This is the only way to explain why business crime is unenforced, while personal crime is super enforced. I can't understand why all of Texas commissions/boards never enforce the state law, when you call them with a criminal complaint against a company, they always say, its a civil matter. to that i say its a matter of enforcing the law. The business people talk about tort reform, but how can you limit my rights to recourse without enforcing the laws, equally! The state of Texas is an organized crime entity in cahoots what unethical business people

Big Deal -- Private Security Companies Have Been Victimized for Years...

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

I have worked for private security companies in Texas with clients --especially certain real estate developers, who I am positive were organized crime connected. When people wouldn't sell their property --oops, it caught on fire, and the condos or shopping cneter mall was built and life went on...

PROVE IT!

Like a nightclub, anybody with enough money can start a private security guard contracting service in Texas and some guy with no criminal history fronts it. It would make a great money laundering place! No eployee benefits pay out, you don't even have to pay into Social Security, your only outlay for personnel is workman's comp which you wont have to pay and nothing happens, shoulder patches for your company --you can make them buy their own shirts and pants and sew the patch on--various permits and building rent. Bring in a guy to keep track of hours worked and find friends who need security officers and you're in business...

Very lucrative investment for the mob and I know of at least two security companies from places where organized crime allegedly controls everything that happens. Do they have a piece of these security companies? Who knows? I do know they don't like to hire experienced people, especially ex-cops and retired cops with any intelligence.

Best of all, they don't like to hire anybody wth ANY knowledge of Wage and Hour laws and OSHA and Social Security deductions!

About 30-60 percent of private security contractors in the State of Texas are crooked.
Most of the smaller ones are being weeded out by various tax liens and foreclosures and so forth.. The other ones? Well, you work in the industry for a while and YOU draw your own conclusions!

me, TWCC, AIG, insurance company of the state of Pennsylvania, and AIGCS

AUTHOR: Adam - (U.S.A.)

The first commission i will talk about will be TWCC, and the fun thing about them is that they don't care if they get caught doing wrong or letting insurance carriers do wrong.

Background, 11/27/99 i was injured at work, the carrier insurance company of the state of Pennsylvania (a front company), AIG (parent/real company), and AIGCS (claim service)within days the above listed started breaking state and TWCC laws. I made complaints to TWCCs' code and compliance dept. here's where it gets fun, the law calls for a ticketing system with bigger fines and penalties depending on frequency and level of violation, but the commission doesn't use the law, instead they audit the carriers. I believe the audit system works like this, every year or so TWCC counts the number of complaints against each carrier, and if the carrier hits the magic number (200-300 complaints) the commission warns the carrier that they might get a fine if they get more than 200 more complaints during that audit period. So does that make much sense as an enforcement plain. Another cool thing they do is refuse to make public complaints against carriers that have been investigated and found to be true.

The only hearing you can get is a BRC or CCH conducted by the state office of administrative hearing, these guys never want to do anything, example, say you want place fault on the carrier illegal actions and there affect on you, this is what happen to me, the carrier denied my benefits for 3 quarters and i didn't get to a CCH until the middle of the 3rd contested quarter, At the same time i got no help from my ombudsman at all. Texas state law sets up defined duties to a hearing officer of he state office of administrative hearing. The law also describes a a hearing to determent if a carrier has violated the TWC act or other state laws, but when i made this point at my last CCH, the hearing officer claimed he had no jurisdiction.

I will be scanning more back ground information soon, I've been a pro se litigator and this was/is my first real case. It started in state, then went to the fed court, then to the fifth circuit, and I'm back in fed, might be going back to fifth circuit.

I believe the audit system works like this, every year or so TWCC counts the number of complaints against each carrier, and if the carrier hits the magic number (200-300 complaints) the commission warns the carrier that they might get a fine if they get more than 200 more complaints during that audit period. So does that make much sense as an enforcement plain. Another cool thing they do is refuse to make public complaints against carriers that have been investigated and found to be true.

The only hearing you can get is a BRC or CCH conducted by the state office of administrative hearing, these guys never want to do anything, example, say you want place fault on the carrier illegal actions and there affect on you, this is what happen to me, the carrier denied my benefits for 3 quarters and i didn't get to a CCH until the middle of the 3rd contested quarter, At the same time i got no help from my ombudsman at all. Texas state law sets up defined duties to a hearing officer of he state office of administrative hearing. The law also describes a a hearing to determent if a carrier has violated the TWC act or other state laws, but when i made this point at my last CCH, the hearing officer claimed he had no jurisdiction.

I will be scanning more back ground information soon, I've been a pro se litigator and this was/is my first real case. It started in state, then went to the fed court, then to the fifth circuit, and I'm back in fed, might be going back to fifth circuit.

me, TWCC, AIG, insurance company of the state of Pennsylvania, and AIGCS

AUTHOR: Adam - (U.S.A.)

The first commission i will talk about will be TWCC, and the fun thing about them is that they don't care if they get caught doing wrong or letting insurance carriers do wrong.

Background, 11/27/99 i was injured at work, the carrier insurance company of the state of Pennsylvania (a front company), AIG (parent/real company), and AIGCS (claim service)within days the above listed started breaking state and TWCC laws. I made complaints to TWCCs' code and compliance dept. here's where it gets fun, the law calls for a ticketing system with bigger fines and penalties depending on frequency and level of violation, but the commission doesn't use the law, instead they audit the carriers.
