COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Attorney General is suing a New Carlisle man who he says failed to pick up trash.
Abraham Jaros is accused of accepting money from customers and then not following through with garbage collection services.
Jaros operated a business named Jaros Enterprises in Preble County.
The AG’s Office says he contacted customers using flyers offering his services at $12.00 a month. He said he would pick up the trash once a week.
“Many of these consumers thought they were entering into an agreement with a reputable local business,” Attorney General DeWine said. “Instead, they ended up with trash sitting outside their homes for days or weeks. Businesses that accept payment from consumers must deliver the promised services or provide refunds. This business did neither.”
The AG’s Office and the Better Business Bureau received 30 complaints, but believe more than 600 residents were victimized.
