Ron Ignores All Attempts to Collect Money He Owes; Starts Putting Up Fake Reviews

Last post I was wondering what Ron's next play would be to avoid giving me back the money that he agreed to return, for the work he never completed.   His response appears to be to just ignore me and pretend like nothing happened.

Ron Janis Ignores Requests for Payment

Honestly, at this point he's just being stupid.  I've noticed that he has 2-3 posts per day going up on Yelp and CitySearch, I'm assuming in an attempt to hide his negative reviews.  The yelp ones never stick because they are obviously manipulated.  The CitySearch ones do, but who actually uses CitySearch?  I had never heard of it until I started googling for Private Sewer and Water Corp.

He's either faking the reviews or  begging/bribing customers to post them. Either way that's pretty pathetic.  Plus one 1star review and three 5star reviews only average out to 4stars.  If he just returns the relatively small amount of money that he owes me he would get one of those 1star reviews taken down.  That's a pretty effective use of your advertising dollar if you ask me.

Ron Pretends He Didn't Get The EPayment Request

I sent Ron a second epayment request yesterday, like Ron asked, and let him know that I did so.  No response from him.  I followed up again today and claims I never sent it.  So I sent a third request.  I also let him know that the first was still valid so he could still use that if the second or third didn't make it through.

Ron Janis Still Won't Pay What he Owes

I sent the second and third requests to the exact same email address that I sent the first one, which he acknowledged receiving.   He's out of excuses now.   He's admitted to owing me money, admitted to receiving the payment request, and yet he has not acted on it.  I'm curious to see what other stalling tactics he can employ at this point.  I'm pretty sure he is out of excuses.

Another Private Sewer and Water Victim Chimes in

Another guy that Ron has ripped off joined in on the Facebook thread  where Ron agreed to repay the money he had taken from me.

Other Guy: Curios if you ever got your money. He has been telling me the same thing for 6 months. Would lie right to your face.
 March 20 at 4:05am
Me: No. He asked me to send him an ePayment request, which I did. He acknowledged receiving it and said he would get on it. He has not, nor has he responded to a text in the almost two weeks since then. I don't know why I thought he would do the right thing for a change.
 March 20 at 9:12am
The Private Sewer and Water Corporation: You two should go on a date together!!! Lol! Seriously though, yes Mike I did get the request and I'll do it Monday when I'm back in town. I don't know if the request expires so maybe send me a new one over the weekend. Thanks.

Another Private Sewer and Water Victim Chimes In
Notice how there is no explanation from Ron on why he didn't take care of it a week ago when he first got the payment request.  Also, I'm pretty sure he could take care of it where ever he is. The nice thing about ePayments is you can take care of them from any smartphone.

Two More Days of Inaction from Ron Janis and the Private Sewer and Water Corp

I texted Ron yesterday and today trying to get a status on the payment that he promised me almost a month ago.  Again he did not respond.  Here's the last few weeks of texts:

There's a whole lot of no responses from Ron there isn't there?

Another Day Another No Response from Private Sewer and Water Corporation

Still no refund from the Private Sewer and Water Corporation.  I texted Ron Janis yet again and again he did not respond.

Monday, March 16, 2015

Still no Word from Ron Janis on the Refund he promised.

As the title says, I still haven't heard from Ron, and I haven't received my refund.  I texted him twice today and he did not respond.

Still No Refund from Private Sewer and Water

Three more days have passed and I haven't heard from Ron Janis. I texted him to see if he was planning on acting on that epayment request yet.  No response.

Private Sewer and Water Still hasn't Issued the Refund They Agreed to.

Its been five days since I sent Ron  The ePayment request.  He has not acted on it yet, so I text him again.

Me:  Did you get my payment request?
Ron:  I did.  I'll get on it. 

This is the kind of service you can expect from the Private Sewer and Water Corporation.  Ron will not make any effort to solve a problem unless you constantly stay on him.  Even then there's a good chance he won't do anything.

No Movement on the Refund from Private Sewer and Water

Its been almost a week since Ron Janis agreed to refund a portion of the money he owes me for the job that he never finished. I haven't heard anything from him since.

I texted him this morning.

Me:   So what is the plan?  Did you send me a check?  Are you going to send me a check?  Do you want me to send you an epayment request?

Ron:  Do an epayment request, but it is contingent upon removal of all reviews.  By yourself and Jen.  I'm not being a jerk, its just what it is.

(Actually he is being a jerk.  He fully deserves those reviews and he knows it.  Whatever, I'll take them down if he actually returns the money he owes me.)

Me: I need your email address.  I'm happy to take down all reviews after you refund the money you owe me

(Who still uses aol?)
I send him an ePayment request.  It takes seconds to respond to an epayment.  He should have taken care of it this afternoon.   We'll see what happens.
