Work Description: $58k home addition - lost $45,000 to these shysters.Comments: SCAM ALERT - fake reviews
1. Do not pre-pay ANY construction company. According to CA law, payment is only allowed AFTER delivery of materials or installation. Despite the law, pre-paying ANY contractor just invites disaster. I learned this the hard way.
2. SUSPENDED CONTRACTORS LICENSE due to lack of workers comp https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/LicenseDetail.aspx?LicNum=361153
3. They sent unlicensed electrician, plumber, floor installers, tile installers. I don't think a single sub contractor was properly licensed.
4. HANKS is actually "YL Consultants Inc" dba Hank's Construction which is owned by Yaniv Lankry. This guy is a total shyster, as is the entire company.
5. Yaniv Lankry also owns Doggers Incoporated which had it's license REVOKED: https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/LicenseDetail.aspx?LicNum=595163
6. REVOKED license at Doggers because they are shysters: https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/CompletedPDF/Accusations/N2015-130/N2015-130-20161103-Accusation.pdf
7. Hank Sonksen had his license since 1978, but is now retired and does not oversee the projects, which is a misdemeanor. He simply "rents" his license to YL Consultants, this is referred to as "RMO Renting" in the business.
8. Jason Gettler (Jason Steven Gettler) is a registered sales person for Hanks/YL and was involved in REVOKED "Doggers" https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/HisDetail.aspx?HISLicNum=94581&HISLmfPre=SP
9. Michael Cabrera (Michael A Cabrera) was my sales person at Hanks. He illegally collected pre-payments for materials not delivered and work not performed. Michael Cabrera is fully aware of and helps to perpetuate the sham that is Hanks/YL.
Also using private PO BOX as address on his CSLB registration
"Probationary registration issued in lieu of denial" - presumably due to a previous criminal conviction - I guess time in the clink didn't help this crook.
10. Johnny Otega is another employee who claims to be an office manager, he is not listed on the CSLB website.
11. Their address is private PO Box at "Boxes and More" in Hollywood.
8491 W SUNSET BLVD #410 (private PO box)

12. Their actual offices are at
7100 HAYVENHURST AVENUE
Penthouse A2 (and A1 on other businesses)
