I need to get the word out that this local man, John Parsons, is a thief and a liar. If you do business with him be prepared to lose your money like I did.

I contracted Parsons, working under the name of J.Samuel Custom Homes, and his parter at the time, Matt Butler, to build a home four years ago. He failed to pay the sub-contractors, work was slow or not at all and the subs came to me for payments for work that I had already paid Parsons for. The circle goes around and around. To make it worse, after 15 months of pure Hell, I had to borrow money against my unfinished house to get my house completed. Bottom line, Parsons took me (a retired senior) and my disabled wife for more than $390,000 of which I have to pay back each month or lose my house. I have exausted my retirement fund and now we must sell the house or go into bankruptsy. I filed suit and got a judgment from the court but it is nothing more than a piece of paper since Parsons is a bum and doesn't own real estate or have a real job or a bank account. He used to answer his phone and make promises to me to pay but he now won't even answer his phone.

Why am I telling your this? I hope to save someone else from being ripped off by John Parsons. He's out there bumming off anyone that will give him work. Trust me, you will get ripped off too if you do business with this man. He is a low down lying heartless thief....period. If anyone knows his location or phone, please send it to me via this forum. Thanks.

I'm sorry about your unfortunate situation regarding your contractor and his sub-contractors. I too am building a house. However, I was advised to have each contractor sign a release of lien after each payment or draw. This will protect me if the contractor fails to pay his sub-contractors. I wish you and your wife well.
