From that point forward, though he agreed that he owed me the refund, he became immature, sarcastic, and belligerent complete with vulgarity, name-calling and now unanswered e-mails. He ultimately sent a check which his bank said could not be cashed before knowing the check number or amount so it was not a stop-payment situation related only to me and likely not an honest mistake of insufficient funds. Had I tried to deposit or cash his check at my own bank I'd have been charged a $35 return check fee.
Since he knows I have nonrefundable airline tickets and I told him that I can't afford to rent a new place until I have the refund, his goal seems to be to prevent me from being able to travel.
As of now, I filed a police complaint, will file a police report if I don't receive valid payment after the required waiting period, and am waiting for my credit card to recoup the $800.
There are virtually no agencies that govern the type of work Mr. Thomas does so if you do transact with him I'd strongly advise doing so with a credit card. He has a Paypal link on his website but Paypal will not intercede in transactions for services.
I'm happy to answer any questions if it will help anyone avoid the type of trouble he caused me.
Ida, whatever you do, do not give up your beloved pet. Keep searching.
