PEACHTREE CITY, GA (CBS46) –

Better Call Harry has the story of a Peachtree City family who lost tens of thousands of dollars after they paid their contractor cash for a renovation and he allegedly walked off the job.

The family took their case to court but they’re still fighting for justice

Chris King is an unlicensed contractor. He was a no show in Fayette County court. It’s no a surprise to Mary Beth and Michael Byrnes. The Byrnes are suing King after he was a no show for their basement renovation.

The judge ruled in their favor.

"I’m going to go ahead and sign a default judgment in favor of the plaintiffs in the amount of $15,000," said the judge.

$15,000 is the maximum allowed in small claims. It’s a lot money, but not enough to finish their unfinished basement.

Her mom sold her house and moved in, and for the past year, she’s been living in the upstairs bedroom. The Byrnes found King on a neighborhood Facebook page. He completed some of the work, but eventually walked off the job. The Byrnes say they gave him $32,000 in cash.

CBS46 tried to work out a resolution with King back in March, but he claimed the Byrnes owed him money, A demand from a contractor not even licensed in Georgia.

He bonded out and still hasn’t paid.

None of this helps Mary Beth’s mom unless the family can find another $25,000 to finish the job. This retiree’s dreams are gone. This story is the perfect example of why you never pay a contractor up front.

Because the Byrnes have been through so much we want to help. They’ve started a YouCaring page called ‘Please Help Grandma Ann.’
