FAILURE OF The Refinishing Touch TO PAY FOR WORK IT CONSIGNED, DISHONESTY BY THE COMPANY

I allege all of the following based on my personal experience.

I was looking on Craigs list for work to make money I came across an add posted by  I  Project Coordinator & Operations Administrator, The Refinishing Touch I CFRMC,  9350 Industrial Trace I Alpharetta GA 30004, Main: (770) 642-4169 I Direct E Fax: (404) 393-9705, slackington@therefinishingtouch.com

I called the company sometime about May 23rd, 2014 to inquire about the position, her description sounded too good to be true, but I gave her the benefit of doubt as she was telling me the information she rendered as a result of my inquiry.

The company proceeded to ask me to send to the company all of my identification information as her company needed to do a total background check on me, reluctantly I did comply slowly. I sent to her all of my very personal information by email. Some time later within two weeks she came back to me with my court records and found the only two entries in my record, being crimes I committed in my home, these charges were both dismissed, so basically her criminal background check turned up nothing of value on me, she then proceeded to want to hire me as she concluded that I was in possession of the skill set her company needed.

The company explained that the correct person for the position mush have a truck and all of the equipment to do upholstery work nationwide including in Miami. Personally and from a professional standpoint I found this requirement to be sort of out of the ordinary, she promised consistency of nationwide work but no recognisable price in payment. The requirement and the unrecognisable price did not support her too good to be true claims.

At no time during the telephone interviews could I get her to tell me what the pay was, she told me the manner in which they remunerated was based on many aspects of the jobs to be performed. We talked many times and exchanged emails, but in the end I simply forgot about the silly idea all together.

One of the officers of the company visited me at my shop.

I thought that was a splendid idea  and naturally I was looking forward to this meeting, the days passed and the ” officer” of the company did not show or call to cancel a no show. Again I simply forgot about stupid sounding idea, why would I want to be associated with a company who could not keep an important appointment right? but look I was pissed off at myself for having wasted so much time and energy plus I gave them all of my personal information and really could not say I trusted them or knew them to be credible.

Some time passed and one day I again remembered about them and decided to call again I am informed that should go to Georgia, that the company would pay the hotel for 2 nights and pay for the lunch. I sorta thought it was a good offer, but after many hours of contemplation  I decided against the idea again, that was it I was now done.

Some time passed  until one day my phone rang and a man called Joe told me he was from the finishing touch and that he had a job offer for me in Tampa that I can make the stuff in his small shop in Fort Lauderdale Florida and install the work in Tampa. I told Joe that my shop was more equip than his and that I could very easily do this work as he described it to me in my own shop in my home in the City of Miami, he described his shop to me, his description sounded like a hole in the wall with a sewing machine and I would be working on the floor basically is what I understood as the cutting table he said he had was very small.

His description led me to decline his offer to work at his hole in the wall and invite him to my home shop which is a professional outfit.

Joe  wasted no time the very next day he came by my shop as he was totally convinced after actually talking to me that I was the man for his job. I demonstrated my sewing skills to him and I saw him smile, that smile of approval, he further made the remark to me that seeing how my hands manipulated the material, he saw the hand of an expert.

The following day Joe brought the work for me to do I was very disappointed with him as he had failed to tell me the another person or company had already started the task and the sewing was not done in a proper manner.

I WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THIS STORY AS I GET TIME BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE COMPANY NAMED HEREIN FAILED TO ,PAY ME FOR MY WORK, IT USED MY ASSETS, PROMISED TO PAY AND FAILED TO DO THIS TO DATE
