Another person claims to have been scammed by Barry County tree service
DELTON, me. A Barry County tree service featured by the FOX 17 Problem Solvers is accused of taking money and not getting the job done.
Now a third person claims that they too were ripped off by the same person.
A person speaking on condition of anonymity tells FOX 17 problem solvers that they hired Darren Huffman of Darren’s Tree Service to cut down a damaged tree this May.
A receipt shows that the person spent $ 500 in cash on a $ 1,000 job, a job they say Huffman never completed.
They considered going to small claims court and wrote a certified letter to Huffman, who mailed a letter back.
The letter came with $ 250. In it, Huffman claims he is medically incapable of performing his duties, but keeps $ 250 for labor and debris removal.
The person we spoke to says they should have got all their money back and that Huffman didn’t do anything.
We tried to get in touch with Huffman several times and on Wednesday we found a new address on that receipt so we went to visit.
A woman walking outside the house was surprised by our visit and asked if we were there for a specific person or customer.
She went back in and we waited a few minutes before we saw them close the blinds.
Still not a word from Darren.
