ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is advising consumers to be extremely cautious when dealing with Home Solutions’ owner Kevin Moloney.
According to police, Moloney was recently charged with multiple felonies in St. Louis County in connection with his business. The charges include passing bad checks, theft, fraud and forgery.
The BBB says more than 40 complaints have been filed against Home Solutions, many involve kitchen or bathroom remodeling. Customers said they paid Moloney and Home Solutions thousands of dollars for work that either was never started or never completed. The BBB says Home Solutions customers have already lost $400,000 and the figure could rise.
According to a BBB investigator, the Home Solutions office in the 12060 block of Manchester Road currently has a “For Lease” sign in a front window and workers have been working to dismantle the company’s showroom. A worker told the investigator the items would be placed in storage until the future of the business could be determined.
News 4 investigated Home Solutions after numerous St. Louisans said they paid thousands to Moloney for home renovations, but the work was never finished.
