I originally used this company to repair my refrigerator. The repair went well and the price was reasonable. Jonathan asked me to write the check for services to his helper, Gerald. After they left, I got a call from a check cashing company. I gave approval for the check to be cashed. This seemed somewhat unprofessional but I was happy with the price and the work so I disregarded it. So when I had a repair need for my dishwasher, I called Jonathan again. This time he asked for payment in advance. I felt a bit uncomfortable, but due to the fact that he had done work in the past, I agreed. Again he asked me to write the check to Gerald. I did not get a call from the check cashing company the second time. Jonathan began putting me off when I called to ask him when the repair would be done. Then he stopped returning my calls. I had to put a stop-payment on the check. I have not heard from him in two weeks.
