BEWARE HEARTLAND CONTRACTING (FRAUD)

BEWARE HEARTLAND CONTRACTING 1 thumbnailBEWARE HEARTLAND CONTRACTING 2 thumbnail
license info: Another TOTAL fraud.
"Heartland Contracting is a 20 year old company that can handle all your interior needs."

Why do people have to lie here? One look at the Missouri Secretary of State office confirms no company by the name of 'Heartland Contracting Services LLC' exists now or at any time in the past 20 years. This is a fraud which is why they advertise how cheap they are and will beat bids. They have not been in business 20 years much less one. Their name is made up and does not legally exist. They lied and blatantly and clearly don't care that smart people can check and find this out. Did the lies stop? No. "licensed in st louis county, lincoln, warren and st charles county" You cannot be licensed in multiple counties. A business, if holding a license, would be in the county they reside in. NO ONE IS LICENSED IN MULTIPLE COUNTIES, PERIOD. To say this entire ad is nothing but blatant lies is the understatement of the year. And the funny thing is - THIS GUY THINKS HE CAN GET AWAY WITH IT.

Be very careful when you hire here and always verify a contractors claims. Many lie through their teeth here which harms all the legit contractors who advertise here. Three seconds spent searching will reveal the lies of most just like now.

There are two LEGITIMATE Heartland Contracting companies in Missouri. Both are in the Kansas City area. One created in 2021 the other in 2009 so NEITHER have existed for 20 years. NOW.. the person running the ads (or some random person) who lives in the Troy, MO area DID have a now expired DBA or 'Doing Business As' which is known as a FICTICIOUS NAME REGISTRATION.

This is NOT A LEGIT BUSINESS. A DBA cannot be insured. This person is seriously posting their company as a LLC when no such LLC is or has ever been registered. Even the fake name they were using (theirs or likely someone else) was only created in 2008 so again no 20 year old company here. No legal business here. Lying about being an LLC. The name listed to the fake name is George Sherman so not sure who 'Alex' is running these ads. More than likely not even the same person who used the name in the past. More than likely everything in the ad is made up garbage. More than likely the entire thing is a lie. If anything this person has been operating illegally for 20 years because they have never been legit.

Make sure ad has company name.
Make sure ad has phone number.
LOOK BOTH UP AND MAKE SURE A REAL COMPANY PULLS UP.
MAKE SURE THE COMPANY IS LISTED IN THE SAME NAME AS THE PERSON YOU TALK TO.
MAKE SURE THEY CAN SHOW VALID INSURANCE.
IF THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND 20 YEARS SOMETHING WILL SHOW UP.
IF THEY LIED THEN YOU WON'T FIND ANYTHING. LIKE NOW.
