Roy H. Parks III Roy Hartley Scamming photographer Milford Michigan
Roy Hartley, the name we knew him by, gave us a flyer at a bridal show about 6 months before our wedding (8-3-13). We called him and he suggested we meet up that day because he was running a great promotion that was ending that day, so we met up with him later that evening and signed the contract, his work looked good and from the price we thought we were getting the deal if a lifetime. Turns out we were just in the beginning stages of his Scam! He was overly nice and gave us many options on saving more money, so of course we took him up on his offer to skip the engagement session and save an additional $95 on our package. It wasn't until 39 days before our wedding that we get a call from him stating he could no longer give us the agreed upon package price. We were obviously upset but calm at first, then his attitude completely changed and he told us to find another company, which at this point we already wanted to do. So I gave him more than 30 days notice that we were terminating our contract with him and we would like our deposit back, since the contract stated we were entitled to it back if we cancel before 30 days. And then before I know it I am getting served court papers, he is suing us to keep our money even though he has no right to! It wasn't until I got the papers from the court that I learned his REAL last name (parks III) and when I typed that into google, a multitude of cases came up about him doing the same thing to other people. Lesson learned. Then I called the banquet center where the bridal show was held to ensure he wouldn't be allowed to advertise there anymore. I also called the hall were we were having our wedding reception to give them and heads up on the guy and make sure non of the other couples were using him, they then told me that they had a bride and groom who just had a problem with him in January 3013. This man is a crook, he is just looking for ways to steal your money. I also would like to add that around 3 months after signing the contract he came to our door, obviously not knowing it was one of his photography clients houses, asking if we need a lawn service.... How many scam businesses does this guy have?!
