The number of complaints from homeowners filed against American Shingle and Siding, Inc. continues to grow, reports the Better Business Bureau. So far, the agency has logged nearly 600 complaints since the Atlanta-based company shut down operations two weeks ago, leaving consumers across 10 states without new roofs.

The company's problems don't stop there. Authorities in Tennessee and Georgia, the Secret Service and several attorneys general are investigating. Rick Harlow, special agent in charge for the Secret Service's Memphis field office, told Consumer Ally that his agency is working with Memphis Police to determine if the company violated any federal laws or if the case is a local or civil matter.
