Foley Woman Scammed By Contractor

Foley Contractor Scam
A Foley homeowner says a contractor took her money, but didn't complete the job.

FOLEY, AL- In early January, Ruth Feuerstein hired a contractor for a $7,000 drywall repair and trim work job.

But Feuerstein did everything wrong when she hired the man, who appears to more of a crook than a contractor.  Feuerstein, who met the man at Home Depot, gave the contractor $2,500 as a down payment.

Feuerstein admits she made a mistake when hiring this guy. She didn’t sign a contract, did not ask to see the contractor’s business license and insurance and failed to get references.

We aren’t identifying the contractor because he hasn’t been charged with a crime. Police say because he did a little work, it’s not a criminal matter, but rather a civil issue.
