Eric C Faber, is a serial con artist with a 25+ year VERIFIABLE criminal history. He has spent time in jail for operating without a contractor license in the state of California.


His activities here in Idaho mirrored the exact same con he had been pulling for 20 years in California! Court cases on record with convictions connected to Eric Carl Faber use language like “Felony Burglary, Embezzlement and Fraud” to describe his activities dating as far back as 1999!

Regarding his construction contractor and design businesses, Mr. Faber’s typical con is to bid a job extremely low promising a short-term turn around (that he knows is impossible). Despite the fact that he was convicted of working as a contractor without a license in California, he does currently have an active contractor license in Idaho, though it appears that his company is not bonded as he claimed in emails related to a remodel project at 823 E Pine Ave in Coeur d’Alene.  his license and insurance had lapsed prior to starting the project resulting in his crew working on your property for many days while uninsured and his company not licensed or bonded. He also claims that he is a licensed designer, but this is a significant misrepresentation because he actually uses his wife Deborah Donnelly Faber’s design license in California. This is verified information.

His mode of operation is to have the client wire money into his account at the beginning of the project with a predetermined work scope. Then the work scope increases significantly. He then claims that the job is going to cost more than expected... and he needs more money. Clients typically cooperate and send more money. Soon after, little to no work gets done. Materials don’t get ordered, and he does not pay his crew for the work that did get done. They typically walk off the job. He blames the laborers or subcontractor(s) then proceeds to abandon the project all together claiming that he is entitled to keep the funds already paid by the client. He accounts for every penny and claims he has receipts but when pushed to show evidence, he never produces anything other than a bunch of emails that fain cooperation until the client abandons any hope of recovering a substantial portion of the funds due them. 

You can also check his reviews out on the Better Business Bureau website.
