TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A Kansas judge has ordered an Oklahoma paving company to pay a $100,000 penalty for deceiving consumers in its door-to-door sales.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Tuesday a default judgment was entered this week in Shawnee County District Court against Will J. Harrison Jr. Harrison did business as Wester Construction and Will Harrison Paving.
Judge Rebecca Crotty found that the company violated Kansas consumer protection laws. She also ordered the company to pay slightly more than $13,000 in restitution to two Kansas residents.
Schmidt says consumers should be especially cautious of door-to-door home repair salespeople claiming to offer good deals.
