I am a small business located in Haymarket, VA. I was contacted by R & R Developers, Inc on Feb. 8, 2013 asking for a propsal to perform work at the US Coast Guard located in Alexandria, VA. R & R Developers, Inc. was the General Contractor for the project. I was asked to submit a proposal for phase1 & phase 2 as separate proposals. Phase 1 was for vegetation removal and ground stabilization. Phase 2 was for removing 800' x 6' high wooden fence and replacing with new 800' x 6' high cedar wood fence. I submitted a proposal for both phase 1 and a separate proposal for phase 2. I was contacted by R & R Developers, Inc. on Feb. 16 informing me I would be awarded phase 1 (Vegetation) of the project and phase 2 would be awarded to another sub contractor. We finalized the scope & details of the project with payment terms at Net 30 days after completion of project. We communicated often via phone & email during contracting and construction. R & R Developers executed a P.O. which was signed by both parties agreeing to scope of work & payment terms on Feb 18. Contract amount was $15,900.00
I began work on Feb. 19 & completed the project on Feb. 21. I invoiced R & R Developers, Inc. on Feb. 22 via email & also sent invoice via USPS. Phase 2 (Fencing) of the project was performed by another sub contractor. Contract amount was for approximately $10,000. I happen to be friends with the other sub contractor. They performed their scope of work which was completed by March 1.
On March 25 I called R & R to inquire about payment and the call went straight to voicemail. I sent an email inquiring about payment status. For the next several weeks, I continued to call (leaving message)& email daily only to have the calls go straight to voicemail and no replies from voicemail or emails. I contacted my friend who was contracted for phase 2 and he informed me that he also had not received payment. All his attempted communication also went unanswered.
As of the writing of this Rip Off Report, I have not had any response or payment from R & R Developers, Inc. The other sub contractor has not had any response or payment from R & R Develpers, Inc.
I have now engaged an attorney to pursue legal avenues via a Judgement & possible Criminal intent to defraud. I have also filed a complaint with DPOR of Virginia as I have since learned that R & R Developers, Inc. is not licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia. All contractors conducting business in the Commonwealth of Virginia must be licensed with DPOR.
I urge anyone considering doing business with R & R Developers, Inc. (P.O. Box 36853 Indianapolis, IN 46236 - 5020 E. 62nd St. Indianopolis, IN 46220 Ph.# 317-797-8397) to get full payment in advance before performing any work contracted on their behalf.
