The Michigan Attorney General's Office has told an Oakland County snow-plowing operation that has been the subject of 7 Action News reports to stop doing business.
Five Star Landscaping and Snow Removal was given a cease-and-desist order on Monday.
Numerous people have called 7 Action News to report that they paid the company to remove their snow, only to have the work not performed.
7 Action News' Taking Action reporter Ameera David has been in contact with the AGs office, notifying them of the claims. Last week, 7 Action News learned an investigation had been opened, and this week, action has been taken.
The Attorney General's office also informed the company that they intend to file lawsuits on behalf of the customers.
The cease-and-desist order covers two companies operated by Karl Bolin, Blizzard Lawn and Snow, LLC and Five Star Landscaping and Seal Coating, LLC. It is unclear if the companies are operating under the assumed name of Five Star Landscaping and Snow Removal.
