    I have never in my life had anything like this to happen to me. I’ve heard of this kind of stuff happening to others. They are so wrong for doing this to hard working people who are just trying to make things happen for their families. They even had the nerves to speak about Jesus . I’m very disappointed in this company. I have forgiven them, I do expect them to pay for what they have done. They should be closed and never be able to do business ever! They are rude and try to get out of giving the business they promised. They send you on bogus walk throughs,. There is a JUDGEMENT DAY COMING , and I am reminded that, everyone has to stand before God and give an account of what was , said and done and even our thoughts. TJA, do what’s right and turn yourselves in to the authorities today (10/30/13)
