Precision Door Service started in 1997, the brainchild of Brian Tindall. He and his brother Chris and Ben Martin decided to start a franchise and all of them had a gift for finding people with money and talent. We met Ben Martin and he presented Precision Door Service to us. We used our entire life savings to "develop" the entire state of Maryland. As soon as it started making enough money that we could start putting back our savings, Brian and Ben "sold" it to Danny Edwards and Ron Bell. They owed us $172,500.00 plus $50,000.00 developer fee. They only paid us $45,000.00 which had to go to the vendors we owed.

We were left broke, after paying off our creditors for Maryland and had to sell our cars, trucks, my wedding ring, we had the largest yard sale to ever hit our neighborhood. We finally found a lawyer who would take it on a contingency basis a year later, and PDS would not pay us but offered the Virginia Beach market instead.

Ben Martin and Danny Edwards had been the managers of this market and by the time we got it, their rape, rob, and pillage mentality had destroyed the reputation of PDS. Ben Martin had bounced a check with Amarr and they refused to do business with us. We found out after we had Maryland taken from us that PDS was never licensed to be a franchise the entire time we were in Maryland but collected over $80,000 of royalty fees from us.

They also had us pay all Verizon telephone bills directly to them and they never paid Verizon but pocketed the money. Our checks were made out to Newco, and I am positive they never paid taxes on any money and it is well known that they sent the money to Costa Rica. On January 28th, three weeks before the annual stockholders meeting, Brian Tindall, Ben Martin,and Danny Edwards continually called and incessantly bullyed my husband to turn over his 400,000 shares of stock because Brian "wanted his company back", and "wanted to be done with us".

They came up with a phony amount we owed them, and if "we turn over our stock, our debt will be forgiven". They have done this to other stockholders as well. They faxed Michael Tindall, Brian's nephew a letter of termination on us and authorized him to steal $58,000 of our parts and send our money to Florida. Michael stole the parts and sent the money on Monday, Feb 3, 2003 and we recieved the letter of termination on Tuesday, Feb 4,2003.

They are now sueing us in United States District Court, knowing we, again are broke. Ben Martin told my husband, "You will see how we destroy people who don't cooperate". They have broken every law, and have destroyed so many lives with their avarice that it breaks my heart.

I hope the IRS will read this and the FBI. Brian Tindall, Chris Tindall, Ben Martin and Danny Edwards belong in prison. Seven months ago, they pulled the same thing on us and I came up with the money, hoping to be able to sell the market and recover some of our loss of being associated with Precision Door. But they did not want us to recover anything, just punish us for not turning over the stock.

They set up franchises to fail, sell the franchises by dishonesty, terminate the owners or market developers once they get behind at all, sue the owners and market developers, and resell the market, over and over again. The franchises are trained that if they fail, it's because thier call average has to be at least $450.00. That is even if you are called for a remote reset. Danny Edwards told my husband that, "If you get a wrong number, tell them they are the lucky 5th caller and have won a free safety inspection. Once you get out there let them know how unsafe thier door is and failed the safety inspection and get $400.00 to $500.00 on wrong phone numbers". We do not believe in deceiving the public. Brian Tindall told my husband at the stockholder's meeting in Feb, "I'm going to kick your a*s". Ben Martin told my husband "I curse you". Harry Hall told my husband, "If you report me to my probation officer for stealing from you, I'll kill you and your family". Harry Hall is the relative of Brian Tindall who stole from us in Maryland who Brian asked us to hire. He had just been released from prison for embezzlement and could not find a job. We agreed to give him a chance, and keep an eye on him and he got our receptionist Kathy Brown, to set up appointments for him, he use our parts and split the money with Kathy. He made the mistake of telling our sons that worked for us how stupid we were and now, Brian has given him the market that we used our money to set up. He stole over $15,000 from us and his reward is to have the market that was taken from us. They all deserve to go to prison.
