Tim Wallace's Home Maintenance is *** Man, Fraud

Tim Wallace goes around Mecklenburg County and Charlotte, NC commiting fraud on unsuspecting people. Claims to be licensed HVAC or Plumbing or General Contractors or Electrician. He is none of these. No insurance or anything. I have seen many postings about him.

Bottom line about Tim Wallace (TW) from Denver/Sherrills Ford, NC area - he says anything to get a job which he has no skills or qualifications to even do. He will use the wrong parts and portray to you that the job was completed and collect the money and when you inspect his work it is faulty.

He purposely installed the wrong parts on my friends AC Systems and charged person for repeated call backs which totalled $1000. The wrong part he installed could have blew the compressor and ruined the whole $4000 unit but what does he care.

Tim Wallace AC Repair is a complete scam and he is a *** man.

He used to go under the name Better Choice.Always has money problems.

He has a sister in the area.

Just beware, his work is faulty and he probably is a scam artist like people claim.Very raggedy looking guy.

Only people with teeth like TW Wallace at the age of 40 are junkies.Guys been pulling the same scam in area for years.

Messed up friends AC unit. Also tells people he is licensed plumber or Electrician.

Takes money and does not do work as promised.Just maybe gets money for his habits..

Agree 100% with person.He claimed credentials to me and gave me a quote to replace a 3 year old AC unit saying it I needed a 2.5 ton AC and I currently had a 2 ton.

Took money.

I found another company and they said unit was fine, I just had a hole/leak in the duct in the attic.Tim Wallace cooned me too.

I had AC trouble and someone refered a Tim Wallace to me a year back.Looks like same guy.

Anyway, he says my whole AC is no good and rights a quote to install a brand new Goodman for $2000 yet says he can't pull a permit becuase he has no license. He asks me for $1500 upfront to pay for AC and then $500 for labor when done. Yeh, right!!! He says he works for J & J Sheet Metal, Heating and AC out of Denver and Maiden, NC but does weekend jobs on his own.

I call another company and they said all you is just 3 lbs of freon and its been working fine ever since. The guy is other absoluetly incompetent of just a flat out scammer, thief, fraudster. I think the later. Any response Wallace tw4511@yahoo.com.

Glad I did not fall for his *** job.

Still have his written quote/proposal.Will scan it and ad to site later.

Then operated under 704-483-4595 which he screened the calls.

Tim Wallace does A/C work on the side (thus illegally).No permit, no insurance, no manufacturer's warranty since he not licensed)I know of his work.

I have repaired a house he worked on.

If you think you are saving using someone like him - will cost you triple in the long run.Tim leave it to professionals and stick to apartment maintainence (sweeping floors and cleaning).

I don't think he hurting enough to pay Catwaba County $7 in last years taxes.I know off many people Tim Wallace has scammed saying he is a J & J HVAC employee, he is licensed HVAC in NC.

Just Google his name. Guys a *** man working out of trailor park. Seriously, do you know the guy.

I personally know a half dozen people he scammed.Why don't you tell him to defend his reputation here and now on this site!!!

Are all commenters about this person from the same family/clan or did they graduate from the same English School?Anyone that passed a standard writing test can tell it's the same person/people by their sentence structure and the phrases they use.

Please...Get a life.. better yet get some class. Just because someone is late on tax payments they are subject to this. Might as well incarcerate 90% of the US legal citizens.

Any one can look up public info.

I paid TW Tim Wallace to fix my windows in cash upfront and he sent a kid to do the work.Kid did not finish job and did it wrong.

I repeatedly called TW who screens his calls and never called back. Stole my money for fixing house. Very bad man. I would never hire again.

Bad work, steals money and immoral person. I can't beleive I call and leave many messages and he just ignored me all the time. Never ever trust this man.

He also is called TW and company was A Better Choice Home Improvement.He is unethical.

Know the guy you are talking about.He used to steal electricity from Duke Power by rigging the meter device and got caught a few times.

Not surprising he is suspected of drug dealing and stuff.

Defnately a shady character.Never pay upfront is best advice when dealing with contractors.

Evidence manager gets 3 years

By Lisa Emmerich, Sentinel Staff Writer | June 23, 2005

DELAND -- A former Volusia County Sheriff's Office evidence manager was sentenced to three years in prison and 10 years' probation Wednesday for stealing nearly $500,000 worth of drug evidence from the DeLand compound he supervised. Tim Wallace of New Smyrna Beach pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to traffic cocaine and official misconduct. He was arrested in February 2004 after investigators said he altered records and replaced some drug evidence with sod to try to hide the thefts.

Tim Wallace (TW) Scam Artist operating out of Denver, NC

Houston, Texas 29 comments
Not resolved

I am writing you to warn of a home improvement scam artist based in your area. I have traced him to a trailer house in your area with the help of an investigator. He claims to be licensed EPA Refrigerant for AC Freon purposes and to have an NC Contractors and HVAC License. All are untrue. He also claims to be bonded and insured. He prays on houses about to be sold and can make the repairs a buyers request from the home inspection report.

He ripped me off and I referred him to my neighbor and he ripped them off to and then disappears. He prays on elderly and single-mothers.

He goes by the name TW or Tim Wallace and business name A Better Choice Home Improvement. I have traced many other he has ripped of in Union, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and other nearby counties.

I have attached his picture and describe him as 6 feet tall, long hair in a pony-tail, really bad teeth (brown and rotten) and skinny. He is a heavy smoker and is thought to be a drug-user. He is into guns and usually carries a pistol. He usually drives a pickup truck. I have been told he might be a Sex Offender from another State. He lives in a trailor at 6046 LINEBERGER RD, DENVER, NC 28037.

If you have been ripped off by him contact me because we are working with the NC Attorney Generals Office about him on consumer fraud charges.

For more info email me.

TW Wallce You sound like a piece of ***, heretofor referred to as POS.Mr Wallace you did not get an education past 5th grade as is evidenced in your retort to the complainant.

So you steal money from the elderly and the less fortunate, you can't find your way around a toothbrush either, nasty. Do you kiss your boyfriend with that nasty mouth? You are also a sexual offender you POS .For that alone you should be kicked to *** and back. I would like to curb stomp your remaining 3 or 4 teeth.

Can't do anything honestly huh?

we'll find you son and when we do, you will wish you had stayed in jail, at least there you might a little protection you POS.see you soon.

He is what is called a part changer. Does not know AC sytems just changes parts. May do it right or may not do it right but either way he gets paid and you might kiss your cash good bye. He does not work for J&J Sheet Metal.

I know this for fact.If he says he does call J&J and let them know.

I am the original poster.Tim Wallace installed incompatible Goodman Coil on my Rheem AC, did not install PVC drain or refill freon.

System never worked but he was paid. Charged me $50-100 for repeated call-backs, about $1000 overall. Had to pay company over $1000 to redo all Tim's work.

I STAND BY MY POST.Yes, Tim I want a full refund.

Just for the know it all Freddie.I am not this Mr.

Wallace nor have I ever been. You talk of comments being just minutes apart. Then you must be Mrs. Reed and promob due to the fact that these posts are just minutes apart.

I know Mr. Wallace. He is not a drug user and has never been a drug user nor is he a sex offender here or any where else. God have mercy on you for your actions.

We all have to answer for what we do, including how we treat each other. Does it make you all feel better about yourself to put someone down the way you are doing? Talking trash about them. If you aren't satisfied with one's work then condemn their work.

You are going on a personal attack. Is it worth it? Tim Wallace has never done work for me but he has sat beside me in Church for many a year. He does not take advantage of the elderly or any such things.

It's like the pot calling the kettle black when you talk about someone based on their appearance. A decent human being would not make these type of remarks. If you are so superior why did you not check references/license and record before hiring someone. I have to agree with C on the part of you being partly to blame.

Common sense goes a long way. I'm done with wasting my time on people of this mindset.

I hope that Mr.Wallace takes the decent path and sues everyone on this site for Slander.

Reading this article has been very entertaining.It amazes me the links people will go to when upset.

My advice to anyone posting complaints via the internet is to be very careful and think your actions through. Posting things like someone being a Suspected sex offender and Suspected drug addict is a lawsuit waiting to happen. These are serious accusations that slander individuals and unless there is proof can also cost the accuser a great deal of time and money in a court of law. Deflamation of character and Slander are charges that the courts take very seriously and posting pictures after doing so only makes their case stronger.

People must not realize that once something is put on the internet it remains there. Lawyers know this and also have access to URL addresses to find those responsible. You should be ashamed of yourself for posting that kind of information along with an address without proof. You had a repair job done by this idividual 3 years ago.

You have never complained until now. At this time you have sent numerous emails in a span of 4 to 5 days demanding a refund plus extra or you would start your trashing of his reputation.

The legal term is extortion.If you have a warranty on said repaired part it would have been honored as long as it was still under said warranty.
