2 of Tampa Bay’s most notorious home improvement scammers back behind bars


TWO CONVICTED CON ARTISTS WE HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING FOR ABOUT FIVE YEARS NOW ARE BEHIND BARS AGAIN. THIS TIME IN CONNECTICUT. CARLTON DUNKO AND FRANK PUREBER WERE RUNNING A NOTORIOUS ROOFING SCHEME AROUND TAMPA BAY WHEN 8 ON YOUR SIDE HELPED SEND THEM TO PRISON FOUR YEARS AGO. TONIGHT THEY ARE SITTING IN A CONNECTICUT PRISON CELL. INVESTIGATOR MARK DOUGLAS SHOWS US WHERE THESE CONTRACTOR CON ARTISTS HAVE LANDED NOW. THEY LAND ADD LOT OF TIME RIGHT HERE BEFORE HEADING TO STATE PRISON FOR THEIR TIMES. NOW THEY ARE DOING TIME IN CONNECTICUT. WE HAVE BEEN CHASING THESE TWO GUYS FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS AS THEY MOVED FROM ONE SCAM TO THE NEXT. CARLTON DUNKO AND FRANK PUREBER LANDED IN A FLORIDA PRISON AFTER WE DOCUMENTED THEM RIPPING OFF ROOFING CUSTOMERS IN SIX TAMPA BAY COUNTIES. BACK THEN THEY RAN A COMPANY CALLED MBRC CONSTRUCTION. IT WAS DEVASTATING. I COULDN’T AFFORD A NEW ROOF. PAMELA IS ONE OF THE 100 VICTIMS. YOU WENT THROUGH A LOT OF MISERY FOR THAT? A COUPLE OF YEARS OF IT, YEAH. BACK AND FORTH TO COURT AND SEEING WHAT THE JUDGE IS GOING TO DO. LATELY THESE PARTNERS IN CRIME HAVE BEEN WORKING AS HOME IMPROVEMENT MARKETING CONSULTANTS FOR ANOTHER ROOFER NAMED NEIL. WE INVESTIGATED HIM AND FOUND HIM LYING TO CUSTOMERS IN PASCO AND HILLSBOROUGH WHILE SIGNING THEM UP FOR HOME IMPROVEMENTS SANCTIONED BY THE PACE PROGRAM. LAST WEEK HE LOST HIS MARKETING TEAM WHEN THEY ENDED UP ON AN INVOLUNTARY LEAVE OF ABSENCE. BOTH MEN LANDED IN THE BRIDGEPORT CORRECTIONAL CENTER IN CONNECTICUT FOR LARCENY. LARCENY THEY COMMITTED IN THAT STATE SIX YEARS AGO. IT JUST MAKES ME SMILE. LATELY DUNKO HAS BEEN LIVING IN LUXURY AT THE GULF AND COUNTRY CLUB WITH HIS WIFE WHY PAYING A FORTUNE IN RESTITUTION TO HIS NBRC VICTIM AT THE RATE OF $500 A MONTH. BUT HE HAS A NEW CRIB NOW AND ITS NO COUNTRY CLUB. CARLTON DUNKO AND HUSBAND PARTNER IN CRIME FRANK PUREBER ARE BOTH SERVING ONE YEAR SENTENCE IN CONNECTICUT. FAR AWAY FROM HOME AND HE WON’T BE COMING HOME ANYTIME SOON. BACK TO YOU. AND BEFORE MOVING TO TAMPA BAY TO RUN MBRC THEY RAN A $60 MILLION ROOFING SCAM IN 11
