The owner of an Elmsford-based construction company has filed a $1.4 million lawsuit claiming a trio of men worked together to swindle him, the Westchester County Business Journal reported. Construction Directions LLC owner Elliott Porco sued the three men and six LLCs claiming they hired him for a job in Brooklyn that never materialized and convinced him to invest in an apartment complex that was never constructed. “Defendants simply took plaintiffs’ money and disappeared… once plaintiffs stopped wiring funds,” the suit says, according to the outlet. Porco himself is facing a lawsuit claiming he owes nearly $500,000 to a Pennsylvania-based subcontractor. [WBJ]
