Does anybody know lary Owens. He dropped a tree on my house and prior to performing the job he provided me with a fake document claiming he had insurance which I now know he does not. He knocked on my door one day and claimed to be a licensed tree service and offered me a cheap price to perform some work. He showed up with just a girl the first day and halfway through the day asked for gas money said he lost his wallet. Being Christian man that I am I landed him thirty dollars. I didn't see him for four days. When he returned he dropped a fifty foot Penn oak on my house. I watched him and some girl rush to pack up there stuff and leave completely ignoring me as tried to stop them. I estimate 20,000 in damages. If anybody knows how to get ahold of him please let me know.

I know lary Owens. I made the mistake of paying up front for a pine tree and I haven't seen him since. I Too would like to see him. He messed with the wrong person. He drives a white Dodge ram lifted up. He is a door to door scam artist.

I have known lary Owens for over twenty years. He really used to be an Allright guy until he got on the crank cocaine. . I'm not sticking up for him but what we're you thinking Mr. Everyday Joe giving him the money up front. I'm sure he offered you a really cheap price. He probably told u whatever you wanted to hear. Next time wise up. No money up front. And be happy he didn't drop nothing on your house like he did ripped off up there

I know its hindsight, but you should have used a reputable company in the area like Kidders or Blacks Tree service. They have both been around for 30+ years. have you contacted your insurance company I would think they would cover the damages.I don't know of Mr Owens but you cant get blood out of a turnip sad to say your probably wasting your time here.You might contact the better business bureau they may have records on him.Good luck friend

I actually had kidders and blacks do an estimate and they told me an outrageous amount to remove the tree. I with LLS Tree services. They supplied me with 20 something references and gave me paperwork on there insurance company so that I could call and verify. And they did it for half the price kidders and blacks estimated.

LLS Tree services did a professional job for me at a reasonable price. Nobody else will trim trees. Some of the more reputable tree services have become entirely to greedy with their pricing.

Sounds to me like you had plenty of chances to get a good description of his vehicle and the license plate . The old saying if it is too good to be true it usually is...You get what you pay for...you would not have been in this position if you had used better judgment and hired Blacks or Kidder's. Let this be a lesson and hopefully you and everyone else has learned from your stupidity... I hate to see d.u.m..b a..sse.s come on to this forum and announcing to the world how retarded they actually are.
I hope I was able to help you...

Did any of you report this activity to the WV Insurance Commission? If they offered a Certificate of Insurance that was fraudulent., they should be investigated for additional criminal activity. I guarantee there are more VICTIMS out there.

I just recently got my trees topped and trimmed by a man with LLS tree services named Matt. Very tall man. Well anyways while the men were working away I was in my home cleaning and looked out my pantry window and seen one of the workers using a needle in his arm! Seeing that I was scared to death. I reported it to my son in law who is with the narcotics task force for wood County. After reading all of this I will be going with Kramer who is my usual for my trimming. Gosh what has this world came to?

Why would you chastise someone that obviously has been victimized enough? Not everyone is from your "worldly generation". Some are very trusting to those that present themselves as worthy of that trust. They do business on a Gentleman's Handshake. This thief should be reported to the Attorney General's Office, and he should be reported to the local police. They should charge him with Obtaining under False Pretense, and possible Elder Abuse. That "Southern Comfort" you offered, may help your nasty disposition.
