr Duke..

AUTHOR: danny batterbee - (United States of America)

What can i tell you about All about floors???  They are another flooring store in orlando, they have 2 stores i think...  There is nothing to say about Mark..


 


I dont know what else to say but i guess thank you for not bashing my name on craiglist, again for being in business for about 4 yrs now and only have 3-5 complaits is pretty damn good....  But again i really nevered used Soni Interiors that much and yes i was told when it first came out that it did have a 30yr warr on it, but i havent bought from them in a long long time, you can even call them and ask....


and some of what people say about Dlb flooring is all the same people..  here is a list for you....Ken martine, Nan chatman, Danille and alex exposito and thats pretty much it... but Nan chatman is handled already, she is happy as a bee(call her and ask)


i have not went to court with anyone else!!  so i dont know what you have read or heard....  Ken martin, i gave him his refund a long time ago)i have proof)


Now the exposito's have a reason to be upset..  but im still working on getting them fixed up....  So again we really do help alot of people with flooring....i would love for you to walk in and just shop me and i can show you a ton of happy customers from this yr alone!!!  So again i dont bait and switch people, I dont sell or buy from Soni's anymore and i strive on helping people get what they want and pay for!! 


stop in and see me or at least call me..  here is my number 407 709 0131..  Im always here for people with questions or concerns..

Tell me about Mark Langlios and his relationship with you and All Floors of Orlando. He seems to be your competition now.

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

Danny you lost in court again what happened? You realized you didnt have a snow balls chance at winning.Tell me about Mark Langlios and his relationship with you and All Floors of Orlando. He seems to be your competition now. Perhaps you can use this as a way to get your side of the story out. If you are honest I will play nice. If you ignore me I can assault you with a craigslist bashing unlike what you have seen so far from others. I can automatically post as many posts about you as often as I want. I have a program and a disposable account for just that. I would rather not waste that account on you but I will.

You kept asking me who I am, you dont know me and I dont know you personally. I found a post about you in rants and raves a long time ago. Because of what I do finding information about you is quite easy. I have refrained from posting lots of personal information and just kept it mostly business. It seems you have upset lots of people and I dont want to feel responsible for what others might do. I am telling you this to try to scare you straight.



The best advice for you if you plan on staying in business is to get off Craigslist. But I dont think you are going to do that when you can just go out of business and start all over again with what you may think is a clean slate. Especially now that you are court ordered to pay back Kenneth and his partner. They can still collect no matter what you do. Your reputation can/will follow you.



You will probably find yourself trying to do a craigslist hustle or two. DONT DO IT!!! Eventually you can get arrested. You are slightly protected by business laws right now but what you are doing is also criminal.

Doing the honest thing could obviously put you out of business but it looks like you are heading that way anyway. Liquidate what you have (dont hustle people on the piano finish product if you purchased it before Mr. Deep discontinued it you should be able to return it. If you purchased it for a deal after it was discontinued return it any way he knows what is going on with you return any of his products you have I was told he will except returns without a restocking fee) now start to pay people back!!!

If I can help in doing the right thing I will.

Run And Dont Look Back!

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

This should be interesting.  Lets take a look at the reviews left for you on Yellowbot. Now I understand that not every person is easy to please but you personally have more bad reviews for a small flooring business than any other locale small flooring company. DLB hasnt even been in business for that long.

First you have Miss Sandra Green Run and don't look back! Strong words need she say more. I dont think so but she did.

Next we have Dave. Dave is claiming he never even received the flooring that he paid you up front for. Thats not bait and switch thats just plain and simple theft-robbery. You cant blame that one on your installer Mark Langlois. It will be interesting to read who you do blame it on.

You just claimed your customers get what they pay for. It doesnt look that way unless you consider getting ripped off as something they paid for. You stated you strive to make all you customers happy. These people are not happy if they are happy do you think they would have used such strong language against you in a public forum?

Run and don't look back!

$4700 on laminate and carpet, unfinished work, no return calls, need I say more? Stay away from Mark Langlois his flooring guy, he is just as bad if not worse than Danny Batterbee.

Posted by Sandra Green on December 27, 2009

Buyer Beware

Unfortunately, I have had the same HORRIBLE experience with this company. I waited 2 months for the flooring to be delivered after paying over $7000. Excuses began to pile up and NO wood flooring as promised.

1 year later I still dont have the wood flooring and this one man shop still preys on people paying him upfront for the perfect flooring and then keeping their hard earned money knowing there's not much they will do. It is difficult to see this happen, but dishonest business persons will do what they have to do in bad economic conditions. Pay a little more and be guaranteed to get your wood flooring.

If you still dont believe me, please go down to Orango County Courthouse and look up lawsuits on this company and you will find several where he has lost.

PLEASE DONT BECOME A VICTIM OF THIS COMPANY. THERE ARE MANY, MANY MORE REPUTABLE COMPANIES OUT THERE WILLING TO WORK HARD FOR YOU, THE CUSTOMER.

I told you to look into it plus I shouldnt have to tell you what you already know. Again Danny playing stupid will only make you look stupid so you can stop pretending what you did to your foreclosed homes was not stealing. The law is Personal property is that which is not real estate. However, fixtures are real estate because they are not personal property; they are affixed to the land, to the house, which means fixtures stay with the house.

The house you purchased three years ago is still in foreclosure I suggest you replace everything you planed on illegally selling. Its too late for the one you lost and stripped some time ago. That will more than likely come back to haunt you, but I doubt you will be able to afford replacing the items you looted in your Waterford Lakes home, considering you cant afford to pay back the Expositos.  Keep in mind you were even selling the A/C unit and if you can pull it, you can take it!!

The FBI has set up the Mortgage Fraud Task Force. People are getting arrested for doing what you did on the local level as well. You did it twice and left evidence of both crimes. Most people used to get away with it but home owner associations like yours are getting pissed because you are bringing the value of their homes down along with the one you were formally purchasing from the bank. So more and more people like you are getting arrested for it.

The following items are assets, fixtures that should not be removed from a home that is in foreclosure:

         Cabinets and counter tops

         Appliances such as stoves, built-in microwaves, dishwashers, etc.

         Furnaces and air conditioning units

         Plumbing and copper pipes

         Romex or other electrical wiring

         Light fixtures and ceiling fans

         Doors and hardware

         Flooring, ceilings and walls

         Windows and vents

         Medicine cabinets, sinks, tubs, toilets and showers

         Sink drains and faucets

         Built-in shelving / bookcases

         Landscaping, fencing, built-in pools and spas

Assets Home Owners Can Remove from Foreclosed Homes

Here are items a home owner can remove without fearing prosecution:

         All personal items brought into the home by the owner such as furniture, clothing and common household items such as dishes, pans and silverware

         Mirrors

         Personal artwork and photographs from walls

         Stationary lamps

         Pets and pet-related items such as dog houses, aquariums, bird cages

         Easily removable window coverings such as drapes or curtains

         Refrigerators, televisions, computers and stereo equipment

         Throw and area rugs

         Indoor plants

         Portable fans and heaters

I hope this clears up any confusion you are pretending to have about the items in your foreclosed ex homes. You did not own any of the items you listed and sold.

You say mark hasnt worked for you in a long time. In my opinion a long time is something that is measured in years not in weeks.

Dear Mr. Batterbee

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

My response to Dannys post is in Blue Dannys words are in black

You Said:

 

Mr Duke you are a crazy man, For one thing let me clear something up with you, everything in my homes are things that i bought new..  I replaced all the cabinets, and appliances and flooring myself when i purchased those homes so yes those were mine to sell....

 

No. that is not how it works. If you think people are that stupid to believe that you can ransack the banks belongings and sell the stuff for profit right before they kick you out of their house for not paying for those exact items and not get charged with a felony if caught, then I guess you could believe that if you ordered and paid for one material and installation and instead the company you contracted installs a different material that, would be OK.  and yes all the things listed were the banks not yours. Research it. So, you did that crappy dated 8 builder grade tile in your kitchen yourself. Great job tile guy!!! I love the half inch grout joints.

 

2nd thing i wanted to go over with you is, why dont you say who you really are and quit hiding from a fake name....  you are probably not even a customer of mine, just some other store employee....  If you have a problem them take it up with me and quit hiding on the computer and tell me who you really are!!!!!!

 

?????You think I worked with you and now I am pissed? That says a lot for your personal work environment.

 

I love how you say i bait and switch people...  i was not the one who did that to Alex and Danielle....  that was one of my previous employee who is no loger here with me... and let me tell you another thing, i strive to make all my customers happy, and sometimes things dont always go to according to plan, but im always here trying to make people happy no matter what i haved to do!!!!!!!!!!

 

Well your getting better, the healing is starting to begin, the first step is admitting what you did was wrong. Its good to read that you admit you baited and switched the Expositos. The problem here is you are now trying to pass the buck onto your sub Mark Langlois the problem with that is you contract the work to him. You W-2 him, he represents you and DLB Flooring source when he shows up on peoples doorsteps with the material you sent him with. If he switched the materials you would have produced a receipt from Armstrong one of your distributors showing the materials ordered you would also have had to sign for the Armstrong material upon delivery there would be a very good dated and signed paper trail.

 

Soni Interiors, the people you ordered the laminate you used on the job, would also have a receipt of sale and delivery to you at that time. Of course you can say that was for some other job. But that would be a huge coincidence considering you are so slow you are losing and stripping your homes.

 

so again quit hiding behind a computer and tell me who you really are unless you are not who you so you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I never said I was anybody. I am not hiding I am right here in your face.

 

So is that your excuse for what you did to Kennith Martin and his partner? That it wasnt you that Mark Langlois did it.

A have to warn you Danny that playing stupid will not help you. It will just make you look stupid. DLB Flooring Daniel Lee Batterbee bait and switch

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

Come on Danny you tried that one already with Greg Dawson from the Orlando Sentinel. You told him you didnt know what he was talking about at first as well.


You asked for it so here is a perfect example of bait and switch.


You Daniel Lee Batterbee baited the Exposito family selling them an Armstrong flooring at a price they could hardly afford. Then you switched the material you sent your installer Mark Langlois (lois) with a much cheaper made in china Sonitex laminate. The product is boxed and shipped as Sonitex to Soni Interiors (AKA RugKing) http://soniinteriors.com/ 201 Hickman Dr. Sanford, FL 32771 Phone: 407 323 5444 Fax: 407 323 0701.


It is defiantly not an Armstrong product there is no way you could have confused the two.


Please explain your criminal actions on this one. You also must have me confused with somebody ells.

"After five years of saving and doing research, we decided to replace our carpeting with laminate flooring



by Armstrong. It was expensive but came with a warranty, and we fell in love with it. We shopped all over Orlando for 1,000 square feet in our price range and chose DLB Flooring owned by Danny Batterbee. The day he delivered our flooring it was in boxes labeled Sonitex, which we found is an inexpensive laminate made in China. Danny assured us he ordered the flooring from Armstrong directly. We contacted Armstrong and they told us their flooring always comes in Armstrong boxes with their name labeled on the back of each board. Our receipt from DLB states that we purchased Armstrong flooring, and Danny still claims that's what he sold us. Now we're stuck with 1,000 square feet of flooring without a warranty."


 


 


DANIELLE & ALEX EXPOSITO of ORLANDO



Dear Danielle & Alex: Danny Batterbee was floored when I reached him, saying this was the first he heard there was a problem. "I will call everyone I need to in order to make this right," he promised. That was Nov. 5. Since then he has continued to work with Armstrong to get you what you paid for. "I'm waiting on them for the next step," Danny told me last week. "But the Expositos won't have to do anything or pay out of pocket." The next shipment Batterbee right.

Dear Greg: It's been more than two months since Danny Batterbee promised in your column to deliver 1,000 square feet of Armstrong flooring that we bought from his company, DLB Flooring. Never in my life have I had such a bad experience with a purchase. This fiasco seems to go on and on with no end in sight. We have been more than flexible and patient with Danny agreeing to wait for the flooring, then when Danny said he couldn't get it, agreeing to a refund of $2,500 (about half what we paid). Now he wants us to wait until he gets money back on his taxes. We feel this is yet another stall tactic. Frankly, I have had it and want to put an end to this.

Dear Danielle: Ditto. Actually, I have to put an end to this. I've given Danny Batterbee so much slack, I'm out of rope. In his umpteenth promissory e-mail to me since November, Batterbee wrote: "I don't have the extra $2,500 right at this moment, but I can do a little. I do want to take care of them very fast. I will get some tax money in very soon. I will get back to you soon. Please don't write another article." Sorry, Danny my rope is gone, and the Expositos are tired of being strung along.

Danny Batterbee AKA Daniel Lee Batterbee of DLB Flooring Source stole from the bank

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

 

This is the second house that Danny Batterbee AKA Daniel Lee Batterbee of DLB Flooring Source stole the banks belongings from them and sold the stuff on craigslist of coarse this is after he lost them for not being able to make his payments. Had he used ethical business practices he probably would have been able to keep them. But Danny didnt. Danny didnt own these items he sold to people. The bank did. He stole from them and sold the items in a public forum-Craigslist. That wasnt very bright. He did the same thing to another house he lost over a year ago. That one had much nicer cabinets and granite counter tops. If you are one of his old banks or the purchaser of one of his old properties he is the person who defaced and stripped it of your belongings.  His name and properties can easily be looked up at the Orlando court house.

https://www.myfloridacounty.com/serv/MyFloridaCounty/ORI/Order?thisPage=MyFloridaCounty.ORI.Order.state.Start

This is just another example of what kind of crook this man is. Dont use him or any of his installers especially mark langlois to do your floors.

Reviews of DLB Flooring and the owner Daniel Batterbee

AUTHOR: Duke - (United States of America)

Some reviews of the man and his business.

 

 http://www.yellowbot.com/dlb-flooring-source-orlando-fl.html

 

Run and don't look back!

 

$4700 on laminate and carpet, unfinished work, no return calls, need I say more? Stay away from Mark Langlois his flooring guy, he is just as bad if not worse than Danny Batterbee.

Posted by Sandra Green on December 27, 2009

 

 

Buyer Beware


 
Unfortunately, I have had the same HORRIBLE experience with this company. I waited 2 months for the flooring to be delivered after paying over $7000. Excuses began to pile up and NO wood flooring as promised.

 

1 year later I still dont have the wood flooring and this one man shop still preys on people paying him upfront for the perfect flooring and then keeping their hard earned money knowing there's not much they will do. It is difficult to see this happen, but dishonest business persons will do what they have to do in bad economic conditions. Pay a little more and be guaranteed to get your wood flooring.

 

If you still dont believe me, please go down to Orango County Courthouse and look up lawsuits on this company and him. You will find several where he has lost.

A responce to the above posts.

 

Daniel lee batterbee of DLB flooring at 3118 Corrine Drive is notorious for doing this sort of thing he bates and switches people all the time. There used to be bad reviews of him all over the net but he somehow cleaned some of them up. Plenty are still out there just Google him, But any way Sonitex is a generic laminate made in china the product is boxed and shipped as Sonitex to
Soni Interiors http://soniinteriors.com/ (who are also Craigslist spammers and should be removed)
It's not a bad product and Soni claims a warranty although it is only verbal and it's nowhere on the box, But those people DANIELLE & ALEX EXPOSITO of ORLANDO defiantly did not get what they paid for. Its old fashioned bait and switch. He Daniel runs most of his scams right here on Craigslist this is a link to some of his ads.

Good luck. I hope you get some justice. He should be in jail he has stolen from many people.

 BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE!!!! by Floored! - 12/27/2009

 


The most unprofessional business we have ever worked with. They refuse to return calls and have left our house unfinished! Our home is in an unsafe condition with two young boys. There is not another side to this story. They are paid in full and refuse to return to work or return calls. You can chance it if you want to but I wish I would have seen this first before ever daring to do business with these crooks. I found several lawsuits online for similar instances. If you don't believe me, search for yourself. You will even find reports of it in the Orlando Sentinel. Go to Dear Greg.

 DLB Issues NSF Corporate Check on Closed account by madgal - 01/08/2009

 

 

The first tile ordered and the second tile ordered were the wrong tiles, but had second delivery installed as was tired of the 2-3 weeks wait at the Holidays.

 

 

Mr. Batterbee informed me that I had an $85 refund due for the wrong tile and inconvenience, etc. Almost a month later, after numerous excuses why the check was never available, on 12/27/08, a check for $50 was issued on the DLB account at SunTrust Bank, which turned out to be NSF on a closed account. Mr. B. vigorously denied he had issued a 'rubber check', but nonetheless, has not made good on it to date, 1/8/09.

 

 

Please note that the phone number above has been disconnected; Mr. B. uses a cell phone now.

 

Care should be taken when dealing with him.

 

 

I agree with all of these postings. This guy is dishonset and should be arrested.  Here is what I wrote to my credit card company when dealing with a refund Danny Batterbee told me he would give me:




On Friday, May 15th, 2009, I bought 1498.72 square feet of Park Avenue 12mm laminate flooring, underlayment and coordinating trim from DLB Flooring located at 3118 Corrine Drive Orlando, FL 32802.  I paid $5342.11 with my At & t Universal Mastercard.  After this purchase I decided to upgrade the underlayment for the flooring.  On Monday, May 18th, 2009 I authorized another charge of $628.25 for the upgrade.  When I received the flooring, underlayment and trim I realized that some of the trim pieces were incorrect.  The owner of DLB Flooring, Danny Betterbee, told me that he was going to correct the order.  I waited and eventually decided to return the trim pieces to him.  On Thursday, June 18th, 2009 I returned the trim pieces to DLB Flooring for a refund of $175.00 which posted two days later on June 20th, 2009.  On this same day I mentioned to Danny Betterbee that I had 7 extra unopened boxes of flooring left over after installation.

 



He told me that I could return the 7 boxes to DLB Flooring for a full refund of $356.93.  I returned the 7 boxes of flooring to DLB Flooring on Monday, June 22nd, 2009.  Danny Betterbee gave me a handwritten credit slip for $356.93 and told me that Armstrong would mail me a check for the refund.  After waiting for at least 1-2 months I called Armstrong to see where my refund check was.  They informed me that they do not mail refunds to customers.  When I contacted Danny Betterbee he changed his story and told me that his distributor was supposed to mail me the refund check.  He told me he was going to contact his distributor and call me back.  He did not call me back.  I had to repeatedly call him and leave several voice mails before I was able to get a hold of him.  Since then he has consistently given me the runaround.  At one point he even told me that he was not able to make contact with his distributor because he (the distributor) has been out of work due to cancer.

  I attempted to call Danny Betterbee at DLB Flooring in excess of 20-30 times in an attempt to resolve this issue.  I left him a voice mail every time he did not answer my call.  He has answered approximately 5 of my phone calls. 



Eventually I started to feel as though Danny Betterbee was purposely not answering my phone calls whenever he would see my phone number on his caller ID.  Therefore, On Monday, October 5th, 2009 I called him from a different phone number which he would not recognize, He answered the first call I made from the different number.  He told me that He did not know I was trying to call him and that he did not receive any of the multiple voice mails I left for him.  I asked him if he could just credit the $356.93 back to my At &t Universal Mastercard.  He agreed and even confirmed the credit card number that the refund was to be credited to.  I waited approximately 5 days and contacted At & t Universal.  I was advised that there was no credit/refund posted to my account from DLB Flooring.





On October 12th, 2009 my wife and I went to DLB Flooring in an attempt to confront Danny Betterbee about the refund I am owed.  He gave us several different excuses and lies.  He told me that after speaking with me on October 5th, 2009 he contacted his distributor and gave him my credit card number over the phone.  He stated that the distributor was then supposed to issue the credit to my account.  That is totally different from what he told me over the phone on October 5th, 2009.  It was obvious that Danny Betterbee did not and never intended to give me my refund.  After several minutes of arguing, Danny Betterbee swiped my At & t Universal Credit Card at 1:35 pm and handed me a printed credit for a refund of $353.00.  I informed him that the refund was supposed to be for $356.93 not $353.00.  He then pulled a $5.00 bill out of his wallet and handed it to me with an irritated look on his face.  As of this date (October 19th, 2009) the $353.00 credit has

not posted to my account.  I am worried that, based on Danny Betterbees past behavior, he cancelled the $353.00 refund transaction as soon as I walked out of his business.



I filed a complaint with the BBB and several other consumer organizations. Hopefully, these postings are not flagged and removed from craigslist.  Someone needs to get the word out on this guy and put a stop to him.
