Tim Wallace's Home Maintenance is *** Man, Fraud

Tim Wallace's Home Maintenance is *** Man, Fraud
Tim Wallace's Home Maintenance is *** Man, Fraud - Image 2
Tim Wallace goes around Mecklenburg County and Charlotte, NC commiting fraud on unsuspecting people. Claims to be licensed HVAC or Plumbing or General Contractors or Electrician. He is none of these. No insurance or anything. I have seen many postings about him. Bottom line about Tim Wallace (TW) from Denver/Sherrills Ford, NC area - he says anything to get a job which he has no skills or qualifications to even do. He will use the wrong parts and portray to you that the job was completed and collect the money and when you inspect his work it is faulty. He purposely installed the wrong parts on my friends AC Systems and charged person for repeated call backs which totalled $1000. The wrong part he installed could have blew the compressor and ruined the whole $4000 unit but what does he care. Tim Wallace AC Repair is a complete scam and he is a *** man.

He used to go under the name Better Choice. Always has money problems.

He has a sister in the area.

Just beware, his work is faulty and he probably is a scam artist like people claim. Very raggedy looking guy.

Guest

Thanks for the warning. I googled AC Repair and Denver (where I live).

I will definately avoid this character Tim Wallace. By the way many people have referenced this fellow on this and other sites.

Guest

Only people with teeth like TW Wallace at the age of 40 are junkies. Guys been pulling the same scam in area for years.

Messed up friends AC unit. Also tells people he is licensed plumber or Electrician.

Takes money and does not do work as promised. Just maybe gets money for his habits..

Guest

Agree 100% with person. He claimed credentials to me and gave me a quote to replace a 3 year old AC unit saying it I needed a 2.5 ton AC and I currently had a 2 ton.

Took money.

I found another company and they said unit was fine, I just had a hole/leak in the duct in the attic. Tim Wallace cooned me too.

Tim Wallace (aka TW, Timothy Gene Stuart Wallace) known Home Improvement Scam Artist

I had AC trouble and someone refered a Tim Wallace to me a year back. Looks like same guy. Anyway, he says my whole AC is no good and rights a quote to install a brand new Goodman for $2000 yet says he can't pull a permit becuase he has no license. He asks me for $1500 upfront to pay for AC and then $500 for labor when done. Yeh, right!!! He says he works for J & J Sheet Metal, Heating and AC out of Denver and Maiden, NC but does weekend jobs on his own. I call another company and they said all you is just 3 lbs of freon and its been working fine ever since. The guy is other absoluetly incompetent of just a flat out scammer, thief, fraudster. I think the later. Any response Wallace tw4511@***.com. Glad I did not fall for his con job. Still have his written quote/proposal. Will scan it and ad to site later.

Yeh, TW Wallace is just typical ***. Do you think he lives in Stidwell single-wide trailor by choice - no, the *** has no money from drinking and drugs and is one step away from being homeless.

Guest

HE DOES NOT WORK FOR J&J - AT ALL. HE CAN P*SS OFF IF HE SAYS HE DOES AND CALL J&J RIGHT AWAY OR CALL POLICE.

OTHERS HAVE ALSO STATED HE CLAIMS HE WORKS FOR THEM. AGAIN HE NEVER HAS. HE MAY BUY PARTS BUT IT NOT NOR WAS EVER AN EMPLOYEE.

GROW UP TW AND STOP PULLING THIS STUFF AND HARMING OTHER PEOPLE'S AND BUSINESSES REPUTATIONS. GET A LIFE.

Guest

Hey, Tim Wallace at TW4511@***.com why don't you repsond to these accusations instead of hiding like a little coward. You know these reviews exist. You steal and *** people all the time and I guess it has finally caught up to you.

Guest

I know Tim. And yes he lives in a single-wide trailor.

He is a ***.

Everytime you see him it looks like a drunk that just rolled out of a garbage can looking for food. Can't you tell from looking at him to not hire him??

Guest

I know Tim for long time and he is no AC Tech. He gets used parts and rigs thngs together.

Does not guarantee his work and does not offer quality. Probably is on drugs.

Guest

I have his new number (704-201). Email me. kellydargins@***.com

Guest

TW Wallace. Guy ain't no better than a $5 crack *** - do anything to get his next fix.

He tells people he knows plumbing, electric, specializes in HVAC, painting, decks - you name it. Ain't licensed, insured or anything. Screwed aunt out of money. Used to operate with a 704-995-**** number that was disconnected last summer.

Then operated under 704-483-**** which he screened the calls.

Now that number is diconnected. Anyone know his new number let me know.

Guest

Tim Wallace does A/C work on the side (thus illegally). No permit, no insurance, no manufacturer's warranty since he not licensed)I know of his work.

I have repaired a house he worked on.

If you think you are saving using someone like him - will cost you triple in the long run. Tim leave it to professionals and stick to apartment maintainence (sweeping floors and cleaning).

Timothy Wallace of Sherrills Ford NC

I paid TW Tim Wallace to fix my windows in cash upfront and he sent a kid to do the work. Kid did not finish job and did it wrong. I repeatedly called TW who screens his calls and never called back. Stole my money for fixing house. Very bad man. I would never hire again. Bad work, steals money and immoral person. I can't beleive I call and leave many messages and he just ignored me all the time. Never ever trust this man. He also is called TW and company was A Better Choice Home Improvement. He is unethical.

Know the guy you are talking about. He used to steal electricity from Duke Power by rigging the meter device and got caught a few times.

Not surprising he is suspected of drug dealing and stuff.

Defnately a shady character. Never pay upfront is best advice when dealing with contractors.

Evidence manager gets 3 years

By Lisa Emmerich, Sentinel Staff Writer | June 23, 2005

DELAND -- A former Volusia County Sheriff's Office evidence manager was sentenced to three years in prison and 10 years' probation Wednesday for stealing nearly $500,000 worth of drug evidence from the DeLand compound he supervised. Tim Wallace of New Smyrna Beach pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to traffic cocaine and official misconduct. He was arrested in February 2004 after investigators said he altered records and replaced some drug evidence with sod to try to hide the thefts.

Guest

Is this that Jerry Garcia guy that is like 40 years old and looks like he is 65. I know this Tim TW Wallace.

That's how drugs mess you up.

Sorry he riped you off. Don't pay upfront next time, half.

Tim Wallace (TW) Scam Artist operating out of Denver, NC

Tim Wallace (TW) Scam Artist operating out of Denver, NC
I am writing you to warn of a home improvement scam artist based in your area. I have traced him to a trailer house in your area with the help of an investigator. He claims to be licensed EPA Refrigerant for AC Freon purposes and to have an NC Contractors and HVAC License. All are untrue. He also claims to be bonded and insured. He prays on houses about to be sold and can make the repairs a buyers request from the home inspection report. He ripped me off and I referred him to my neighbor and he ripped them off to and then disappears. He prays on elderly and single-mothers. He goes by the name TW or Tim Wallace and business name A Better Choice Home Improvement. I have traced many other he has ripped of in Union, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and other nearby counties. I have attached his picture and describe him as 6 feet tall, long hair in a pony-tail, really bad teeth (brown and rotten) and skinny. He is a heavy smoker and is thought to be a drug-user. He is into guns and usually carries a pistol. He usually drives a pickup truck. I have been told he might be a Sex Offender from another State. He lives in a trailor at 6046 LINEBERGER RD, DENVER, NC 28037. If you have been ripped off by him contact me because we are working with the NC Attorney Generals Office about him on consumer fraud charges. For more info email me.

So..

"He ripped me off and I referred him to my neighbor and he ripped them off to and then disappears"

He rips you off and you then decide it's smart to refer him to your neighbor? What a piece of work.

TW Wallce You sound like a piece of ***, heretofor referred to as POS. Mr Wallace you did not get an education past 5th grade as is evidenced in your retort to the complainant.

So you steal money from the elderly and the less fortunate, you can't find your way around a toothbrush either, nasty. Do you kiss your boyfriend with that nasty mouth? You are also a sexual offender you POS .For that alone you should be kicked to *** and back. I would like to curb stomp your remaining 3 or 4 teeth.

Can't do anything honestly huh?

we'll find you son and when we do, you will wish you had stayed in jail, at least there you might a little protection you POS. see you soon.

Guest

He drives an old Chevy Blazer now.

Guest

The man looks like long-haired greaseball from the pic. I see his name all over internet.

Thanks for review.

I am a Realtor in the area and an associate used him the past. I forwarded her this site info.

Guest

Nice pic. Does look pretty gross.

Why would you hire him. Definately looks criminal-minded.

Guest

I know the guy. Would not trust him to work on changing coils.

He is what is called a part changer. Does not know AC sytems just changes parts. May do it right or may not do it right but either way he gets paid and you might kiss your cash good bye. He does not work for J&J Sheet Metal.

I know this for fact. If he says he does call J&J and let them know.

Guest

I am the original poster. Tim Wallace installed incompatible Goodman Coil on my Rheem AC, did not install PVC drain or refill freon.

System never worked but he was paid. Charged me $50-100 for repeated call-backs, about $1000 overall. Had to pay company over $1000 to redo all Tim's work.

I STAND BY MY POST. Yes, Tim I want a full refund.

Guest

I've seen several different sites with the same comments posted each. Almost appears as though someone is trying to ruin someone else's reputation.

It looks like a smear campaign.

I wonder if the originators of this want any money to stop? Just Curious :?

Guest

*** men like this person give real licensed HVAC people bad reps. Guess what Tim Wallace I have to pay a ton of money for insurance, advertising, etc while trash like you just operate illegally stealing from people giving the industry a bad name. Go back to flipping burgers or laying in your *** and puke in your trailor and let us men do HVAC work.
