Scam Alert for Central Neighbors

On Sunday, January 11, 2009, a man presented himself with offering yard/landscape services with a business card for “Full Bloom Landscaping” by Elvis C. Jones. He estimated the job of weeding, trimming, and laying pine straw in my front beds at $200, asking for $100 up front to purchase the pine straw. He came at noon the next day with another man, examined the beds, and gave me a work order form filled out for the job. Then he took my money for the pine straw purchase and I haven’t seen or heard from him since. I have left voice mails on his contact number but after 5 days of calling, his voicemail box is now full. Neighbors, be on the watch for someone claiming to be Elvis C. Jones looking to do yardwork! It may cost you like it has cost me…$100.
