How can a construction Fraud case be build against you? I have charges against me for construction fraud and I'm not a fraud! and I have did projects for over 40 clients. I had several family emergencies happen at one time that was a disaster and I had to take for 2 weeks (I started doing some work). I couldn't pay clients back because i payed a couple of bills i had and didn't know that this will come up or i would of put it aside after they canceled on me for the time i missed with them. I did stay in contact with them.. they did have my right number and address etc. i just didn't have the money to pay them back right away at all... and did send 2 payments to them but it wasn't the full refund yet! so they filed charges on me.. what can i do? i'm so scared and I'm so angry because I'm not a fraud!
