DETROIT (WXYZ) — A Detroit grandmother suffering from multiple sclerosis says a contractor she paid thousands of dollars to install a tub has strung her along for months.
This story serves as a reminder, and any reputable contractor will tell you this: Never pay in full upfront.
“He’s paid in full. I paid him everything. Big mistake. I knew better than that,” said Doris Neal, who paid in full for a tub installation and labor.
But Doris says she went against her better judgment back in June, paying a contractor in full upfront to install a tub.
She paid $1,500 dollars for labor and $1,600 for a tub.
“And I wanted this tub so bad. Because I really needed it for my health,” she told 7 Action News reporter Darren Cunningham.
The 67-year-old says her mobility is limited due to multiple sclerosis and she’s also battling endometrial cancer.
