Avoid Warren Johnson at all cost

We paid Warren Johnson $600 cash to buy supplies to start the job. He was a no show on several scheduled occasions when we had closed the business (my husband is a surgeon and had to cancel patient bookings on those days) to be there to meet him to do the electrical work. Warren finally showed up 5 hours late but didn't bring any tools nor had he purchased any supplies from the money we paid him to ge the supplies. He said we had to take him to Home Depot to buy supplies and then he would stay all nght and work util the job was done. We spent $500 with him at Home Depot and then he said he was tired and was going home but needed $400 more cash.... and $92 for parking. He then left without even starting the job. So far we have given him $1,100 cash but we can't actually get him to come back to do any work. Week after week there is always some excuse.... he's finishing at another job.... he didn't know the traffic would be so bad.... he's too tired.... his wife is in the hospital. We are completely sympathetic of course! but... we are losing our own clients and a lot of money as our business is shut down awaiting the electrical work. We are very eager for Angie's List to intervene to take him off their list and make sure people know not to hire him.... but he's still on Angie's list as a recommended contractor. Unfortunately we have to report his license to the Dept of Building for Fraud.

Poor customer service

Paid for job that Warren Johnson did not and could not do.

Warren Johnson said he was a contractor and electrician and would renovate my bathroom. He showed up 3-4 hours 2-3 days a month. He would say he was coming and wouldn't show up. I would find out when I called him to find out where he was and he always gave me some lame excuse, i.e., "traffic." He asked me for money for materials when he would come which I gave him. He had no materials, tools or team. I even had to pay for him to park in a garage because he had no inspection and would get a ticket parking on the street. Even the parking money he cheated me on. He left me with a non-functioning bathroom with exposed wiring for 3 months! I asked him for some of my money back since he was not able to do the work and I needed a bathroom and he refused. He turned out to be dishonest and incapable.
