Wasden announces consumer protection judgment against appliance repair business

Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced a consumer protection judgment against a north Idaho appliance repair business and its owner. The judgment prohibits Michael Scott, the owner of Appliance Corral Service in Hayden, from operating a business in Idaho.

In August, the attorney general filed a consumer protection action in Kootenai County District Court, alleging that Scott accepted more than $1,600 from consumers for repair services he failed to provide. The resulting judgment includes a restitution provision requiring Scott to provide refunds to consumers who filed complaints. Scott also must pay $10,000 in civil penalties and reimburse the Office of the Attorney General for fees and costs related to the case.

“We learned of this business and its practices from Idaho consumers who took the time to file complaints with my office,” Wasden said. “I want to thank those consumers who brought this to our attention so we could investigate and take action. I encourage other Idahoans who experience similar troubling activity in the marketplace to let us know.”

Consumers can file complaints with the Office of the Attorney General here.
