Ahhh Mr. Paver.$13,000 possibibly for a job done right. You being in the industry would know that the job couldn't be done for $6,100 and if you made the people believe that they were getting a first hand job and knew that you were just selling "snake oil", you too would be guilty of fraud. Bill H, you are right. There are Scottish, English and Rom Travelers too. But, it is the Irish Travelers who are operating in NM at this point or at least that is who has been identified. This group is from a place just outside Houston, Tx. Go figure Mr. Paver. Want more info.. enter "Irish Travelers" as key words on the net to find out more

But I can't beleave that it looks as good today as 5 years ago and its still here I kind of feel bad that I never paid them but I found out you get what you pay four and I really did in this case.

How about we actually catch a few and make examples of them...Dont send 1 of them to prison.
Make them do the job with their own money with sheriffs present while their in shackles and let the media show it on live national TV.

Lets bring back the chain gang for these people so they learn the value of good old fashioned HARD LABOR.

Google "George Stanley paving scam". This guy apparently does not know when to stop. They ought to lock him up before he beats an old lady to death who refuses to pay him.
