Alisa Rocha-Ayala says she paid $3000 to Hartley Roofing but no one ever showed up to repair her roof. Sales person Doug Ruder stayed in communication with her and said that Hartley roofing had skipped town with the money.
NewsChannel 9 uncovered documents showing that many people are in the same boat as Ayala. Lots of money has been paid to Hartley Roofing, and lots of people say they haven't seen any action and there's been no word from the company.
Hartley says Doug Ruder has taken the money and not handed over the contracts. NewsChannel 9 got a Forensic Document Examiner to compare Ruder's handwriting with the signatures on the back of the checks. The expert said that Doug did not endorse any of the checks. We've tried to get back in touch with Hartley Roofing, but at this time there's been no response.
