James Howell of Doubleclickittofixit is a criminal, a thief and a genuine piece of garbage, and I am going to tell you why.

About a year and half ago, James started using my company name without permission. He also used the names of other companies without permission. He would make outrageous and false claims - such as "we fix all the laptops that they don't fix right".

Absolute nonsense. He was stealing from my company by using my company name without permission and then lying to try and draw new customers. When I told him to stop, he became very confrontational. Another shop owner called him, and said that James had "the mentality of a 10 year old".

But it didn't stop there. James not only continued to hijack my paid ads, he started to post false and defamatory blogs on his site. James is an immature kid from Georgia. A shop in Florida warned me about him years ago, calling him the "Tunnel Hill Scammer". [continued below]....
..... In fact, James was permanently banned from doing business on Ebay! He tried to sign up again, but Ebay caught up to him and terminated his new account. He recently signed up for Ebay again - only to have his latest account closed. He has absolutely no ethics whatsoever, and you will see why later. Keep reading this is only the beginning.

James became so obsessed with me that he would routinely email me, posing as a customer. He would often misspell the same words (yea, the kid isn't very bright) - so it would be easy to tell it was him. That along with a quick IP trace and I knew right away it was none other than James Howell.

James stole documentation from my company, and then posted him on his website. Like a home-grown Wikileaks crusader. After I confronted him about this matter, he gave me some nonsense excuse, blaming it on a "guy he ran into on the street". Not sure how that's possible when he's in a different state.

But I'm not the only person that James has stolen from. In fact, he stole checks from Tom White - who owned a computer repair shop in Dunlap, TN. Tom was facing financial struggles of his own, when James gave him some sob story about a tornado (which is his excuse for everything). James broke a federal law at this time, by illegally recording a phone conversation between Tom and I (and yes, I have evidence. James admitted to this in an email, and I am pressing charges against James).
So in the short time that James took advantage of Tom's kindness, he violated Federal laws and stole checks from Tom.

James will scam anyone to get ahead. He will say or do ANYTHING to make a buck. He's 100% trash. Do yourself a favor. Take your laptop somewhere else to be repaired - anywhere else. But whatever you do - do NOT send it to James Howell of Doubleclickittofixit.com !! Oh, by the way, James is going under many other names - so beware. He spams craigslist and backpage as well - so be careful.

So here is a quick summary of why you should NEVER send your laptop to James Christopher Howell:

We will stick to the facts about Doubleclickittofixit.

1) Doubleclickittofixit.com has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau

2) James Howell, the owner of Doubleclickittofixit was permanently banned from Ebay.
James' email address is james.c.howell@gmail.com

3) James Howell has stolen documents from competitors by means of deception - and

then tried to blame it on a third, non-existent party. This is verifiable in email trails.

4) James Howell frequently hijacks competitor's ads and listings. He write phony reviews,

posting as a customer. He often will then link the unsuspecting reader to his website.
He was banned from dozens of internet sites for "crass commercialism" - a form of spam.

5) James Howell has used competitor's names and trademarks without permission, and refused to stop after being asked to do so. This is verifiable in email trails.

6) James Howell was warned several months ago to stop prior to the posting of this blog.

James used inferior equipment. He is unskilled. He is unintelligent. He can't actually fix anything. He just heats motherboards and crosses his fingers. He has no working knowledge of digital electronics. He has had no formal training in motherboard repair. Do yourself a favor - steer clear of Doubleclickittofixit.com

BTW: James is going under many other names, such as:

HPreflow.com
dv9000reflow.com
dv6000reflow.com

and others.


James Howell of Doubleclickittofixit.com stole from me, other shop owners, hijacked our ads and broken many laws in the process. Do not do business with him, and do not let him fool you. He is a very convincing liar.

Enough already! Go to court and settle it.

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

Shees!  You guys must have a lot of free time by the looks of all the spamming on the internet by BOTH OF YOU.

Now, about some of the comments:

1) James Christopher Howell's "business" has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Precision Division has NO rating.  The BBB reports that Precision Division may be closed and has an alert about them.  You can check it here:  http://www.bbb.org/west-florida/business-reviews/computers-service-and-repair/precision-division-advanced-computer-repair-in-palm-harbor-fl-90087864

2) James Howell was PERMANENTLY banned from Ebay for ripping off customers.

I seem to remember Mr. Mannarino having some issues with Ebay.  In fact, he posted a report here.  He also posted multiple reports about Yelp.

5) James Howell STOLE documentation from Precision Division and posted it publicly online.
Source: Precision Division


Let me guess.  This stolen documentation wasn't the Precision Division POLICIES document was it?  I've read that piece of work.  Gonna sue customers for $14,000 and cancel the warranty if they post anything on-line that cast PD in a bad light?  I can post the reference from the policies page.  Repairs can be delayed indefinitely.  Anyone who initiates a charge back for any reason will be charged a fee.  There are other sections of this "policies" page that are equally appalling.  Let me know if you wish me to elaborate.

Oh.  I checked with the Florida Division of Corporations and can't find any business registered as Precision Division or Advanced Computer Repair.  Also can't fine Mr. Mannarino as a registered agent for any business.  Additionally, his website does not give a name of the business or address of the business.  You can check yourself at http://www.sunbiz.org/search.html

You guys need to stop the internet war and go to court.  The fact that neither of you has filed a lawsuit yet speaks volumes.  A legitimate business would have filed a lawsuit by now to put a stop to this juvenile nonsense.

P.S.  I don't know either of you.

James Howell , creepy stalker

AUTHOR: asdfghjk - (United States of America)

James Howell is a creepy stalker who is OBSESSED with Precision Division and the company's owner. James has more complaints against his company than he can shake a stick at. He was known in Georgia as the "Tunnel Hill Scammer". James Howell was permanently banned from Ebay. But don't take my word for it. Call Ebay and ask them. They'll tell you.

Still think I'm making this up? Give Tom White a call: 423 - 394 - 1467. Tom owned a computer repair shop in Dunlap, Tennessee. James gave Tom some sob story about how a tornado chased him across the country. Tom agreed to let James Howell use some space inside his shop. And do you know how he thanks him? He steals checks from Tom! Ask him yourself. It's the truth.

Ask James about how he ripped off Ed Bromme. Here's the ACTUAL complaint filed by Ed Bromme:

James Howellof Double Click it or Fix it PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS JERK. I contacted him on July 19th of this year for some work on some game systems. All sounded good, so three days later I shipped him six. He stated no more than five days working time. Three weeks later my nightmare started with him. I can understand running behind. But I shipped more boards to him.  All in all I shipped like around twenty, five or six thousand dollars worth of income to me. Now trying to give short of long. One month after
my first shipment I get seven boards back not even touched.

I call, text, E-mail no reply for him. Now I paid what was charged $350 and it was like eight five bucks over, what it should have been. But had to pay it to get my stuff. But when opened shipment they were still Non-Working Condition!! All of them!!!! and were in same condition as when they were shipped. I needed what I thought would be working boards.So I paid the driver. Now going on three months later he ships the I don't know how many boards in a fed ex shipment with COD fees of 500 bucks, without an invoice again. I have asked and asked of him for an invoice for previous shipment and current one. But no such luck.

Now would you pay? As far as I know he could be doing same thing or shipping me a brick. Now I have been doing my own business for over twenty years, and have never in my life met and dealt with anyone like this jerk. He puts a good front. I offered to him my to give me my stuff and my money,( that in my book he has stolen from me.) And just call it whatever and move on. He says no! Pay or Don't get your stuff back. At this point, this man has already taken my money and my property.And I am a very upset. He cares less. And what can do, I cant afford an lawer. He does business on Internet and I am 2000 miles away.

What can I do except tell everyone out there beware of this guy. He will take your stuff and never return your calls. Now I was struggling just like everyone to support my family But because of my stupidity and this jerk, its even worse. Maybe if you read this you might call or Email him and tell him what he is doing is wrong, It might help me to get my property and my money from him or protect someone else from getting ripped off.  James Howell James@ doubleclickittofixit.com, www.laptopbgarepair.com, www.d630repair.com, dv9000bgarepair. com, www.hpreflow.com, James Howell 706-307-9689 Thanks Ed Bromme San Diego CA

The true Precision Division, PrecisionDivision.com, Precisiondiv twitter user, Robert Mannarino, ibuiltonline eBay user, precisiondivisionfla, and geeksarenotcool

AUTHOR: Doubleclickittofixit.com - (United States of America)

Yet another review by Robert Mannarino.  Let's focus on the facts as Precision Division enjoys doing so frequently these days.  I am not stating he is a criminal or a thief or even enjoys the Twinkie down his throat, but I do state the facts as they are stated to me and I see.

Fact one:  If you issue a challenge to Robert Mannarino he will take it out on you.  Just ask Bryan Mohr.

http://www.ripoffreport.com/computer-service-repair/bryan-mohr/bryan-mohr-bryan-mohr-bryan-m-f0d31.htm

That is what Precision Division - Advanced Computer Repair of Clearwater, Florida and Mount Carmel, PA will do to you as a customer.  Not only does he do the same to his competition when he feels threatened, he does it to his former clients.  The people who support him, he turns on a gashes them open.  Now I have had my share of people whom have had repairs go wrong.  When you work on over 2000 systems in a year that is bound to happen, but the emails I receive from clients go to a dark personal level of disrespect on Precision Division's part reviewing how he handles the situation.

Fact two:  The reviews posted, negative about me or positive about him, are false.

This user TT is false.  For three months I worked salvaging copper, aluminum, and steel from my former shop and area to clean up and pay bills.  This would mean that six months from this date I had little to no time to place ads, solicit for work, or much else which includes customer service.  If someone called you bet I ignored it since I was shoving concrete in a separator to get out the copper!

Fact three:  I have documented enough to fill a court on him.

James Howell ripped me off too

AUTHOR: TT - (United States of America)

I own a computer repair shop in a small town. I came across one of James Howell's Craigslist ads about 6 months ago. I'm very sorry I called him. I sent him 12 laptops to fix. He charged me over $1000 to fix them all. When they arrived, only one of them worked. The other 11 were WORSE than they were when I sent them to him! My customers were infuriated!

I called James, but he wouldn't answer his phone. He wouldn't answer his emails. He basically took my money and ran. Now I know why he only accepts checks or money orders! He does that so that when he scams you, you have no recourse. It seems to me like James Howell needs to stop worrying about his competitors and start worrying about himself. His sneaky little scams are going to catch up to him sooner or later. The owner of  shop who he has been trashing - Precision Division - has been kind enough to repair half of these units free of charge as a courtesy. So now I have 6 more happy customers, thanks to Rob. But the point is, I paid James to do a job. He had the audacity to charge me for the work, and then send all the units back broken? What kind of jerk does something like that?!

James Howell ripped me off, but it's a lesson learned. In the end, it worked out ok thanks to the generosity of James' competitor.
