Complaint / review text:
I, Lila Ainsworth am publishing this criticism to table Michael Prisco is (operator of Saratoga Pianos and Magdalena's Home of Pianos in Fort Ed, N. Y.) slanderous remarks concerning my cello training published on

Mr. Prisco doesn't signal his criticism or determine his connection with me within the publishing that will be really common of his business transactions. I had been a person of his violin rebuilding company which promotes on the web but is found in the city of Fort Ed in upstate Ny

Mr. Prisco doesn't have understanding of my cello training and it is just seeking vengeance. He lives and operates in upstate Ny. He's conscious I train cello, since I have advised him that I needed to buy a violin to be used in my own audio business. Though he doesn't understand my cello individuals, they're all conscious of my issues with him and also the purchase of the violin.

Michael Prisco is respected to misrepresent his function and never respect agreements with clients. I had been unaware of his deceptive business methods before making a $10,000 deposit with him to repair a Steinway piano. I thought we would possess the work completed by him because of the proven fact that he cited a reduced cost compared to rebuilders in the region of NY Town. Nevertheless, he didn't do the job and repair all areas of the violin as was suggested within the work-order. He finished the job several weeks later than promised and declined to I would like to examine the job happening as he'd previously guaranteed. I had been compelled to employ an attorney and consult the neighborhood authorities to be able to have the violin, since I have anticipated losing the deposit as he was threatening bankruptcy. Nevertheless, to my understanding he's still running a business at the moment.

I've discovered my training and undoubtedly want I'd used trustworthy and exceptional nearby piano rebuilders in my own region.

Our individuals and acquaintances are well-aware of my "violin tale" as this headache as been happening since last August of 2008. Just a few days after departing the $10,000 deposit with Michael Prisco of Saratoga and Magdalena's Home of Pianos, I became conscious he had a criminal history which it had been probable that I'd not get the violin rebuilt as requested. After being educated of the, I did so discover several grievances about him on / link eliminated / and damaging info in the Better Business Office.

Understanding this, I required a reimbursement, three times after making the deposit. Sadly, Mr. Prisco declined, declaring he had previously bought components for that repair. He also accepted his legal past but stated he was today Religious and had improved his methods. He assured he'd perform a congrats about the violin and that I wished for the very best. Sadly, the very best didn't happen. I've been with no violin just about all year in my own training business and also have invested countless hours and cash talking to attorneys and producing excursions to Fort Ed, Ny. After eventually getting the violin, I came across it had been not rebuilt correctly (an exaggeration). Upon the guidance of three much respectable rebuilders within the NY city-area; I recognized the violin would need to be rebuilt again to be able to assist my objective. It'd not maintain message and also the new soundboard damaged inside a month. Since I have couldn't manage another repair, my only choice was to market the violin for significantly less than I taken care of it and make an effort to purchase a cheaper violin for my business.

Mr. Prisco did provide in the future and repair the piano in my own house after I advised him of the issues using the violin. Nevertheless, I understood that it required an entire repair and undoubtedly couldn't risk permitting him to consider the violin. There could be no cause to think he'd behave differently or do greater function the 2nd period. I'd arrived at the final outcome that it had been time for you to reduce all connections with this particular guy and also to attempt to obtain a working violin for my business elsewhere.

Their threats to try to damage my status like a cello instructor are common of his deceptive business transactions. Clearly, he's destroyed their own status through their own actions and ensuing client issues published about these steps. I've approached the neighborhood Dobbs Ferry authorities concerning Michael Prisco when I have now been informed he's a criminal history and it has experienced prison for transactions within the building company a long time ago.
