BISMARCK, N.D. — The attorney general’s consumer protection division is investigating the sudden closure of a building and remodeling contractor in Fargo.

KVRR-TV says the owner of Studs to Rugs closed the business without warning, leaving an unknown number of customers in limbo. Assistant Attorney General Parrell Grossman says a state law approved two years ago makes contractor fraud a crime.

Grossman says the owner has not responded to customers’ calls and attempts by his office for information.
