A salesman from the so-called company Omega Fencing came to my residence on 21Aug09 trying to get my husband and I to sign a "contract" with them to put up a custom fence. We had already been given quotes from numerous companies and decided to wait ... until now. We decided to go with this company. They seemed very legitimate in the beginning. They initially told us it would take about 2-3 days to put the fence up from start to finish, then that numbered turned into 3-5, then about a week and so on. I was patient the first week, but after that, I was getting aggravated. They would show up around noon to START working, then go to lunch for 2 hours, and come back. They spent a total of about 2-3 hours working. Off and on for the next couple of weeks, I had some confrontational words with the so-called owner TONY MUMFORD. He screwed up the caps/toppers on the fence. They were supposed to be on every other post, but there ended up being 2 next to each other. He NEVER corrected it and he NEVER stained the fence per the agreement. He has blocked both my husbands cell phone and mine and when we try to contact him via another number the phone is turned off and the voicemail is full. Unfortunately, I dont have an address for the company or the owner, TONY MUMFORD so I can't file through small claims court. He has STOLEN our money in full. My husband paid him half up front for materials and half the day before he was supposed to stain it. My husband is a trusting man and didn't think that he would run off with our money without finishing the fence. Our 2 year old son can open the gate and walk into the front yard!! It's not safe. This is a rant, and yet a lesson to all. DO NOT TRUST OMEGA FENCING OR TONY MUMFORD IN THE HINESVILLE AREA. If anyone DOES know an address or a phone number where I can reach him, please post it. We would really appreciate it. I've searched all possible avenues on my end. Thanks everyone!!

Unfortunately it's not. I've called and questioned the company and they have no knowledge of the employee. If I remember correctly, they only do commercial fencing. Thanks for the help though. I appreciate it.

I understand 100% what "Anonomys" is going through. I came across this website, while searching for a legit phone number for Omega Fencing/Anthony Mumford, and I was blown away by the comment. It was the EXACT scenario of our situation. The part that upsets me more is how persistent he was in getting our business (phone calls, house visits), THEN once we made the agreement (paid in full) it was hard to get in contact with him. Overall, the fence looks nice; however, it hasn't been treated and there are no toppers (agreed upon at the beginning). My husband and I are very adamant about getting this work completed, and I will contact you once we locate Mr. Mumford. It is very sad & upsetting to see business' literally steal from honest customers as ourselves, especially when our country's unemployment rate is so high. I really am praying that Mr. Mumford does the honest thing, and finishes a job he agrees to.

ALWAYS ask for a copy of a business license. NEVER pay one cent until the job is completed and inspected - paying for "supplies" up front is a scam. NEVER do business with anyone who does not have a physical street address.
There are a lot of gypsies out there too who will seem as nice as your preacher. They will do nothing but rip you off and case your house for possible burglary once they are let on your property or inside your house.

I recieved a copy of tony mumfords business license. He initally said that it would only take 4 days to do the fence "weather pending" and now its been over a week and he has barely done anything. He been coming here every morning working for 30-45 minutes and then leaving for a few hours and then he comes back and works for 30 minutes and leaves again. He has only gotten the posts up so far! Then this morning he didnt come at all! Im worried that he mighe be leaving town and everytime i call his phone it goes straight to his voicemail WHICH he doesnt even have! My husband and i have also already paid him for the materials which we were ify about doing in the first place! On his business license it says his address is 1101 cherokee ct. statesboro, ga 30458. I dont know if it is HIS address but i typed it into map quest and it is a ligit address. Hope that helps someone. If anyone has any information on how to reach TONY then PLEASE help!

I'm so sorry that you had to go through the EXACT same thing Army Wife. WE STILL haven't heard back from Tony Mumford and we had our project begin on 21 Aug 2009. The fence is up and functional. He promised to finish the toppers and stain it. I'm going to check out the address on file. I was told by the local small claims dept that I couldn't file a claim unless I had a physical address. So I will try this. What phone number do you have? I would like to compare it to mine. Maybe between the two of us we can get this resolved. Thanks!!

Omega Fence is bad news...Anthony Mumgord is a drug addict and scams indivualds out of their money. He always wants th emoney upfront for materials. He did our fence, he put the Omega Fence Sign out in my yard, he never came back to pick it up. The number on the fence belonged to his sister, who had no idea where he was or at least claimed not too. He gave my husband so many lies it was unbelievable.He said he took his daughter fishing and dropped his phone in the water... Right.. Then he said he got surgery done on his eye... He claimed to have sealed the fence.. Not.. we did it ourself.. He put a latch on both doors that was controlled by a piece of white string. needless to say it broke in 2 days.
He always tells people he did our fence and they drive by and think thats his work. It isnt it is American Fence, they cleaned up his mess. Oh, and i forgot to mention he probably doesn't live in statesboro anymore bcause he scammed my neighbor and he said he was moving. Stay awy from him, he is bad news. We have security cameras inside and outside our home. it showed them goofing off, saying things and as someone already stated in and out within 30-45 mins. it took a month, but I was lucky bcause I had pictures of him, I copied his license plate and I had my security cam. Sorry u all got scammed. I wish I wouldve known before now I couldve sent his license plate pic i took, but i dont have it.

[wrong address guys he works and lives in dunlevie road in hinesville. no number. after reading this I ran into him and he was looking very ill. He was wearing a hospital band on his arm. however.after speaking with him he came out the next day and finished my fence. all was left was the toppers and the treatment. otherwise I am very satisfied with my fence and the quality of his work. I think things go wrong when he sends those shiftless guys out to take care of business. I hope he does the right thing by you all as he has us. he stated he is going to finish his jobs it may take a little time so be patient with him everyone. We all know it takes longer to put up a fence than 2-3 days especiallt if you want it done right. I am very happy now.

it's legit but it is not his. I've been there and he does not live there and the owner does not know how to contact him.
