Massachusetts AG Suit: Unlicensed Contractor Abandoned Projects After Pocketing Upfront Cash From Homeowners

From the Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General:

  • A Framingham man has been sued and ordered to stop any contracting services without a license after allegedly engaging in home improvement projects without proper registration, failing to complete the work, and misappropriating tens of thousands of dollars from a consumer, Attorney General Martha Coakley announced today.

    The lawsuit filed against Kyle Buckminster last week in Suffolk Superior Court seeks civil penalties and consumer restitution for violations of the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act, due to allegations he misrepresented himself as a licensed home improvement contractor and abandoned projects for which he had received payment.

The AGO declared victory in the press and has not followed up. $425.00 was collected and over 157k is still owed. There has not been a contempt order put in place and the process is a joke. Buckminster was last in Connecticut caught stealing from the till at the Tile Shop and trying to go out on disability.
