Contractor sentenced for consumer fraud

name of PSC New Home Construction Inc. During that time Slododzian and his com- pany contracted with five homeowners on roof re-shingling jobs. The homeowners paid their deposits and each of them had their roofs stripped of the old shingles but then no further work was done. The homeowners had to find other contractors to finish the jobs and they nev- er got their deposits back. This is Slobodzian’s third conviction un-

Act of false representation, failing to refund payments within 15 days of receiving no- tice of cancelled contracts, and failing to provide clients with proper contracts which contained information required under con- sumer protection regulations.

der the Consumer Protection Act. He was convicted in 2011 for similar offences and received a 71-day jail term followed by two years probation. His company, PSC New Home Construc- tion Inc., was fined $90,000. Justice of the Peace John Balkwill pre- sided over Slododzian’s latest court case. He sentenced Slobodzian to four months in jail, followed by two years probation, with an order to pay more than $12,500 restitution to the homeowners he bilked. The justice also levied a $41,000 fine against Slobod- zian’s company. The consumer services ministry reported that Slobodzian is also facing charges of failing to comply with his previous proba- tion terms. He is also facing charges related to con- tract work done through another company of his, known as Country Comfort. The ministry maintains a Consumer Be- ware List at ware. Residents are urged to consult this list before signing any contractor agreement.
