(All pre-COVID interactions)
I hired this creep to installs some new services to add in my home that was completed many years ago, With a growing business and family and the need for more electricity, I thought I would go with a friends' recommendation - I should NOT have done that! Worst idea in many years for me.
After my divorce, I decided to up the services in an addition that was initially for my family, but have recently redone it to move my office into the home.
I contacted Frank Deutsch for electrical services, he returned my call after I left him numerous voice mails, only when I mentioned my friend did I get a call back (Red Flag #1!)
He arrived, a week late to start the walkthru (Flag #2!). We agreed on the price, timeframe, completion dates, etc, I paid a deposit, signed all the paperwork, and was (Happy?).
The start date comes and goes with no word form Frank (Flag #3!). A week, then two, then there, finally I have someone knocking on my door one morning at 6:15 AM. Lo and behold, it's Frank, looking to start the job. Some BS story about his daughter being ill. (I found out later, he has no daughter, and had used this excuse with many others that he cheated.)
He claimed he had to do a walk-thru again since he "Knows" he missed some things. Not my first race folks, I let him do his walkthru, knowing full well that my estimate pricing is about to go thru the roof.)
Surprise (Flag #4, #5, & #6), the price went up, not a few, not a few hundred, but by $4500 (Yes Fourth Five Hundred Bucks!) He claims it is all permitting and other administrative costs, and that he submitted a proposed project plan with Mout Laurel (NEVER DID!), and that they made changes that will cost me most fo the extra money. I never signed, told him to get the hell out, and thought that was the end of it, silly me, serial conmen rarely give up that easy. I asked for and never received my deposit when I told Frank that I was canceling the contract and demanded a refund for nonstart of the project.
Cue the weeks-long intimidation campaign against me, my ex-wife, my kids, my employees, and even my neighbors... Angry phone calls, belligerent emails, straight out threatening and scar texts, questionably legal drivebys of my and my ex-wife's homes to intimidate me into dropping the matter and never getting a refund.
At this point, the matter is going to the courts. It took weeks to locate his current office, none of the ones on his estimate, card, or internet listing is correct, one is even his house. 2 addresses in Cherry hill, 1 in Berlin, another in Marlton, this guy seems to change his address whenever the temp starts to creep up on him.
Have a retraining order from Burlington County to keep him and his henchmen away from me and my family, and will be looking into civil avenues as well.
Bottom line: Do not hire Frank Deutsch, he is a creepy con artist that preys on people and then intimidates them. If you do hire Frank Deutsch ELectriuc, he is your problem then, you have been fairly warned.
