Who do you believe--Kelly G Rogers or Avie DeSwardt?

I'm giving you, our readers, a homework assignment today. Read these two comments and simply tell us who you believe?

On August 02, 2009, Kelly Rogers wrote the following on the Ripoff Report about A.D. Design; 

DO not have your cabinets done by Avie De Swardt or A. D. Designs. He is a swindler and a fraud. He will take your deposit and not deliver your cabinets. If he does deliver any cabinets they will be substandard, different than what you ordered, and he will not care.

He will make promises to you to make you believe that his work is the best in the industry. Then he will steal your money, refuse to take your calls, agree to meet with you and fail to show up, and never meet his promised dates for delivery and installation. 

Then he will try to intimidate you with his size and threaten you into accepting his sorry excuse for cabinets, and then he will file a lien against you if you don't pay him for what he failed to deliver.

Former Customer Dallas, Texas U.S.A.
Mr. Avie De Swardt from A.D Designs responds......

I have only filed a lien on one persons property in my 22 years in business. That was against Mr. Kelly Rogers. I filed the lien for one reason only and that is because he didn't pay me. 

My builder on the project was Mr. Mike Brown had advised me to file a lien as he (Home owner Kelly Rogers) was not paying him either or his bills. Mr. Mike Brown of MJB Homes can be contacted at 214-236-2617 to confirm this information. 

Mr. Kelly Rogers was sued by my lawyers at Higgier & Allen in Dallas and we settled. The outstanding money owed to my company by Rogers was delivered to my lawyers office before the case went to court.

I, Avie De Swardt, settled for about 40 cents on the dollar so I was the only one who lost money here. I believe my builder/customer Mr. Brown lost in excess of $100,000 that was owed to him by Mr. Rogers. I also did not get a final payment of approximately $1500 from Rogers and did not bother to pursue it and just moved on. 

The only truth about his report is that I did run into him afterwards at a Costco and I was rude to him in front of his wife, however, I did not threaten him in any way.  I did insult him and that's probably why he filed this nonsense to try and hurt me or my company. I can send you a customer list of a few hundred if needed so your office can make this false report disappear. 

Many Thanks,

I bet the cabinets in jail suck even more.

Kelly Rogers is pond scum...It's sickening that he would go on the rip off report and try and ruin this mans business. My son went to LCA and was friends Kelly and Carries son. The first time I met the Rogers I was given the outlandish details of the multi million dollar remodel. They spoke as if a mini Hurricane Harbour was going to built in the backyard. Carrie all but stuck her jewelry in my face. It was laughable. I was disinstrested and unimpressed. I found them both to be pompous asses. When I found out these arrogant buffoons were actually crooks sadly I was not shocked. I feel badly for the victims of their many cons. I hope they both pay dearly for living large off unsuspecting victims.

Being one of their "victims"; I pray everyday that God's Will be done. They have hid behind HIS name for too long. Please God protect us as we move forward, and protect other families from this couple forever. Praying that May 2014 FINALLY bring us justice, and peace.

Yes, but the cabinets in prison (jail is a relatively nice place) are at exactly the right level for his cellmate to make him squeal like a pig!

Actually, it appears to be an outstanding advertisement for his business. He offered for anyone who happened to be looking plenty of information that proves it was Rogers, not him, who was at fault.

this is awesome. And by awesome I mean exposing even more how Kelly and Carrie were thieves in every part of their life- professional, personal, etc. They hurt vendors, customers, friends, and family (if I am correct on that last one which I feel certain I am.)

Kelly Rogers and his wife might be scum too, BUT Awie de Swardt, or whatever pseudo name he uses, is a thief and just as much scum as the Rogers family. He steals and doesn't matter from who. He ran from the law in South Africa, but it will catch up with him in the US. His time will come. The only place he belongs is in jail. What a scum bag.
