APPLETON ― A West Avenue man tells Niagara County Sheriff's deputies that an Illinois company where he had sent a tractor part for repair grossly overcharged him.

The complainant told patrol that he had sent the part to RJ'S Machine and Welding in Charin, Ill. for repair. The two parties agreed on a price. The Appleton man paid for the service by credit card. But then noticed that he was overcharged.

After contacting his bank to dispute the charge, he received the part. However, over a period of time, he found several more charges to his credit card by RJ'S Machine and Welding for work that was never done. He again contested the charges with his bank and advised them bank to block the company from being able to charge his card.

The complainant attempted to call the company and speak to the owner, but the owner would not return his call, according to the report, so he called Charin, Ill. law enforcement, who informed him that "similar cases are being investigated in that area for the same company fraudulently charging credit cards for work not being received."

The total amount of charges by RJ'S Machine and Welding are now $4,391.
