First off, this isn't Mike, so the line about defending oneself is not true. Look at the advertisement for Frable Plumbing, it reads "Family owned and operated since 1963", as was stated, which is obviously true as Mike inherited the business from his father.
You did not answer any of the questions I asked, about the alleged alias, about you saying that he showed up at your house at 6 AM, etc. Which blows your credibility and shows that you are just spouting off whatever you can to discredit this company. Concrete evidence does not equal repeating what you've heard other people say. You mentioned a customers name, we looked it up, and found we DID NOT work for this individual; THAT is concrete evidence. Also, the name "Bob Pacchaca from kenects" also is not familiar with us, perhaps more misinformation? And that's a joke saying that consumers have to fear retaliation from Mike, you obviously know nothing about him or his character.
You state that you don't trash talk other companies, but you yourself posted this mudslinging post originally. Take care.

I checked, we have no record of working for a Mr. Wilhelm, so unless you have misspelled the name, we did not work for him. There are more than one businesses with the "Frable" name who work in this area, so it would be easy for us to be blamed if information is misconstrued and passed through the grapevine.
Initially you said Mike showed up at YOUR house for money owed, now you say you work for a competing business, so which is it? Also, please let us know what you claim Mike Frable's "aliases" to be, even just one.
The things you are stating to be true sound like hearsay. Before you attack a man's character, you should make sure what you are putting out there are solid truths. Since you are freely slinging Mike's name around, why don't you mention which company it is that you work for, and your name also?
There is a reason this company has been in business since 1963. If they had burned as many customers as you claim they have, it's pretty safe to assume they would no longer be in business.

First off, this company is family owned and operated since 1963, which can absolutely be proven to be true. Estimates are given as accurately as possible, however reality is that unforeseen problems can occur sometimes which could cause the bill the be larger. This is why it is called an estimate. This business is honestly run and the claim that Mike preys on seniors and single women is laughable, at best. As far as Mike having different alias? That is also extremely untrue and ridiculous. Add to the list of untruths that this company harasses customers for money.
I would love to see proof that this report is not a malicious hoax from a competing business, because these slanderous lies are unbelievable. Frable Plumbing has a large base of loyal customers who will vouch that the company is honest and trustworthy.
