Sweet has defrauded me of $14K. He promised completion of my driveway along with patio within 3 days. It's been 3 months and neither of them is complete. The quality of the work done thus far is greatly lacking - concrete is patchy in the driveway, stain is messy, and the lamp posts are incomplete. His crew cut a sprinkler wire in the process of doing the driveway and have done a very shoddy job of repair.
He has given us a big run around, and like a fool, not only have I trusted him all this while, but also felt sorry for his financial state since he kept telling me stories of how he was running tight on cash. As a result of his tales, I made a large portion of the payment before full completion. Serves me right for being overly trusting of humanity. Over the last 3 months, he's made all sorts of excuses and alibis for his tardiness, absence, lack of planning, and lack of responsibility.
Sweet has been deceitful, irresponsible, and overall a cheat.
