Homeowner says Lithonia handyman won’t return deposit

I hired Famous Handyman Services of Lithonia, Ga., to clean some tile and put down grout around my bathroom tile. They requested 50 percent down before starting the job, so I paid them.

I originally had them scheduled, but then I had septic tank issues and that delayed them doing the work. Once the septic tank was repaired, I tried to reschedule again and again. Eventually, they told me they’d just give me a refund and that they’d send me a money order.

They promised that about six weeks ago and now won’t take my calls. The list of excuses is ponderous. I want a $325 refund.

Penalty Box

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
