Handy Stanley - Bad Handyman

I hired Handy Stanley (Ted) to install Christmas lights this year (2015) and he quoted me a flat price (not an insignificant price at that) which he stated included putting them up and taking them down after Christmas. I bought him lunch while he was at my home, helped...

I have no idea who this guy is. I have never installed Christmas lights or any lights for that matter.

He must be someone that doesn't like me or know me and has no life but to try to bring me down somehow.

I always have plenty of work and have many references. Best Reguards, Ted aka Handy Stanley

For Sale Ad Not Listed

Update by user Jan 24, 2016

It has been 30 days since posting my complaint with Craigs List and have not heard any response!

Original review posted by user Dec 24, 2015
I posted an ad to sell my Yamaha Grizzly 700 with snowplow. It never made it to the RV site. However, I did receive several calls from a company asking me to sell my Grizzly through them for a fee of $200.00. If my ad never made it to public view how did this company see my ad? CL was unable to explain why my add never made it to public view! It seems to me there are persons inside CL blocking ads so they can pressure people to higher them to sell the items for a fee!

DO NOT BUY wood from Curtis at 303-204-****

The QUALITY of the wood is very unacceptable, it is not seasoned wood. We got a cord and tried for 3-4 hours two nights in a row attempting to start a warm fire. He also does not deliver a full cord, it is closer to a 3/4- 1/2 cord of wood. Wood is very heavy...

Use your head, if someone can scam u they may try

I'm a craigs lister and use my better judgement and haven't been taken so far. The worst thing for me is the new format,,, it SUCKS!!!!! They just went back to the old format for a day and I said thank god! Now the new sucky one is back..... Can I change, and somehow go back to the old awesome format?? Anyone?? Bu the way someone tried to scam me, they listed something expensive at about 1/3 value and it was across the U.S. said send me the money into my account then I will send the item. Don't fall for the obvious scams. Too many people are dumb enough to support these scammers. Don't let it be you.

Attempted Check scam

The scammers are back with the "I will send you a check for your item and you keep your funds and send the rest back". They are going under the name of Sam Levy and Dylan Martin now. Be aware and careful. Trying to sell a computer I no longer need. The person I communicated with was willing to purchase from my pictures. He said he was quite satisfied with what he saw. He asked me to remove my ad. When I instructed him on how take checks, I did not hear from him until 2 days later. That's when he hit me the check scam. I immediately responded with "sorry, no deal". Be careful!

Don't hire Jeff Ogden

I found Jeff Ogden in Craigslist also. I first contacted him on May 2015. It's now October 2015. The email he used is zerocreativemedia@***.com. His cell phone number is (647)285-****. Same M.O. with the other victims. I got a bit luckier though. My deal was...

I had the same situation happen to me however we sent him $150.00

Jeff Ogden is a Football player and there is a mooseheadstudio located in the US.

I must say, he pulled a good one on several of us. Number is still active but no response from either email or phone.

Pet / Puppy Scam.

Craigslist Services Review from Blue Springs, Alabama

I have used cragslist for years. It seems like in the last few months i can not list items without being harrased by scammers and spammers. They contact me by phone and text now. I will no longer be posting on cragslist do to this issue. Cragslist in the past was a great solution to advertising in the local paper. Guess ill go back to the local paper. Just tired of this garbage. I dont believe cragslist is even trying to do anything about it.

Not as described/ advertised

Skilled as a SCAM artist!

Dao moved, changed banks. changed phone, etc, all to avoid a Court judgement against him. He is a 'deadbeat', cheat, liar and makes excuses while using his family -i.e.' I had to get a relative out of jail and could not come to work' and several other family excuses to avoid his contract. He did cash the deposit check within one hour after receiving the check and failed to return even a portion of the deposit which was initially proposed and offered to him. He is just the worst possible repairman as he promises and makes statements that he can repair and knows how to perform the work in a timely/exceptional and satisfactory manner. He presents as too good to be true! BEWARE as this type of person is a scam perpetrator.

Daughter purchased a refrigerator and it worked for a month. Was told at time of purchase it had a 3 month warranty however multiple attempts to call, email and text go unanswered.

Now stuck with a clunker to either try to fix or dispose of. Don’t buy from the vendor.
