****Cowboy warning****

I contacted Dave to supply and fit a boiler as he was recommended on this forum - which he did.

However, he didn't bother using a step ladder and instead stood on the marble top in the kitchen - just after he left my wife was cleaning up the mess and discovered he had cracked the marble top.

I contacted Dave politely and he did not reply - I have sent several text messages and whatsapp to no avail.

I have now managed to get his address and passed it onto the insurers - he is obviously not registered and gave me a false invoice too.

I think it is the same guy I had recommended, who managed to install a new toilet, without bolting it to the floor and without the mechanism working properly. Not impressed..

Correct, badly phrased by myself - meant was recommended to me (by another forum member) - probably the guy himself under a different guise !

I'd also warn people off the local (buy / sell) Facebook groups - as seems all the cowboys are popping up on these. Someone asked for a dish retune, 12 companies (people) recommended, 11 of them never heard of - chancers. Seems same with plumbers as well. Scratch a little deeper and soon find out that recommendations (on the facebook pages) are from friends / wives / family...

People recommend as its their mates or someone they know.Hardly anyone asks for legal workers its basically who is the cheapest.I pay a fortune for my gestoria/autonomo and my tax every month and it really gets on my tits when i go to price up a job and im more than bill and ben .Be nice if the authorities had a crack down.Give us guys and girls a break.Dave the plumber was probably a factory worker or something back in britain.My rant over.
