These 2 clowns scammed my 80 year old gma out of 4k, they were supposed to meet my Father and I today but no showed and the phone number is now disconnected.
They're located in Richmond, Chesterfield, Chester, Ashland, VA. Any of those.
Pete and Joe Gorman are their names, they're running some sort of handyman company in the area.
Any type of info you can pull on these guys is greatly appreciated. You can PM me, post it here, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org

I'll take a look. If you have anything else, pm me. If there any kind of company name, address, phone #? Send me the disconnected #.
Need a lawyer?
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
You are positive those are their real names though? If they're not above scamming grannies, I don't think they're above identity theft either.
Gorman asphalt and paving is one of the company names.
The disconnected # is 804-878-8129
Take this to the rivals mainboard and put up some pics of hot girls. Those guys sit around and wait to do crap like this.
James Gorman is the other name.
You might want to put this on Pack Pride board...within 10 minutes, you will probably know what they had for lunch today!
Good luck...that's some real BS to have to deal with.
Interesting Reviews... Sounds like Pat is a crook
Consumer complaints and reviews about Gorman Paving in Gainesville, Virginia. Worst Experience with Contractor Ever. Contractors
12216 Sour Gum Court
This at least provides for good entertainment.
Yes it helps slow work days go by.
Hmmm....I would move my search further south to South Carolina. Sounds like the gypsy travelers out of Murphys Village. Dealt with those guys a bit while living in Asheville, NC. They would pull all kinds of scams of that sort. Handyman and driveway refinishing. They would reserve rooms all summer and then vanish about the time people started to complain. Many of them would get arrested throughout the year. Gorman was one of the surnames along with Sherlock, and Murphy.
Preface: Looks like others have already found the info below, but these some bad people
Pat is a deadbeat, and could very well one you are looking for. He has scammed and cheated people under several different companies, all associated with paving and asphalt. His father, John Gorman, was arrested for scamming people in paving and home repair scams, and may be serving time now. The Gorman's are part of the traveller's clans from whitesettlement, TX. Members of the family have a long history of arrests including child abuse, and one member attacking a WWII vet with a crowbar.

They are the utmost in professional scam artist, and if you confront them, you better be armed because these are not people to take lightly. Whether this was pat that scammed your grandma or not, virtually no chance they are not from the same clan. Report it to the police, who will probably be familiar with the Gormans.
If you want more information send an e-mail to this address and explain what happened and ask if this person has any additional information that might help you. email@example.com. I'm not positive the address is still good.
Sorry, that's all I could dig up.

Sad part is, no one ever gets money back from these people.

Yep everything I have seen says the same thing... Real pieces of Sh!t
The spend it all on those weddings.
I don't know if this is the same kind of scam, but it is very common in and around Hilton Head Island (lots of retirees and elderly) for a "contractor" to come into a neighborhood and go door-to-door saying they just finished a big paving job and they have a bunch of excess asphalt and are willing to repave your driveway at a rock bottom price. They then proceed to get the homeowner to sign a convoluted contract that essentially states that the customer agrees to pay in full regardless of work completed. The contractor then dumps some asphalt at the end of the driveway and takes off never to come back. The contractor still sends the invoice for the payment in full and legally, he is entitled to it. If the customer refuses to pay, they get taken to court or sent to bill collection and there is nothing really that the police can do about it. The police just try to spread the word through newspaper articles, etc, to try to get the word out there and keep the homeowners from falling into the trap.
That's why it's best to just shoot them before they screw someone else over.

Excellent work Smitty. I love being a Hokie.
They seem like good people outside of a few minor character flaws.
Link to the SC Travelers. There is a Pete Gorman listed as an owner.
Smitty is going to be the boards' new dox man
That was minor league. On another board a few months ago, some guy posted a long thread about his trip to Iran, pictures and all. The long post was about how wrong we are about their culture, and about even their government paying for dinner at a nice restaurant to show what great people the Iranians were. It was over the top weird.
I tracked down the guys pictures to the photo albumn of a woman in the netherlands. I busted the guy on it, and he got fighting mad and said that was his girlfriend and he was sorry they posted the pictures in her album. Hell, I sent the woman a private message on facebook, and said, I know this sounds weird, but I have a question. Believe or not, she actually responded and thought it was funny. She also said she was a lesbian, so no on the boyfriend thing. Destroyed the guy again. Then some other poster is giving me hell and defending the guy. One of the mods sends me a message on facebook, and says, hey smitty, that's the same guy under a different ID. That was hilarious.
Proving Butch Ovens wasn't really dead was a chore too.
