I contracted Ed Mara (Jr & Sr) to install a Viking fiberglass pool. They were paid $38,500. The only work that was performed was the digging of the hole and placing the pool in the hole (the hole was not even backfilled). The were contracted to Install the pool, plumbing, lighting, equipment and concrete/paver decking. No equipment or supplies were ever deliver or installed.

I signed a contract with MSTPs in the early summer 2006. It is now the fall 2007 and I have not heard from them since May 2007. I have made many phone calls, emails and faxes but have not received any equipment, money or labor that is owed to me.

At this point I have moved forward and installed the pool without them. I want them to return to me $18,000 (this of course does not include stress and frustration).

If you see any rebuttle to this note from the Maras, do not believe it. I will enter a rebuttle myself when the matter has been cleared.

Ed Mara Sr, to my understanding ran into some problems and had to leave PA. He is now in South Caroline in/near Myrtle Beach. If you know his whereabouts, please let me know. The son Ed Jr. (to the best of my knowledge) is still living in PA. They are both professional liars and at this point, I would consider them criminals.

This company is also not approved Viking Pool installers.

Do not do business with these crroks.

WARREN, New Jersey

Ed Mara thief

AUTHOR: Ed Mara Thief - ()

This guy and his son are criminals. Most recent company is called USA Pool Depot. He also changes his last name to Maira or Marra. He almost always travels with his son Ed JR. and can be easily recognized because he does not have fingers on the right hand. Please e-mail me your story at EdMara.Thief @ yahoo.com. I'm collecting evidence to press criminal charges against him and his son.

Tropical Pool nightmare.

AUTHOR: Mara victim - (United States of America)

I was ripped off  by Ed Mara Sr & Jr. as well!  Ed Jr.  Promises you the world when giving you an estimate then when under contract, they rip you off. Promised us a free fiber optic pool light, never gave it to us. Left the 8ft. pipe/drain  installed in the ground  uncovered.  Told me the coping for the pool  cost $1600.00, found out from his supplier WaterWorld in NJ..the coping cost only $300.00, which I could have purchased myself.  If he robbed me of $1300.00 for the coping then I know he robbed me on everything he installed.. Left in the middle of the job to go help his father install a pool in SC.

Ed Mara Ripoff Artist Swimming Pools Now.com

AUTHOR: Ed - (United States of America)

Ed Mara is now doing business as Blue Water Fiberglass pools and answers calls from Swimming Pools Now.com as a fronting business.  He still is pulling the same scam described above, get a copy of his license (not another company, but his company) and you will not get one.  Do not do business without a perfomance bond, and a copy of his insurance. 

Any one that has a simialr experience please contact me at (((ROR redacted))) Toggether we can get this guy from perfomeing this scam again.
