Firetech Services Co. AKA Icon Fire Protection Services of West Hills & Canoga Park, Ca. and John LoMonaco ripped us off. We are in Valencia California. They charged our credit card over $5,500.00. Most of this amount was without our authorization and without doing the work. The amount that was authorized we were over charged and work never completed. They have no signed agreements for the charges they made. Especially since they did not start or finish the work. They forced us to look for another company in a rush as they cancelled a final appointment ONE day before they were to come out (we have this in writing). We found an honorable company that came out the same day we called them and did the inspection for only $700.00 that they charged us over $2,500 for. In addition this honorable company quoted us in writing under $1,500.00 to complete the project! Had Firetech honored their WRITTEN promise and appeared they would have been able to get away with their over charges. However they left us no choice based on the fire department but to look elsewhere and they never refunded our money. We contacted the credit card company and they couldn't help us so they referred us to the credit card fraud department. In the meantime we contacted the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) on October 13th for some help and guidance and they have yet to even reply. I wonder why?
Thank you

Hey Bob,
Sorry to hear about your experience with Fire Tech Svcs. and John LoMonaco. It's ashame to hear this happen. I just wanted to let you know that the NFPA will not help you with this situation. The folks you want to talk to would be the CA State Contractor's Licensing board at
You have up to four years following the date of the incident to report the problem.
Another bit of help in your direction.....Our facility has been using a fire sprinkler company located in Sun Valley named D & D Mechanical. You may want to give them a try. They are a bit pricey but certainly worth the price. We have never had a problem with the quality of the work nor scheduling. I've dealt with 'low bid' fire sprinkler contractors and have only been found to be in the situation you were. Since we've been using D & D, we've not had to worry. In one instance, D & D was not able to help us but they guided us in the right direction. Their workers were neat and hard-working. Once again, their expensive but well worth it when it comes to life and property being in danger of fire.
Hope this helps.

You got big stones to talk b.s. about a man who just passed away! I want everyone to know that you are a liar! I John almost 20 years ago and I work in the same field and know personally he is no thief. If this B.S. was really true your card company would have done something. You are real jerk....get a life!

Fred you are a retard! The complaint was PRIOR to his passing. And passing does not make up for being a rip off. And the credit card company did eventually see our side and we won. So eat xxxx fred!
