    Be very wary.

    AMC build

    Fine design sussex

    This character has re-appeared as Adrian and uses the name Mark King also, aswell as any other name he can hide behind on his e-mails.

    Currently living Crawley Down.

    Working Horley, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex anywhere he can get work.

    A google search of 'Greg Hames', Nuglas or Lulworth Conservatories will tell you all you need to know about this man. He has history.

    Names used:
    Adrian McElwee
    Greg Hames
    Mark King

    Scamming people and leaving constructions half finished, and to a very poor standard.
    I am taking reports weekly of customers he has abandoned.

    Makes false claims that his wife has a brain tumour or a relative has died to customers and tradesmen to perform his vanishing act.

    People also complaining of damp with jobs he has completed, and when he is asked to put these issues right the customer is threatened with visits from undesireables. Despite promising warranties no after service is provided.

    Stay clear of AMCBUILD , Sheerlight Design or Fine Design Sussex or Nuglas. They are all alias' that he hides behind but never registers as limited companies.

    Please note this does not refer to AMC Build Ltd a company based in Eynsham, Oxfordshire, and actually registered with companies house, unlike Hames who is acting as Adrian McElwee of AMC BUILD Horley.

    Thanks for the latest information Andrew on Greg Hames latest CON servatory building company.

    As someone else has alluded too, the photos do look very fake and he's also offering a 20 year guarantee also Gas Safe accreditations and NIC/EIC approval, now surely that is a criminal offence.

    Trading Standards

    I'm horrified to think he is still continuing with this. If anyone has been a victim (as I have last year) please report him to West Sussex trading standards, hopefully one day he will be prosecuted!

    I Sent all my info to Trading Standard and I'd urge all those people that have been conned by this vile person to do the same. I would imagine he'll soon be touting for business as the weather improves, so please people keep an eye open for his bogus web sites.

    West Sussex trading standards are investigating Greg Hames (aka Mark King, Adrian etc) now and are looking for more witness statements. I'm horrified to think he is still continuing with this. If anyone has been a victim (as I have last year) please call them (0330 2222917). Ask for Kyle Cherry who is collecting the statements.

    The number is genuine, but I find it odd that it is being posted publicly!!
