HE HAS AN ARREST RECORD FOR CONTRACTOR FRAUD – SEE BELOW
Beware of Mike Perry aka Michael Perry | Michael’s Remodeling | Mike Perry Remodeling | Associated with Brad Perry / Bradley Perry ( son of Michael Perry ) often work together.
Michael Bruce Perry is 66 years old as of 4/28/2013 and collects Social Security as well as supplemental benefits due to his “poverty”. Evidently the Social Security Administration is not aware that he is a “contractor” and the owner of a “business”. It is interesting that a man that filed a DBA in Dallas, TX (see below) and has collected thousands of dollars from homeowners for contract work (much of it he did not complete) could be so poor as to get supplemental benefits from Social Security. From November to Feb 11, 2013 he collected $6325 from me alone. As you will see, he took $3100 from me which was for materials and ran off. He used my money as a down payment on a new truck and blew the rest.
Why did I give him money for materials?
We had a verbal agreement wherein I would provide Michael Bruce Perry with this website, DallasRemodelingPros.com, the logo, branding, company name, SEO work and promotion in return for his labor in doing sidewalks, patios and driveways. I would be paying for all materials (concrete forms, rebar, sand, fill dirt as well as cedar posts and banding for an outdoor room that would later be built on one of the patios. Michael Perry would be installing the cedar posts and bands and part of this agreement. The remainder of the room would be a different job later to be paid by me. I would be paying the concrete company directly for the cement.
Michael Bruce Perry‘s labor would go toward paying for my services as described above. Michael Perry said he needed $3100 for ALL materials (excluding concrete) in order to “get started right away”. On Feb 11, 2013 I gave him 31 $100 bills ($3100) in cash. I had him sign 2 copies of a handwritten acknowledgement that he was accepting $3100 to get the materials as listed above. He was supposed to begin delivering the materials the next day and have them all delivered by Friday and be working on the job.
He did not do that. He left town with my money. When I called he did not answer. After many calls he told me he had to leave on an emergency and would be back. Thus began the game of tag with Michael Perry. I did not know at the time he intended to scam me, nor did I know that he already spent my money on himself…
Call after call he would not answer. He ignored text messages. After talking to others he has victimized I learned that was what he did to them also.
Michael Perry has relied on homeowners not being able to track him down or take any action against him due to his knowledge of how contractor disputes are handled. However, a distinct pattern of fraud has emerged as I have investigated him. My investigation has led to several other homeowners who have been scammed by him. THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT. THIS IS A CLEAR PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR. THIS IS PREMEDITATED FRAUD.
I have asked nicely, pleaded to get my money back. He never returns calls or texts.
He did some work digging and laying out a few forms, which were left for weeks at a time and ruined by rain. He knows how to drag things on and keep a homeowner going. He made excuses and I trusted him. But on March 26, 2013 I had finally had enough. It was clear that after more than a week of not hearing from him that something was very wrong.
Our last interactions: When he asked me for money for sand I replied what about the $3100 I gave you.. How much of that is left? He got mad and that was the last time we spoke.
in the same discussion he said we did not need rebar for the sidewalk. It was obvious that he wanted to cut every corner and avoid providing the materials that he took my $3100 for. very early in the process he told me that he bought the materials and would bring them as he needed them. In another discussion he said he would buy them as he went along. In our argument about the materials money I asked him where was my money and how much of it was left. This made him mad. IMAGINE HOW MAD I WAS. It was not obvious he has bad been deceiving me and taking advantage of my good nature. I gave him the benefit of the doubt over and over.
Michael Perry took my money under false pretenses. He never intended to go through with our deal. He just wanted to get that materials money and try to make it look like he did some labor so that any dispute would be civil and not criminal, thus allowing him to run off with my money with little to no recourse.
However, because he signed for the $3100for materials (not labor) and did not deliver the materials this is a case of fraud.
He also violated out verbal agreement by not providing the labor he promised, yet he used the logo, branding, slogan and business name. As part of our verbal agreement all of the work was to be done BEFORE March 29 because of the foundation work that would be done. This also explains further my frustration with Michael Perry ignoring me as that deadline approached.
I have learned he spent a sizable portion of my materials money on a down payment for a new truck right after he got my money. He then left town in that truck. This man is a diabolical scam artist. I am exposing the truth and gathering evidence so that he may be prosecuted and held accountable. CONTACT ME IF HE HAS RIPPED YOU OFF TOO. Several others have contacted me and we are joining together to share information to prosecute him and recover our money.- Use the contact form to the right.

HE SCAMMED ME 2/11/2013
LINK TO MY “RIP OFF REPORT” – MICHAEL BRUCE PERRY SCAMMER
Michael Perry signed a contract stating he was accepting money for materials. He did not deliver those materials. He ran off with my money and refused to return calls or messages. We had no written contract regarding labor. There was a verbal agreement where he would do the labor in return for this website and logo as well as SEO.
Although he did not do the job he is using the name and logo and has now devalued and diluted the branding, name and website.
I created this website and I own that logo. He does not have my permission to use it. HE DID IN FACT USE THIS LOGO ON DOOR HANGERS AND BUSINESS CARDS HE HAD MADE:
MICHAEL PERRY HAS RUINED THE VALUE OF THIS WEBSITE, THE BRAND NAME, SLOGAN AND LOGO. So, in addition to taking my materials money he has destroyed the value of this website and brand that I have built and invested time and money into. As stated before he was to receive this website, logo and brand in return for his labor doing the concrete job at my house.
A month after he was given the money little progress had been made and there were no materials to speak of beyond some cheap mdf. I asked him where they were and he said they were paid for and he would bring them over as he needed them. I asked him to bring them over he changed the subject and then disappeared again. When I finally got him on the phone I confronted him about the money and asked him where it was. I told him that if he did not want to proceed to bring my money back. Since then he has refused all calls and texts.
He had my $3100 as of 2/11/2013. I have repeatedly asked him to return my money and he does not reply. I have heard through 3rd parties he spent the money within days of getting it from me on himself and that he has no intention of returning it. I have repeatedly asked for my money back. He will not talk to me.
Here is a good question: Why would I trust this guy in the first place..?
I met him when he was on the crew that PELLA sent to my home a few years ago to install over $14,000 worth of windows. He and the crew did a fine job.
He left me his business card and years later I contacted him regarding installing a larger window in the bathroom.
November 5 – 8 2013 I paid Michael Perry $1000 to install a window in the master bathroom and $2125 to install a sliding glass door in the master bedroom outside wall. He was paid by me $3125 in cash to do those 2 jobs. Interestingly in both of these cases there a was a deposit I gave him, but there was also a significant payoff when he was done. And we agreed about the sliding glass door deal before the window was done, but no deposit until that job was done.
During the sliding glass door job we planned to do the concrete job where he would work off the cost of the website in labor and I would pay for materials.
So, I had no idea that Michael Perry would run off with my money like that. I thought he was a hard working guy. WELL I HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY. But, I am not giving up and letting him get away with it. You shouldn’t either if he has scammed you. If you are researching him regarding a contract job think carefully about that decision.
I have since collected a lot of info about this man. I have talked to people that know him and have been scammed by him. He is a highly skilled con artist. He knows how to skirt the criminal justice system and turn things into a civil matter. He relies on people giving up.
According to others scammed by MICHAEL PERRY…Here is how he does it. He does a contract with a homeowner and takes 50% deposit. He brings a small amount of materials and does a little work. He tries to stretch things out as much as possible. Showing up one day in the afternoon leaving a few hours later and then gone for days to a week. He will come back and try to get more money saying he underbid or things are not included. Then when he knows that the homeowner will not give him more money up front, yet there is a lot of work to do..he runs off. He knows that at that point it is a civil matter and he claims that he worked for that money and was owed more. He knows it is tough to go after him and pretty much everyone just gives up and takes the loss. He then goes on his merry way emboldened to do it again and again and again.
If this man wants your money as a deposit or for materials up front do not give it to him or you will most likely join the growing legion of people whom he has scammed out of their money.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY THIS MAN, MICHAEL PERRY, USE THE CONTACT FORM TO SEND ME A MESSAGE. I HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT HIM AND WILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE IT TO YOU SO YOU CAN GO AFTER HIM TO RECOVER YOUR MONEY TOO. SEND ME YOUR STORIES, STATEMENTS AND PROOF AND I WILL POST THE INFO. Let’s stop him from victimizing other homeowners!

PS: THANK GOD HE SCAMMED ME AND I DID NOT START PROMOTING HIM WITH THIS WEBSITE AND SEO! IT WOULD HAVE ENABLED HIM TO SCAM SO MANY PEOPLE.!
ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN AGGRAVATING THAT HE HAS RIPPED ME OFF, I AM RELIEVED TO KNOW THAT I DID NOT END UP USING MY PROMOTIONAL SKILLS TO HELP HIM SCAM OTHERS!
IF I HAD FOUND OUT LATER THAT I DIRECTED LOTS OF CUSTOMERS IN TO THE HANDS OF THIS PROFESSIONAL SCAMMER, MICHAEL BRUCE PERRY, AND THEN HE RIPPED THEM OFF I WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN MORE UPSET THAN I AM NOW!
I would like to get my money back, but as I have learned there are several people ahead of me in line for that. The good news is that people he has victimized have been in contact with me and we are sharing information. Because all attempts to get Michael Perry to return my calls, texts and above all MY MONEY have been ignored I am moving forward with presenting all of my information to law enforcement.
