A few months ago, Carte Blanche flighted an episode on which a Johannesburg pool contractor was accused of scamming several home owners out of huge amounts of money. The story goes that the contractor would collect a 50-70% deposit, arrive on site to dig a massive hole on the ground, leave and never be seen again…
Thousands of homeowners have lost hundreds of thousands of Rands to dishonest builders, carpenters, plumbers and other contractors who have talked a good game, collected a deposit and then disappeared into thin air. In some instances, the contractor does complete the job but does so in such a shoddy manner that sometimes another contractor has to be hired to fix the mess.
Admittedly, most contractors do a good job. And when they mess up, the vast majority put it right at once. But there is a minority out there who will do a bad job and then find ways to avoid putting it right or simply disappear without completing the job after being paid a deposit or the full amount.
