Customers want money back, will attend hearing

To the editor:

Many will recall that 11 years ago, in 2007, Nicholas Curro III, doing business as Veilleux, Price-Rite and Perron Oli Companies, accepted heating oil contracts from 313 families in the Biddeford/Saco area and failed to deliver per those contracts. We are now in the 11th year since the attorney general won a civil judgment in the amount of $400,000 and the case still lingers in the court system. No one has received a penny in restitution. I have a file an inch-thick with court date memos, postponements, decisions from the attorney general’s office and press articles. I still recall the Channel 13 news videos of Curro ramming the Channel 13 news van.

In any case, State Rep. Stedman Seavey has now stepped forward and supported our cause by meeting with Linda Conti, assistant attorney general, and we have another court date, 9 a.m. Monday, March 19 at the York County Court House in Alfred.

This hearing will center on Curro’s assets and ability to pay the $400,000 for which he is liable. In Ms. Conti’s latest letter (dated Feb. 9), she pleads “We hope as many of you will be able to attend the hearing.” Rep. Seavey tells me he will be there. I encourage interested parties to attend this hearing next Monday.

For reference: Civil Action Docket No. York County CV- 08-14.
