Apr 5, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Courier-Post

The state has filed a lawsuit against home improvement contractors from Pemberton Township alleging they were operating without state registration and failed to perform contracted work. via Courier-Post

After reading Melissa's Bull@#$% comment about Jon Sorrentino, I felt compelled to set the record straight. I feel that Melissa's biased comments are soley based on her personal feelings rather than factual truth. I have known Jon Sorrentino for years. The Sorrentino family has been a prominent part of Pemberton Township history for many years. Her slander & ignorant words pertaining Jon were written on a persoanl level & not on a factual base. Melissa should realize that all charges against Jon are alledged & not factual circumstances. Melissa also forgot that we live in the best country in the world, where one is innocent until proven guilty. She also chose to slander a man that has done much good for the township. Why doesn't Melissa write about the time Sorrentino gave an elderly lady 500$ after reading that she was robbed and lost her money while shopping at the Acme in Browns Mills. Why doesn't Melissa write about Jon's kind hearted mannerisms & selfless charachter that has made him very much liked in the Town of Browns Mills. Why doesn't she mention the fact that his family had the very first restaurant in Town! I could go on and on. Melissa's writings are shallow & rude & are, once again, based on her personal & emotional feelings towards Jon and are without any facts concerning his charachter as a builder or roofer. Why doesn't Melissa write about ALL the people that love his work. She should also mention that Jon has done alot terrific work & that his workamnship has always been of the highest quality. I'd like to end this comment by saying that Mr. Jon Sorrentino is a gentleman & a wonderful person. Let's not forget that all charges against Jon are alleged. I'm sorry to see that Melissa feels so compelled to write about someone who Ive known for years to be of the kindness & most soft hearted personality. I will end this comment by say this to Jon..."..Jon, keep your chin up~!...you will prevail!. And as far as Melissa goes,...Well, her writings speak for itself...RUDE, & IGNORANT!...

Do me a favor, if you don't have anything nice to say than don't say anything at all Melissa. Johns a good person and a good father. He's never taken anything from anyone. I wish people would get their facts straight instead of making things up to say as they go along.

Well this is gonna get alot of people mad ...I worked on a job that hired home improvement contractors to do some work and... they got there money and ran for the hills. Once they were paid they figured there part was done. I personally stood in there building and would not leave till i got paid money they owed me because on phone i was told to go F myself. I was mad as shit went to there office in my big green pick up ( im sure he remembers) and told all in his office to leave because he would not do work once paid or he would not pay for work you do. Long story short i got part money but had to threaten to get it. So sorry it always gets you in the end one way or another. Maybe this will teach all a leason in the future. Karma will get you in the end!!

John Sorrentino. Scum. Fraud. Thief. Liar. I am a North Jersey contractor who made the shortsighted, ignorant and partially informed decision to hire John and his crew. He lied about everything he represented. The first day on the job he was arrested, his crew drank on the jobsite, he left the site a mess, unfinished, actually stole materials from me and tools from his employees and returned them to Home Depot for store credit. He is "married" to a Russin woman in Virginia for the sum of $10,000. He cashes his checks at a check cashing venue in order to avoid paying his judgements. He owes his employees thousands of dollars in backpay, some of which I have paid because they deserve their wages. He gambles thousands and thousands in the AC casino's and never pays his taxes. I gave the guy a shot and he directly cost me over $60k on contracts that were pulled after his fraudulent workmanship. Hire him and lose your shirt... not to mention your reputation. He will eventually end up in jail where he belongs and I intend to be the man to see to it.

NOW I DON'T KNOW YOUR SITUATION...BUT MY HUSBAND CLOSED HIS BUSINESS DOWN BECAUSE HE WAS TIRED OF CHASING MONEY FROM DEAD BEAT CUSTOMERS AND THE LAWS OUT THERE PROTECT THE CONSUMER NOT THE CONTRACTOR...CONTRACTORS ALWAYS GET SCREWED...I KNOW THAT FOR A FACT.

Oh I know...same thing would happen to my husband...people always wanted something for nothing and I would constantly tell him that I knew he didn't want to pass a job up because you never knew when the next one was coming but you can't allow people to take advantage of you...because they sure will...and then...when you demand money for your work that they loved all the while you were doing it...you all of the sudden become this horrible contractor...I tell you ...dead beats...but karma is a beyotch...I am so glad he closed his business down and works a regular 9-5...I worried about him because of all the stress he endured from dead beat customers.

WOW...now if that's true...that's very unfortunate because my husband, who was a contractor for many years but gave it up because of all the loser customers out there...unfornately paid the price because of contractor's like the one you just described...the laws did not protect my husband like they did some of the dead beat customers he had to deal with...

It is true though, unfortunately. I personally know the women that mr_fascecar is talking about. There is a third woman whom John took advantage of by leaving her shutters on crooked, damaging her white deck (though that may be of her own fault), and scratching her screen windows. He also never provided her with her contract, and he charged her more than he would have charged other people because she was so "annoying."

How dare you act like he has never done anything wrong. How can he be a good father, and how can you be a good mother/stepmother? WHat kind of example are you two setting for your kids? I'm sure THEY would like to know about the $120,000 lawsuit that you two earned yourselves. He IS NOT a good person, he lies and cheats like the end of the world is tomorrow.
Since day one at our house, he lied to me. He gave me a fake contract, gave me a fake name and address, as well as cheating us out of our materials, tricking us into paying for items that were on the contract. He didn't pay for ANYTHING, and he acted like nothing was ever wrong. He STILL hasn't done our door, and he miscounted one window, and he also removed our gutter that he promised us from our contract. He also lied to us about the windows, using a price for a more expensive line and giving us a cheaper line. We even caught him every step of the way, and he continued to act like nothing was wrong. And, this is the best part: the last day he came into our house and asked us for $9600 MORE without having finished the project! When we refused, he went on a rant and started punching his truck. He is a beggar, who cried that night (December 23, 2010) to try and coax us out of another sum of money. There are witnesses too, so don't even try to tell me he didn't.
It is sad that you pretend like he's so brave. It's even sadder that when the woman he ripped off called him back, he gave her the "my kids didn't get any christmas presents because you didn't pay me the EXTRA $9,600 I had asked you for" run around. I assume you wrote that sheet out, Erin, because that wasn't John's handwriting. You two are both crooks.
How can someone just take $7000 from someone and not do work? How can he charge someone more money because she was "annoying?" How can John leave to see his Russian bride? How can John treat the other woman who paid him MORE THAN HIS CONTRACT STATED because he asked to pay his workers, whom HE DID NOT PAY THAT DAY, that way? They all (yes, they- 3 different people) trusted him! He obviously took that as a sign of weakness and cheated all three of them.

He owes his workers money, most of whom are going OUT OF STATE to try to find work so they can make the money that he owes him.

I just have one question, Erin. Your address is 33 Phlox Street right? Expect your second lawsuit soon.
