North Carolina’s Attorney General says a temporary restraining order has been granted agains a Wake County contractor involved in a lawsuit about alleged deceptive trade practices.
The temporary restraining order prohibits George Edward Hall, Patricia Roberts, Carolina Structures, Inc., Titan Concrete, Inc., Valley Sheds Plus, LLC, Carolina Buildings, LLC, Titan Outdoor Impressions, Inc., Kahuna Concrete, and Affordable Contractors from soliciting and engaging in contracting work or accepting payment for work from consumers pending a preliminary injunction hearing.
“I’m grateful that these contractors won’t be able to take advantage of anyone else in North Carolina as this case continues,” Attorney General Josh Stein said in a statement. “If you agree to do a job for someone and take their money, you have to follow through. My office will hold you accountable if you betray customers.”
The suit filed by Stein alleges that Hall, an unlicensed contractor, and Roberts, who assists his daily business operations, operate a contracting business under multiple names. Hall enters into an agreement with people, requiring them to pay significant advances before work begins, but fails to do the work or refund the advance.
