    I was robbed by a local company for 2700. Whats my best move?

    We signed a contract with a local company to have a new well drilled for 5400. We put deposit of 2700 down. Health department came back with special requirements for well because we donít have the required 75 feet setback from septic tank. So well company raised the price to 11,000. I told them to pound sand and refund deposit. They told me no refunds which is stated in contract. Is this illegal? We didnít cancel 5400 well as contract states. We canceled 11,000 well. According to them they can raise price to whatever they want if you donít like it they steal deposit.

    Obv not a lawyer but that sounds absurd and pretty fucking illegal.

    Not sure where you live, but where im from i think that would fall under "Contract Theft" (but im not 100% positive) .

    Also, how in the hell does a professional well drilling company not know or even look up a basic rule like a setback requirement before giving a customer a price?

    I've been more or less in the construction industry for a long time and I would probably place this situation at least in the top 5 of the most ridiculous things ive ever heard.

    Agree.They knew in the beginning we needed a variance from the healt department and quoted 5400. They told me our variance is more work then most. Lies the health department told me all well variances have these requirements. Biggest difference is well casing has to be grouted bottom to top. The company refused to workout anything and owner blocked our phone #. I guess my only choice is small claims case. I can’t let this low life steal 2700

    Have you considered working for this place and tanking their pizza business from the inside while you live in the parking lot

    Your best move is probably to reach out to your other FL forum posters and invest in a certain coin to get your money back.

    What’s the maximum damage amount small claims court in your state allows?

    I mean come on. They probably already invested that $2,700 in permits, staff, time etc.. It's not like they are getting off free either. I had some dental work done the other day, ran $1000 more than quoted, sometimes you just pay and move on, I didn't freak out and threaten to sue the dentist. It's not like the guy is scamming you, he got clipped by local government, this happens all the time. If you want the work done for the job pay the money, but LOL at suing over $2,700. You can't be serious.

    Permit was only 150. You would let someone Fuck you out of 2700 and do nothing? Believe me last thing I want to do is sue some dumb redneck. Personally I would rather pay someone to punish him for robbing me.

    Druff what’s your take here. Is it illegal for them to keep deposit when price changes from 5400 to 11k?

      Baron Von Strucker: since you put it this way. a new price would require a new contract so a refund would be in order and new higher deposit would be required

    Can you post the exact language of that portion of the contract they're referring to?

    Sounds like a scam to me. If they can't do the job for $5400, it sounds like the contract is invalid. Otherwise they could quote you $1,000,000 and just keep your $2700. This might actually have been intentional, knowing you would get rejected due to special requirements, and then they could gouge you for a much higher price, and figure you'd feel pot committed due to the 2700.

    Have you googled reviews for this company?
