Lee Moser may have used our money to buy a NYRising house

Courtesy of Newsday November 15, 2015
Lee Moser of Capstone Remodeling, of Nesconset, paid $175,000 for a West Islip property with a pre-storm value of $650,000. He intends to tear it down and rebuild an elevated house for sale.

“It’s right where I valued it,” he said. “The deals in Suffolk were good . . . the way I assessed them as a contractor is I need to make $100,000 on a house — I need to make money.”

Wow I had Lee do some work for me about 3 years ago. Refinish a wood floor and counter tops. He approached me a little over a year ago with an investment into the NY Rising. He had a book which unfortunately I just threw away. In the book it had every property available for auction with an analysis of how much I could bid up to how much it would cost for him to repair and the potential profit on the resale. He was talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair the homes. I did not invest because the only thing that was certain were his profits. I looked up a couple of the homes that he said would go for x dollars and the comps weren’t close. I suspect there may be many more people he has scammed. He did a full presentation in his office for me with power point presentation. He said there were other investors. Good Luck to all of you. I’ve had my experience with the Lee Moser’s of the world and got ripped off for 60k. In my case the contractor filed for bankruptcy and all of the sub contractors that he didn’t pay filed liens against my home. I didn’t have to pay them because I had the cancelled checks but it still cost me 15k in legal fees. Since he was a licensed contractor you may be able to file a complaint with the Dept of consumer affairs they have a fund for people who get scammed.

Blair Rocchio, Lee Moser and Gandolfo Contracting

According to a homeowner in Massapequa who contacted me, Blair Rocchio signed his job in summer 2015 and took a 48K deposit at which time Lee Moser entered the picture. . Due to issues with his house status, homeowners was delayed in getting permits until late  2016. At this point Lee Moser told homeowner he merged with Gandolfo Contracting and was going to use Gandolfo’s license number.  Homeowner told me that he was later was informed in letter from Gandolfo that Lee actually was illegally using their name and license without approval. When homeowner questioned Lee, there was no response and essentially homeowner is out the door 48K, 2 years later with no work even started.

Finally, progress with the state

Well after what seems like forever, the Nassau county DA picked this up and I am expecting the Suffolk country DAs to pick up soon.
From what I have been told by Suffolk county, Lee’s license will be pulled in Suffolk on account of not paying his Suffolk county fine, nor repaying me or the other Suffolk victim.

Looks like we have some forward movement and that both county and state will be investigating him. For good measure I called FBI an did a report there as well as this falls under their Jurisdiction as well.

So what now. I am thinking let’s continue to push to expedite Lee to his future home, servicing his new boyfried Bubba, at Fishkill Correctional Facility. And maybe we will even get some money out of him too.bubba

I have put in call to Debra Siegler, Paralegal at Bureau of Consumer Frauds and Protection in Hauppauge 516-231-2401  to follow up on with the Attorney Generals office today, and will be  contacting the Suffolk County ADA Complaint evaluation specialist- Jean Paprocky 631-853-5602 tomorrow.

Assuming Congressman Peter King (516) 541-4225 is still around I will be contacting their office as well to get him to move Schneiderman.

I did not put these numbers here for my own benefit. I already have them. feel free to call em yourself and harass them. Theoretically they work for us.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil!

Capstone suspended in Nassau Suffolk still in process

Nassau county pulled Capstone’s license. It does seem that Blair Rocchio is now using another company to conduct the same  practices as before. AnB Constuction I have seen. Be aware.

Capstone has  several complaints in Suffolk so it may be only a matter of time before something is done in Suffolk. Looks like Lee Moser may be going to the big house as he is yet to payback those in Nassau.
