Louisiana man arrested for contractor fraud

Eventually, we all hire another party to complete a task for us. This might be to construct something, make repairs or even complete our taxes. When individuals hire an individual or company to complete these tasks, they not only believe that this party has the ability and expertise to complete these projects but also believe that they will be completed. A person that claims they are a licensed professional that can lawfully complete these acts and does not do so or is not properly licensed could face repercussions. In fact, this could result in fraud charges.
