ORANGE COUNTY CONSUMER FRAUD UNIT investigation of Rokella Jeffrey dba Luvly Interiors LLC.
Rokella Jeffrey dba Luvly Interiors LLC with continued false statements and questionable practices have led the Orange County Consumer Fraud Unit to investigate more serious charges.
A 3rd degree FELONY investigation has arisen from Rokella Jeffrey dba Luvly Interiors LLC and her questionable business practices and continued activities.
While ALREADY UNDER INVESTIGATION for possible misdemeanor violation, Rokella Jeffrey turned the investigation toward a 3rd degree FELONY by filing a potentially fraudulent lien.
The initial investigation stemmed from alleged breach of contract, inflated- bogus invoicing, billing for unperformed services (doorbells, smoke detectors, etc.), unsubstantiated labor costs and UNDELIVERED GOODS (those darned cabinets) as well as billing for uncompleted work and skilled work (electrical rewiring) being performed by unlicensed and unsupervised laborers.
The 2014 Florida Statutes: Title XL REAL AND PERSONAL PROPERTY Chapter 713 LIENS, GENERALLY 713.31 Remedies in case of fraud or collusion. (1) When the owner or any lienor shall, by fraud or collusion, deprive or attempt to deprive any lienor of benefits or rights to which such lienor is entitled under this part by establishing or manipulating the contract price or by giving false affidavits, releases, invoices, worthless checks, statements, or written instruments permitted or required under this part relating to the… (2)(a) Any lien asserted under this part in which the lienor has willfully exaggerated the amount for which such lien is claimed or in which the lienor has willfully included a claim for work not performed upon or materials not furnished for the property upon which he or she seeks to impress such lien or in which the lienor has compiled his or her claim with such willful and gross negligence as to amount to a willful exaggeration shall be deemed a fraudulent lien.
(b) It is a complete defense to any action to enforce a lien under this part, or against any lien in any action in which the validity of the lien is an issue, that the lien is a fraudulent lien; and the court so finding is empowered to and shall declare the lien unenforceable, and the lienor thereupon forfeits his or her right to any lien on the property upon which he or she sought to impress such fraudulent lien. (3) ANY PERSON WHO WILLFULLY FILES A FRAUDULENT LIEN, as defined in this section, COMMITS A FELONY OF THE THIRD DEGREE, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s.
775.083, or s. 775.084

RECEIPTS , CABINETS AND GOODS WANTED!!
These people either grossly UNDERBID a project they were not capable of or I have been SCAM*ED. My attorney is working this out now if they have the nerve to return his call.
Miss Rokella Jeffrey, (owner) contracted with and her husband Mike Davies advised me on a remodel of my home and at every request for any accountability (receipts), there was an all out battle.
They even brought the KIDS along to assist in the set-up!!
Rokella Jeffrey, Mike Davies and I agreed to a budget of $25000 with some “wiggle” room either way. 4-6 weeks to complete or less.
Rokella said she would use this job to “SHOWCASE” her work and as a result would “NOT CHARGE MARK UPS”
MISS JEFFREY wiggled me out of $35000 with a request for $15000 more!
Our contract clearly stated there were to be receipts provided at various stages of work, to date there has been ONLY 1, for some 2nd hand appliances, this receipt APPEARS DOCTORED AND IN ROKELLA JEFFREY’S HANDWRITTING !!! This after $35,000 in expenditures!
The project ended after Jeffrey with Charles Bradford’s (Kitchen Magic, Bradford Interiors) cooperation, absconded my kitchen cabinets I had paid for, (who knows what else) and demanded a fee for their return.
They had NO regard for performance clauses, always for funding.
No matter what the delay, MICHAEL “Mike” DAVIES would ALWAYS blame “lack of funds”, even though the project was fully or “over funded” for the given period.
During this ordeal I have ALWAYS operated within the constructs of our written contract and now they have taken my goods because they can't provide documentation of where the money went!!!
They even kept their relatives working until funds were exhausted while leaving COMPLETED subcontractor work unpaid.
I think I answered my original question.
"Be on the lookout"!
