AFM SCAM. I too made the unfortunate mistake of contracting with AFM and now look back to see I did not do my homework and got ripped off by Al Miranda of A.F.M Inc. About 7 years ago AFM did some work on our home to install a skylight. The work was slow but eventually got done at what seemed like a price. So in February this year when we needed to have a door and 2 windows replaced without regard to check how the business stood with BBB as we always do for every company weu2019re working with the first time (BIG MISTAKE u2013even though we had worked with them before u2018 7 years is a long time). We signed a contract in February and paid Mr. Alvaro F. Miranda $850 deposit on the work. So began our ordeal of endless voice mail messages on Al Mirandau2019s cell phone u2018 the only contact we had for him (AGAIN BIG MISTAKE). He would call back when we werenu2019t at home leave voice mail about something or other from several measurement appointments which he did not keep to the door order being delayed u2018 finally in May he says the ordered door had a hairline crack in the glass and that I wouldnu2019t like to have it installed. We cancelled the order and he promised to refund our deposit in full. We did not hear from him again u2018 he does not pick up the phone nor return calls. We knew we had been conned when we realized neither the contract nor the business card had contact information other than a cell phone number which he does not pick up. With the exception of this Rip Off Reporting that weu2019re appending our report on all other business searches ( BBB, Chicago City permits and licenses, Yelp etc.) were dead ends. The only way Al Miranda will call you back is to call him on a new number you havenu2019t used before u2018 and then tell you a pack of lies how heu2019s been out of the country or very ill. This means he is still scamming the unaware public out there. AFM is a scam u2018 BEWARE do not get taken!!! We too reiterate DO NOT USE OR EVEN CONSIDER. Learn from this nightmare just short of six months having paid nothing to show for it and still running after refund.
