Joh Reil on Craigslist Conartist

He contacted us via Craigslist to install tv and mirror. We then hired him for additional job. We paid a deposit for materials for second job our mistake. He never came back returned calls or emails. However he did give us license copy but I think it's a fake and so is the name. Here is what he have this is what he looks like. I wish I had googled him first. I work for the state so I will filing everywhere and if we find he is using someone else id that's another charge. It's a shame I'm about to make him famous

Original review posted by user Jun 13, 2016
John Reil contacted me in response to a craigslist post where I asked about quotes for removing some junk. He had the lowest price of $100 and had a registered business so I didn't think I could go wrong. He showed up very friendly and kept asking about taking more things than agreed upon, naturally I agreed. He took one truck-load and said he'd come back for the rest, I paid him $100 plus a $60 tip because it was a lot of work and more than anticipated. When he came back he said he needed another $80 because the shingles cost to get rid of. I gave him $60 as I was getting suspicious of his actions. He took another load of things (he kept asking me to add more junk to get rid of, so I did). And there was one load left and he said he'd come back....he never did. I texted and called and he kept saying he'd come, 3 times he said he'd be there the next day and never showed up. At this point I paid $220 for a job quoted at $100 and he never finished it. I called him a ***-artist via text and he called up ranting without letting me get a word in saying he was a good person because he went to church and how he makes six figures so he doesn't need to help people like me, he threw the advertised price in my face quoting what I had told him was the highest quote I got from craigslist being $600 as if he was saving me $500 (which is rediculous), he even lied about a relative dying as an excuse. To this day he hasn't finished the job and is full of excuses like a child. I've never encountered a bigger ***-artist or immature business-person.
