Complaint Review: Trio On The Bay
Trio On The Bay DOES NOT PAY CONTRACTORS FOR WORK PERFORMED & STEALS!!! Miami Beach Florida
BEWARE of Trio On The Bay AKA - Bayfront Hospitality and Barry Smith (owner).
Trio On The Bay DBA Bayfront Hospitality Group at 1601 79th Street Causeway, North Bay Village and its owner Barry Smith hired my company, had us work for months and never paid us plus breach of contract. Tried stealing from my company by having a 3rd party designer contact us, threaten us to give all the files or suffer the consequences.
Presently, Trio On The Bay owes us the following:
$3,583.68 for work performed 1/1/13 - 2/28/13. This includes a 3% monthly late fee (as per contract) thru 6/1/13. $
I have an agreement which says that client is also responsible for all legal and collection fees necessary to collect in Miami-Dade County.
I sent Mr. Smith various outstanding notices, received numerous emails (still have them) to come and get payment. Each time I went, they refused to pay and last time made a mockery by bringing a lawyer and telling me to Cease and Desist: to give them the website domain and all files and in one month they would give me $2,000 flat check by mail - which is absurd as he was laughing when he said that. Even his manager, which is an accountant off site Jim Richards had a third party contact me to threaten me to give him all the company's files without receiving payment. That third party person and Mr. Richards yelled at me, humiliated me and said if I didn't give them my files that I would personally suffer the consequences.
Caution: Trio On The Bay has done this to many managers and employees, vendors and clients. If you are thinking about hosting a large event there, please also note that they have stolen client's deposits and not provided the services hired for. BEWARE!!!
