MENOMONEE FALLS - Last night there was a huge pile of wood here. Tonight this is all that's left after a tree service that abandoned the job for a week finally followed through.
The homeowner fought for justice. Tonight, she got it.
$1,000 of Ann Farrenkopf's money is back in her hands. It took almost a week to get it, when a tree service calling themselves Arbor Tech Tree Care left a mess in her yard. After a week of waiting, and police on the scene, Ann got a call from the crew leader.
"He said he was in a pickle, that he needed his equipment to get some work done, and I said that's funny because I'm in a pickle here too because i need some work done that I paid for."
Just like Joe Bach of New Berlin, scammed out of thousands earlier this month from the same company.
"They're as phony as a six dollar bill," Bill says.
Ann had that in her arsenal when she went after what she was owed.
