Contractor Scam Fraud Alert!!!

  • Report #5YD3I
  • Reporter JAKEYMPHRO

I want to inform people about our interactions with a scam artist contractor out of the LgGrange Ga Area, he is originally from Hogansville Ga. His name is Kevin Earl McGhee and he is doing business as McGhee Construction. I am concerned he will take advantage of other people in the Georgia area of Atlanta, Columbus, Lagrange, and near by Alabama towns.  He claims to be a licensed home builder and has built homes in the past but after the work started here at my property it was obvious by the quality of the work not being up to ANY building standards or codes he was a scam artist and a thief. He does 100% shoddy work and keeps ALL the money that was suppose to be used to pay vendors for their portion of our job. As of today Kevin Earl McGhee has cashed approximately $105,000.00 in checks at our local bank and we have several vendors who have not been paid for their part in our job instead of Kevin Mcghee using our money to pay for materials he kept the money instead.  We do not want other people getting ripped off by him or his company. He also does a lot of metal roof work. If you see McGhee metal roofs or McGhee construction on Craigslist advertising services from Atlanta Ga, Newnan Ga, LaGrangeGa, ...PLEASE STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS MAN. He can not build homes as he is not a licensed home builder for the state of Alabama and he is not a licensed home builder for the state of Georgia either. We had major cracks in our retaining wall and at least 12-15 voids in the wall. The wall and slab is now in the the process of being torn down/ cut out and hauled out and redone at our expense..... The dirt under the slab was NOT packed and now the dirt is washing out from under the slab and the slab is now cracked. This all occurred only 1 month after the retaining wall and slab were done. We didn’t get our garage built because we found out he was not licensed to do the job and the state of Alabama’s Home Licensure Board shut down our job site. As of today we have paid Kevin McGhee of LaGrange Ga approximately $105,000.00 and the actual” work done by him appraised for 25-30k. We do not know where our remaining funds of $80,000.00-$85,000.00 went. He will not provide any receipts or proof of purchase for any materials. Also trusses were ordered from Roberts Components from LaGrange Ga totaling approximately $13,000.00 that were NOT paid for by Kevin McGhee ..... we have no idea where our money went that we put Kevin McGhee in charge of for our Garage build. Total of the build was for $125,000.00. I would be happy to provide pictures of the damages we are now trying to figure out how to repair and also figure out how to finish getting our garbage built. Totals to fix the current damages we have are estimated between $55,000-$65,000.00. Please do not use Kevin Earl McGhee / McGhee Construction from LaGrange Ga. his address for his business is a P.O. Box and he is very hard to find. He has no assets and he has filed multiple bankruptcies in the past. He also has a long and extensive criminal background..... stay away from this man!!!

Just an update for everyone over the holiday weekend (Labor Day weekend 2018). The owner Kevin McGhee of McGhee Construction was claiming to be in Panama City Beach for vacation with his family and wife Kim McGhee. She was bragging about her husband’s plan to file bankruptcy on us and not paying his debts just like he has done on people in the past who have also won judgments against them. Several of those people are listed in their previous bankruptcies.....
