Lead paint scammer busted - Rutland Herald

The federal government requires that lead paint be removed before remodeling Now a Woodstock man has allegedly used that requirement to scam thousands of dollars from customers.

"The victim told police Arbuiso kept filing extensions with the state Department of Health to remove the lead paint and repeatedly told her bad weather was the reason why he couldn’t complete the job, according to court records. Pontbriand said the victim told Arbuiso in August 2019 to give her the deposit back so she could pay someone else for the work. The victim reported Arbuiso told her the job would be completed in the following weeks, but he never returned to the building. She told police he asked her for money two more times to finish the job, but she refused to give him any more money and she didn’t hear from him again."
