Oklahoma Attorney General Charges Edmond Swimming Pool Contractor with Embezzlement
OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s Public Protection Unit filed charges Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court against Gary Robert Oester, 55, of Edmond, for embezzling from homeowners.
According to the six charges, Oester, who is the owner of Indigo Custom Pools, allegedly signed contracts and accepted partial payment to install or repair swimming pools for homeowners in Oklahoma, Canadian and Cleveland counties between March and June, but did not complete the work. Homeowners were allegedly given completion dates and a few were promised refunds. One homeowner reportedly received a partial refund.
The charges were filed following an investigation by the AG’s Public Protection Unit.
The Public Protection Unit protects consumers from fraudulent, unfair or deceptive business practices and can provide conciliation services to help resolve complaints against businesses.
