Unlicensed Contractor Gets Caught

Share Button

 

The CSLB runs these sting operations from time to time where they bust people who are flagrantly advertising construction services without a license.

In some way I feel bad because these guys are just trying to work. But I lose that sympathy when they ask for 3/4 of the money up front. Either way it’s never smart to risk practicing without a license.

If you liked this the CSLB has ton of videos where they perform sting operations as well as other less exciting stuff.
