The Secaucus Police Department has received six separate complaints from residents against “Soriano Builders, LLC” also known as “Soriano Carpentry and Remodeling,” operated by Gabino Soriano – who is also known as “Rudy.”

The complaints range from defrauding the homeowners by receiving payments for work never performed, issuance of bad checks and threats, authorities said

A cooperative investigation focused on Soriano Builders has been launched, which will be spearheaded by the Hudson County Office of Consumer Protection in conjunction with the Secaucus Police Department.

“All legal means available, both civil and criminal, will be pursued in an attempt to seek relief for the residents of Secaucus,” Mayor Michael Gonnelli said in a statement.

All residents who have been defrauded by this company or its subsidiaries and have not yet
reported it, are asked to contact the Secaucus Police Department at (201) 330-2060 or the
Hudson County Office of Consumer Protection, which operates under the New Jersey Attorney General’s Division of Consumer Affairs Office.

Chief Steve Krywinski of Hudson County Office of Consumer Protection will be the lead investigator and can be contacted at (201)795-6231 or emailed at skrywinski@hcnj.us.
