    Im going to make this short. This guy is a con artist. I hired him to do an electrical job for me. The man said that he was skilled in electrical work. He did bring a licensed electrician with him. During the job Bill Fox proceded to start pulling wires from my breaker panel. The electrician told him not to. Bill proceeded to swear at his electrician and pulled wires anyway. This upset me. Later on the job the so called contractor (Bill) gave the electrician some power tools to use. The batteries to the tools were not even charged so, the electrician couldnt do his job. I then asked Bill Fox if he had his contractors license. His reply was no. I do have my business license. I was furious at this time and told him that he wasnt to touch another thing unless the electrician told him to. I payed the electrician for his work and told the electrician that he could pay Bill the Contractor for his help. The electrician did do a good job and I would recommend him to other clients but, this Bill Fox... Stay away from him. He even had the nerve to call my phone and threaten to harm me if I posted a bad review here. I do have the threat on my voice mail and it has been saved. Bill you are an idiot.

    Bill F. from Nashville Handyman replied to this review on June 9, 2014:

    This individual, James is the con-artist, if there is one. He called me and asked about having wire pulled from his house to his garage, to replace existing wire. This job in no way requires a contractor license to perform, and my electrician is licensed. He asked about an estimate and since the job was approximately a thirty mile drive from our location he was told there would be a trip charge which he did not want to pay. He continued to try to convince me that the job would be easy and should only take about three hours, which he said he could pay for.

    I told him that based on the information he was giving me it sounded as though the job should only take about three hours IF everything went smoothly.

    When we arrived we disconnected all the wiring leading to the garage and began attempting the replacement at which time we found the original old wires had been installed incorrectly underground and could not be replaced without digging them up. We advised the customer that it was impossible to do the project in the time of 3 hours. At this point we already had nearly two hours involved in trying to correct a mess that the customer admitted had been done by someone who was not qualified.

    We then offered him an alternative of running an outlet from his breaker panel to the outside wall of his house so that he could run an extension cord to his garage for additional power, which he agreed to. The customer then took my electrician to procure parts to complete the alternative installation.

    When he returned he had made up his mind that in order to get out of paying for the additional time involved in his project he would just fire me and try to hire my electrician to complete the job, that way he would not have to pay for the original time involved in finding his project impossible to do based on the false information he gave originally.

    Since I had two employees on the job and would end up having to pay them out of my pocket if I refused to let them work after his ridiculous behavior I said nothing and we continued the job to it's completion. The customer then, of course paid for three hours work although there were over five hours involved on the job. I was on the job every minute and completed it and, of course the customer found a way to get out of paying about half of the money he should have. If there is a con-artist here, this individual is a prime example.

    As far as threats the only thing my firm is going to do is file legal action if this clown continues his nonsense. If you want to get paid for the work you do, stay away from James Strength in Murfreesboro, TN. Fair notice is given.
