Should have googled him BEFORE you gave him money. Some of life's experiences are expensive.

Be carefull posting this stuff with store names, you know how the law defends all because it's a law.

I am tempted to post one on Best Buy, check services "telecheck" but it's not worth it.

And I will even give Best Buy credit, that store aint bad at all.(long story, but all good)

He calls himself A-1 for a reason. He is first in the yellow pages and gets more calls.

He really sticks it to the elderly too. He has a 'F' rating with the Better Business Bureau, and many parts stores won't sell to him around town because he has such a bad reputation.

Yellow Pages .com has one review on this company; NOT good. Maybe someone should call Henry Erb at WOOD TV.

I did a reverse look-up of the phone number in the yellow pages. It is listed as "unpublished". There is also no address listed in the yellow pages.

Perhaps we should all call him and ask him to help us with an imaginary appliance at an imaginary place on the other side of town.

Same issue. He came out charged me $50 for service call and 15 min service and all he did was talk to me and write down the numbers from my washing machine. Didn't even look at the washing machine. Was suppose to call me back after he researched it, I called him twice and he never called back. Total SCAMMER

Boy I could use the $195 he scamed off of me for not fixing my oven. Where's Henry Erb?

Don't bother with Henry Erb. You will never track this guy down. He moves around alot and has quite a habit. Between going to jail for non payment of child support (big shock) and rehab, you will be wasting your time and even more money.

What a nightmare this guy was. No address, no return calls unless you call from a number he doesn't recognize. Took our money and removed a part that didn't have to be removed. Oven still didn't work. Report him, is there something we can do about having him in the yellow pages?

This guy tried to scam us to. But when he didn't show up and didn't call us back, we called our bank and even though the check was cashed they were able to put a return check or stop payment ( I forget what the bank called it) and we got our money back.

No way I would pay in advance, until I test it myself before they leave the house.

Why are you people so gullable. seriously.

He's a bigot too - gives discounts if you are the same religion as he is. Otherwise the price is higher.

I Can't believe what a total unprofessional scam artist this guy is.
Charged my husband and I a big fee just to come and see our washer and fridge. We paid him for "fixing " the washer and then it broke a couple of weeks later , same problem , it never sounded the same anyway , it was never really fixed. He took extra money for the fridge to "order" the part,, and this is where we have never ever heard from him again. He won't return our calls , when we call from a different number , he picks up and then says he'll be over at a certain time , then no shows . I finally looked up his business name and found out how he has scammed all of you too. The funny thing is.. I always usually look up every single thing , just to make sure about scams.. This is the one time I didn't. Of course.

Please be aware that my cousin Henry is a real dirt digger who needs to apply the old adage that if you can't say something nice about someone, say nothing at all.
