Residents be ware of a business man named Vince Smith who goes by the company name A-1 Windows and Remodeling, A-1 Windows and Door, Chicago Handyman, A-1 Glass man, or Vince’s Window Service. He is currently living around the 815 block of Lake Street and does business in Oak Park, Forest Park, and surrounding areas in Chicago.
He rides around in a white van that says Illinois Window Service and Repair that belongs to another company. This man is a complete CONMAN. He takes your money and doesn’t show up to do the work. He pretends to order materials and never shows with the product after he takes your money and cashes the check. Never comes prepared to do the job and always asking for more and more money, and always under the guise of needing more and more materials.
He is NOT LICENSED OR BONDED, Nor does he stand by his work. He is very charming and charismatic, but the truth is he is a liar who swindles you out of your money. Basically an out and out thief. He promises to be at your home then calls with alibis and excuses as to why he isn’t there once he has deposited or cashed your money. He is currently up om a Class 3 Felony for theft and under investigation for Check Fraud. with the Cook County Sheriffs Police ………
