Last December, Vern and Joyce Sorensen hired Garcia after he was recommended by remodeling company Home Wise to build a bedroom and bathroom in Sorensen’s home.

The couple says Garcia took advantage of their situation and left them with hardly any work done and thousands of dollars in debt.

A GoFundMe page has now been established for the couple.
