Hein Strauss from Crown Kitchens and Cupboards took my deposit and only did a small portion of the work. I was awarded damages in the Small Claims Court in Somerset West For R12,210 plus costs and interest. He started off in Port Elizabeth as Heinz Kitchens in 1996. Then in Strand as Majestic Kitchens, then as Crown Kitchens and then went back to Port Elizabeth and opened Baywest Kitchens and cupboards. He never puts a physical address on his quotes or his website. He targets pensioners. When I check up on him it shows he owns nothing. I have his banking details and his I.D. Number. To date he has not made any attempt to pay me back like he promised before I went to the Small Claims Court. I have been in contact and have proof of other clients that were also victims of Hein.
