find his website at www.fontaineflooring.com  it appears he ripped his website company  off too.

I found his website person had posted a page with all the info to know I had been defrauded of my money.  Find that page at www.fontaineflooring.com/fraud.htm Note that all those reports are in the last few months. He is on a rip off mission.

My story:  I gave Wayne Fontaine $500 cash as a deposit to refinish my floors. [continued below]....
.....  He said he had lost his id and could not cash a check.  He gave a reference of a woman that I was able to call.  This was probably someone who is working with him.  He took the money, scrapped the edges of the floors and left for lunch.  Wayne has never returned.  He would call, say he had been in the hospital, that he was at my house and could not get the key code to work on the lock on the door, etc., etc., etc. 

Friends story:  I had made the mistake of referring him to a friend on the same day because he seemed sincere, she gave him a $350 check deposit.  He cashed the check, partially sanded the floor and then said that his equipment was broken.  After leaving many messages this gal got a return call that he would be back in one hour.  Of course he was a no show and never returned a call again.

Phone numbers he uses are: 763-447-0253 and 763-377-0059.
The insurance number he gives you is fraudulent.
He lives in NE Minneapolis at:

Upon doing a background check after the fact we found that he had contact with the police for domestic violence.

Beware of this person before you get involved and lose your money.

The man in the picture is not who you claim he is!!!!!!!!

I have had Fontaine Flooring work on my floors 3 times, and each time he was ontime, clean and did awsome work.  Legimate people suffer from identify thefts as well.  I've heard many stories of competitors doing things like you state in order to hurty the actual bussiness.  You can't be sure of the situation and it dosen't give you the right to slander a person online.

Always check for refferences and ask the right questions.  Looking to get work done cheaply comes at a price, you have to be willing to make the mistake and move on!

Posting a picture is fine.  Posting a picture that includes a child is imoral and rude.  The internet is not designed for slander of others and illegal reposting of pictures that include peoples children.

I will refer this "lady" and the post to the police if this picture is not removed.
