Anyone looking to hire 

Fontanería Vives 



please be aware. He has recently after doing a few jobs for me, decided he would keep my 300e he was paid to purchase and install a new door. He was paid 300e to cover the door expense and start. He after receiving the money through Bizium did not do the job. He ignored messages for weeks.  Then replied he would do the job and apologized or refund money.  I like to give the benefit of the doubt and said please just do the job as discussed. He never did the job and then ignored all messages. I have had to contact a lawyer who reached our to him and he said ‘take me to court ‘. 

Stay away from this criminal. I will not have to pay to file in court.  I have all the bank records and messages for anyone to view. Emails from layer etc.  It’s unfortunate I even offered to settle allowing him to keep 100e to simply solve. Now I will spend kore to goto court and make sure he doesn’t rip off another Sax community member!

Taking this b***** to a court will easily cost you more than the 300,- and take 2 years or more. And even then there is no guarantee that you will get your money. Crooks now that and will even laugh at you. I have repeatedly warned in this forum: always ask for a written estimate and NEVER pay anything upfront or accept partial payments before completing the job. Mistrust any one and anything, sad but true.

He was good for 2 jobs prior. Fast, I never asked for a lower price. Always paid his quote.  Then he started having endless excuses and slow response times. Yes ,my lawyer said if will cost money, but at this point other than this point I’m tired of letting scum bags rip people off.

Hopefully people will see this and think twice before hiring this scum bag.

Hopefully he won’t rip people off. I found him on google, thinking using a legit tradesmen woule be a safe option.   Little did I know that a low life can still own a business and rip you off.  It’s a warning  to prevent others from loosing their time and money like I did trusting a local business.      Anyone can message me for more info (photos of chats and email ) if they still have doubts about him.

Sadly.   Its disgusting how people feel it’s ok to rip off others who simply hire them at their rates in their profession.  I just don’t get it. I hear endless horror stories from so many.  So I’m happy to share my ongoing experience with the thief.
