Unfortunately, my a*s't Principal's husband, who was supposed to be a big-time contractor, suddenly became available to "help." Therein lies the problem. Henry Schach, AKA Natalie Schach Construction, AKA Dennis Rae Fine Art, AKA PSA Imports has $55,000 from me and I have no kitchen or bath.
He packed up his stuff and left after I ran out of money. He put charges on my AmEX without permission after he became angry. His wife said to "do what I need to do" and that she doesn't know anything about construction and doesn't want to be involved.
Henry and his son, David, created a fraudulent invoice to back-up the charges to AmEX. Henry had run the charges through his son's company, Dennis Rae Fine Art, in San Francisco. DRFA represents big name artists and the fake invoice and Henry's dishonest notes state that the "materials" were ordered directly from DRFA.
They listed things I'd been billed for in the first $35,000. I've learned he's had other difficulties. Also, he has no license. He emailed photos of fabulous houses that he said he'd done and he and Barbara stated that he works on high-end properties.
Anyway, he turned out to be a complete bully and psycho who has a hit-list that goes back to his dealings with Peter Uberroth and the 1984 Olympics. He has a large workshop and appears legitimate. He pays his workers only in cash and a week behind. He refuses to pay them if he gets mad at them. Also, he has them buy materials from their own pockets and won't reimburse if he has a tiff with them.
Also, I've never received a copy of even one receipt from the guy. Henry made excuses for not filling out the condo association papers, but failed to mentioned that he couldn't fill them out because he's not licensed. Sold my original cabinets for $500 and pocketed the funds. Failed to return personal goods or goods that came out of my place originally.
How he can go through $55,000 and not complete a single job in a one-bedroom condo is beyond me. It's always everyone else's fault, by the way. This guy is completely illegal.
