Snow clearing company scamming customers

Some homeowners in Montreal and Laval say they've been scammed by a snow removal company.

More than a dozen customers posting online reviews say despite signing a contract with two men running Aménagement Paysager et Déneigement FJC, they never showed up to clear the snow.

A customer from Laval, who wished to remain anonymous fearing repercussions, told CJAD he found the company on Craigslist and signed a contract with the two men in his home, still they never showed up to clear his driveway.

“I paid $475 plus tax, first snow fall, they didn’t show up, I called and called; no answer. Finally, he picked up, I asked him for a refund and he hung up on my face.”

CJAD tried to contact the owners for comment but they did not return our call.

The company is registered in Quebec however their Quebec web site has recently been shut down.

A web site for a business operating in Ontario under the same name is still active.

Both the Montreal and Laval police are urging victims to file a report at their local police station.

    I filed a report with the Montreal Police on 2nd january 2014.

    I initially sent a registered letter to 8313 crois Montrichard, in Anjou. I verified the address from the NEQ (numéro d'entreprise du Québec)
    Post Canada returned the item stating that it could not deliver the mail because no one with that name lives there under that name.
    I cross checked the address using évaluation fonciere from the city of Montreal. Spoke to his landlord, he confirmed that he lives on top of him, but didn't want to give any info.
    With this info,
    Hopefully Frank D'Amore and Johnny (no last name..) will be prosecuted by the fullest extent of the law.

      @Joe Cannizzaro Correction: he confirmed he LIVED on top.
      He left many months ago, still using the same address on le registraire des entreprises.
