These situations are what a contractor's bond is for. You should be able to contact the bonding company and get some sort of satisfaction. They will in turn go after the contractor for the money.....he was bonded, right?

I don't care what anybody says if the contractor asks for any money before the material is delivered or any work is done he's up to no good.

first you'll need a judgment from a court of law.

He would also need to be actually 'bonded'. Not every state requires that. The states we work in do not.
