Weatherly, Inc., Glen Carwile, Re-Bath LLC

Ripoff Report Verified Safe
On the 'ReBath.com' web site, I typed my zipcode to find the installation contractor in my area. ReBath is a franchise business located in Arizona that supplies acrylic tub and wall liners. Weatherly Inc. had the franchise to sell and install ReBath for my area.
I signed a contract 5/15/08 for installation of Re-Bath, and wrote a check for $1,750 payable to 'Re-bath'. On 7/7/09, I called Glen Carwile (of Weatherly) to ask how the order was coming along. He stated that they had not yet ordered the parts because they were having trouble getting the money together. I immediately called Re-Bath and spoke with Heidi (800)426-4573 x112. Re-bath had no record of me. I faxed my contract to Re-Bath, and was told that Weatherly ceased being an authorized installer as of 6/10/08. I called Glen and demanded my money back. He said 'OK.'
The next day, I got a voice mail from 'Kevin of Weatherly' (540)974-1223. I called him back late afternoon. He said 'Glen tells me you're having concerns about the contract.' I stated that Glen said that parts had not yet been ordered. Kevin replied 'Glen doesn't know.' Then I brought up the termination of Weatherly's franchise agreement on 6/10/08. He said Weatherly cut off Re-Bath (not Re-Bath cut off Weatherly), and I replied that I didn't see what difference it makes. The situation is the same. Since Weatherly is no longer a Re-Bath franchise, Weatherly cannot install Re-Bath.
Kevin of Weatherly stated that he could complete his contracts. I replied by stating: oh sure, and how long does it take to complete your contracts - 5 years,... 10 years? Kevin said, well, if you're going to get sarcastic, I'll just shut up. I said 'I want my money back.' After a few silent seconds, I hung up.

Happy Ending - got money back, thanks to my credit union
I challenged my check, and was able to get the full amount, $1,750, back. Within 60 days, you may challenge the deposit of your check. My check was made payable to 'Re-Bath', but deposited into a non-Re-Bath account. Re-Bath had no knowledge of me. The check was endorsed 'FOR DEPOSIT' with no signature. This is called forgery. I can't actually say whose account cashed it because there were just a bunch of numbers on the back of it, but I count myself lucky that 60 days later there was still $1,750 in the account that the Feds could put a hold on, and then move the money back into my account. The whole process took less than 4 weeks.
I'd still like to see these 2 crooks in jail - the one who executed the contract, and the one who called for the sole purpose of being argumentative to get me to give up. (It didn't work with me. Actually, I'm thinking of calling him back in a year and demanding my Re-Bath. It's been so long, why haven't the parts been ordered. But I probably won't. I'm just happy to have the cash back.)

Be sure to have all of the facts before you go defamating peoples character on the internet!!!
Before you go posting peoples names on the internet and calling them crooks I think that you should consider making sure that you have all of your facts straight. First of all Glen Carwile was my father, and I do not appreciate you linking his name with Rebath by Weatherly, nor do I appreciate you calling him a scammer and crook. He was an employee there and that was all, which means that he would not have been able to cash your check or deposit your check that was made out to 'Rebath'. I know for a fact that my father would not have come and written you up a contract and taken your money had he been aware that 'Rebath' was in financial jeopardy. I understand your anger at not having the work completed that you paid for but you should have filed that complaint against 'Rebath'. Not the employee of 'Rebath'! Now if you can show me solid evidence that my father deposited this check into his account then that would be one thing, but from your follow up it doesn't even sound like you know that information. Oh yeah, and another thing, unfortunately you won't have to worry about your wish of seeing my father, 'the crook' I think you called him, iend up in jail because he died last year. Imagine that, I'm sure it was really easy for the company to put all of this off on my father, especially considering they knew he couldn't defend himself since he was dead!
