We are contractors that work for several construction and real estate giants to complete the projects on which they need our help. We had worked with this company named Aimco in past; completing one of their projects. But this time it was completely different working with them. I saw some deceptive changes that they had come up with. It was for a project in San Diego that we were hired for. I and my team had to help finish them this project as soon as we can. We started working on it, finalizing the payment’s amount and when and how to be paid.
I remember when our job was approximately close to 60% complete, I enquired about our payment. I felt strange receiving no response from them. We had been delivering the receipts of invoices, the payment that was due and everything seemed to be up to date from our side. It was their turn to return us the money back. On not receiving much response from their end, I tried to explain them, how we had already worked for them in the past and that this is not the first time that we had been working for them. I instructed them how they could check in the system about us and get back to us.
They had already asked for our account number and I had already submitted a void check to them for a smoother transfer. They got back to me via email stating how ACH had made the transfer. It was strange how there was no money received on my end! So I got back to them naturally as anybody would, I thought there might have been some misunderstanding. It was weird for me how they tried to avoid me by telling me the same thing again and again. When I asked for the proof of it, I was shown a forged check, similar to the ones that I sent them.
They refused to pay us, saying that they already had. In fact they started blaming us saying we forged our own check! This made no sense to me to forge our own check to get nothing! We owe 20000 USD for the material that we borrowed on their name. Aimco is really going to suffer for what they did to us. I hpe everyone reads about this incident and forget contacting Aimco for any help or assistance. I would like people beware about this enticing firm.
