I hired a contractor by using Home Advisor.com. Big mistake of course and I have learned that I did all the wrong things when I hired this company. Now I am out over 5K. I am currently trying to file a judgement against this contractor, but I don't have a current address. Can anyone help me? I have tried people finder, white pages, etc. but it seems that this guy and his partner have had so many addresses that I can't pin him down. I don't know if it is proper to state his name in this forum, HELP!!

The contractor is C & R general contracting. Sound familiar?

"C & R general contracting" Always use quotes in searches, it weeds out all the junk.

The search I did shows them to be at the corner of Genesee and South
I do not recall seeing them there.

Eight reviews, two not good.

Their web site http://www.candrgeneralcontracting.com is no longer valid, if it ever was.

Check with the Attorney General's office

Congratulations! Did you ever contact the AG's office regarding C&R?
