He trimmed one of the palm trees and started on the next, halfway thru the second one, he asked us if we wanted to have the trees "skinned" for an add'l $200.00, we told him no. we just wanted them trimmed. Next thing we know, we go out to our backyard, he had partly "skinned" one of the trees. I guess he was upset that we did not want to pay the add'l $200.00 so, he apparently left right away and left all of the tree trimmings where they fell from the trees, which included piles of trimming all over the backyard, there was even trimmings in the pool. We had to get someone with a truck to come over and remove all of the trimmings and also had to get in the pool to remove the large tree parts. We were so upset. We tried to call this man at least 5 times to find out why he did not finish the job and left all of the "trash" in our backyard. He never returned our calls. We did not want to pay for a service we never received. We were upset that we had to clean up his mess. So we stopped payment on the $80.00 check. We felt this man tried to railroad us into paying another $200.00 and when we didnt, he quit doing the job. Now today in the mail, apparently he went to one of those check cashing places and "cashed" the check. The check cashing place apparently paid the check to this "guy" as they sent us a letter stating that we have 7 days to pay the "stopped" check or they will sue us. The money was never deducted from our checking account as it WAS stopped. We did not take pictures or anything. Can anyone offer advice on what we can do??
