N4T Investigators: Complaint: RV broker still scamming Tucson customers

Posted: Updated:

Last summer, we told you how a father and son stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from dozens of Tucson residents in a recreational vehicle scam. They went to prison. But since then, the News 4 Tucson investigators have found that complaints continue to come in.
The owner of RV Coachworks on North Sixth Avenue is now in prison but a new complaint has surfaced.

"I have no recourse. I'm stuck," said Diane Tremblay.

Tremblay says RV Coachworks was paid more than $2,500 by her insurance company to make repairs to the pullout on her RV. She says the company never completed the work.

"How can you say you have to rebuild it, and then get the money, not use the money for that purpose and have someone waiting for five months to get that one thing done," she said.

Tremblay says she went to RV Coachworks because she had worked with the company in the past. Now, she says, the company cashed an insurance check but never came out to do any of the work. She said instead RV Coachworks worked on items like an overhead vent, instead. She never authorized that work.
"I've been taking that for five months. The last conversation I had with Janet, she told me to call a lawyer," she said.

Janet is Janet Caracciolo, who operates RV Coachworks. Her husband, Lorenzo Caracciolo, Sr. and their son, Lorenzo, Jr. went to prison on theft-related charges, last summer.

The two men scammed nearly half a million dollars from Tucson residents by offering to sell their RVs on consignment and then pocketing the money from sales. Lorenzo, Sr. was sentenced to five years in prison. His son, to two.

"You don't like to feel like you're stupid when you trust somebody that you dealt with and you thought were trustworthy," Tremblay said.

We reached out to the owner's wife about Tremblay's allegations. She refused to comment. We'll continue covering this story. If you have a tip for the News 4 Tucson Investigators, email investigators@kvoa.com or call 955-4444.
