Scam Description

Hired this man to install a new furnace, he wrote us up a work order telling what he was installing with the total price. He said he would need half of that amount to purchase furnace and collect the rest when installed. Paid him half and set up time to install, this was in Feb., he has totally stopped answering my calls and texts. And we have no furnace and we’re out $1000.He has done great work for several friends and neighbors so I don’t know what happened this time.
