Rob is a fraud and scam artist. He is the worst contractor ever. I don't even think this guy knows how to do any construction work. Upon hiring Rob he told me he needed a deposit. This right away raised a red flag. What respectable construction business needs a deposit? I know many successful people in the trades, none of which ever need a deposit. I agreed upon a deposit once he actually needed money to do some buying. His initial part was to rip out some drywall in which no costs would needed. Just straight labour. Once i said i wouldnt give him money he had some lame excuse claiming he couldnt do the job. This guy is a joke.
Partial Driveway Reconstruction Project
my name is Scott Smith from Winnipeg Manitoba and Mr. Rob Beer has rescently stollen $1,500.00 off me. The $1,500.00 is money I received from WCB of Manitoba for a Partial Driveway Reconstruction Project do to Disibility issues. I am a Disabled Person and Mr. Beer took advantage of me. I met him at a family Gathering while he was dating a cousin of mine. He targeted me when he overheard me talking about the money I received from WCB ( 2,000.00 ) for a Partial Driveway Re-Construction Project and I was having trouble finding a Contractor to do the work. I was briefly talking to him about the project at the party.
He Called me ( out of the blue ) a day or to later and wanted to come over to my house to do some measurements of the area of work.
He then offered to do the Job for $2,500.00 and needed a start up fee of $1,500.00 to start the job on Monday Morning ( Oct. 15, 2012 ). He claimed that the bobcat was going to start that day but nothing has been done for 2 weeks so I fired him and demanded WCB'S Money Back but he claimed that he purchased the re-bar and it was non-refundable after being cut for the job. I asked for the $1,500.00 back - Re-Bar and he claimed that he will repay me on Wednesday Oct 31, 2012. I found out later that he dumped my cousin and I haven't heard from him since. Thats when I found out about this Web Site when I googled him.
This man is a fraud and he is not to be trusted. This man took the money I needed to do the Partial Driveway Construction Project for Disability Reasons and now the work can't be done until he gives the Money back like he said he would.
I gave him the opportunity to pay me back in payments but I gave him a deadline of this morning to respond.
Now do to this Mr. Beer, I have to take him to small claims court to try and get the money back but do to the other reviews on this Website, It may not happen but I will keep trying until he pays me the money he owes me.
I am very upset that I trusted this man even though my cousin vouched for him. This man even caused problems within my own family and he is not to be trusted.
I give Mr. Beer a rating of 0 - 5 ( and I am being generous ).
This guy is a complete SCAM!@! He took my deposit, ripped my basement apart, and then took off with the money and I've never seen him again. Now I'm forced to hire someone else to finish his mess. This is the kind of guy who gives contractor's a bad name. DO NOT HIRE!!!!
Hi! I sure wish I had of read these reviews before allowing my son to work for Rob for 1.5 days. Rob is a huge scammer who went so far this time to scam a 14.5 year old boy. My son placed an ad looking for any part time work over the summer and Rob responded. I drove my son to meet Rob and drop him off, Rob seemed nice enough in the beginning, told us what he would pay him and asked what he knew how to do. He proceeded to leave my son unsupervised for over 2 hours while he went to pay child support. I picked up my son that night and being the smart kid he is he Googled Rob and found this site so he devised a plan to get paid. I took my son back the next morning (July 1) where he showed the home owner the reviews he found (by this time homeowner was unimpressed with Rob's work already) and then when Rob showed up asked to be paid and Rob said he would at the end of the day. I went back at 1:00pm to pick him up, Rob even asked my son to leave his tape measure as Rob did not have one - WHAT KIND OF CONTRACTOR DOES NOT HAVE A TAPE MEASURE?? Rob came to my vehicle to talk to me and gave me a sob story about his girlfriend transferring money out of his account and going to the USA. He offered to pay by cheque (no thank you) or we could come back at 5:00 to get money, which we decided to do. At 4:30pm I called like he asked and conveniently his phone went to voicemail so my son and I drove to the house to find out he had left hours before. The next day my son did get ahold of him by blocking a phone # (as when we tried calling we never got an answer) and told Rob what he thought of him and told him he needed to pay up. In the long run - Rob lost the basment job he was working on after he was told he would not be paid anymore until the job was completed. My son fortunately did get paid some of what he deserved but ONLY because the homeowner felt bad and paid him out of his pocket for the work my son did.
Myself I was not impressed with the quality of work Rob was doing and I am no contractor. I watched him cut drywall then bang it with his fists to break it, push and bang drywall into place to make it fit, meanwhile breaking the corners. He seemd to have very little tools and showed up by bus both days my son worked.
Do not use Rob's Renos, or when he called my house the phone number showed up under All Star Renovations (204-293-4589), his name is Rob Beer! Do not hire him for any contacting work unless you want poor quality.
Rob- you commented that I had raised a smart kid and hard worker - you asked for tips! #1 - Teach your kids to be honest and trustworthy not liars and dishonest like you.
We hired Rob's Design and Renovations to finish our basement (owner/operator, Rob Beer). Rob took our deposit and took off with it. The subcontractors that did do work were never paid. The basement remains unfinished with no word from Rob. He stole from them, and from us. Rob Beer is a thief; do not fall for his stories and excuses. For further proof, do a Manitoba Courts Record search, online and for free (www.jus.gov.mb.ca/Domain/FileSearch/SearchByOtherInfo.aspx)...and you will find that a number of victims have taken Rob to Small Claims Court to try and get back money he took from them. We have a long list of charges we will be bringing against him as well as a long list of victims to back up those charges. We were not his first victims but we will be his last. See you soon, Rob.
I wish I had read previous comments before I decided to use him for a very small repair job. He took deposit and never showed up nor could be contacted.
Quickly after seeing previous issues / warnings here, cancelled the check.
Thanks for posting all.
He is "smooth" , appears honest, to know "all" , etc - but "STAY AWAY" from him and his methods.
Rob will take your money and run. He'll take a large deposit, bring in legit subcontractors to get the job started, not pay them, so of course they can't come back to finish your job, and he doesn't have the knowledge to quote on your job properly in the first place or finish it himself. Oh, and once he has your money, good luck getting in touch with him again. We have now met two sets of homeowners and another subcontractor that have been scammed by Rob. Don't call him and don't work for him.
Rob, you'll be seeing some of us in small claims and others will be pressing criminal charges.
As per Rob's comments below:
The work is not to your liking? How would you know, you haven't been back since you took the client's money before the jobs started (and didn't pay anyone or buy supplies)? I know the clients are happy since they've continued to hire me to do work for them and asked me to testify against you in court. Besides, if the work is sub-standard how are you making it right for the clients? Oh, wait, you dodge their calls too.
I strongly suggest you make things right with everyone you've screwed over and cease business.
Warning!!!!! This business is a scam!!!!!! We gave rob a 50% deposit that was agreed upon and we never saw him again........do not hire!!!!!
Rec Room Renovation
This man is a scam artist. We paid him as the job was going along. He asked for money every other day. He took cabs to and from the job. He made promises he could not keep. I had to teach him how to do a vapor barrier (i am a woman that had to learn as I had flags raised).
We always had different faces in and out of our home never knowing when they would show up. When we had completely finished paying for the job and all the supplies (including things on "special order") he ditched!!!!
We have since found out that his workers were not paid.
This was a rec room that was approx. 275 square feet. We now have to get the job completely redone at our cost again!
If this guy does any work for you run as he has no idea what he is doing.
