Another local homeowner says he was ripped off by Blue Springs concrete company, Xtreme Concrete

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. - More complaints are piling up against a Blue Valley concrete company.

Both Missouri’s Attorney General and the Greater Kansas City Better Business Bureau are investigating Xtreme Concrete.

The attorney general is now investigating 6 complaints. The Better Business Bureau has three.

Sean Daugherty has recently filed complaints with both agencies.

Daugherty's backyard currently has a large dirt area bordered by wood where concrete was supposed to be poured for a new patio, fire pit and shade cover or pergola.

There's also a sod and dirt mound.

Daugherty says it's been that way for nearly 3 weeks.

It all started in August when he first agreed to have Xtreme Concrete's Bob Williams complete the job.

"Red flags just started coming after two weeks.  He was very elusive, very hard to get a hold of," said Daugherty.

Daugherty sent an e-mail on Tuesday requesting either the material for his job or a refund of $2500 of the $3500 he gave Williams as a down payment.

Williams’ wife Sara replied to the e-mail the next day, identified herself as Xtreme Concrete's owner and asked why.

Daugherty quickly replied and asked Sara to call him.

She replied in part, "my time is limited for phone calls."

41 Action News also tried to contact Sara Williams, but so far, there’s been no response.

"I'm a victim," Daugherty said. "Just going around scamming people, it aint right, people need to know what he's doing," said Doug Southern.

Southern and Mark Wright say they signed on as subcontractors for Williams and started Daugherty's job.

But then Williams said he couldn't buy concrete.

The two men say Williams promised to pay them for three jobs they set up.

But so far, they haven’t been paid.

"We made an agreement, just pay me.  I provided you a service, pay me," said Wright.

Who is Bob Williams? 

Court records show Bob Williams just began 5 years of probation for writing a bad check.

Records also show 18 criminal filings against him, mostly for writing bad checks.

Federal records also show Williams and his wife Sara, the owner of Extreme Concrete, had a 2011 bankruptcy settled last month.

The records show the Williams’ owed $740,000. Creditors were able to get $100.

It's all information Daugherty didn't know when he hired Xtreme Concrete.

"That would've made 100% different decision," Daugherty said.

"Guys like Bob, they got no business being in this business," Wright said.

The subcontractors Bob Williams hired also tell 41 Action News Williams was planning to go to Wichita to do work.

They're concerned he may use the same business practices there.
