Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Jacksonville Home Improvements, Inc. / Mark McGuire has not only ripped off me but from what I am finding out there are many other homeowners in Jacksonville, FL that have been taken by him. The key is he will come in
under budget to get the job and promise all sorts of stuff but, does not follow through. Also, he doesn't put a completion date on his contracts.
Now I know why!
He asks for a huge sum up front and then takes months to start the project. Then after 6 or seven months he will show up for more money and then not show up to do any work for another 3 months. You have to fight tooth and nail with him to get anything done.
Many of his sub-contractors have either quit for non-payment or are hanging on hoping to get paid. Most of the subs he has now do very poor work and are getting paid very little.

I have heard that there are other home owners that have given him 100% of the cost of the project and barely anything has been done. Needless to say, he doesn't care about his customers.
He has mentioned to sub-contractors that he doesn't plan on finishing my project, and has threatened other homeowners if they report him he will take longer on their projects.

 Just to PROVE you are a liar and a cheat and scam people, check out the Duval county ARREST RECORDS on Sept. 03, 2013 and guess what Mark, YOU WERE ARRESTED FOR............EXPLOITATION OF THE ELDERLY !!!!! Hows THAT for proof you are a liar and scammer.  You also have arrests for bad checks to subs who did work for you and suppliers.

FINALLY, someone knew how to bust may be out on bond right now, but they are not done with you.  haha, you have the STATE coming after you now because this arrest has opened a whole big can of worms for you. You cant lie out of this one, WE ARE ALL going to be in court and look into your face and watch you squirm like you did so many other poor people. FINALLY!!!!!!!

 How Dare you lie like that Mark.  I know the WOMAN who wrote that snake letter and she was a CUSTOMER you jerk.  You know who it was.

YOU NEVER HAD ANY EMPLOYEES except your retarded, drug infested, filthy son Damien.  You used ONLY SUBS to do your work and you NEVER paid them....................

How about Ms Smith, who's son Roosevelt died waiting for his bath and kitchen to be finished...........How about B*stard.  She died LAST week 8-25-13 and STILL WASNT FINISHED.

SHe had you on Ken Amaro tv news channel 4 where you promised to have her done within 4 weeks, and here it is 4 years later and poor Connie DIED waiting for your filthy a*s to finish her house after you took OVER $114,000.00 from her

Disgruntalled employee my a*s, you filthy liar,  I was a customer of yours too, so I know FIRST HAND how you opperate

Now you started a new business because Jacksonville Home Improvement has such a bad name and so many law suits against it you and Karin your ex wife.  Youre scamming under the new name of "        Home and Patio Design and Construction, Inc.

How stupid do you think people are..........I tell everyone to check you out...........I make sure you cant get people from craigs list anymore by warning them about you.  You are a piece of garbage, the best part of you ran down your pappys leg

There is NOTHING good about you, even though you pretend to be a Christian, then swear, F..., F..., F... at a customer right after saying grace at the table in a restuarant to make yourself look good to customers you are trying to scam.....oops, forgot about that one didnt you Mark.......I was there and watched you......

Your lies are catching up to you, now that Karin got out of bed with Damien and divorced you and took everything you had, you think you can scam others to get back what you threw away at the tracks and gambling.............good luck.........You will never have ANYTHING because you are TRASH................

AUTHOR: Scorpio54 - (United States of America)

how dare you pretend the comment was made by a disgrunted employee.  It was made by a customer you screwed.  I know because we are another homeowner you screwed for over $114,000.00.

You started another business to cover your a*s because you even tore out 2 disabled seniors kitchen and bathroom, shut off their water (ie, no toilet) for months and when they begged you to fix what they had PREPAID you for, you told them they were a charity case.

Unhappy employee,  you NEVER had an employee, you only used SUBS who you easily ripped off and never paid.  Remember, Im  know many who took you to court to get what you owed.

Mark you have the nerve to pretend this when you have such a Lonnnnnnnnnggggggg Criminal history all over the country.  If you are reading this, please pull up the PUBLIC records in Duval county and Clay county florida, with Mark McGuires name and his birthday 7-11-62, you will find enough arrest records for grand thieft of customers, assult and battery on his wife and CHILD, Pretending to be a police officer and being busted for it..............on and on

So DO NOT pretend its someone who use to work for you thats just mad you piece of scum, You are a scammer and thief.  You STEAL from poor seniors who cant get the work they prepay for or their money back.  2 people I know personally have DIED waiting for your help and you just laughed and said "Just another dept I dont have to pay".

If I found you, you would be in jail, the state of florida is looking for you
