*General Comment: Where are his tools?
The sales manager Fred Franks was the one to hire my husband from a competitor company. He would have customers cars towed to other stores to charge them storage fees, give envoices with outstandings estimates for work that wasnt needed therefor the customers couldnt pay and would turn over their titles to him.
We both spoke to Mr. Franks about getting my husbands last check of approx. $1400, we both were told it was in the mail and it never showed. We also discused getting my husbands property, his tool box and tools totaling $50,000 and his honda vehicle. Mr Franks told us he would load it all up and deliver it to us. We waited several weeks with no word. Nov. 2012 we went to the company and requested our property again. We were told his tool box wasnt there and Fred told us we needed to give him time to gather my husbands things and he hung up the phone. I told the manager we were calling the columbus police dept and she immediatly called Mr. Franks and he said to release our car out of impound. He said we would be able to obtain the rest of our things that he would call us with a time and date.
Time went by with no word as to my husbands belongings so i proceeded to call Mr. Franks and he told me he didnt know where the tool box was, I pointed it out to him that hes the manager its his responsibility to know, and all meinekes are under 24 hour surveilance. There was no excuse he could use he just said he wasnt talking to me and hung up.
Its now Feb 2013 and ive contacted channel 6 news and am awaiting our next move from them, as well multiple tool truck guys who have looked for it and requested it as well with the same result as us. My husband has worked hard his whole life to obtain those tools and they are our families life blood. Weve suffered greatly because of this and just want whats ours. We will be going to the columbus police dept to have an officer come with us to obtain our personal property, a check that never comes is one thing, but to keep and hide personal property is against the law!!!! I hope my message rings clear to people like Fred Franks that you cannot break the law and treat people with such dishonesty. I will keep everyone updated with results and thank you for your time.
