A local media outlet was able to return $2,000 to a Paterson family whose contractor bailed on them time and time again.
Lina Aguilar, who is battling Lupus, first hired the contractor last year to repair her leaking roof and gutters, ABC7 reports . She gave him $2,000 -- but he didn't show on the start date -- or at all.
Aguilar demanded a refund, but when she got it, the check bounced, according to ABC7.
After months of trying to track down the contractor, the news outlet finally was able to locate the contractor, whose business had since closed down, returning Auilar's $2,000 to her in cash.
