Update, an email sent to wicr resulted in the photographs removal from their blog. 

I was browsing WICR Inc’s website/blog today and came upon a blog post about plywood vs OSB substrate. “Written” by Chris Swanson, he discusses why OSB isn’t a suitable substrate and why plywood is…well and good.

However, as I scrolled through to the end, I noticed a photograph that was very familiar to me since I took it on January 18th of 2008.

As seen at WICR’s website/blog, this is an image that I took in 2008.

Jeez, you’d think a company that’s been around as long as they have might have a few pictures of their own…but apparently not and stealing pics without giving attribution is low, but that’s what WICR is about, being snakes in the grass. The head snake is David Mazor aka David Krubinski, second snake in command is Sean Krubinski, the “protege/progeny” of Mazor. Tool in Chief is Fred Wanke, who does what he’s told and shuts the fuck up when he’s told too. Fred is trotted out as the figurehead of WICR when necessary.

Well, looked at another way, WICR must secretly admire our work, stealing is a form of flattery after all.

We’re receiving pics of David Krubinski at his home at 1146 La Canada Blvd in La Canada, with WICR employees working on the property.

WICR employees in front of Irina & Davey Mazor’s house with banner thanking them for the pool work they did…

Krubinski, aka Davey Mazor, denies he owns WICR, and so does his attorney/wife Irina Mazor.

Sources tell us he has WICR employees work on his house and pays them under the table with funds from his company’s checking account under ICR Services.

These pics show that WICR employees are clearly on his and Irina’s property working.

An attempt to collect on a  judgement against a former employee of WICR’s ended poorly for them recently.

The former employee was sued by WICR for allegedly stealing WICR’s customer list and working with WICR clients even after a stipulated agreement. Keck declared bankruptcy and WICR pursued their judgement through the bankruptcy, attempting to keep their judgement from being thrown into the trash with the other debts accumulated.

After years of back and forth, spending thousands of dollars and untold time on writing objections and filings, the case closed with WICR collecting $7,764.18 from the bankruptcy proceedings. payout

A screen shot shows the amounts paid out to WICR and their attorney, Irina Mazor, David Mazor/Krubinski’s wife. WICR got money, Irina got zilch. Please show the proper respect and remorse when you see Dave, his hopes and dreams are shattered…LOL. It appears that Irina didn’t bother filing for any claims, because she knew she’d get shit anyway.

November 4th 2015 marks an anniversary that must be noted; that date will mark the second year that has passed since David Krubinski guaranteed personally that he would sue me into bankruptcy if I defamed, libeled, slandered he or his companies etc. So far no suit…which could change at any moment of course…read why below.

However, as we’ve always stated right along, if something we’ve published you believe (Dave) is erroneous, please provide us with the correct information so we can update our article accordingly.

We’ve uncovered a lot here at WICRLeaks and continue to investigate leads that have come in. While it seems quiet here on the blog, behind the scenes we are busy. Please bear with us as we continue our work. As always, we are always welcoming new leads and so I encourage current employees and ex-employees to come forward with information.

So going back in time to Nov 2013, here’s a couple screen shots of some promises Krubinski made in November 2013…

Krubinski promises he'll sue if I libel/slander/defame him...so far no suit, which means I must be telling the truth?

Krubinski promises he’ll sue if I libel/slander/defame him…so far no suit, which means I must be telling the truth?

Physical threat or Just a Saying?

Here Krubinski appears agitated,and even perhaps threatening? Is a “significant fall from my high chair” just a metaphor or does it insinuate something more sinister? Tell us what you think in the comments!

Promises promises

I guess we have our facts straight…Cause I’m still standing despite numerous empty threats like this one. Of course, if anything were to happen to me, guess who might get looked at closely??? I mean one could take from the “result in a significant fall from your high chair” to mean physical harm…

WHY AREN’T WE BEING SUED WHEN KRUBINSKI SPENDS TIME AND MONEY CHASING EX-EMPLOYEES?

Right now WICR, Krubinski and Fred Wanke’s company, is suing an ex employee to bar him from listing them as creditors as part of a personal bankruptcy. They want to try to continue to collect a settlement/award they won in a suit over customer records. They are spending a lot of time and certainly money on this, and in discussions I’ve had with attorneys familiar with cases like this, say the likelihood of collecting a fraction of the award is small and will take years. So is Krubinski wont to seemingly throw good money after bad to satisfy an ego problem? Maybe…

Krubinski has threatened/promised to sue if I ever libeled him…so why hasn’t he many friends and interested parties have asked. I think the simple answer is, he can’t. Because there’s greater risk in exposing himself to further scrutiny and damage as a result. In a suit Krubinski filed and lost some years ago, their was a profound statement made which we use here as a motto…”Truth is a complete defense against liability for defamation, regardless of bad faith or malicious purpose.” I’ll bet Krubinski hates that and stays up at night and silently seethes…which means we’re doing our job.

DID YOU KNOW LA AND ORANGE COUNTY IS ONE OF THE MOST RENOWNED AREAS FOR WAGE THEFT? DON’T BE A VICTIM, IF YOU WORKED FOR A LICENSED CONTRACTOR, YOU CAN MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST THEIR BOND FOR YOUR WAGES. 

 

Good news for any current or ex-employees of WICR or any other contractor who believes they had wages stolen from them!

If you

  • had overtime work you performed that was called driving time,
  • didn’t get a lunch or rest break
  • had a time card altered after submitting it
  • was paid under the table as an undocumented worker
  • had money deducted for someone else’s injuries who was working under your supervision
  • weren’t allowed to clock in at the office/warehouse when picking up materials but had to wait until you got to the job
  • if you reported for work, but didn’t work for more than 3 hours and was only paid for the hours worked, you may have a claim that you can make with the bond company. The law requires employers pay for a minimum of three hours even of you worked less than that.

YOU MAY HAVE A CLAIM AND YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RECOVER YOUR MONEY EASILY AND FOR FREE!

From CSLB’s website-

A contractor has an obligation not to commit any violation of contractor license law that is grounds for disciplinary action against the license. If the contractor does not comply with the conditions of the bond, a claim can be filed with the surety company.

Claims against a surety company may be filed by ….employees damaged by the contractor’s failure to pay wages…

If you worked for WICR and  believe that you may have a claim for wages, you can file a claim by contacting the bond carrier for WICR. There is no time limit to file a claim for wages.

If you worked for WICR between 12/22/1997 and 3/2/2009 please contact this bond company. They will send you the forms necessary to file your claim for wages.

Linked below are copies of time cards in pdf format of alleged undocumented workers hired by WICR that was provided by Jose Ortiz.

Ortiz, a former WICR employee, alleges that WICR routinely hired undocumented workers and paid them through their “foreman” who received a check made out in the foreman’s name from WICR’s general business account  without any withholding or employee payroll taxes.

The foreman would then cash the check and pay out the undocumented workers in cash. Ortiz says his checks had taxes withheld, but the undocumented workers had no taxes withheld.

If this is true, WICR could face substantial penalties and the person(s) responsible could face substantial fines and or time in jail according to the IRS website.

Review these documents and come to your own conclusions about the payroll and timecards. Is WICR circumventing the IRS, ICE and state of California’s laws? Tell us what you think in the comments.
