Complaint Review: A-1 Pools & Spas. Inc.
A-1 Pools & Spas. Inc. Craig Forchetti, Vance Forchetti, Craig Forchetti scammed me - 418$ for a 15 minutes visit, while also breaking front pannel of my jacuzzi Morrisville Pennsylvania
*UPDATE Employee: Owner trying to cheat a1 pools for free diagnostics on spa
My husband contacted Craig Forchetti since the heater in our jacuzzi was not working well. He decided to go ahead with him since he beyond the fact that he sounded professional and reliable on the phone, he also promised to deduct the price of the inspection from the price of fixing the problem.
Well, his guy came for 15 minutes, broke the front wall of the jacuzzi while taking it apart, charged for the inspection 418$ just to come back asking for 1,800$ for a minor problem to fix, and demanded only cash or a check on the spot.
I tried calling a few numbers on the list of 11 "branches" listed on the A-1 pools & spas website after that absurdly priced visit, to ask how much is an inspection since I knew they scammed us for the visit price. Well, as it turned out, all numbers lead to only one guy, the same Craig Forchetti. And interesting enough, he was the only person, out of all the service guys I called before to get a quote, that refused to give me a direct quote for a visit service and instead asked me a bunch of questions. Other service guys, as it turned out, charge 70$ for a visit.
After posting my feedback online mister Forchetti had the nerve to call my husband screaming and yelling and threatening to take legal action. Legal action for what exactly? Mister Craig Forchetti, here's a thought- if you want to avoid negative reviews perhaps don't scam your customers...? After googling this guy it seems like he has a long history of scamming people in the same way he scammed me and changing the name of his company (used to be Craig Forchetti Pools, All Pools service company) and his own name (Vince Forchetti, Ed, Bob). My guess is that each time his old company gets to many bad reviews due to his scamming ways he simply goes and opens the same company with a different name.
Since he seems like a pro at this type of activity and since it seems like a way of life for him, I lost hope of getting back my money. Would like to warn other inoccent people out there from falling into his trap.
