AMITYVILLE –More alleged victims of a Smithtown-based contractor have come forward after News 12’s report Wednesday.

News 12 reported that Capstone Remodeling and owner Lee Moser were paid to lift homes that were once destroyed by Superstorm Sandy. After contracts were signed and thousands had been paid, homeowners say work was either not performed or underperformed.

David Ramroop, of Amityville, told News 12 that a second party, Blair Rocchio, was also involved in the alleged scam.

“Their whole goal I don’t think is to do the work. It’s to collect money,” said Ramroop.

There have been 13 complaints against Capstone in Nassau and four in Suffolk. The district attorney’s offices in both counties are reviewing the allegations.

News 12’s efforts to contact Lee Moser have not been successful.

Blair Rocchio told News 12 that he was simply an employee of Capstone Remodeling and doesn’t know anything about jobs not getting done or about any alleged scam.
