Sydney tradie plumbing boss accused of ripping off customers

"Antony Murillo" (2020-08-22) -

A young high-flying tradie boss who hoons around in flashy cars and shows off a lavish lifestyle on social media has been accused of ripping off customers and sabotaging plumbing work.

Former employees have made extraordinary claims about the alleged profit-boosting tactics of Sydney-based FastWay Plumbing owner Jason Aboukalam, 26.

Disgruntled customers have also come forward, alleging they were overcharged hundreds of dollars for jobs ranging from fixing a leaking toilet and shower to unblocking toilet sewers. 

Mr Aboukalam has denied the allegations publicly aired about him in recent days, telling Daily Mail Australia the claims were 'false and definitely not true.'

One plumber who briefly worked for Mr Aboukalam alleged his boss told him to sabotage a pipe with a hammer so the customer could be billed.

'When I found the pipe I noticed there was nothing wrong with it. I took photos of it and I rang Jason and goes, 'oh well the lady's agreed to a $15,000 quote so just smash it with your hammer and fix it,' Dylan Cook told last week.

'He charged her $15,000 dollars for something that wasn't even broken, like I even had to break it with a hammer.'Another ex-employee George alleged: 'He would make it seem like he's charging an appropriate price, in reality it was about triple the normal price of the actual job.' RELATED ARTICLES
