Here is a bad contractor whose contractor scam was quite simple. Donovan Hollier of Iberia Parish, Louisiana, was arrested for textbook contractor fraud.
In a classic bad contractor job, he would promise to do home repairs, ask for a 50% upfront fee, and not do the work. A 50% upfront fee is much too high, and a reputable contractor not on a bad contractor list should charge you much less. In some states, a fee that high may be illegal.
What makes Hollier’s case interesting is that at 26 years old, he is one of the younger con-tractors on here. Will this be a wake-up call for him, or is he destined for a life of crime? Only time will tell.
