(KSL News) -- An Eyewitness News Investigation involving the billing practices of a local roofing company netted some action. Today Utah's Division of Consumer Protection cited Kimball Roofing.
We found Kimball Roofing had filed several lawsuits against clients. The company claimed those customers owed more money for the work it did. The customers say they paid the amount written on the contracts, and didn't owe anything else.
Utah's Division of Consumer Protection agrees with the customers. The citation was for two counts of violating the Consumer Sales Practices Act.
Francine Giani, State Consumer Protection: "You've got individuals who have paid for what they thought was a service. They completed that association, that arrangement. And then months down the road, weeks, or shortly after paying what they thought was the full amount, they were then hit up for yet another bill from the business. I think that's problematic."
The company could face up to two-thousand dollars in fines.
