EDWARDSVILLE — Vivint Home Security faces more litigation over an employee's alleged fraud.
Kenneth Tripler of Granite City filed a complaint on July 16 in Madison County Circuit Court against Vivint Home Security and Ben Cenevari, alleging the security system providers coerced him into signing a contract.
According to the complaint, Canevari falsely told Tripler that Vivint merged with another well-known security system company and the homeowner needed to upgrade his system. Tripler then received several bills, even after closing his account, the complaint states.
Tripler requests a jury trial and damages of more than $50,000. He is represented by Phillip Baldwin of Scroggins Law Office in Granite City.
Another suit with similar allegations was filed by Rick Donaldson of Granite City, also on July 16.
