Took Money to do Patio But RAN-OFF without doing it

We hired Stefan Vasile after reading his online profiles and reviews. That turned out to be a big mistake. We had a terrible building experience with this guy and his company, he took money upfront for all of the works and at the end he ran off with £3500 without doing our patio. We had loads of issues with his works which we had to hire someone to put right costing us an additional tens of thousands of pounds. I can say from personal experience that the 5 star reviews being posted are fakes and written by Stefan himself. He wrote a 5-star review using my name without my knowledge which I had to have taken down. I would never recommend him after making a mistake of hiring him. Assaf Jamal
