I have the following question:
Subj: Where would I report bad contractor behavior?
A contractor in my area is asking for 50% of the quoted price for the work as cash up front with a promise to come back in two weeks to do the work. He also refuses to provide a contract for the work he’s being offered to perform.
Should I report this behavior to a civil organization? Who do I report to? Sheriff? Police? Tax office?
I realize that https://diy.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic says
Legal questions, including contracts with builders, contractor negotiation, and rental agreements.
but this feels more like civil responsibility and less of a rant or a legal question.
Is there a better site on the network to ask this question?
I hate to clog up the pipes with a bad/dumb question so I figured I would start at meta.
