To any of the greater New Orleans area Contractors:

 If you or anyone you know is doing business, or may do business with a Joshua (Josh) Bruno of Bruno INC, Downtown Development Group, Metro-Wide ApartmentsA.J.P. properties, Omega Construction, Washington Gardens LLC, Washington Heights llc, Saint Ann Square LLC, Or Crescent City Collections, you need to collect as much of your money as possible up front or now and cease to do any further work for this guy. Why?

 Joshua Lawrence Bruno, (Josh Bruno or J. Bruno) of the companies listed above, will never pay his balance in full.  He insists on getting a discount while he slams the door in your face.  This person is very demanding, very high maintenance and extremely rude.  He will schedule an appointment for you and leave you waiting in the lobby for over 90 minutes, shut the door in your face, ignore your phone calls, and then will not pay you for the work that you have done.

I am a local business in the Great city of New Orleans, and I have always taken the extra steps to ensure that my customers are taken care 100% Bruno Inc was no exception, in fact, I postponed 3 clients in order to handle his urgent requests.  His work was done in 2 phases over his 4 apartment complexes, his office on 3929 Tulane ave (where he is always at) and on his maintenance van

 After the first phase Josh Bruno received an invoice that was already at a discounted rate, but still demanded more.  After several headaches and a promise of future work, the discounted rate was discounted further.  The discount that I offered was for my company to "eat" one of the work orders, meaning the rates were the same but he still received more of a discount. After he was paid in full for the first phase he then issued a new list of projects to be handled as soon as possible.

After the equipment had come in, My Company took care of all his needs in a timely manner.  Everything was installed professionally and working properly.  Josh Bruno received the invoices for each one of his projects and was billed 40% below the industries current hourly rate, and he still was not happy.  He then told me what he was going to pay and said take it or leave it. 

 This rate was at 70% below my competitors prices and 30% below my invoices.  I stated the discounts that he was already receiving and how my company could not afford to work for next to nothing.  His response was to take it or leave it, and if I tried to take the matters to small claims court, he would use his government connections to tie it up in an ongoing legal battle.

We are a small company that does honest and professional work in the greater New Orleans area, and to work for Bruno Inc for over 4 weeks and not receive a dime, hurts.  Currently Josh Bruno is so unhappy with our work that he has kept the equipment that we installed and is refusing to pay for it as well.  It is strange that someone would refuse to pay and refuse to give the equipment back too. 

 His Current balance is sitting over several thousand dollars.

 This man known as Joshua Bruno, is from New York and claims to have mob ties, he is the type of person that curses out all of his employees and wonders why they all quit at one time.  The amount of stress that I have received is out of this world, I have had migraines daily in dealing with this company.  As I felt that I may be alone I started digging around for others that may have had similar issues I have found 7 so far and counting.  If you are curious, then Google his name with fraud, complaint, or rip off and see what pops up.  He hunts companies down on Craigslist.org or he orders his minions to do his dirty work.  He is constantly looking for new employees, and or contractors promising the world but instead handing them a bag of something less pleasant.  

 I should have read the signs in dealing with this guy as he had several other companies in before me that refuse to do any more work for him or his company.  I made the mistake of thinking that I could be that company and shine through where others have failed. 

 As a response to my post I am sure he will say things such as disgruntled contractor, or my rates were insane, somewhere along these lines, but the facts remain.  He agreed to my rates when he paid them in the first phase.  I have worked for my competition and I know exactly what everyone else charges.  My companys rates are way below the competition, as I don't have the overhead that they do. 

 Let Bruno Inc. say what they will, the fact is he hates to pay people, and if he doesn't want to pay you, then he will NOT PAY.  His goal is to have you do all the work, never pay you, then hire someone else to finish the job.

 Josh Bruno is the Reason For Contracts.

Did I mention that he does loans as well!
