Nearly 80 contractors, including pool contractors, were charged with operating without a license in a sting conducted in California recently. Undercover agents posed as homeowners needing repairs or installations for their homes. In addition to being charged with operating without a license, some of the contractors may be charged with illegal advertising, as well as fined for charging excessive up-front fees for the contracted work. Offenders could be facing up to six months in jail and $5000 fine.
