I was hired by Paul Simon as a carpenter to assist in building his hotel. After a short time I realized that Mr. Simon is less than honorable in his business practices (court actions for breach of contract, construction fraud, etc.). After watching Mr. Simon fire a group of Mexican carpenters then tell them he would not be paying them and if they ever returned he would have them deported. I chose it was best to part company from this type of person. Mr. Simon paid me for one week of work ($3,324.00) and is refusing to pay me for the still owed week and a half. The outstanding balance is $5,487.00. Not included is legal advice, court-filling fees, lose of work and transportation cost, which is an additional $850.00. Total owed, $6,337.00 by Mr. Simon.

Due to non-payment I have been forced to place a lien against the property.

Paul Simone has a history of ripp-offs and cons. His under hander business practices will not stop until the public is aware he is a predator and stops doing business with him and the companies associated with him.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Invalid Report

AUTHOR: Eric - (USA)

George was hired by Simone Development to install end roof trusses for the Hampton Inn and Suites in Oldsmar FL. After George finished his work, the building official of pinellas county was called out for inspection. George's work was red tagged and failed to meet suffiecint requirements with results of the building official failing inspection.

Paul diligently contacted George to modify his work. George demanded to be payed the remaining portion of his contract before he would carry out any work.

According to AIA Document A401 "standard form of agreement between contractor and subcontractor" Article 3 - 3.4 Contractor Remedies.... If the subcontractor defaults or neglects to carry out the Work in accordance with this Agreement and fails within five working days after notice from the Contractor to commence and continue correction of such default or neglect with diligence and promptness, the contractor may, by appropriate modification, and without prejudice to any other remedy the Contractor may have, make good such deficiencies and may deduct the reasonable cost therof from the payments then or thereafter due the Subcontractor.

George also failed to meet AIA Document A401 "standard form of agreement between contractor and subcontractor" Article 4 - 4.7 Remedies for nonpayment.       

If the contractor does not pay the subcontractor through no fault of the subcontractor, within 7 days from teh time payment should be made as provided in this agreement, the subcontractor may, without prejudice to any other available remedies, upon 7 additional days' written notice to the contractor, stop the work of this subcontract until payment of the amount owing has been received. The subcontract sum shall, by appropriate modification, be increased by the amount of the subcontractor's reasonable cost of demobilization, delay and remobilization.


George failed to correct changes to suffiecent the inspection needs. Simone development then had to hire another company to correct Georges work.


George's argument is invalid. George is practing slander against Paul's name for history of ripp-offs, cons, and unproffessional and inapropriate names "predator" .
