fyi scammed at 52 and a homeowner......never, ever, do business with someone that knocks on your door unsolicited. i am surprised the salesmen didn't just cash the insurance checks themselves, cutting the crooks out of their cut. this is a monster that the insurance companies created. american shingle is just one of the roofing companies perpetrating this fraud. you always get what you pay for. both american shingle and the insurance companies grossly under price what a properly installed, warrantied, supervised roofing job should cost.

Well you guys just weren't very smart. I run the same kind of business as these guys do, but I actually complete the work with a 5 year warranty. First all, never give a check with months to go before the roof is going to be put on. I personally don't except the first check until the roof is loaded, and my crew is out front ready to start. I do have guys knocking on peoples door, and just because someone knocks on your door, doesn't mean that they are all bad. Just be more careful, I can't believe that there were this many people that fell for their bull crap. Now I will gaurentee that I will have problems in the future, because of these jackasses. I mean look at forrest gump over here, now he'll never trust someone that knocks on his door. This is a terrible thing that happened, but don't take it out on the rest of us that make a living this way.

Same thing happened to me!!!! They had so many people scammed into believing they are a real company. I even left a message with a guy in Atlanta to see if I could cancel my contract and he never called me back. They said it would take 2 months to install the roof which my friends had theirs installed within a week. I signed my insurance check of $4000 over to them. Something needs to be done. Also, does anyone have the number to the secret service man that is working on this case?

I've lost a lot of money with American Shingle. My roof is not fixed and it is leaking very badly, it's in bad shape. All I want is my money back so I can get it fixed. Can someone tell me how to get it back.

These guy's will soon be back in business under a new name. Mr.Dunco is nothing bu a BUNCO operation.
There's money to be made in this business, and he will not let it go to another. Just give him time. He's going to make sure there's nothing left for the police or feds to get. And as far as lawsuits...ZERO.
Red flags began to show when they were unable to meet payroll, and pay his suppliers. Many of his suppliers saw this coming.

They are holding an insurance claim check of mine worth $3700; supposed to have installed the roof for me on August 27th 2010.
I believe law and order should seize their assets; and give back refunds from customers.

My son-in-law said when they deposited those checks;the bank they put them in, took them and did it illegaly, without mortgage signatures; he believes the bank that took them is held accountable and may have to pay out and make good those checks; not sure who their bank is.

don't live in TN (GA), but same problem. Paid money and recvd no services, continued to get extended dates to my services until the news announced in Aug on their financial situation.... Don't have funds to go contract with someone else as this was an insurance claim (damage) and also have pending interior work (black mold in some area). would love to receive updates on this from your area and any recommendations ([email protected]).

We have been scammed for 4300.00, I told my husband I had a bad feeling, I feel bad for him and everyone else that got scammed. I had called the BBB and they gave them a c rating because they not been in business very long, in this part of AL.
My husband told he would handle it, so rather than a argument I went along with it. But as far as all of the people saying that you should not pay until the work is finished, that is not the way three other bids we got after the fact, they wanted money up front also. And these business's are all A rated by BBB. I have never liked the BBB now I know why. I agree that Bunko should be arrested and check all off shore accounts I am sure that is were our money is. He had filed for Bankruptcy in north GA. I have been told that everyone should file a claim with the Bankruptcy court in North Ga.
You can get info. on the internet for the court.
Let us all pray that justice will be done.

Hold up, they a good company. They put a new roof on my house for 4976.34. They even gave us a free coffee maker and the owner came by the house to inspect the work! We even smoked a blunt in the backyard when it was all done.

The American Shingle owners are at it again. Please go to and blast them with emails and phone calls. Let's run this SCAM OPERATION out of Business before they have the time to hurt others. I have already notified the Secret Service local law enforcement in Alabama. They are useless human beings and should not be allowed to operate anywhere except prison

All the people that did know what was going on are still doing it under new companies. All the major players over the offices for American shingle are now working under Alabama,Tennessee,Georgia Construction and services. These people are really that stupid! If an ex sales person that worked with a few of them can find out that info I'm sure the secret service can. They will have their day in court also.

The scam was superior in nature and I was duped also and feel real dumb for going for it. Those guys did a helluva job in CONvincing me to sign the check and I did not see it coming. I truly believed they were working with the insurance company and it was standard procedure when the company and your personal insurance company were working together on the same page. WRONG as you know what. WHAT A SCAM ! CRYING IN SPARTANBURG
