TOPEKA, Kan. — A door-to-door paving company has been banned from doing business in Kansas and ordered to refund three customers.
The business operated under a variety of names including All Star Asphalt, All Star Paving, Asphalt Solutions and All Star Asphalt Paving. According to the Kansas Attorney General's Office, the business violated the state's Consumer Protection Act by failing to provide customers with a completed receipt, failing to advise of their three day right to cancel and cashing checks in less than five business days.
George and James Swartz were ordered to repay $8,500 to a Lawrence resident and two Topeka residents for the violations, and banned from doing business in the state.
“With the summer construction season in full swing, consumers should be on the lookout for these fly-by-night operations looking to make a quick buck,” Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said. “Consumers who are in need of driveway repairs should seek out local, reputable contractors and get multiple written estimates before having any work done.”
