A-1 TOWING SERVICE CHARGES MILLAGE THEY REALY DONT TRAVEL. IF YOU HAVE ONE OF THE FOLLING ROAD SIDE POLICIES AND HAVE BEEN TOWED BY A-1 YOU PROBABLY HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF.

CROSS COUNTRY/GEICO/AMERICAN TRAVEL/COACH NET/AUTO KNIGHT/AUTO HELP LINE/MOTORCYCLE TOUR SERVICE. WITH THEESE PLANS THERE IS AN ENROUTE MILLAGE CHARGE, SOME ALLOW A FEW MILES BEFORE CHARGING AND SOME CHARGE RIGHT FROM THE GET GO.

THE WAY THEY OVER CHARGE IS - IF I GET CALLED FROM MY HOME TO TOW YOUR CAR AND YOUR ONLY TWO BLOCKS FROM MY HOUSE I HAVE TO CHARGE YOU EIGHT MILES BECAUSE I LIVE EIGHT MILES FROM THE TOW YARD. IF YOUR AT I-5 AND 38TH STREET AND I HAPPEN TO BE AT THE TACOMA MALL THE COMPANY SAYS I MUST CHARGE YOU FOR ELEVEN MILES BECAUSE YOU ARE ELEVEN MILES FROM THERE TOW YARD.

IF YOUR CAR IS IMPOUNDED BY THE PIERCE COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPT. OR THE WASHINGTON STATE PATROL THEESE FRAUDULANT CHARGES ALSO APPLY.

I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH SEVERAL OF THE PROVIDERS AND THEY ARE INVESTIGATING. NOW I NEED TO GET IN TOUCH WITH LAW INFORCEMENT AGENCIES LISTED AND LET THEM KNOW ABOUT THIS ALSO. MAYBE I SHOULD MENTION THE TURN OVER AA-1 HAS WITH EMPLOYEES - COULD THIS BE BECAUSE WHEN PAY DAY COMES THEY DONT PAY THEIR PEOPLE - OR COULD IT BE THEY WITHHOLD TAXES AND DONT PAY THEM ??? THIS LAST STATEMENT IS NOT FACT BUT I WORKED FOR THIS COMPANY A SHORT TIME AND NEVER FILLED OUT TAX PAPPER WORK SO NOW SHOULD I MENTION THAT THE I.R.S. IS ALSO GOING TO INVESTAGATE AS WELL AS THE STATE OF WASHINGTON DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND INUSTRIES.
