Complaint Review: Jim McAlister Pro-Tek Pools, Inc. - Boynton beach Florida
Jim McAlister Pro-Tek Pools, Inc. Jim McAlister Pro-Tek Pools Cool Pools LLC Jims Cool Pools JWM Avation Inc Dominique Ramirez Jim's Pool Service Pro-Tek & Jim Ripped Us OFF 100%. DON'T Trust anything this "Nice Guy Act" tells you. Boynton beach Florida
We are a Family with two little children RIPPED OFF 100%.
Pro-Tek, Inc. / Jim McAlister is a ripp off artist. Please do not believe one single thing he says.
He stole over $13,000.00 and we still have an empty ditch in our back yard. You can call me 561-352-6967. He has every excuse in the book.
He got a lawyer rather than facing us like a professional to tell us he is incapable of doing the job. --
He dug part of a ditch and attempted to lay some concrete block for the sunshelf. It was the only thing he managed to build with sub-contractors. When I learned the concrete block had no footers (foundational support) and was built not even to the correct dimensions on the plans, I called him (he had some b.s. story), so I had to contact the city in charge of our permitted build. They told Jim to cure his error/problem. Jim in writing agreed to demo the only work he managed to do. Then he never came back, abandonded the job, got a lawyer and has been trying to figure out how to not pay us the amount he stole (since he only dug a hole, he is not entitled to the $13k SEEMS OBVIOUS).
CRIMINAL. IT IS FRAUDULENT!! He even asked his lawyer how bankruptcy (which he has done before apparently) might benefit him. PLEASE DON'T TRUST A THING THIS "NICE GUY ACT" TELL YOU.
To sum it up, here is one last stroy from our year long odyssey/nightmare:
When Jim got his bulldozer stuck for the second time in the whole he dug (which by the way a bulldozer is the wrong tool for this job, you need an excavator) he told us, after it being stuck sitting there for 2 weeks, with no activity I might add; that if he could not pull it out, that he would have to BURY IT BELOW THE POOL!! Talk about incompetent! INSANE! environmental hazard also!
My wife had to show him the method by which he could dig out the dozer... That was the last we ever saw of Jim...
His best excuse was to try to tell us there was faulty soil conditions. Funny our soil report said we were fine and so did at least 7 other pool builders. Some of which have offered to be expert witnesses for free because they said that GUYS LIKE THIS GIVE THEIR INDUSTRY A BAD NAME... this is our family's whole truth.

Certainly we are reporting to the BBB, County and State licensing divisions, but we want to get this to you the next one he may try to defraud.
