Another bad contractor has been arrested, this time in Wyomissing. Michael J. Faust is in trouble for contractor fraud after not returning a check.
Usually, a contractor scam involves a contractor not doing the work, but this time, the client wanted him to do the job, paid him $1,800 down, and cancelled the job two days later. Faust agreed to this, but never returned the money.
A contractor bad job can sometimes be as simple as having an unclear refund policy. If you’re unsure if you want a job done, always look at the contractor’s policy, and make sure you want the work done. Faust is definitely being added to the bad contractor list for this one.
