CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WDTV) -- State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has filed a lawsuit against a Harrison County contractor for accepting payments for products never installed.
According to the Attorney General's Office, Vision Home Improvements "deceived consumers, sanctioned fraud and were unified in executing a scheme of false promises" by accepting down payments for awnings, windows, fire pits that were never installed.
Morrisey is seeking a temporary court order to prohibit the company, based in Clarksburg, from soliciting new business while litigation is going on. The lawsuit seeks full restitution for the customers--who officials say never received refunds--a $5,000 fine for each violation of the state’s Consumer Credit and Protection Act, and reimbursement for investigation and court costs.
The lawsuit was filed in Harrison County Circuit Court and names the company, as well as managing member Eric Facemire and fellow members Robert Lott and Victor Cain as defendants.
