Chicago painter accused of taking payment, doing no work

COMPLAINT: Sandy Calanca, Lindenhurst, Ill.

"Having used David Mark Painting three times in the past, I contacted him to replace some ant-infested trim around my garage door and paint the new trim.

"Since the estimate was only $220 and with the past good service, I signed the contract and sent him the full payment. To date he has not done any work, has not answered e-mails or calls and has not responded to a letter from my attorneys.

"I ended up having to replace the header beams over the garage door, and more trim than originally expected. Since that work’s been completed, there’s no longer a need for David Mark Painting to do anything at my house."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I simply want my $220 returned."
