We live in a sad world where sometimes, doing the research isn’t enough to prevent you from getting conned. A man whose home was damaged by a hail storm hired a contractor after researching him. That contractor was Mark McGoatry. His subcontractors came in, did some half-hearted work, and then disappeared after not getting paid by the contracting company. Two years later, the home is still unrepaired.
McGoatry claimed it was due to the insurance not being enough, despite the contract saying otherwise.
