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:
