Construction Companies Accused of Hiring Fake Building Inspectors

Authorities in New York City allege that two construction companies paid laymen, including some allegedly hired from Craigslist, to ‘inspect’ buildings and issue approvals. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office says two companies avoided hiring certified inspectors at higher prices and opted to pay hairdressers, busboys, and others, to complete the required forms. A report on NBCNewYork.com explains the companies allegedly gave the posers the name of a deceased city inspector so they could sign off on permits. NBCNewYork.com also reports that the alleged fraud led to inspections of some 400 sites where more than 80 violations were found.
