Consumer protection officials investigate closed contractor
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The attorney general’s consumer protection division is investigating the sudden closure of a building and remodeling contractor in Fargo.
KVRR-TV says the owner of Studs to Rugs closed the business without warning, leaving an unknown number of customers in limbo. Assistant Attorney General Parrell Grossman says a state law approved two years ago makes contractor fraud a crime.
Grossman says the owner has not responded to customers’ calls and attempts by his office for information.
