BEWARE:  Lawrence Bruce Smith (Southland Drywall) is a convicted criminal and a fraud.

On March 9th, 2015 we completed a written contract with Lawrence Bruce Smith (Bruce) of Southland Drywall of Spring, TX.  On March 9th, we wire transferred $14,000 to Bruce Smith to complete the agreement.  Bruce then formulated a series of excuses making himself unavailable.  His excuses included; general sickness, a broken tooth, and diverticulitis. Bruce then disappeared completely keeping our money and not fulfilling his part of the contract.  We filed criminal charges against him and had him arrested.  Do not send this man any money.
