AG’s order bars three contractors from stateBISMARCK – Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem issued cease and desist orders against three unlicensed contractors Friday for violations of state consumer fraud laws.
Banned from conducting business in the state are Alex Sweeney and Lou Cueto, doing business as Aqua Dry Restoration; Denis J. Lee, doing business as Ashley Home Exteriors; and Todd A. Copenhaver, doing business as KRC Steel Works LLC and KRC Steel Erectors.
According to Stenehjem in a news release, the Consumer Protection Division initiated an investigation against the contractors after receiving complaints from consumers that work they had paid for in advance had not been completed. The investigation showed that none of the individuals has a contractor’s license, required by state law.
