ROCHESTER, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) — New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced Dec. 8 that his office has filed legal action against George Frisch, president of Dynabuild Construction Group Inc., seeking a permanent injunction to stop his alleged fraud.
According to Schneiderman, Frisch repeatedly and persistently defrauded consumers from the Rochester area, taking full or partial payments for home improvement contracts yet never performing work on the projects. In the few cases where he did perform work, Schneiderman’s office alleges the work was shoddy and unprofessional.
Frisch specifically took deposits for snowplowing and home improvement work, yet purportedly spent the money on financing a luxurious lifestyle. Eleven consumers lost more than $70,000 in deposits, Schneiderman’s office alleges.
“When hardworking New Yorkers hire a contractor to make home improvements, they deserve to have that work fully completed and in a timely manner,” Schneiderman said. “My office will keep working to ensure that fraudulent home contractors are brought to justice.”
Schneiderman’s lawsuit seeks more than $70,000 in restitution for consumers and more than $58,0000 in penalties and costs.
