TO NC SENIOR CONSUMER FRAUD TASK FORCE MEMBERS

******Alert #309******

Task Force member Jim Grier of the Cary, NC Police Department advises that his agency arrested Randall Lee Joyner of Rocky Mount last Friday as he arrived at the home of a 78 year old man, allegedly preparing to run another home repair scam on him. The Cary PD charged Joyner with 19 counts each of obtaining property by false pretenses, exploiting an elderly or disabled person, and conspiracy. The charges pertained to $89,486 in allegedly fraudulent work done for the 78 year old man and his 81 year old neighbors.

Police first learned of the alleged scams from a bank employee who spotted the transactions.

The conspiracy charges arose from work Joyner allegedly did with four other men. Some of those four men were associated with a Rocky Mount-based home repair group that was the subject of a 36 agency local-state-federal law enforcement task force in the late 1990ís and early 2000ís. That task force took down the group and secured over 300 felony convictions against its members. Many of the groupís members are out of prison, off probation and appear to have resumed their earlier practices of repeatedly charging home owners for repairs that are unnecessary or not even performed. Based upon those developments, Detective Grier and officials from various law enforcement and licensing agencies in North Carolina recently reconvened the multi-agency law enforcement task force on home repair fraud.
