— Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says a Missouri paving company can no longer do business in Kansas after violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

Cloud County District Judge Kim Cudney banned Quality Road Construction from doing business in the state and ordered three individuals to refund $19,500 to residents who lost money in their operation.

The ruling came after an investigation by the attorney general's Consumer Protection Division.

Schmidt says the defendants allegedly defrauded at least three Kansas consumers by going door-to-door last summer offering to pave driveways.

The attorney general says the pavers did not disclose all of their charges at the time of the sale, and failed to advise the consumers of their rights under the Consumer Protection Act.

The most reliable source of fraud is private industry aka privatization.
