The Sedgwick County Consumer Fraud and Economic Crime Division today announced a $43,424 settlement against a Minnesota construction company

The fine against Delta Construction of Woodbury, Minnesota resulted from over 142 violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. Delta called itself a construction company, specializing in roofing, siding, windows and gutters. The company entered into 242 contracts with consumers in Sedgwick County from July, 2009 to May, 2011 through door-to-door sales.

The violations included not registering the business with the Kansas Secretary of State to do business in Kansas, not obtaining a transient merchant license while doing business in Sedgwick County, failing to furnish a consumer with a fully completed receipt/copy of a contract and not including a mandated three-day “notice of cancellation” with each contract.

After receiving 208 work permits from the Wichita City Code of Enforcement office, 116 permits expired because Delta did not request a final inspection. Those 116 residences received no final inspection. Four homes never passed a final inspection.

Similar offenses occurred in Derby, Mulvane and Goddard.

The $43 thousand dollar settlement covers investigative fees, civil penalties, court costs and restitution to three Sedgwick County residents.
