PROOF...what do you say to this Eric & Debra?

AUTHOR: Professional - (USA)



Check out this website and document. Eric and Debra Faber appear on pages 24 & 25.


These are the minutes from a Contractor's License Board meeting. 


Very enlightening. 


It should also be noted that they no longer work under this same company name.


They are now Everywhere Westside LLC.

Nice try deadbeat

AUTHOR: Professional - (USA)

Without disclosing my identity, let me say that I was hired as a contractor by this fraud to provide a service for an event. He used to own part of the Spitfire Grill in Santa Monica. As far as I know, Eric Faber is still part owner of the restaurant.

The service was provided. The event went well.

But when it was time to pay, he became belligerent, harassing and verbally abusive in response.

After a lot of back and forth, I took this deadbeat, Eric Faber to court and won.

A sherrif showed up to the restaurant with the court's decision and he was forced to open the safe and hand over the cash on-the-spot, per the court's decision based on facts.

He is the most despicable human being on the planet.

He spent more energy trying to weasel out of paying and he should have just paid it from the start rather than have to ay accumulated penallities and fees. But, he's not that bright, so it's not surprising.

Do not do business with this individual. And if he is still affiliated with the Spitfire Grill in Santa Monica, do not patronize that place.

Eric Faber/The westside company, the scammer of Sta. Monica

AUTHOR: a consumer from Santa Monica - ()

Before you do business with this thief, Eric Faber or The Westside Co., go online and run a criminal background check on him. He has half of dozen of lawsuits from house owners and contractors. He is the scammer of Santa Monica!

His " office address" is a mailboxes store. He doesn't have address, after he ripped you off and ran away with your money, you can't find him, there is no address on him neither his wife. You can't sue him becuase you can't find him. The best way is stay away from this thief. He is not a licensed contractor, he is doing illegal construction or remodeling, please be aware of The Westside Company

I'm contacting the D.A. office to check on this guy and please do so as well, we need to prevent this thief to keep ripping off more consumers.

100% Con-Artists

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

Eric and Debra Faber are pure con-artists in every sense of the word.  Do not listen to the previous rebuttal.  They have ripped off both contractors and clients alike, including me.  What they will typically do on a home remodeling project is find an unsuspecting general contracting business, and offer them a lucrative remodel job.  Then as they collect payments from the homeowner/customer, they will begin to stiff the contractor until the contractor eventually abandons the job. 

Following that, they will turn to the homeowner and blame the contractor for walking off the job, and then skip off with tens of thousands of dollars for work that was never performed.  If you are actually considering hiring these people, please, go online first and invest $30 to run a criminal background check on Eric Faber.  If that doesn't scare you away, I don't know what will.

It is true


I checked out Eric Faber before I hired him and he just spent time in jail for "receiving stolen property" and unlicensed contractor charges. He has quite the checkered past.  DO NOT HIRE HIM!!  BEWARE!!

Lies, Lies, Lies

AUTHOR: Debra - ()

I am shocked that the Ripoff Report does not require proof of what is being said. There are 2 reports neither of them contain a shred of truth. One of the people that wrote the report worked for us, Rick Gutierez, "Prestige Construction". 

We had to part ways because he constantly messed up on the job and did not do work that was up to our standards. The other reason we had to part ways was becuase he let his personal life become an issue. Cheating and lying. 

Rick does not have a sucessful business because he does poor work.

He is a bitter man who has gone out of his way to try and hurt our reputaion. We have a lawyer involved and if this continues we will file a lawsuit for slander and sue him. 

Please require more when you let someone file a false report. It is amazing that anyone can say anything and get away with it.
