Richard Wright of Exterior Home Design Quitman Texas sat at our table and took 4250.00 from us on 6-3-10 for 1/2 down on a siding job for our home. He never started the job and has never refunded our money which we have asked for many times. We checked with the BBB before hiring him and he had a A- rating which has now been changed to an F and his company has now been revoked by the BBB. We are now aware of several prople in Odessa and Andrews Texas that he has also scammed. We hope that he is caught soon and made to refund the money he has stolen from us. HOMEOWNERS BEWARE!!

It really does suck that you were screwed out of money but that's why you don't EVER pay a contractor before the job is done. I don't care if he sat at your table, drank your coffee, ate your donuts and shook your hand...you don't ever pay someone for work that hasn't been finish. I thought that was common sense?

And for future reference, the ratings the BBB give should not be taken too seriously. It has been proven that they give good ratings for people who pay and poor ratings for those who don't. Saw a story on the news about it. http://www.kltv.com/Global/story.asp...

Thank you for your comment. R.C. Wright was the first person we had ever hired to do any work on our home. We are honest people and do have common sense and we just trusted him to do what he said he would. In Odessa we had contacted several people before hiring R.C. and they all asked for 1/2 down so we assumed that was common practice. We have learned a very valuable lesson from this, I can promise you and it will never happen to us again and I truly hope he is held liable for what he has done to us and to others like us.

Well I was scammed also, I am a painter and mud man and did work for him. He payed some but still owes me $1600.00. It really is sad that these people are out there, not only screwing homeowners but proffesionals like me that do the work.

He ripped us off too. He even threatened us with his mother. Said "She likes to shoot people". He ripped off one of the guys that was working on our house, also.. somewhere around $5000. I hope they get this guy (and his wife!). Today we got an apologetic type letter claiming he was going to make things right. Return address: Nuevo Laredo,Mexico. Did anyone else get one of these letters?

We also got the letter from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. It is a copy, if you will notice, and I know another homeowner in Odessa Texas that received the exact letter. I had a similiar letter from him saying he was going to make things right in December 2010. To date, he has taken 4250.00 from us and has done NOTHING on our home. The only thing I want from him at this point is a check for 4250.00. We trusted this man to do siding on our home and he scammed us out of our hard earned money....!!!!

Well I know (chris) and his family (not the wife) and I must say this does not surprise me. I have a daughter by him and to date he has NEVER paid child support. She is currently 27yrs old. She had, yes I said HAD, a trust fund set up by her great grandpa (of a quite sizeable amount), and Chris being the great father that he is spent or squandered every last penny. Unfortunately we will never get the money that is owed to us. So I hope those he stole from can get some sort of restitution. However, I doubt that will ever happen.

I just googled Richard Christensen Wright's name and found that he was arrested on 8-6-11 and placed in the Kaufman County Jail!!!!!!!!!!FINALLY!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!He has changed his appearance but cutting off his hair and he grew a gray beard! His mugshot also pops up when you google his name!! He can change his appearance but the deceit in his eyes will forever be there. Hopefully now, he will be held responsible to face his victims and give us back our hard earned money that he scammed from us!!

I am also a victum in this situation due to Chris, r.c. Wright, Richard Wright. No matter what you want to call him its all the same lying face. I also know the wife michelle wright and yes from what I'm told they've gotten divorced after he abandoned her and went on the run from the law. I feel so sorry for that poor women getting dragged into his mess because from what ive read and heard from several this isn't the first time mr.wright has been convicted of the exact crime and put in prison for it and tried to drag down a previce wife at that time down with him to. Also r.c has been moved to crane tx and possibly maybe be bonding out, don't ask me how or why they would even let a man like that out but they have set a bond so we'll see if that's were everyones hard earned money goes too..

Sincerely pissed off victim

I have known Michelle and her family for years. She had know ideal what RC was doing he lied to her so much about everything. When he went on the run he left her without anything he left her holding the bag.He is now sending her letters from jail telling her she better watch what she says. Now he is sending her 70 year old Mother letters tell her she better make sure her daughter choices wisely. What kind of man would do that. He is getting desperate.

Oh, please! Maybe Michelle was innocent at first, but when I was dealing with them, she was right in there with him. In fact, I spoke with her alone several times, and she would look me right in the eye and lie just as RC did. She wasn't so innocent when she was cashing those checks, was she?

RC was sentenced to 16 months in state jail on Nov 30, 2012. Was wondering if anyone knows what has happened to Michelle..or where she has ended up. She was no innocent angel in this whole thing. We gave her plenty of chances to come clean. She was more interested in trying to con us out of more money. Always coming over asking for even more $'s! She didn't appear to have the foggiest idea of what the truth was. And she seemed to be quite happy during all those parties they threw with everyone's money.
