A Message from You

Seems like this blog is serving it's purpose. Here is a posting I received earlier today

Thank you for creating this site. We ordered a leather couch, chair and ottoman through fresh living, in December 2004. Robin assured us that we would receive the furniture in 8 weeks time... but since he "really liked us" he would put a rush on it.. and he'd try to get it in 6 weeks. He was giving us a "really good deal" too. The same furniture in Toronto would have been $3500 more, according to Robin. Wanting to support local business... and fully trusting such a "nice guy"... who had a show on T.V. no less... we paid by cheque... not wanting Robin to be gouged an additional % by putting it on visa. (retro-spectively... a clear misjudgement on my part). They cashed the cheque... and after months of promising the furniture would be in "next week"... we continued to press him on the whereabouts of our furniture... he made all kinds of excuses... saying the company he had ordered the furniture from had been purchased by a company in the States... and they wouldn't honour his cheque... implying that "fresh living" was out the $$ too... one time he said that the furniture had arrived... but in the wrong colour... so he sent it back... and on & on with excuses... We started pressing him for a "certified" cheque to reimburse us (once we heard that there were others facing similar problems with them). More excuses. My husband filed a claim against the store, in small claims court. No reply from the boys... not surprised once we saw the windows out at the old Plaza downtown. Many others are now disillusioned. Try contacting CHUC... there may be some upaid advertising bills. Anyways... we feel very naive to trust those people... who seemed so genuinely nice... but ROBBED us of approx. $7000.00. We are left wondering how it is possible to steal so much from our trusting community and not face criminal charges. I hope this helps with your research... at this time, we would like to remain anonymous.

I am wondering who was running this blog as I am dealing with this con man Evan Karras as well.

Any info would be appreciated.

Wish I had known about this blog last year before we took on a job from Robin Degroot and another job that he referred us to Evan Karras. We have been trying to get paid to no avail. They ignored our calls and emails. Please if someone out there knows their whereabouts, please let us know.

Robin DeGroot is in the news again with a lawsuit from Frankie Tomato's in Markham. The lawsuits are building up. He is under legal review by many people and authorities. I have been contacted by the police for his current location that I do not have. Does anyone know where he has run off to now? Running like a chicken. This lawsuit in Markham and others should be a sign to people.
