How did these 2 guys get away with being fake engineers for so long without getting caught?

Of course, they defrauded so many people, but how were they able to get away with it?

Every engineer I know is incredibly professional and guards their education, experience and reputation with their life.

No agency checked on them?

I was 'joking' with a coworker at +Netfloor USA​ that if their clients had raised floors, at least they could take that with them before the wrecking ball crashes down!

'joking' but it's not really funny.. not really. Will definitely cause a lot of trouble for many people.


Hundreds of buildings from houses to strip malls could face the wrecking ball after California authorities unraveled a decade-long scam involving a pair of phony building engineers, officials told FoxNews.com.

"They said “the low floor-to-ceiling height, lack of raised access floor has made the building undesirable for tenants and to be at the lower end of the office market in its current condition”.

Ok, so I know there are obviously more factors than this, but when you have low profile access floors that are less than 50mm/2" high, the floor to ceiling height and lack of raised access floor argument sort of loses a bit of impact, perhaps?

If you have technology, you have to deal with wires. And sooner or later, those wires entangle with each other to form a kudzu-like mess where they become indistinguishable in a sea of entanglement.

Netfloor USA Access Flooring is honored to have been mentioned in Ylan Mui's article in the +Washington Post about alternative ways of compensating employees in addition to salaries, raises and bonuses. It's a pretty exciting topic that has been getting a lot of attention lately.

There seems to be a lot of controversy over this, if the article's comments are any indication of the general sentiment out there in the real world where real people are trying to make a living!

+Netfloor USA  is happy to be a small, growing manufacturing and tech firm that cares about our customers AND our employees!

There're no "C" level executives here, and some of the team members' salaries rival or surpass that of mine

#accessfloor   #economy   #executivecompensation   #cablemanagement   #architecture   

And yes, that's me (+Ryan Hulland ) in the photo. I told them to take a picture of something better looking, but, well, you know how journalists and photogs are ;) j/k
For many American workers, wages may be stagnant but benefits are booming.

I'm proud to have worked for MonMan for so long (over a decade). It's unusual to find a company so dedicated to quality, customer support and integrity, and when you find it, you do everything you can to stay there and be a part of its growth.

I am a problem solver, and specialize in HVAC, Electrical and IT systems, especially in the Mission Critical, Data Center, Industrial and Healthcare industries.

I am always looking for ways to "get the pieces to fit" in a better, faster, more efficient way, and I bring that mindset to my customers.

The best part of my job is seeing that smile on a customer's face when they realize that, yes, there still are some great companies out there that believe in fantastic customer service and a useful product or service at a price that makes sense.

Specialties
Business Development, Market Entry, Data Center Cooling, Data Center Power, Systems Monitoring, Indoor Air Quality, Systems Integration.

Data Centers
I've been around long enough to have seen the inside of some great legacy data centers, but am still excited to be at the forefront of developing technologies. I'm a firm believer in studying the past; learning from missteps and successes alike. I've seen what works and what doesn't when it comes to data center cooling and power, and I enjoy mixing that with the next generation of design, equipment and operations to provide our clients with a fantastic experience.

Netfloor USA
Director of Business Development. I'm very excited to be able to help develop this brand into the leader of low-profile, cable management access floor. This position is fun, challenging and very rewarding professionally and emotionally.

Charitable Works
Zidisha: Zidisha is an organization that allows you to make micro-loans to small businesses in third world countries. Most of my work has been providing capital to entrepreneurs in Africa. Their business goals could be anything from starting a taxi service to growing their small clothing shop.

I am a firm believer in the "teach a man (or woman) to fish" mindset, and feel that providing aid to these third world entrepreneurs to start up and grow their small businesses is a great way to help create long term growth opportunities for the people who need it most.

It's not about the money or any potential interest you might earn when you get paid back. It's about helping someone in need. It's about helping them build a business and getting real world business experience so they can be self-supporting. It not only helps them and their families, it ends up helping their countries as well.

Education
  • University of North Carolina at Charlotte
    Growth and Developmental Economics, 2002 - 2006
    I majored in economics (yes, I know you think it's boring!) because it fascinates me how a system (an economy, a data center, an organization, etc.) can have so many moving parts, so many variables, and despite how smart we would like to think we are, we are still only scratching the surface of how the world works. I specialized in Growth and Developmental econ; basically, "How can we make an economy, an organization, a community grow?" (Short answer: education!) I picked up some great theory along the way, but I still consider it preparation for the 'real world' where your learning (hopefully) continues!
