Coeur d’Alene contractor accused of taking more than $790K from victims, failing to complete work

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho – A Coeur d’Alene contractor is accused of taking more than $790,000 from victims across the Inland Northwest. 

The Idaho Attorney General’s Office alleges Alexander A. Welstad, who did business under the names NAA Partners LLC and Mammoth Pole Buildings, violated the state Consumer Protection Act and Idaho Rules of Consumer Protection. 

The AG’s office said Welstad failed to perform services to those who paid for them and refused or failed to provide refunds. 

A consent decree states the “Defendant’s business practices constitute unfair or deceptive acts and practices.” 

The AG personally served NAA Partners with an investigative demand on March 2. Welstad was served on March 4. 

Court records state he declined to respond to the demands and instead agreed to enter into a consent judgment. 

As part of the agreement, Welstad must permanently cease advertising or selling construction or contracting services in Idaho. He can also no longer obtain any type of contracting registration or license throughout the state. 

Court records show 17 complaints were filed with the AG’s office, but more are expected. The AG’s office is now working with Welstad to refund consumers. 

The AG’s office will make a formal announcement about the case on Wednesday. 4 News Now has reached out to Welstad for comment, but has not heard back.
