Matt Pote is a brazen conman. Years of experience. Do not hire him or work for him. For the 3rd time Matthew has promised to repay the money he owes me!!
When you read all the 'reviews' there is no doubt this man has any intention of repaying anyone!! He certainly doesn't realise how scamming people can affect their lives!
Matthew you are a brazen conman who has no conscience! We all hope that one day, very soon, Karma will prevail.
Same Problem. Quoted and begged for payment up front, then blubbed and wanted to borrow money both of which we did.
Got another painter to do some of the work but defaulted on paying him too.
Incomplete work and we are out of pocket about $9000.
Trades on his father's good name and reputation ( Father is a terrific chap but now retired)
Matthew is a shocker. Don't have a bar of him!
Matt pote is a scammer and con man. I don’t know how this guy is still working as a painter, I’ve come across many of his clients over the years and they all say the same thing ‘he took our money and never came back’. The sad thing is, a lot of these people are elderly and vulnerable. Pote is absolutely shameless, he should be locked up, don’t know how he’s been able to get away with it for so many years. As friends of the family we lent Matt many thousands of dollars to help him out only to learn he conned us and we will probably never get our money back. Wish we'd seen this site beforehand. Do not work for him or use him. M&A POTE MASTER PAINTERS - the lies continue. "Promises" to repay. We are now taking legal action. Because of his ongoing criminal scamming it seems that the Magistrates Court, and the publicity as a result, will be the best way of dealing with the creature. He will end up paying our legal costs and probably end up behind bars. M & A POTE Master Painters - Cannot understand why Matt Pote hasn't been locked up - don't have anything to do with this conman/liar!! M & A Pote Master Painters Matthew Pote. We, like the others have been scammed.

Matt pote is a sleezy conman that makes inappropriate comments to young women and rips off anyone he can, with his sob story routine.
Reading all these comments it’s pretty obvious that he is getting worse.
I don’t understand why he hasn’t been locked up. Hopefully Karma will visit him soon!
Had known the family for many years so had him do a job for a relative. What a mistake. Only did 1/2 a job but took all the money as my relative fell into the trap of him having to pay his mortgage. Our kids had been friends for years and thought he was a straight up fellow but it could not be further from the truth. I am surprised he is not in jail for fraud. This guy is a thief and scammer don't use him. He ripped off my brother and I've heard of other instances of preying on the elderly and scamming them for cash.
A theif and criminal this bloke not a painter, he should be locked up.
M&A POTE MASTER PAINTERS. Apparently Mathews house is up for sale!!! M & A POTE MASTER PAINTERS Don't trust this thief liar conman! Don't know why he hasn't been locked up! Don't give up one day he will be caught out!! Comment has been removed M & A POTE MASTER PAINTERS. - Mathew POTE is a liar, he continues to promise to repay me but has no intention of doing so!! Where has all the $ gone that he has taken fron innocent people! He should be locked up!! M&A POTE MASTER PAINTERS
Don't have anything to do with Mathew, he will take your money and run!!! He should be locked up, a conman not a painter!!
Comment has been removed Comment has been removed M & A POTE MASTER PAINTERS - Once again Mathew told me he was going to repay the $ he owed me but nothing transpired apart from a phone call each day with an excuse. He rang on Wed 18 Sept at 6.20pm to say he would be at my house in one hours time - he never arrived! That was the 12th time his promised payment never eventuates!!
I believe Mathew thinks he has done no wrong! He asked me to remove 'posts' because it's affecting his business. Is that the 'BUSINESS' of scamming and conning people. He has no conscience.
M&A POTE MASTER PAINTERS - Mathew told me he was going to repay the money he owed me - he dragged it on for a week - he rang me on Wed 18th Sept at 6.20pm to say he would be at my house in an hour! Mind you this is the 12th time he has promised to repay me!! He has no intention of repaying anyone!!
