On May 2, 2008 Mitchell Poller, from Countrywide Draperies & Blinds of Bloomfield, NJ came to my house in NJ. He wrote up a work order for 1 wooden blind & 3 roman shades. I gave him a deposit check for $1,300.

On August 30, 2008 Mr. Poller installed my 1 wooden blind, which cost $209, therefore I am due a refund of $1,091 for the undelivered roman shades. While installing my blinds Mr. Poller said I should be receiving a refund check soon. As of today, May 16, 2009 I have NOT received my 3 roman shades or refund check.

Also from June 15, 2008 until this moment I have been given every excuse in the book to why I do not have the shades. When I started calling the store at least once a week I spoke to a Patricia Reilly & once in awhile I would speak to Mitchell directly. Ms. Reilly would always be nice & tell me Mitchell was at a job site & would get back and she did not know what the hold up was.

I have since dug deep into reports about this company & have found that Mr. Poller & Ms. Reilly have been running this "good cop, bad cop" scam for years. They have moved their company 4 times. They had a store in Montclair, East Rutherford, West Orange & now Bloomfield. They have also changed the name of the company many times .

On February 20, 2009 I filed a complaint with Bloomfield Township against Mitchell Poller and Patricia Reilly. On March 11, 2009 Mitchell appeared in court (without Patricia Reilly) and pleaded not guilty and the judge ordered mediation. On April 15, Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly and I appeared for mediation. The original complaint I had was they owed me a refund of $1,091.35 ($1,300 deposit minus the $206.65 wooden blinds received). When the mediator asked for our stories, I went first, then when it was Mr. Poller's time he said he agreed with everything I said ?? that he did not give me my three roman shades and yes I did give a deposit. So the mediator asked how we were going to resolve this issue. We negotiated that Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly were to give me $941.35 plus my fabric that would have been used to make the blinds. Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly were to have both the check and fabric to me by Thursday, May 7, 2009.

On May 7, 2009 I did not receive either the check or the fabric. The mediator informed me that if this negotiated deal was not met by Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly that the deal would be null and void and they would owe me my full $1,091.35. On Wednesday, May 13, 2009 I went back to court and asked the judge to re-open the case against Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly. We are all to show up to court again on June 2, 2009. I am not sure what is to happen, what the courts can actually do, but I am asking that both Mr. Poller and Ms. Reilly be put in jail as this is theft.
