Harrison County contractor admits to fraud

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Bradley Glaspell, of Salem, West Virginia, admitted to defrauding over 70 customers out of more than a half a million dollars through his contracting businesses, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Glaspell, the owner and operator of Over the Top Roofing, LLC, and Helping Hands Home Improvement, pled guilty today in federal court to “Wire Fraud.”  Glaspell falsely advertised his businesses on social media, claiming to be a licensed contractor when in fact he was not. He required down payments for materials but then failed to complete the work as promised and used the money he collected for his own personal expenses.

The fraud committed by Glaspell totaled $542,000.
