Spouse owned a business in which we had hired a contractor to be a part of our business and turns out the contractor was working with other businesses and we didn’t know he could only work with one. We had to close the business down once we were informed by a detective that this was not the legal way to run this type of business and we were unable to pay back a $6k deposit to a customer.
