    "Again like the above, paid a deposit, nothing. Have taken Ross to small claims and he has recd an order to pay up but still nothing. I would like to get together with other people he has done this to and take this to the police as he should not be able to get away with this. I have been advised by the courts that we have strength in numbers and can actually do him for Fraud. Please contact me if you would like to look into this. "

    "After getting a quote from payless fencing to put a boundary fence in together with the neghbor & paying Ross $2000 deposit. In which a few hours later my neighbor came across his feedback on here, in which I rang & cancelled the deal & told him to keep $500 for his troubles in which he promised he would come around next day to drop off money, which never happend. After repeated calls & emails to which were never replied to. I remembered I had his home address in which i did I turned up out of the blue 4 months later. I finally managed agreed to get money out of of $550 per fornight in which the first payment i got then it stopped. So repeated calls again it started @ $100 per fornight after numours excuses & lies & getting his wife involved whom said she had no idea I finally got my money back. Even after he said to me that he is now out of business & is no longer doing fencing in which i found very hard to believe.

    Would never ever recommend any one to use this guy & for those that are trying to get your money if you still have original quote it will have his address on it & i suggest u do a cold call at his house & confront him. IF that fails report to the police & take it to the disputes tribuneral

    "After six months of trying to get my money back I have finally passed to the Police. He took the 50% deposit for the job and never came back. I have over 100 text messages promising to bring it to me every week over this period, and nothing. A total liar, con artist, and obviously living on other peoples money dishonestly.
    I will be contacting Fair go to hopefully avoid anyone else being ripped off like this, seems there\'s a heap of people he\'s stolen from out there.

    "Unfortunately we did see these reviews on no cowboys before we used Payless Fencing found on trade me. Ross was very efficient to quote in the weekend and required a 50% deposit upfront which we paid. There were many false promises that he would show up and eventually he just ignored our calls and texts to try and get job finished. After some pressure, job was complete to a satisfactory standard, but he caused us much un-due stress and we would NOT recommend him to ANYONE - be wary!!!!"

    "Con man, thief,..having to involve Police to try and get some of my money back, This man should NOT be in business.NO communication, promises to come and work but never turns up...keeps making excuses.
    Unreliable, shoddy workmanship, (don\'t believe he is even a builder) he scams people. I had to get his work re done (floor for shed) sub standard work, tiring to cut costs!! Asks for money to get materials but doesn\'t get them!! then you never see him again.
    DO NOT use PAYLESS will be very very disappointed, you will not get the work done and he will abscond with your money!!

    Hard to think he is still operating, he needs to be exposed. Thanks No Cowboys for allowing us to do this.

    "This man should not be in business.Insisted on cash cheques as he didn\'t know his bank details !! He quoted for new fence plus an extra $200 for removal & cleanup of existing fence..Also requested an extra $100 to replace part of the concrete base.On completion the fence looked OK but was partially obscured by the rubbish.and on inspection later the concrete base is very rough & 1 post hole has no concrete. He\'d put large stones in to hide it. Unfortunately I paid him his final cheque with the assurance he would return the following day to clean up. 5 phonecalls(4 of which were on answerphone )& an email no sign of him.Finally my Son & I cleaned up.Wish i had known about \" No more Cowboys\""

    "We paid this guy a 50% deposit to carry out work on our behalf. However we didn\'t end up needing him, as we carried the work out ourselves. Despite efforts to get our money back we still have not recieved it. He has all the excuses. Won\'t recoomend this guy to anyone."

    "Payless Fencing, Ross McDermott
    Price good.
    Job adequately done and on time
    Issues with warping tops of palings and promised fitting of additional post. Ross promised to do many times and never done. Disappointed that good start ended this way with 90% okay job.
