SAN FRANCISCO — On March 10, 2021, The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office announced the filing of felony charges against Tommy Jue of San Francisco for grand theft; using a contractor’s license with intent to defraud; filing a false or forged instrument; forgery; and insurance fraud.
According to court records. Jue allegedly conducted business under the name “Tom Jue & Company” from 2015-2018, using several Contractors State License Board (CSLB) contractor’s license numbers that were not his own. The joint District Attorney and Contractors State License Board investigation focused on 15 jobsites in which Jue allegedly performed fire alarm service or installation. Jue also is alleged to have submitted signed forms to the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection (DBI), representing himself as a licensed contractor, which he was not.
“The act of using a contractor’s licensed number that is not one’s own is not only deceitful, it is against the law and puts consumers at risk, both a financial and personal safety risk,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “CSLB investigators work year-round with local district attorneys’ officers to identify and arrest those contracting without a license in order to keep Californians safe.”
