BISMARCK, North Dakota — Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem is urging North Dakota consumers to make sure contractors are fully licensed before giving them advance money.
Stenehjem says two more unlicensed contractors recently were banned from doing business in the state, bringing the total since January 2014 to 14.
Stenehjem says the 14 contractors were paid thousands and sometimes tens of thousands of dollars in advance money for work that wasn't completed.
By law, contractors must be licensed with the secretary of state if they do work valued at $2,000 or more.
