My husband, Marvin, has Alzheimer's disease. This is clearly obvious to anyone dealing with him. Mr. Stollery, owner of Canal Town Electric was doing business across the street @ the home of his aunt, Laurie Stollery. Mr. husband asked him to come over and put a florescent light bulb in one of our ceiling fixtures. After looking at the fixture, he quoted $100 and indicated that we were lucky that the house did not burn down--which was an exaggeration--which clearly upset my husband.
When the job was finished, he charged $200 which my husband paid by check on an account that he was not authorized to use--his name was not on the check--only my name is on the checking account. My husband called me @ work and told me. I called Mr. Stollery and left a message for him to call me immediately--he did not.
When we called him that evening @ 5:30 p.m. and asked that the check be held until there were funds in the account, he said he would hold the check until the 1st of February. The next day @ 6:30 a.m. when checking the account on line, I found that he had already cashed the check.
There are several problems--first of all he had to realize that he was dealing with someone who did not have complete metal capabilities. Secondly, he quoted $100, charged $200...and thirdly he lied when he said he would hold the check--as he well knew, he had already cashed and illegal check. I also find it very unprofessional for him to alarm my 78 year old husband by telling him our home could have burned down. The fixture in question had been installed in 1996 by a reputable electrician who did all new wiring, etc, in our home when we had a terrible house fire.
