The office of Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a lawsuit against local business Apex Contracting & Roofing and its owner after numerous complaints were filed to the AG's office. The lawsuit accuses the roofing company of fraud, with reported losses to homeowners of more than $70,000.

The lawsuit alleges that Apex and Stewart violated the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act by requiring consumers to pay certain amounts of money prior to beginning work, promising substantive completion by certain dates and failing to provide the promised roofing and construction services in sufficient quality or on time. Reported losses to Missouri consumers are over $70,000.

"As Missouri’s Attorney General, it’s my duty to ensure that those responsible for defrauding Missourians are held accountable,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “We’re here to help, and we urge victims of fraud or scams to report them to our office so that we can take action."
