The danger if you do that is it could possibly be turned in to the police for fraud/theft of services. You might call your credit card company and see if they offer any dispute resolution process. You may have certain options available to you under the Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act. If the work done falls under that Act or under the Door-to-Door Sales Act, your contract has to contain certain provisions. It is not unusual for contractors to not comply with those provisions and it may give you a nifty "out" of the contract and option to demand all of your money back. Take the contract to an attorney familiar with the Act and see what remedies you have.
I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
