Excelsior, MN 55331
JJ Power and John Jaffray seems to have shut down his business as none of his phones get answered. Has anyone seen or heard from him? I would like to meet him in person preferably. A short true story:
A friend of ours came to us hoping we could help him as John Jaffray of JJPower had collected 75% up front (never do that customers), from a customer and had not called anyone or started anything to do with the project, so the client was very angry and kept asking him where is my money. We were contacted somewhere in between 3 and 4 months of John Jaffrey holding Tom’s money. It was perfect building weather so, to help get the project in fast. At the time, we were not aware of this kind of conduct so we wrote a quick contract demanding roughly 70% up front and the remainder when the project was commissioned. We notified John Jaffrey in August that the project for Micro Machine in Rockford MN was commissioned and was expecting a check. Several calls over the next 4 to 6 weeks and he kept saying next week. Finally sent another invoice on top of another-past due, past due, etc… John Jaffrey and JJ Power stopped answering our calls except occasionally when he couldn’t remember who was calling. Then every time would say we would absolutely get paid next week. Last time….he stated that he would put us on the top of the list. There’s a list?
I guess that has a great deal to do with writing this. JJ Power is a local solar “developer?”. So far, he just takes money from honest customers and sometimes delivers something and often just keeps it like he has with us.
Take a look at JJ Powers website: https://www.jjrpower.com/ Pretty well done. Masks a different owner and organization for certain. Wonder if web designer got paid?
If JJ Power comes knocking on your door…do nothing without full payment up front and make sure you see the contract to double check it was full payment.
7 years in this business and so far only one man with no morals like this. Sad thing….but it will come around. Maybe starting right now? Feel free to forward link to post as you see fit.
Oh, and his site makes it look like he is involved in multi-million dollar projects out East. Maybe he needs our money to pay for living expenses? A newer car? Couple high end show dogs?
