On, September 19, 2012, Mr. Lee Alday came into my home and entered into a contract to install all wood kitchen cabinets and granite counter tops. He required 60% down payment to get started on the job. We agreed on the terms and I paid him the required 60% down payment and provided him with custom stainless steel sink.

After 4 reschedules (granite counter tops cracked while loading, wrong cabinets ordered, Mr. Lee Alday hospitalized and cabinets being damaged while being loaded) on behalf on Mr. Alday, he cancelled one last time. I asked for the return of my 60% deposit and my sink. To this day, I have not received any monies nor my sink from Lee Alday.

Do not trust this man, he is a scam artist. He is even a public official in his hometown of Altha, FL. He also owns a bar (Swampy Tonk), where he was arrested for selling alcohol to minors.

I just would like my money and my sink or compensation for my sink returned. I want to get on with my life. My family is left with no money, a partially demolished kitchen and no funds to remodel the kitchen. Thank you Lee Alday for your dishonest ways. I pray that no one else falls pray to this man.

#1 Author of original report

Justice has prevailed!

AUTHOR: Tracey - ()

Although Mr. Alday has claimed he incurred expenses, the Judge saw through his smoke screen. Mr. Alday was attempting to collect on transportation costs that his ad originally said free estimates. I have never laid eyes upon the granite countertops, but according to his testimony, the countertops in his yard with my sink attached.

With that being said, on April 15, 2013, the Judge found in my favor and ruled against Mr. Alday. After discussion, defendant consents to Judgement in favor of the plaintiff, Tracey Brown, in the amount of $3000.00, plus costs of court.

As of, June 17th, we have received no monies from Mr. Day day.

Reponse to Tracy Brown's Statments about Armco Cabinets and Lee Alday

AUTHOR: Lee - ()

There are a few things that I would like to clear up regarding Tracy Brown's statements.  Armco Cabinets is a family owned business.  We have been in business since 2005.  The nature of our business is cabinet and granite sales and installation.  Tracy Brown and Armco Cabinets terminated our agreement for cabinets and granite counter tops on December 21, 2012.  We agreed to pay her back for her deposit, however we incured expenses against this job which includes the following: 

            Granite Material-  $800

            Cutting Fee      -  $  95.92

            Undermount Sink Fabrication  $ 150

            Estimating Time ( Trips to customers home 2 hrs) $100

            Gas Expense  $ 70.00

            Shipping Expense to Pick up Granite in  New Orleans $ 300

            Total Expense to Armco Cabinets  $ 1475.92

            Legal Fees                                    $ 300.00

            Total to date including Legal Expense  $1775.92

This matter is now in Litigation in small claims court.

I would like to take a minute to address the personal attacks that Mrs. Brown has made toward me, Lee Alday.  First of all I don't own the business, my children do.  My health is poor so I am limited to the sales part of the business.  I do not own Swampy Tonk bar, my son does.  The incident that Mrs. Brown is referring to which resulted in my arrest was while I was overseeing the bar operations while my son was out of town with his family.  I was later found innocent through court preceding which is on file in the Calhoun County Clerks office Blountstown Florida.  I am a Altha Town Councilman, an elected position, and have been for nearly 9 years.  I am not a scam artist, as Mrs. Brown would like you to believe.  We have successfully completed over 300 kitchen cabinet and counter top jobs.  If there is anyone who would like a list of references you are welcome to email us at
