NBC4

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost announced his office is suing a Central Ohio contractor seeking $105,000 in consumer refunds.  

According to Yost, George Franklin Capps Jr., of Capps Construction, violated Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Home Solicitation Sales Act, when he failed to complete home improvement projects or performed shoddy work for consumers. 

“This guy took huge deposits from trusting clients but deserted the projects without providing refunds or answers,” Yost stated. “It’s time to hold him accountable.” 

Five consumers have filed complaints against Capps, based out of Pickaway County, with Yost’s Consumer Protection Section and the Better Business Bureau in the past two years. The consumers are seeking refunds totaling $105,000.
