KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Bob Williams is facing six felony charges from the Missouri Attorney General after he's accused of scamming people out of thousands of dollars for work he never performed.

The 41 Action News Investigators first reported on Williams and his business Xtreme Concrete & Outdoor Living in October, 2015.

Williams is accused of three counts of receiving stolen property and three counts of deceptive business practice.

"He was just so professional and i trusted him," Gail Yaw said in October 2015.
But Yaw said that trust of the now 46-year-old Williams was misplaced.
Two years ago, Yaw hired Williams to pour concrete in two basement rooms.
She paid him $2,800 up front for a $3,900 job, but she says Williams never did it, and she never got her money back.
"Judgment will be entered in favor of the plaintiff and against the defendant for $9,000," Jackson County Judge Robert Trout ruled in January against Williams and his company.
The case began when Michelle Thomas says she gave Williams $9,000 as a deposit on a $21,000 job for an outdoor living space. According to the complaint against Williams, the work was not done and the money was not returned.
Williams also faces receiving stolen property and deceptive business practice charges for the Thomas case.
Over the last two years, Julie Schmidt, Sean Daugherty and Doug Southern have told the 41 Action News Investigators similar stories about Williams ripping them off.
Mickie Turner told the 41 Action News Investigators she made the mistake of letting Williams runs her business.
She said Williams bilked her out of nearly $146,000.
"He's a thief, he's a fraud," Turner said in November 2015.
Williams appeared in court on the six felony charges on Thursday.
He did not have an attorney at that time and is trying to get a public defender.
Williams is due back in court later this month.
Below are the criminal complaint and probably cause statement for the case.
