WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) The state attorney general says a suburban New York heating oil company failed to deliver $80,000 in fuel in services after taking customers' pre-payments.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced Tuesday a lawsuit against the Peekskill-based Nu Way oil company and its father-and-son managers.

A call to Nu Way was answered by a man who said he would try to find someone to respond.

The attorney general said Nu Way delivered as little as 15 gallons of heating oil last winter to customers who had pre-paid for much more.

He also said the company performed only part of the burner-service work it was paid for.

And he said it was unlicensed.

The attorney general said more than 70 complaints have been filed against Nu Way and 28 customers have brought lawsuits.
