MOORE, OKLA. - Our In Your Corner team has new details involving a local contractor accused of preying on vulnerable Oklahoma families.

Customers say Glenn McCoy took their money and bailed on the job.

McCoy refused to meet us in-person, but promised to smooth things over with dissatisfied customers.

“They'll get what they have coming either between me or I'm also insured and I have special insurance,” McCoy said. “I have double the insurance I need.”

Three months later and there’s still no money and no sign of McCoy.

The In Your Corner team has learned the contractor was recently evicted from his apartment and business property.

He was also charged with writing a bogus check for supplies and now he's accused of ripping off tornado victims.   

Kristi Dunn's son was sucked up and hurled half the distance of a football field.

The family says while they were recovering from their injuries, McCoy was sucking their pocketbook dry. 

“$69,000 and I've got nothing,” Kristi said.

McCoy did have someone install this power pole, but even it was installed without a permit.

Kathy Chow says the same thing happened to her.

She's out about $33,000 and losing hope, fast.

“I just got through with stage 4 cancer and then I'm going through a divorce, then this,” Chow said.

More Oklahoma families feel duped and strapped for cash.

The Harmoning family says McCoy did shoddy work and continues to string them along.

“We've depleted our savings,” Wife, Courtney, said. “We've used some of his retirement money and we still can't live here yet.”

The best chance for restitution for families is if the state files criminal charges against McCoy.

Our investigation caught the attention of local and state authorities.  

We know the Attorney General's office has launched its own investigation into McCoy.

Meanwhile we tracked down McCoy's son who told us to get lost.

Word is his dad already skipped town.

If you have any information on McCoy's whereabouts call the In Your Corner hotline.
