Hired Matthew Tuft (one of the names recommened by swing set company) to put together grandchildrens play swing set. Gave a deposit of $125.00 on 5-31-2015 Yes I have a signed contract. Wanted to be paid with cash ;but the swing set was being installed at my daughte’rs house in PA. Gave my daughter a check from us to be filled out by my daughter. Said he could install the swing set the following Saturday on 6-6-2015. When he arrived with his helper on Saturday he demanded to be paid in full before starting the job. Said he didn’t have any money on him to pay his helper. My daughter gave Matthew Tuff the check. He then left and returned a couple of hours later. He cashed the check immediately. Started to put the swing set together. Then decided the swing set had to be moved over, and wanted another $175.00 My son-in-law said no way. He left with his helper ,and said he would return the following day (Sunday) to complete the job. He never returned the next day. My husband tried calling him on his cell phone which is 1 570-982-1714 ,and he would not answer. We contacted the police in PA and they referred me to my local police department; because we were the ones who signed the check. Police from my local police department contacted him ,and he answered his cell phone. He said we were harrassing him with phone calls. He also said (to the police) that he would finish the job by the upcoming Wednesday weather permitting or definitely by the following Friday. He showed up on Friday just to take his laddar and table that he left behind ,and said he would NOT complete the job unless he received $175.00 additional money. He told my husband on at least five phone calls that he was on his way to finish the job and never showed up. We contacted his helper and he said that Matthew Tuft has done this many times before and is a Liar. I contacted the swing set companyn(Cedar Summit Play Sets) which had his name on a list of people to be recommended as an installer. They removed his name immediately. He found out that we contacted the swing set company ,and called my husband on cell phone very angry and abusive. He said he would see us in court ,and we were harrassing him. He is a rip off artist-Theif-Liar-Scam Artist. Now we need to file a police complant ,and take him to small claims court which is going to cost us more money. I do not want to see anybody else scammed by Matthew Tuft………..It is now 4 weeks later ,and swing set is not put together. We just hired somebody else to do the job which is costing us another $200.00. Just remember Matthew Tuft What goes around comes around and you will be scammed one day and see how you feel???? .
