ATTENTION HOA CUSTOMERS OF THE COMPANY FORMERLY KNOWN AS WANKE INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL RESIDENTIAL, YOUR SB 326 BALCONY INSPECTION REPORT MAY BE FRAUDULENT!

A redacted copy of the report we received from our anonymous source.
Deck Inspectors report signed by a Raffi Abkarian, civil engineer, with an incorrect license number.

Our investigation proceeded to look up the license number listed on the report. Needless to say it does not belong to Mr Abkarian. A search by name found Mr Abkarian with a license number of 36027. The license status is listed as clear with an expiration date of June 30th 2022 and it says license type is civil engineer.

According to this license listing Mr Abkarian is a civil engineer.

According to the balcony bill SB 316 only a licensed structural engineer or an architect may sign the report for a common interest development deck inspection. Being that Mr Abkarian is “only” a Civil Engineer”, he isn’t eligible from our understanding of the balcony bill to be eligible to sign off on a report of inspection. Interestingly one source told us that they never saw Mr Abkarian on site inspecting decks at the HOA where they live.

I filed a complaint with the board of engineers against Raffi Abkarian and another one with the contractors state license board against DM. I will not allow grifters to grift in my industry without being called to account. 
I received this good news on Friday February 18, 2022 that an investigation is being opened.

From our understanding and speaking with an attorney this would present a major problem for associations who have a report from Deck Inspectors Inc signed by Mr Abkarian that they’ve paid for. It is our belief that the report is invalid and possibly fraudulent due to being signed, apparently willingly, by Mr Abkarian. I have reached out several times to Mr Abkarian but have not reached him.

Furthermore customers of D I Inc should know that the owner of this company also owns the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential. Our sources have told us the same similar story; how the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential “recommends” deck inspector for deck inspection work or vice versa without revealing the conflict of interest between the two companies. DM cannot act as an independent consultant and pretend that he doesn’t know SK except as a professional acquaintance.

As seen on deck inspectors stationary it clearly states that Deck Inspector Inc. approved the work of WICR. Dave can you possibly get any more unethical?

There are substantial conflicts of interest, possibly fraud and certainly a matter of ethical character that exists here. I have been told by my sources that deck inspectors seems to call out small items and demand major repairs, often in the thousands of dollars that the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential does the work for. So DM is double dipping from your HOA masquerading as a deck inspector/consultant while his construction and waterproofing company do unnecessary work.

I encourage HOAs who feel that they may have been victimized to contact their counsel at law immediately, and to contact me, Bill Leys at bill@deckexpert.com So that I can put all HOAs together for a discussion about a possible class action lawsuit. Contact your local district attorney’s office if you have a contract with the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential file a complaint with the CSLB, contact the department of consumer affairs.

If you want to do your own research I suggest that you start at the California Secretary of State website and look up the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential and you will see that David Mazor is the owner of both companies. His wife is the agent for service of process.

A screenshot captured from deck inspectors website clearly shows them recommending WICR.

DeckExpert.com recommends that consumers and HOAs stay away from the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential.
