Mr. Dean Hiatt of Colorado Springs, Colorado signed a contract using Stan Lewis Construction. We signed a contract for a $500,000 buildout of space with Dean Hiatt. Since he did not have his contractor’s license in Colorado he uses a friend’s contractor license for his contracts, Stan Lewis of Stan Lewis construction.
We were over charged by approximately $100,000 and were told to pay or we would not get a certificate of occupancy. In the end after several meetings with Stan and Dean we had no choice to pay the extortion since we wanted to get our business up and running.
