(KMOV) -- A Creve Coeur man called News 4 after he paid a Belleville contractor for windows he never received. Edwin Brownstein says he called the Window Depot back in August, five months later he's still waiting for his windows.

Brownstein says he paid Mark Creonte $1,825, and that Creonte won't return his phone calls.

News 4 attempted to reach Creonte, but he never called back. A woman who works for Creonte said the business is going bankrupt, and offered no help for customers like Brownstein. Creonte's employee would not provide her name, but told us the business has been vandalized by upset customers.

Window Depot is headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas. A company representative told News 4 Mark Creonte is an independent contractor who sold Window Depot products, but they stopped taking orders from Creonte. The company representative told News 4 they are having problems reaching Creonte for an explanation.

In Creve Coeur Edwin Brownstein is still hoping Creonte will repay the $1,825. Brownstein discouraged anyone from calling the company and said, "please stay away from them, don't touch them, these people are no good."
