FOREMOST Repairs ripped me off on a Freezer fan repair

He first misdiagnosed the Freezer issue blaming it on Freon and cleanliness of the condenser. I asked for a repair estimate repeatedly and he refused to provide it to me saying that he has to see what the problem is. He then provided an outrageous estimate after he took the freezer apart leaving me no choice but to pay him to repair it. It turned out to be a fan sensor issue not Freon or cleanliness of the system. It was my fault not to throw him out and have somebody else repair it. He was unprofessional, dishonest, extremely rude and obnoxious person. He charged me three times others. Have filled complaint with state of Maryland contractors. FOREMOST Repairs Inc.is located in Fairfax, Virginia. STAY AWAY.

Frigidaire Washer Repair Ripoff--Foremost Repairs

This is the worst sleazebag place in the country. This hairbag diagnosed my Frigidaire Upright Laundry Center Washer problem as a door switch problem over the phone. I told him that since he was diagnosing over the phone, if the problem turned out to be something else I would not pay for the part and he agreed. On his first visit, he kept lying to me telling me the part for which he was NOT charging me was 95 bucks (it was 65 on repairclinic.com) Well, it was NOT the door switch. I repeated at least three times that I was NOT paying for the door switch, and he agreed, but kept bringing it up as if I was supposed to thank him for his misdiagnosis. When he FINALLY showed up for this service call (TWO HOURS after the THREE hour time slot he had named on the SECOND DATE he had agreed to come--the first time he never showed up, lied about having tried to call. It turned out that he was listing his business TWICE, under different names, and so I got stuck with the same zero.) In person, he diagnosed the "Motor Control Board" and told me it would cost 260 for the part and 100 for labor. I went on line at RepairClinic.com and found the part for 148 dollars. When he finally showed up with the part, after I left a message saying what I had found in terms of the cost, her replaced the MCB, which apparently WAS bad, and charged me 489 for the whole thing. I told him point blank that I thought he was vastly overcharging me for the part, that I thought he HAD in fact charged me for the door switch he claimed NOT to have charged me for (but which was listed on the invoice), and that I thought the whole thing stank. He affected multicultural cluelessness and said simply "You can't have repairs for nothing you know." I walked him out cursing.
