AURORA -- Tony and Doris Woulard lost thousands to a man they are calling a scam artist.

They say a friend gave them contact information for Courtney Gordon, who represented himself as a roofing contractor who could help get their hail-damaged roof repaired.

"He told us he would fix our roof, so we gave him part of the funds needed to get the project going," said Tony Woulard. "We thought twice about up-front money, but a friend had spoken up for him."

Police say Gordon has a lengthy record and has two cases pending in Denver and Arapahoe County for theft and grand larceny.

But even with the bad news about Gordon and his interactions with other customers, the Woulards got great news Friday, when the team decided to help them get their new roof, while court cases continue.

"We just want to try to let people know roofers are not all 'shady' our goal is to help people who have been compromised," said Jeff Posey. "For us, it's all about making sure folks don't get taken advantaged of."

The scam help folks say they will work with roofing companies, and workers to make sure Doris Woulard gets the kind of roof she wants.

To date, the scam help line has put new roofs on 13 homes on the front range, an area which is always in the mix when weather flares up.
