HONOLULU (AP) - Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ Office of Consumer Protection has filed a lawsuit against an appliance repairman they say has conned Oahu customers out of thousands of dollars.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/1hJJwt4 ) that officials said Monday that it filed a lawsuit in Circuit Court against Shane Mulleitner, who owns and operates Shane’s Appliance.

The state is seeking an injunction against the business and a court order to return all money he collected for repairs he either did not complete, or were not necessary. Officials say the state is also seeking civil penalties.
