COMPLAINT: Michael Rosenman, Edina, Minn.
"I hired Al Stai to completely rebuild my driveway and patio. I paid him half upfront and agreed to pay the other half upon completion. From day one, he and his sons showed up on the job late or not at all.
"He made excuse after excuse for not showing up. He had promised he would have a seven-man crew at my house every day until the job was complete, but there were never more than three guys at any one time.
"His work was mediocre, improperly graded and sloppily laid. He asked for another $3,000 before the job was done so he could pay for a larger team. I gave him the money.
"The next day, he disappeared and stopped answering his phone. It will cost me $20,000 to redo all his work."
DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I would like my money back."
STATUS: Penalty Box
