He grifted granny

From Eyewitness News:

Some homeowners were looking to renovate their homes and found what they thought was the perfect contractor to get the job done.

Now they claim that contractor swindled them out of tens of thousands of dollars without finishing the work.

And this isn't the first time he's accused of running the scam.

"How much?" Eyewitness News Investigative Reporter Jim Hoffer asked.

"$38,000," said Carmen Grant, a Laurelton, Queens resident.

That's how much money Carmen Grant gave to a contractor to renovate her kitchen.

"Most contractors complete their job," Hoffer said.

"No, he did not complete his job. He left with my money and never came back," Grant said.

No one should trust any contractor, license or not, working on your home. You have to be vigilant at all times.

And the DCA confiscating vehicles? Laughable. That doesn't even begin to pay back the victims. Take him to court, ladies. You can't count on TV and the DCA to get your money back.

Alvin Kip? sounds like Jamaican or Caribbean. Alvin wouldn't be able to get away with this crap there!
wow, I really like those sunglasses.
after he pays restitution to the women he scammed, and yes, there are more out there, deport him back home.
