There is absolutely no question that Cal-Ark International/Central Hauling/Arkansas Equipment Leasing/Central Maintenance Corporation is one of the most lucrative and successful organized crime organizations in North American history, as these people have defrauded and ripped off thousands of drivers and hundreds of insurance companies for tens of millions of dollars with total legal impunity. What this truck leasing and transportation group has been allowed to do to hard working, tax paying American system represents a gross failure of our fake a*s justice system.

I was a lease purchase contractor with the Cal-Ark International Transportation Group from 2005 to 2007, during that time I was ripped off and defrauded of nearly $150,000 in phony insurance coverage, vehicles that had been totalled out, stripped of all usable parts and resold countless times, I was subjected to breach of conract, theft of funds from my personal savings account, theft of more than $21,000 in insurance checks on four occasions and my maintenance escrow was charged for the amount of the four insurance checks all of which added up to more than $21,000 combined. I was charged for parts that were not put on my vehicle, services that the companies don't perform (such as test drives) and I was charged double to quadruple for parts and services. I was not paid for thousands of dollars in trips, cheated out of thousands of dollars in fuel surcharges, manipulated into going to recover abandoned vehicles that contained human excrement and I (like thousands of other drivers) was eventually bankrupted out of a truck that I had paid off.

I have reported these activities to both the Attorney Generals, Insurance Fraud Divisions and FBI Offices of the states of Arkansas and Texas, several insurance companies, countless lawfirms and consumer agencies all to absolutely no legal avail. The most legal assistance that I have been able to get was an attorney telling me that I needed to get the signatures of at least one hundred of the thousands of victims of Cal-Ark International Transportation Group's victims to sign a petition to file a class action lawsuit against the transportation group, other than that, these people are still just sitting on the outskirts of Littlerock, Arkansas ripping off just about any and everyone that comes through their program.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Yes sounds like ael/ central hauling

AUTHOR: Mac G - ()

To any one considering coming you need to listen to these warnings. You will loose everything that you have dealing with these people. Don't be here a year they think you have paid to much on the truck to give it back. It takes a check and I have to make sure my family have a roof over there head this company will put u in bankruptcy. Stay away please stay away. These people are nothing more then scammers. I understand freight get slow some time but if they wouldn't wait until u were empty to book you a load maybe they can get you the miles you need in the slow season. If you don't listen and come beware of George Cann will put phony charges on your settlement. This guy will tell u to bend over and let him screw you. They tell you that they have great advisor another lie my daughter can pick up the phone and say bring truck to a terminal shop. Call in and say feel like my tires about to come of guess what they will say get it to a terminal. They shop terminals don't no they right hand from their left. You will get screwed and they will put used parts on tractor. This company is crap

completely agree!

AUTHOR: Furipoffs - (United States of America)

Ael is a rip off. Lying thieving sacks of crap! Once again my truck gets lost in a shop for 3 weeks over a few hours of work and once again 2 months without a paycheck. Well...I'm not taking it anymore. Their gps locators are behind the water temperature gauge. They are easily removed and cause no interruption in truck running =). F*#k ael.

#4 UPDATE Employee

Cal Ark/ Central Hauling/ AEL Scammers

AUTHOR: San - (United States of America)

This driver is totally correct when he says they are scammers. This week will be 3 weeks and I will not receive a paycheck. They run you just enough to make your lease payment and they are not concerned if you get a paycheck. If you take off any days you will not hardly catch up because they ensure you will stay in the whole. My driver friends whom works here had over 3000 miles and that was for 2 weeks because we just had a holiday. His paycheck was 41.01. I received 0.00. You never seem to be able to make a check because they always have an excuse of why freight is slow. Don't have anything major happen to your truck because you definetely will not get a paycheck then. They do scam on the parts. They told me I had a new turbo put in my truck and checked with another mechanic and was advised it came out of wrecked truck and they charged me almost what you would pay for a new one and this one was used. I am on my way out because they seem to not understand that you need a paycheck to live. I have been living off of advances for the last two weeks. I have been driving over 5 years and I made more money during my 1st year. This has been the worst 3 months and 2 weeks of my driving career. This company is unreal.
