Guam - It's just one of the reasons consumers should beware when looking for contractors, as the case between the Guam Contractors License Board and Mario Fojas was back in court this morning before Judge Elizabeth Barrett Anderson. Fojas was reported by a consumer to the board for allegedly operating as an unlicensed business contractor about one year ago.

GCLB investigators have been working with the Attorney General's Office to prosecute Fojas. During today's hearing the court was informed that Fojas will now have to pay a $5,000 civil penalty, as well work with the board in order to obtain a license.

Meanwhile, residents are also urged to report any illegal contractors immediately to the board.
