Attorney general files suit against private contractor from Ross
The state Attorney General's Office has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against a private contractor from Ross who is accused of failing to start work after accepting payment from home improvement contracts.
William M. Lacek is accused of leaving projects incomplete, performing work in an unprofessional or shoddy manner, not notifying consumers of their right to cancel contracts and operating an unregistered home improvement business, Attorney General Tom Corbett said Thursday.
Corbett said his office has received 47 complaints about Lacek, who operated under several business names including "Bill-Tom-Joe — Senior Carpenters," "Mike-Bill-Tom as Senior Carpenters," and "Mike-Bill-Joe as Senior Carpenters."
Any consumer who has a complaint should call the Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-441-2555 or file online by using the attorney general's Web site at www.attorneygeneral.gov and clicking on the complaints button.
