Criminal Contractor Got My Contacts Through Service Magic

A contractor named Marlon Flores Joel Iglesias of M and M Construction from Silver Springs contacted me saying that Service Magic referred him. I paid in four installments amounting to under $9,000 to renovate my basement and set up plumbing, electical and carpentry for a dishwasher hookup in my kitchen. He received his payments but never completed the work. I later checked his records and he was arrested 6 times (including for theft and assault.). Service Magic said that he's not approved so doesn't know how he could get my contacts, but there's no other way he could. Beware of Service Magic referrals. Check police records of everyone who they refer.

Dear Mandy,

I stand corrected. The contractor in question was not referred by Service Magic/ Home Advisor. While we did use your services, we also used the services of a competitor that apparently doesn't screen contractors. Apparently, he was referred by this competitor. My sincere apologies for jumping to judgement. Service Magic/ Home Advisors did not refer the contractor in question.
