HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. – An unlicensed contractor with a home improvement business was arrested last week after admitting he took thousands of dollars from customers and never provided the services they paid for, accord to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office. Chris Asselin, owner and operator of Asselin Home Improvements, sent a salesperson from his company to provide an estimate at a potential customer’s Hernando County home March 13. The customer wanted new doors and windows installed after a sustaining fire damage. The salesman took measurements and all the necessary information so Asselin could calculate the cost of the work. Asselin gave a $17,945 estimate, and on March 16, the customer gave Asselin a $12,000 check as a deposit toward the work. Asselin never came back, and the doors and windows were never installed. The victim contacted the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office. An Investigation revealed that Asselin deposited the $12,000 check, but neverordered any of the doors or windows and never attempted to complete the work.
