This family had been searching for a honest contractor for years. It was ripped off by close relatives and locals contractors. Retirement was fast approaching so construction of their retirement home needs to begin sooner rather than later. The author did her homework. She requested assistance in completing a background check on Ben, the new contractor. The report was positive. However, the contractor knew the game. He hung around three weeks before he was hired, assisting in the construction of a building which was already in progress. The author was impressed. Ben was telling the other workers how to do things right. Once Ben was hired, he gave daily updates. He even encouraged the author to take pictures daily. By October, he was ahead of schedule and was paid in full, even though the work was not completed. After that payment, other jobs were authorized and paid for, based on Ben's report. Once Ben was fully paid, he submitted trumped up bills and received payments. By the time the author became the wiser and hired a supervisor for Ben and notified Ben that any bill over $100 must be approved, Ben quit working. He had received money which was twice the initial estimate and now the family has no leverage. Without any governmental agencies to regulate the construction industry in Belize, the only recourse is the court. How long will that take?
