Jessy Nguyen told KSL Investigators a man named Ofa showed up at his mom’s house last June, offering to do some work. His mom hired Ofa to pour concrete, put in a fence, and do some landscaping work, paying more than $40,000.
“He did the work, like he started,” said Nguyen, “but as soon as he got the money, he stopped.”
Nguyen said both he and his mom tried to reach Ofa multiple times to get the job finished, without success.
“He’ll give you a sob story of why he can’t come, and then he just stops answering your calls,” said Nguyen.
