AG: Roofer took insurance checks, never finished work

CINCINNATI (AP) — The state attorney general is suing a Cincinnati roofing company over more than a dozen complaints that the company took insurance checks but the work was either never finished or was done improperly.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says American Property Claims Specialists LLC and its owner, David Nelson, violated the state’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Home Solicitation Sales Act.

DeWine says the company told consumers their roofs were damaged and that their insurance would cover the repairs. He says homeowners signed over insurance checks to the company, which never completed the work.

WCPO-TV reports the lawsuit seeks reimbursement for the victims, an injunction to stop any violations and civil penalties.

Nelson couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

DeWine says losses total about $52,000.
