Chicago —(ENEWSPF)—November 13, 2014. Attorney General Lisa Madigan today filed a lawsuit against a Belleville man for operating as an unlicensed roofer and collecting at least $12,000 in payments from Illinois homeowners for performing shoddy work that did not fix repairs or, in some cases, failing to do any repair work at all.
Madigan’s lawsuit was filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court alleging Mark Beaupre was an unlicensed roofing contractor who solicited area homeowners for roof and other home repair work through CMM Construction, which is not registered as a business in Illinois.
The lawsuit alleges Beaupre solicited St. Clair County residents for repair work. According to the complaint, Beaupre repeatedly completed shoddy repair work or did no work at all and refused to provide refunds to consumers despite their demands.
“When a contractor takes a homeowner’s hard-earned money and does little or no work, that is a violation of the law,” Madigan said.
Madigan’s lawsuit seeks to ban Beaupre from working in Illinois and provide restitution to his customers.
Assistant Attorney General Christine McClimans is handling the case for Madigan’s Consumer Fraud Bureau.
