There is no name in DPOR data base with this name.
Plus the contractor license number is wrong. Should be 10 digit number with no letter such as: 2705113817

Inspectors love sting operations.:thumbsup: Drop the dime. It can't hurt to have him checked.

I'm always proud to present my license. I've worked hard for it.

I called one Craigslist ad, gave him the first name, address, and phone number of the local license board investigator. I told him the office was getting a small remodel, so he had to get there before 5.

I called him a few days later around 7pm and he sounded very cautious. When I asked him for his last name, he hung up. :laughing:
