|11:51 pm - Mike Preston goes to jail!|
UPDATE: Someone is trying to defend Mike's son Chris Preston. They think it is OK to cover up for fraudsters, so despite Chris's covering up for his fraudster dad they think just because he wasn't taking the money himself it still makes him a good kid!! how sad!
WOW! Justice is finally served. After years from having scammed innocent people from their hard earned money, Mike Preston, the crook finally goes to jail. I was contacted by one of the victims and she shared her story and photos.
"He (Mike Preston) got max sentence suggested by the Crown: 6 months PLUS full restitution order. When he gets out, he has 30 days to pay into amounts or goes back to jail. He came dressed in his "costume" - the hapless working man - dirty golf shirt and jeans. He jumped up and tried to beg the judge; "But I need to work..." She told him to sit down and agreed with the crown that the term should be served consecutively (no weekends, not broken up by visits home...YES!!). He started bawling, wiping his eyes. The court was full of burly officers. They cuffed him and took him to jail!!! Right away!! He was asking about his car, asking if he could phone his family - they told him; "You get one call in jail"!! It was a total movie moment. I took pix of him cuffed, and asked him if he remembered telling me all those years ago that there was nothing I could do??? He just shook his head like he was being wronged. The cops escorted him through a crowded waiting room, while we followed and took pix. He would have been utterly humiliated. People were craning to get a good look at this "criminal". Such an important day emotionally. Now on to our architect :P Crown and Consumer Protection would like you to commence an action as well"
Tears now Mike? you have given grief and tears to dozens of innocent families, and you get away with 6 months! that's not even close enough, just be glad that you are only required to return the stolen money and not cover all the damages you caused to those victims. Here are some more photos of the crook.
And finally this:

You can say all you want about mike, he earned it. But Chris has been a victim to this as well so for you to state he is just as guilty is appalling. You can't choose who your parents are but they have the power to deceive the world into thinking your views are related. For all you know Chris has done nothing wrong and mike just used his name to save himself. I know Chris has more of a heart than what you perceive of him. Also I'm owed money from mike so I'm in the same position as many of you. I'm just saying don't be prejudice towards others, we know mike was in charge here he could have very well done all the wrong things using anyone's name as well as his. I don't know all the facts I'm just saying life didn't always happen the way you assume it did... Keep that in mind before you look at Chris.
If Mike owes you money, tell your buddy Chris to get it from his mother... The money is with the family dude, its not with Mike!
Of course Chris can't choose his parents, but he can choose not to cover up for them. He should help those victimized by Mike, not side with Mike and cover up for him.
If you coverup for fraudsters you are participating with the fraud.

You really have no clue what your talking about do you? LOL
You can have fun here on your little internet blog writing what you want but that doesn't make any of it true.
What makes you honestly think the money is with the family? Please give me 3 good reasons "Dude"
lol the ignorance of some people man, it kills me!!
Im waiting for your reasons by the way, and make them believable! No more of this fantasy that you have with the family covering up everything like a giant conspiracy.
thanks for your time "Dude"..haha.. ha..ha
Oh that hit some nerve did it, Chris? Trying to hide in Romania, ha!
You can LOL all you want, the big LOL is on you, Mike is in Jail and although he is hiding the money with the family, he still has to pay it back when he is out, otherwise back to jail.
Not a giant conspiracy. The coverup is real, I talked to you guys directly, and you all did coverup, just be grateful that wasn't brought up with the investigators.

You cant even guess who this is! LOL
rest assured this is not Chris Mr. Dude. And you spoke to the Preston's directly? thats cute so you know for sure then that coverup is most definitely not real chief. You seem to think this but you failed to point out your reason behind your beliefs. Face it, your money is gone. Its not with the family, its not with anyone, the bank took it when he declared bankruptcy and thats where its been all along. What I dont get is how anyone expects to get any money back when the guy is in prison? who's gonna pay it? Thats where you guys screwed up.
Oh by the way, guess where I am now! hahaha
I know who you are. You are one of the three FreshAir clowns: Chris, James or Dave. I have personally spoke to each of you and you shamelessly wanted to steal more money from the victims after Mike's stunt, while trying to cover up for him. You might not remember all the victims, but we all remember you very well.
I did not fail to give the reasons, YOU fail to see them, you guys were covering up for a criminal. Of course all those participating in fraud think they haven't done wrong, but you are on the wrong side of history. Keep it up and you will join Mike sooner or later.
Oh and BTW, I know you are not technology savvy, but you can always be traced even if you hide behind a Romanian or German proxy.
Finally, we didn't screw up, Mike is where he deserves to be, all criminals deserve to be locked up, he will have to pay it back in 6 months, unless his wife wants to keep him in prison and that's where he is screwed.

This is my last post, I honestly am tired of arguing with what appears to be a stubborn 4th grader.
> "I know who you are. You are one of the three FreshAir clowns: Chris, James or Dave."
Again, your wrong. I can guarantee you don't know who I am because we have never met nor spoken to each other. I am here simply because I am defending my life long friend and his family from you and your blog that appears to be angry at something 90% of the time.
>"I did not fail to give the reasons, YOU fail to see them, you guys were covering up for a criminal."
Yes, you did fail to give me reasons. I requested that you state at least three as to why you think the family has all of your money and you listed zero. You just went on about how its all a big cover up but provided nothing to suggest that in any way, you did not provide any points to support your argument.
>"Keep it up and you will join Mike sooner or later."
False, no other crime has been committed regardless of your irrational thinking.
>"Oh and BTW, I know you are not technology savvy, but you can always be traced even if you hide behind a Romanian or German proxy."
I did not claim to be technologically savvy nor did I claim to not be traceable. If you feel like you have the know how to find me then go right ahead Gordon.
Anyways nice chatting with you, have a nice day :)
BS. If you are not part of those participating in the fraud you wouldn't be hiding behind a proxy. Obviously you have something to hide.
Second, if you are defending your friend because "he is your friend", you have no idea what happened and you have no right to attack the victims of the crime.
I am a victim of a crime for which someone has gone to prison. And the FreshAir clowns participated by covering up for that crime. If you claim that you are not one of them you have no business in disputing what actually happened between us, you don't know that I did speak to them personally and they willingly participated in the cover up. If you find nothing wrong with covering up for a crime-even after everyone knew what was going on, well that speaks volume to your ethics, or lack of.
Damn right I am angry, someone came to my own house and stole my money. I will not let that go, and will make sure to document this crime and those who participated in that crime. You on the other hand seem to be angry at the victims!
Finally, say what you will, we are not going to get bullied by someone who sympathizes with criminals, be it you are one of these criminals or "their friend".

That's for a judge to decide, not some slanderous whining of the word fraudster "Toronto dude." Innocent til proven guilty.
Ethics are not up to the judge to decide. And the clowns of Fresh Air might not be prosecuted for covering up for Mike, but they will all be judged by us, the people.

all of you arguing
i am very surprised at the way you talk here ,i do know Mike personally and he is a crook there is no if or but about it he has taken advantage of me i have lost a lot of money with him and i do know i will never see it again it is a lesson learned one more thing even until the months before court with no money whats so ever he went to the USA for a week with his son for go karting andspend money also he was renting an expensive house and wanted to be a rich guy even after he went bankrupt he didn not care or he will not care in the future he does lie-lie-lie-lie and lie he will do that for the rest of his life and he will take advantage of anyone that will let him and they will just open your eyes and do not make my same mistake but somehow he will pay for it if it is not here will be in the next life but he will ,if i see him crossing the road my brakes on my truck will not work and i will not stop to see if he is ok he is what he is stay away from him
Re: all of you arguing
No arguing with you here. Stay away from that man and his family.
He sold his house for $930,000 so he *does* have the money, but its in his wife's name. I find it bizarre that his wife prefers to keep him in jail rather than pay up. What a family!
Please don't run him over with your truck, I don't advocate violence, he will pay up one day or another, he already went to jail for some of his crimes.

Fraudster out of jail

Re: Mike preston @ EnergyComfortCanada in London On
Wow, thanks for the heads up. I hope the people of London Ontario will find this.

I personally know the Preston family better then anyone here on this thread, argue with me, I dare you. I've seen and heard everything. For you guys to make uneducated guesses and assumptions is ridiculous. The money isn't "hiding with the family" they all work hard to pay for what they have. Mike may have crossed the line a few times with his company here and there but do you think he is alone? Was it just him? No, his partners had just as much to do with it as he did. Stop bashing on the family. They did nothing wrong to any of you. And "Dude" you're a fuckin joke! You think your journalist but you're not. Most of your articles are such a stretch from the truth. I find it hilarious, you're a joke and no one takes you seriously. You chirp guys for being anon, but your screen name is "Dude". You never once contacted the Preston family. Stop trying to seem educated when you have NOTHiNG! Good day dude.
First of all, you don't know whom I did talk or didn't talk to, unless your name is Chris, then you have no idea who I am, because I did talk to Chris.
Second, it is a well known fact that the money is with the family, so don't give us BS.
Finally, you know what I call those that defend criminals? thugs. So yes, you are a thug, go play with your criminal buddies.
PS. nobody claim to be a journalist, you need to learn what how "the internets" works lol

Re: OK thug
I was just working for this scam artist in London Ontario. And he is still at it. He just burned me and my helper for 2weeks worth of wages. For a total of $3000.
oh man! I am really sorry to hear this.
Next time you work with someone you don't know look their name up on the internet, you might be surprised what you find.
As for Mike Preston, I hope you can somehow get your money in the future.

Mike Preston scam artist
London ont, Mike Preston started Energycomfort Canada with Dave Darby. Still ripping customers off and employees too. Both men have no formal HVAC education and it shows. Prices they charge are unforgiveable. Extremely shody work. Dont expect to see them around for long.

Re: Mike Preston scam artist
Wow, they are back at it!
I think some people need to be locked up for good.
Re: Mike Preston scam artist
Some user posted this:
"Yes Mike is back at it.... Trying to recover deposits made to him for work that he did not completed
Here is his home address:
" (Sorry, I removed the address, I prefer not to publish private info, but feel free to share details about the incident itself)
Unfortunately, it appears that Mike is a master scam artist that will continue to steal from people, hopefully he gets into prison this time for good.

Re: Mike Preston scam artist
Now apparently working under Energy Comfort Canafa but claims to be in financial problems with his partner in crime Dave...took a good sum of money from me towards a deposit for work that has yet to be done, and now claims he does not have the money to complete the job but the value of work completed is only 30% complete of the deposit amount....where is the rest of my money ?? Seems like jail did not do the job for him.... Maybe requires an "old school" lesson!
Re: Mike Preston scam artist
Sorry to hear that!
Sounds like same old lies he used when doing our job. I wish everyone finds this blog before hiring Mike.
