Wayne Campbell claims hes Owner of Pro Arbor Concepts, tree cutting/removal service business. 

He doesn't have any of the requirements to own and run a business in Alabama or Florida. 

The equipment he brings and operates are very dangerous, he has none of the legal requirements to operate equipment and drive vehicles, no drivers license or insurance. 

He brings random felons with with him, no training or experience. Wayne is a convicted felon, currently charges pending trial.

 We met Wayne a couple years ago, he came to buy motorcycle parts from me. He said he had a tree business, I asked his advice on a tree we needed cut back, already got a couple quotes. He said he could do it $5-800, it was dark. I told him to come back when light and talk to my bf, he's been dealing with it.  We had been quoted that amt, bf thinks too much, I can see the tree could be potentially dangerous, if he could come explain this, we agreed on a time the following day, Wayne didn't show up when he said, didn't hear from him. It was after dark, he shows up,  I was confused, how he was going to give a quote in dark, introduced him to bf, short time later, I  heard cutting, I didn't know what was going on, after Wayne left, my bf paid him $1000 & agreed to paint his motorcycle.

We talked and realized, he manipulated us. Wayne told me a lower price, I told him we couldn't afford, but would like a honest opinion, how long can we wait, if limb breaks, it could go through roof of our shop.

I went back in the house bf said he'd talk to him and set up a time to come back in the day. Bf said Wayne started position his bucket truck and cutting, Wayne told bf, he was here to cut the tree, already talked to me about it.

We were separated and Wayne played us, then after he was done, wanted to be paid $1300.

We didnt have it, gave him $1000 & difference in painting his bike parts. Wayne showed up on time to drop his parts off, then started harassing me everyday, were his parts painted.

Wayne did a really good job on the tree, i didn't realize he still needed cut a couple limbs and clean up limbs. 

He ended up giving me half the money back for motorcycle parts, several weeks later he showed up to finish the tree and we had already done the clean up.

We didn't like how he manipulate us and made sure he couldn't do it again. He made friends with my bf and I also friended him. When he finally got here, he would do the agreed work, try to manipulate us, but we were aware and didn't allow it anymore . I didn't like that quality about him, he had some other bad habits, but his work was good and we felt we could trust him, I felt he just hasn't been around good people, he feels hes on defensive all time. He will realize we are honest, good people and he doesn't have to be on defensive. I've realized, giving him the benefit of doubt was a mistake. 

In the past 6 months, his behavior is weird, his work not finished. As a friend I could see he's going through something, I tried to understand. He called about 6 months ago, needed money, asked if I had anything he could do. I reminded him he owed me $160, I had not heard from him in months and I was upset, he agreed to work off the $160, I agreed pay him $200 I needed some electric cable run outside for lights. Took him several days to do a couple hours job, showed up after dark, was cold. My bf has to fix it, he ran everything, but plug wouldn't work. 

In past 6 months, I've learned he doesn't have a license, he's running his business illegal and unprofessional and I witnessed him manipulating another couple, over charging them.

He started a job, only did a quarter, left a big mess of materials and our tractor way out on property. He asked to borrow our trailer.i needed to call my bf to ask him, while I was calling, Wayne started to connect our trailer to his truck. I got off phone and my bf said no he could not, he took the pins out of ramps for trailer and they are lost. I didn't know he did that, my bf came home and needed trailer, thank God he checked Ramps, because he would have been driving down road and ramps slid out, could have killed people and himself. 

I called Wayne asked him to come over ASAP and find the pins for ramps and how upset I was. This was a big deal and we trusted him on our property, bf could have really been in a dangerous situation. I didn't understand why he would mess with trailer until I got an answer about borrowing it.

Wayne has not even addressed his actions could have caused us a very bad situation. 

Wayne didn't come to find the ramp pins, he had told me to shut up about the ramps he's tired of hearing me b***h about it.

The final straw, a few weeks ago, bf made a deal to trade him out motorcycle for 2 of his vehicles, a truck and a car.

Bf went to pick up the car, followed Wayne to an address, when got there he couldn't get in the gate. It was dark. We were going on vacation in 2 days, if Wayne wanted the  bike, we needs to get the vehicles before we leave.

We weren't able to get the car, but Wayne said we could meet the next morning, it's on a friend's property, they will be awake. Bf agreed to allow him to take the bike, I didn't like it, but Wayne told bf he got his license fixed.

Bf went to meet Wayne in am, he waited almost 3 hours, Wayne phone service cut off, no one came. I called Wayne gf, he answered I told him he needed to call bf and get it figured out, we were leaving in morning.

Wayne didn't call, we had to leave the next morning for 2 weeks, leave our $5000 motorcycle with him, had no choice but deal with it when we get back.

Wayne didn't call or text, nothing regarding the deal he made with my bf. I text him, he responded with some craziness, Wayne accused me of owing him money for work he did, sent me and bf several cash app requests for different amounts.

It's crazy, because we don't owe him and at that point he has our bike and we don't have vehicles, he owes us. Kept sending money requests the whole vacation, but nothing about our bike and getting cars.

Wayne messaged me, he needed $300, then we could pick up our bike or the vehicles, but not until he had $300.

I'm totally confused and no longer feel we are dealing with a balanced, sane person. We got back and I immediately wanted to get our bike, anything could have happened to it. I spoke with his gf, she told me he lied, no license, we told him not to drive bike, it's not his until we have the cars, Wayne text he he would keep it parked. He was driving it everyday.

Bf went to get the bike, it wasn't were Wayne said, it took a could hours, but his last 2 gf aret happy with him and helped me locate where he was hiding the bike and we were able to recover it.

Wayne told several people we owe him money and it was his plan all along to take it for money he was owed.

He never planned to meet bf and trade for vehicles. Just stall, knowing we were leaving. He apparently does this on a regular basis to everyone he can take advantage of.

I've been in contact with the police and I've agreed to be a witness at his pending hearing, it's a theft case. I'm gathering witness statements and text messages, as soon as I have it all together, we are filing charges for extortion, and other criminal charges and a small claims case. 

The bike has some damage and fir the miles he put on it, and replacing the ramp pins almost $100. We had to hire someone to undo the work he started on our barn, take it down. Then start over and do it correctly. 

I'm reporting him here and better business bureau and every where I can. 

Wayne is no longer welcome here and if he comes here, I will call the police. My bf and I started talking and realized all the different things he told each of us, we don't believe anything he says is true. He is a lyer. 

Wayne is running his tree business, it very dangerous. All his equipment needs repair.

Wayne needs to be shut down, someone is going to get hurt and I hope it's not a customer or their property, Wayne has no money or insurance. 

Wayne also owns a small 4 plex, he rents 3 and lives in 1. It's not safe and he won't fix.

We are new to this area, we didn't know about cutting trees, ect. I've learned from code compliance, there's a class need to be renewed ever year tibe certified to run a tree cutting business, also all employees need certified. Insurance is required, business license, equipment have different requirements, but there is a safety standard, need to be registered and must have a legal driver's license to drive a bucket truck requires an additional license.

If something goes wrong, a tree kills someone or lands o

n house or other personal property. People who are hiring him have no idea, just like we didn't. We should have asked to see certification and business license #, ect.

There is also a few calculatiors online to find out how much it should cost to cut a particular tree, prices vary depending on type of tree, size, ect. Our tree should have been $500-1000. Not $1300.

I just found your site and will be using it from now on before I do any business with anyone 

Thank you
