Forum Title: Two Roofing Firms Banned From Kansas
It seems that two Nebraska roofing companies have been banned temporarily from doing business in Kansas. They have had numerous violations against them, including not having valid registration certificates, not letting people know they have three days to cancel transactions, and lying about their company being a corporation. Quote: 2 roofing firms banned from operating in KansasBy Hays PostTwo Nebraska roofers have been temporarily banned from doing business in Kansas, according to Attorney General Derek Schmidt. In a lawsuit filed in Shawnee County District Court, Schmidt accused Mark Wagner, a/k/a Mark Schneidewind, Susan Cuthill and Dollhouse, Inc., a/k/a MWR, Inc., and Midwest Restorations, of numerous violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. Dollhouse, Inc., is a Kansas Foreign For Profit Corporation organized under the laws of Nebraska. Dollhouse, Inc., is owned and operated by Wagner, a/k/a Mark Schneidewind, and Cuthill. MWR, Inc., is a fictitious company and not registered with the Kansas or Nebraska Secretary of State‚s office. The investigation found that the defendants have been doing roofing business in Kansas despite not having obtained a valid registration certificate through the attorney general‚s office as required by Kansas law. Additionally, the defendants used door-to-door salesmen to solicit their roofing services and did not give consumers notice of their three day right to cancel the transaction and duplicate notice of their three day right to cancel the transaction as required by law. The defendants are also accused of misrepresenting their status to consumers by claiming their company, MWR, Inc., is a valid corporation when it is not. Many of the consumers solicited were elderly. Shawnee County District Judge Rebecca Crotty has entered a temporary restraining order prohibiting the defendants from operating in Kansas pending the outcome of the case. The attorney general is seeking civil penalties and restitution for Kansas consumers. Source

Wow, that is pretty messed up stuff when you get banned from working in a state. It is always best to go about things the right way so this never happens. You also have to be honest with your customers. If you're not, that is one sure way to put yourself out of business.

I think they did the right thing here. If you are operating illegally, then you should be banned from doing further work. Laws are set up to protect consumers and we have to follow those laws as written.

There is only so long you can get away with dirty tactics before it starts to catch up with you. People are less tolerantwith things nowadays, so the first time they see something, they will report you.
