News Tech: An elderly crippled lady and her neighbour hoped that the contractor who accepted and spent their money would “do the right thing.”
It was not.
Neighbors in Brownstown who hired him to work on their shared driveway and walkway were hoping that an ultimatum from police to pay them by Friday or face prosecution would be enough of an incentive.
The deadline of August 19 passed, and the individual informed police he still needed more time.
She stated that she is unable to repay the money, pay another contractor, and obtain the window.
“I’m quite unhappy,” said the older woman, who is frightened that if others realise she is crippled and blind, they may target her for fraud. “I feel so tricked and exploited.” That’s a lot of money in my opinion.” She spent most of her professional life as a trauma and emergency nurse caring for others, and she is now outraged that this contractor did not look out for her.
“I’d want to ask him what you would do if this happened to your mother or grandma,” she continued. “What would you do if this happened to you?” “I’m simply completely overwhelmed.” Detective Lt. Andrew Starzec sent the case’s evidence to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday, precisely as he promised if the money wasn’t returned.
“I was quite explicit,” said Starzec. “When I spoke with him on Friday, he had a laundry list of reasons.” I made an attempt. I’m quite disappointed. He came out and admitted he spent the money on non-work-related items, but he didn’t explain what. He has justifications, but they need their money.” Starzec stated that he provided the contractor with a reasonable, albeit rigorous, timeline.
She is curious as to how he planned to do any of the job with all of their money. She doesn’t think he had no intention of doing anything.
The other woman in this case is enraged, claiming that the contractor waited just 20 minutes to cash their cheques once they were in his possession. He stated that no one else had filed a police report against the contractor, but he admitted that there may have been additional incidences that were not recorded.
