Fergus Falls, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A small business owner in Otter Tail county is happy with the news of the recent arrest of Dennis Burton. Burton, a West Fargo contractor, is accused of scamming at least four people in Otter Tail and people in four states.

Don Krause of Fergus Falls is one of those victims. The self employed man was hired by Burton in 2001 to finish work on a steel building in Elizabeth. He never got paid and was out 500 dollars.

DON KRAUSE - Scam Victim: "I put a garage door in, I fixed the end, put screws in that he didn't finish. Never seen a check, and I never seen a check and I never seen a check."

Burton swindled two more individuals in the area just last year, owing more than $5,000. He was arrested in Sioux Falls on December 28th for theft of deception.
