|11:19 pm - Mike Preston|
Few years ago I was ripped off by an HVAC guy named Mike Preston who promised to install a geothermal furnace and ran away with our down payment. His original company was called Max Air Geothermal which went bankrupt, later on I learned that this was not the first, and sadly it wasn't the last since he later created Fairway Mechanical through which was also ripping off people according to few commenter who visited the blog (Thanks guys for sharing your stories), in fact one user said that he is ripping banks off now, nice! So I decided to check whatever happened to his company and sure enough the website was down saying that it "has been suspended due to non-payment" well that sounds like Mike Preston alright.... I hope they can get their money!
Anyway, the thing is that I am not sure how such crooks can stay outside of jail and keep repeating their fraud activities without police ridding people out of them, quite surprising. His fraud has been commited against dozens of people yet he is still out and about, more importantly, how can such a scumbag live with themselves? How can they sleep at night?

sentencing come one come all
We're the family featured in the Star articles. Mike is being sentenced tomorrow (October 15, 2012) up at Newmarket courtroom T2 at 9:00am, after pleading guilty on all charges (related to the docket on our file and several other families). We were defrauded by him in 2008 - it's taken 4 years for this day to come!!!
I strongly encourage everyone, especially you recently defrauded people, to show (freak him out), touch base and connect with the crown and possibly set up a new docket (or set the wheels in motion). I'd like to set up a FB page with our stories under his name. I'll take pix tmrw.

Re: sentencing come one come all
Thanks for the update. Unfortunately I did not read your comment until now, so I guess I missed the chance to go to court.
I am glad that justice is finally being served! Please keep us updated on whatever happened.

Unfortunately he got me too for a large sum. I'm glad to hear he has finally has been caught, hopefully he will get a lengthy sentence and have to watch out when hes in the shower too. I know he was mixed up with a HVAC company in Hamilton on Parkdale Ave, I think they were just the same as him too.
I do have the address and also the licence plate number of his vehicle if anyone wants them.
