June 15,2008 Dennis required $1800 down to be placed on a list to build me a 16x24 cabin. The contract stated 1/2 down by July 1.Upon signing the contract I told him I would need to check with my financial advisor as to the availability of my funds by that time. I had more than enough to build this cabin. I was told by my advisor I would lose considerable interest if I removed the money before July 1. I sent a certified letter to Dennis which he ignored.Later we spoke on the phone and he agreed to accept the money at a later date. July 4 he was paid $8000 and had not started the project. This was fine as we targeted the last of July or first of Aug. to begin. At that time we had discussed my purchasing some materials for the job and Dennis was trying to negotiate purchasing some equipment from me. This was to be deducted or in leiu of the remaining 1/2 down.

July 17, Dennis, not having equipment to deliver materials chose to use my trailer to purchase $702.91 worth of sheeting that sat for 44 days on my trailer.

Aug 4 he came with a helper and poured 12 sauna tubes for the footing.

Aug.18 Dennis applied for credit at the only lumber yard that carried the siding I requested. He was denied credit.

Aug.22 I purchased interior pine we had agreed on from a company going out of business. This saved a considerable amount. I needed to pay the company with a cashiers check for $387. I intended to return to pick up the flooring which was 16 ft. long but Dennis had my other trailer loaded with the sheeting and he made no arrangement to remove it. The company was eager to have the bundled lumber removed asap. I therefore was unable to purchase the flooring.

Aug 24 Dennis having applied for credit at the lumber yard, knew by now that his credit was denied. The company sent out his denial letter the next day . Dennis on this day left me a message that he was not constructing my cabin and that I should take the matter to an attorney. THE QUESTION BEING WHY DID HE NOT USE MY FUNDS TO PURCHASE????

Aug. 28 I RECEIVED A THREATENING CALL from. Dennis telling me he would get me and my ranch! I have just 20 acres!!!

Aug.29 Dept. of Labor visited the site where he had been working and learned that he was registered as a mason and not for construction. They ask if he would change it and his reply was that he is working out of state. That is doubtful.

Sept. 4 Being a woman and 68 yrs. old I immediately applied for a concealed carry permit renewal .

I have demanded return of my money as has my attorney. Dennis was served with a summons and we are now awaiting an answer.

I have requested that the county attorney investigate this as felony theft. The may believe that I breached this contract. I assure them that this contract was in writing as well as verbal which I am told stands up in Mt. court. I have all evidences of such verbal and receipts for purchase of materials. I feel confident I will win in civil court but the problem is this man lives with and hides behind a womans skirt with I am certain everything in her name. I have little doubt I will see any moneys until this is tried criminally.

Raceism rears its ugly head

AUTHOR: Dennis Oswalt - (USA)

Hello I am Dennis Oswalt
The person that filed this slander, is not even honest enough to use their real name?
As I was just made aware of this, I will simply say the facts and on another posting include the letters to the police and the better buisness administration.
I have great pitty for this person for she is very ill and alone in this world,and this is the very reason I dont litigate this matter(pitty)
Her name is Pat F so all are aware of this in the future, not to do work for her.
Simple facts 1 She advertised a cabin for rent, to a cabin that didnt even exist. This months before we even meet.2 It was to be a little $15,000 cabin, She couldnt  even make the first down payment to meet her responability to the project. 3 She wanted to trade brokedown equipment in place of the Money. 4 Then the cabin went to a $25,000 cabin with lots of extras added but still wanted to pay the lesser amount?(impossible)
5 She was able to get some monies together and we started to move forward Foundation work began and materials were got and delivered and camp trailers and porta pottys were ready to come in.(ALL VERIFIABLE) 6 The straw that broke my patient back.
She asumed I build all this single handed and when she realized there would be helpers staying in ther camper she said who.(not and unreasonable request)The persons helping are reputable buisness men owning there own homes and land and buisnesses in the area.
When I gave the name of the man, who happens to be of Mexican decent               (and legal citizen) born and raised here in montana.(She yelled, I quote)
& At this point there was nothing more that could be done for her,It is so sad that in this day and age such a thing real dose still exist and I will have no part in it.
She was informed to get a lawyer, as this would have to be worked out.
We lost time and money with this person, as we now had no job for the allowed time
all because of a Ill and narrow minded person. And then the slander and smear campain began,All my references, the sheriff and state people, all lied to and misinformed by her, until properly informed by me.
This sounds like a lot to go through and this is just a sample of the trouble PAT FRITSCHE has caused and the sadist part is, when she reads this she will be smiling of the trouble she has caused. It has been a year and I am still dealing with this.
I own my part in not walking away when I gave her first notice of her breech of contract. Pat F needs to own her part in this,If it wasn't for her racist attitude she would have a nice cabin.     Dennis Oswalt dba (Wandering Bear Masonry)
