ND-Scam Alert in Oil Patch

North Dakota officials warn of contractor scam in oil patch


The Associated Press - January 20, 2020

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general's office is warning about a scam involving bogus contractors who have been taking advantage of unsuspecting rural homeowners in the oil patch.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has issued a cease and desist order against Gorman General Contracting and 11 individuals accused of violating the state's consumer fraud, transient merchant and contractor laws.

Investigators say the group is part of a large out-of-state crime ring known as "Travelers" or Irish Travelers" and has used deceptive means to get money from customers.

The suspects have performed work without permission and used intimidation to make the victim pay for shoddy work, among other things.
