Question DetailsAsked on 11/18/2011

how do I report a bad/not honest contractor

Signed a contract with local painter. Called and cancelled job (painting our house). He said he had already bought paint and was keeping 800.00 down payment/advance. If nothing else he should have given me the paint.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Who canceled the job? If it was you, you'll have headaches but still, the paint is yours as you say. Go to your local state attorney's page, download the complaint form, fill and mail it in and don't worry, the guy's gonna lose more than $800. I have a problem with nice people like you who think complaining on angie's List will hurt bad companies. Take out your knives, use the local attorney's general and if damage is bad hire a lawyer as well! Stop thinking bad people care about reputation. the only thing they care is whatever the authorities are saying and they won't say anything unless you complain first. Go for it. PS that's why you pay have the tax collectors finally do something good and that is to go after crooks on your, and mice, and everyone else's behalf. Give him hell and coming from a woman will hurt twice hahahahaha.

Hi, Linda! If you're an Angie's List member, sign in and submit a report, and consider initiating the Complaint Resolution Process, which is a free-of-charge service offered exclusively to our members, in which we'll step in to help with disputes.

If you're not a member, you can always submit a non-member review at, but non-member reviews won't count against a contractor's overall grade.
