Mr Karl Berg, also known as the Tree Man, responded to a call for some one to remove five 60 ft tall trees from my back yard. He requested and received a $5,000.00 dollar check and $7,000.00 dollars in cash as a down payment to remove the trees. After four months of excuses for not being able to start work, and after numerous phone calls, letters and visits to his home, Mr Berg was discharged and a demand for the return of the money that I gave him resulted in Mr. Berg declaring that he had completed the job and that there would be no refund since, in his eyes, he had completed the job. Since Mr. Berg refused to begin the job, another contractor was hired. When this contractor completed the job, Mr. Berg took credit for that contractor’s work and declared that he had completed the terms of the contract and that there would not be a refund. Criminal proceeding have been started with the intention of putting Mr. Berg in jail. The first court hearing is 5 October 2015.

Warning From RIPOFF SCAMS Please Read below:
If you have been fraudulently charged on either your debit or credit card, or coerced into paying and was scammed, we would advise you to immediately either visit in person, or call your Financial Institution that issued you the card. Open a fraud dispute on all charges incurred, file fraud charges against the committers and cancel your card numbers… then get new card numbers issued to avoid more Fraud charges in the future!
Most of these Scam companies will offer you zero help with a refund, you MUST take matters into your OWN HANDS! Sometimes they will promise you that they will refund you to buy more time… DO NOT fall for that, from our experience most never see a refund. They are counting on enough time to pass that your fraud claim time limit window will expire, ultimately allowing them to keep your hard earned money! File the Dispute ASAP or Open a Dispute with PayPal and Immediately Escalate it, if you paid through PayPal to get your funds back! The longer you wait to dispute, the less chance you have of getting your money back. This is YOUR MONEY, fight for it!
If you find that you are past your window to File a dispute with your Financial Institution, or were denied for any reason, please do not hesitate to File a Complaint with the CFPB at this link here: https://www.consumerfinance.gov/complaint
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), is a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.
They will investigate and can sometimes get the payment reversed and taken back from these Scam Artists even if you lost your Fraud dispute with your Financial Institution due to the Scammers lying! Stay vigilent and good luck!
