Hired Lipton Buildings, Will Flanigan, to build a horse barn for me.  After designing and laying out the area he asked for a portion of the cost, $11,000.  He had a dozer guy come out to level what I had already paid to have level.  He had wood delivered and we never discussed a wood barn, just metal.  He had framers come out and frame it.  He went to my bank and I had authorized the first payment of $11,000 in a cashiers check.  He said he wanted cash.  I had someone else building a carport.  They told me the dozer guy kept coming by asking for Will to get his money. 

Will told me the framers mother was sick and they had to take off to go to the hospital.  Now Will won't return my calls, texts or emails.  No more material was delivered after the lumber.  I called my bank to find out about what transpired with the cashiers check and was told he wanted all cash. [continued below]....
.....  That was weird.  Its been over two weeks and no one has been back to complete the barn.   I had told him my brother was questioning some of the work and process of the barn, i.e. the grade was way off.   Just a bad year with divorce after 20 years, illness and now a ripoff artist.  Lesson learned, trust no one.

Rebuttal to Will Flanigan's post

AUTHOR: Pam - ()

Will Flanigan, aka Lipton Buildings or Simpson Sheds may think he was honest with his customers but he is not.  I paid 11,300 for approximately $300 worth of wood.  The laborers he hired and DID not pay told me there was no more than $300 worth of material.  The guys also said Will Flanigan told them he knew the post would not hold because he told them not to put them in the ground deep and he knew the concrete would crack.  Concrete was done much later, paid by me, and reinforced because of his shoddy work.

He did not make good with me on this.  Check back at all the previous customers comments.  He said "one" dissatisfied customer - sure!  He has had so many dissatisfied customers. 

Will Flanigan, David Flanigan, Donnie Flanigan, and the rest of the group that work together are all scammers.  They intend to take your money and run.  They never intend to complete the work. 

This game he plays is how he makes his living with "Cash" money taken from people. 

Beware of this guy.  He will change his company name and his phone number, website etc.  He has had so many different names in the past and he changes the name he goes by.  Sometimes he is William, Will, Tom or Thomas.  He is vague and gray in his contract and how he displays his information.

Do not trust him.  I have not found one satisfied customer.

Not rebuttal but a reply

I would like to get in contact with you.  I had the same problem happen to me.  Flanigan uses different company names.

Not sure how to get in touch with each other.  There is another website to go to if you want to get in touch.
