"Tom, I don't know. I told you to call Guardian Savings Bank," he told FOX 19 Consumer Reporter Tom Sussi.
Since then - FOX 19 uncovered more information, and gave Moeves another chance to explain.
Here's what we know:
Guardian Savings Bank is with-holding draws on its construction loan because - we're told - Chris Moeves isn't paying his bills.
Over the past several months - the bank gave Moeves $80,000. Henry Contractors was supposed to get 12-thousand. Brick layer Neil Schmidt 10-thousand and Cox Drywall 8-thousand. None of them were paid.
On top of that - Moeves filed a bogus affidavit with the bank - stating Henry Contractors was paid.
Days after that interview - Moeves met with FOX 19 at his lawyer's office - and admitted that he's hurting financially and used some of the construction money for other bills. He also admitted that he filed a phony affidavit.
"There's certain things that happened that I wish I would have done a different way," said Moeves." But I didn't."
Smack in the middle of this mess: The family building the home. Two businesses have filed liens on the house, which means - in the end - the owner is responsible to pay all outstanding bills. Construction on the house started nearly a year ago!
