Taking the money and not doing the work? Military vet claims rip off by “contractors” in New Brunswick
The funds that were allegedly walked away with were from Steve Dawe's Canadian Forces disability payout
If you’re a bona fide, ethical contractor, please don’t read the comments underneath the below linked CBC news story out of Moncton, NB.They will just depress you. Once again, our entire industry is assailed by the general public because of the alleged disgraceful activities of two scam artists.
According to the CBC, the victim this time is military veteran Steve Dawe who, with his wife, were hoping to renovate their Moncton home to accommodate for their new baby. They hired contractors Marc Charles (also known as, “Mark Garland,” CBC reports) and Roger Leblanc. Charles has a history of being convicted of ripping off his customers: there are 2015 and 2018 court judgements against him.
The really sad part is that the $22,000 that Dawe says he is owed, came from his military DISABILITY payout. Disgusting.
