Two contractors from Westchester and one from Dutchess have been charged after police say they scammed numerous customers in Greenwich.

Greenwich Police say they arrested Weber Marin, 34, of White Plains, Ilir Cubi, 41, of Yonkers and Joseph Monserrate, 31, of Poughkeepsie on Sunday, June 9 after receiving complaints made by customers about being scammed.

The three men had advertised plumbing repair services under an assumed business name and obtained work at three different Greenwich residences, according to police.

Each of the men then conducted a requested repair and demanded on-the-spot payment for the work in excess of the industry standard, police say.

After a lengthy investigation, police identified the subjects, obtained warrants for their arrest and charged them with the following:

  • Illegal sales without a tax permit
  • Violation of home improvement contract requirements
  • Offering home repair without a license
  • Illegal use of a fictitious trade name
  • No notice of cancellation
  • Failure to provide notice of cancellation rights

Weber, Marin and Cubi each posted a court-set bond of $10,000 and are scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Monday, June 17.
