We try to tell people. Get a free estimate. Don't sign for anything regardless of what anyone says. Free means just that FREE. Then look at your proposal. Is there a company name and address?
Stop by,or check yahoo maps as to where they are located.Is there a landline or is it
a cell. Do they have a City licenses to do your project?
Do they have a website you can look at their work. After all it's your money.

I was taken for $5600 by a contractor but I was told I had to file a civil case since he did some work. I contacted the BB, the Attorney General and filed a police report. The detective told me that if the person even drops off material you can not press charges. Since this has happened the contracter is now homeless somewhere. I am out the money and raising my 3 grandchildren on my salary. My house is fallin apart and I have to come up with the money AGAIN to get the work done!$5600 is a LIFE savings for me.
This same guy came to our house to do some fence work several years ago. After taking our check he didn't show up for a month. So we canceled the check and called the police and the BBB. We contacted the AGs office and they said that they couldn't do anything since we had canceled the check. I think the folks at the AGs office just wanted to get us off the phone. If only they would've investigated way back then...

CALL US SUCKERS IF YOU WISH. MY HUSBAND AND I LOST CLOSE TO $7000 TO THIS SCUM BAG. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT - JEREMY ADAMS IS NOT JUST A CON / THEIF / ETC. HE IS A PRO AT WHAT HE DOES. HE KNOWS WHAT IT TAKES TO GET HIS NEXT "HIT" OF HEROINE. OUR INCIDENT HAPPENED ALMOST THREE YEARS AGO, I SPENT A GOOD 6 MONTHS TRYING TO GET THE AUTHORITIES IN UNION AND CHAMPAIGNE COUNTIES TO LISTEN TO ME. I HAD A LOT OF RESEARCH ON THIS IDIOT TO HAND OVER TO THEM - NAMES AND NUMBERS - BUT I STILL DID NOT GET ANY WHERE. NOT TO SOUND DISRESPECTFUL - BUT SHAME ON OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR ALLOWING JEREMY TO GET AWAY WITH THIS FOR SO LONG!!
TO THE GENTLEMAN WHO CALLED JEREMY OUT OF THE YELLOW PAGES - I HOPE THAT WASN'T RECENT. THEY TOLD ME THREE YEARS AGO - THAT ADAMS DID NOT PAY FOR HIS AD - SURELY THEY WOULDN'T POST IT AGAIN!!!
SORRY TO ALL OF YOU WHOM HAD THE UNFORTUNATE PRIVILEDGE AS MY HUSBAND AND I DID - TO MEET JEREMY ADAMS. HE WILL GET HIS PUNISHMENT!!

That sucks. So are they going to auction off his tools or vehicle to help his victims recoup some of that money?

I too was taken by Jeremy Adams. He put a flier in the door. He seemed toknow what he was talking about. And he took me for about $7500.00. Everything he touched had to be fixed and finished. He had done more damage to the house then what was there before he started. It cost me an additional $25000.00 to fix and finish what he had messed up!! I hope I can go and sit in the court room during his trial. I want him to go away for a very long time. I feel his wife is also a part of this!!!!!!!

I don't believe Jeremy Adams owns any tools, vehicle, etc. He "hired" other sub-contractors to do the actual work - with their own tools. He also had them drive him to the job sites. In 2007 - during our incident - his drivers license was suspended. Of course we didn't find that out until one of the workers admitted it to us!!!
Another lesson learned - check their drivers license.

This guy is not sorry and will never pay restitution to anyone unless it is his drug dealer. He has been doing this for too long. Of course maybe just now with heroine but I am sure it was cocaine and maybe crack before that. So quit the boo hoo I am a heroine addict crap and let him get what he deserves. Most people do not know how contractors work. I recently had my roof replaced and was a nervous wreck about how we were supposed to do this. ie do we pay them some or half before he starts or do we pay all after he is done? Fortunatley I found a great local roofer who was honest and didn't ask for one penny until he was done. I guess what I am saying is these people may sound like "suckers" (like someone else posted) but I don't beleive that. They are intelligent probably too caring people this predator fed on. To steal from these people is just unexcusable.

I hope he has fun in Orient I here it is lovely this time of year.

I AGREE THAT HE IS A CROOK. I AM TIRED OF PEOPLE MAKING EXCUSES FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR. HE MADE A CHOICE TO FEED HIS DRUG HABIT INSTEAD OF BEING A RESPONSIBLE MEMBER OF SOCIETY AND COMPLETING THE JOBS HE WAS CONTRACTED TO DO. PUT HIM AWAY FOREVER - THEN SEE HOW HE TRIES TO FEED HIS HABIT!

I have to agree with you. The best drug rehab facility is a prison.
