ND Couple Ordered To Stop Alleged Building Scam

January 24, 2013, 11:35 AM


North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has ordered a Fargo couple who allegedly ran a building scam to stop doing business in the state.

George Nelson III and Karla Nelson already are charged in South Dakota, and George Nelson has been incarcerated in Minnesota for a similar scam. Stenehjem alleges that the Nelsons scammed consumers in at least nine North Dakota counties, taking money in advance and doing little or no work. He says they also allegedly operated without a contractor's license.

A telephone listing for the Nelsons in Fargo is disconnected.

Authorities say the Nelsons have done business under numerous names, including Baron Buildings and Ag Pro Buildings.
