Midland Police Searching for Man Passing Himself Off as a Contractor

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

MIDLAND - We have a scam alert out of Midland.

Several people trying to build their dream homes are being duped and left broke.

Police are looking for 55-year-old Raul Urias.

He's passing himself off as a contractor who builds and remodels homes in the area.

He convinces victims that he can do it at a low cost and construction can be complete in a matter of days.

However, once a substantial down payment is made, he's never heard from again.    

Police are looking for Urias and would like to speak with others who may have been fooled by him.
