CSLB's Enforcement Efforts to be Showcased on National Television
MSNBC documentary to present up-close look at fight against unlicensed contractors
SACRAMENTO — The California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is considered to be one of the top regulatory agencies in the nation. Next week, the CSLB's efforts to combat unlicensed activity will be highlighted in a one-hour documentary that will air on MSNBC Cable.
Over a three-month period earlier this year, NBC production crews went undercover with CSLB's Statewide Investigative Fraud Team (SWIFT) to gain a "from-the-trenches" view of SWIFT's efforts to battle unlicensed contractors. The show will also reveal the steps involved in conducting undercover sting operations, and how consumers don't realize the risks they take when they hire an unlicensed contractor for home improvement work.
"We're pleased that the exemplary work of our Enforcement Division will be seen by a national audience," said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. "We also hope that consumers around the country who see the show will learn to better protect themselves from becoming a victim."
The show, titled "MSNBC Undercover: Home Wreckers," will air on Wednesday, October 24, 2007, at 8 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time. The show will repeat at 11p.m.
An excerpt of the show will air on Wednesday morning on the "Today" show, beginning at 7a.m. on the NBC Television Network.
