From Eyewitness News:
Some homeowners were looking to renovate their homes and found what they thought was the perfect contractor to get the job done.
Now they claim that contractor swindled them out of tens of thousands of dollars without finishing the work.
And this isn't the first time he's accused of running the scam.
"How much?" Eyewitness News Investigative Reporter Jim Hoffer asked.
"$38,000," said Carmen Grant, a Laurelton, Queens resident.
That's how much money Carmen Grant gave to a contractor to renovate her kitchen.
"Most contractors complete their job," Hoffer said.
"No, he did not complete his job. He left with my money and never came back," Grant said.
