Alleged Financial Exploitation Of The Elderly Among Felony Charges Facing Missouri Man Accused Of Making False Promises To Do Roofing, Remodeling Work, Fleecing Seven Homeowners Out Of $20K+

From the Office of the Missouri Attorney General:
  • Attorney General Chris Koster announced [] that he filed a criminal case against Donald J. Harralston in Jefferson County for multiple felony counts of financial exploitation of the elderly, stealing, and unlawful merchandising practices. Koster has joined with Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Forrest Wegge in prosecuting Harralston for defrauding Jefferson County consumers.

    Koster alleges that Harralston made false promises to do roofing and remodeling work for consumers. Harralston demanded significant upfront payment then, in most cases, performed no work and provided no materials.

    The total loss is more than $20,000 from seven consumers.

    “When our investigation reveals that a company has ripped off customers, this office will act to punish the scammer and protect Missourians,” Koster said.
