How do you get a consumer protecting agency to do their job?
When presented a clear cut case of fraud, agency investigator looks instead for the way out of prosecuting. Looking the other way when he stated the was no doubt that the person's testimony was a lie, but couldn't do ANYTHING about it? This type of dismissal exposes a great many other consumers to an unlicensed crook. All this is contrary to the aggressive round up of unlicensed contractors, using ficticious names and other people's licenses? When will a gov't agency get a spine? How do lazy bureaucrats live with themselves? Okay, that sounds so hostile. Question remains if an investigator (cslb) won't give his findings to the consumer, without subpoena BUT only for a civil case, it immediately holds the consumer hostage to the mediation/arbitration scam. How does this help the consumer who was already presented evidence on a silver platter? The process is full of limitations for the consumer. The agency is no longer an advocate for the consumer when the value of damages was determined to be greater than the amount you can recover in the process. At that point, when the consumer is that damaged (per their own inspectors findings) the agency isn't interested. It forces you into the courts, civil and criminal.
