Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett's office has charged the owners of an Allentown-area fuel oil company with overbilling customers, including allegations of forging invoices and selling thousands of gallons of oil that didn't exist.

Brothers Daniel Reichenbach Jr., 42, and William Reichenbach, 45, face one count of theft, deceptive business practices, forgery and other charges in the case. John J. Waldron, attorney for William Reichenbach, told Consumer Ally they were looking to work with the prosecutors to come to a mutual understanding and "see if we can work things out."

The investigation was sparked after an employee of Reichenbach Oil Co. reported suspicions over the company's billing practices to the AG's Bureau of Consumer Protection.
