Welcome to CSLB's Most Wanted

The Worst of the Worst - Avoid These Phony Contractors & Con Artists

In our ongoing effort to protect California consumers, CSLB has identified the worst unlicensed violators who are known to prey on vulnerable and unsuspecting homeowners who are involved in new home or home improvement projects. Complaints against the following unlicensed individuals have been lodged with CSLB, law enforcement agencies, and district attorneys around the state.

One man on the Most Wanted list, Maico Merdinand Dimla, is accused of conspiracy to cheat/defraud CSLB licensees and applicants for a CSLB license. In May 2013, Dimla's accomplice, Luis Flores, pled guilty to one felony charge.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of the people who appear in this section. If you see any of these people or have any information as to their whereabouts, please contact your local police or sheriff's department. After contacting local law enforcement, call CSLB in Northern California at (916) 255-2924 or in Southern California at (562) 345-7600.

All warrants must be verified with the law enforcement agency holding the warrant before an apprehension can be made.
