HB Towing John Grandchamp

From the outside HB Towing looks like far superior to there image we all have of towing companies but inside its filled with greed, fraud with no respect for laws, codes or others. John A Grandchamp owner and president of HB Towing Inc will stop at nothing to steal scam or defraud anyone for that old mighty dollar.
He has contracts with Citrus Heights Police Dept. (His dad Joe is a volunteer there) and California Highway Patrol I bet they have no idea of his fraudulent ways or they wouldnt be doing business with him,
Lien Fraud- He is the king when it comes to fraud and lien cars and here are some of his scams:

Backdating liens for the purpose of collecting more money in storage or gaining ownership in a quicker manner to sale the auto for profit.

DMV Civil Code 3972 says you must give your brst effort to find and locate the owner or bank who owns the car All vehicles are sent through the CA DMV computers and its not a PD call nor do the owners inquire about it John Specifically told his employees not to enter out of state vehicles and look for there registration that way he can back dates the lien a week for the sole purpose of gaining ownership so the car can be sold for profit. (Easily proven by auditing his records of out of state liens)

Picks up friends autos that have been stripped down because its up for repo, He picks it up lies about where it came from back dates the lien 4 to 7 days for the extra storage fees he knows it will be picked up when bank the finds out he has it. One of his friends drove his auto up for repo and parked it on the side of HB Towing shop (In beautiful condition), John  lied about it be abandoned and forged the managers signature  from the Watercress apartments were he claimed it was abandoned AND THEN AFTER TAKING POSSEION OF THE AUTO LET THE SAME GUY INTO HIS YARD TO STRIP 80 PERCENT OF THE MOTOR PARTS OFF OF IT and when the insurance company came to pick it up they took one look at it and said Keep it, John then turned around and sold it back to the same guy that dropped it off and stripped it. And there are several more cases then that.
( I have managed to gather from several sources documentation to prove the above is 100 %  correct and match it up to his trucks GPS for that date and time)

For years and years John sold his lien cars to a select group of people some sold for a few thousand others brought in  $3000.00 to as high as $8000.00 a few even higher then that but they were always recorded as being sold between $150.00 to $400.00 which allowed him to screw the state tax franchise board and the IRS AND THEN deduct the false recorded amount from the total tow and storage bill and send the owner to collections (Credit Bureau Associates) for the difference even though majority of the time he sold it for more then what was owed.  In Civil code section 3072 any money collected above the amount of the lien is to be returned to the DMV Lien Sales unit (it never was) Not only did he under report earnings, taxes etc to the state and IRS but he then collected again from the owner who paid the collection agency which in turn damaged there credit for 7 years.  I have a signed statement from John stating Credit Bureau Associates is handling over $10,000,000.00 million in collections for him 75% which are fraudulent.
(I also have a journal of 120 plus autos and what they were actually sold for, how much was recorded it sold for, name and address of buyer and VIN #)
I have actually been in contact with some and they agree with the real price they paid for the car, 100% of the ones I spoke with gave the correct amount which was off by thousands and thousands of the recorded price.

A driver went to tow a car from the handicap parking when he got there the handicap sign was on the front seat John instructed him to open the car and throw it under the seat and tow it anyway.
The CHP suspended HB Towing for 30 days due to the fact when they did an audit and he was overcharging and had to repay thousands.

John Grandchamp has broken every state and federal law possible because of his greed including labor laws and civil rights.

I took my documentation, photos and statements to a retired District Attorney after a lengthy review his conclusion was MINIMUM:  5 years in prison, Thousands and thousands in fines, several hundred thousands of dollars in restitution alone for the illegal liens and falsely reporting and collecting money through the credit agency not to mention maybe millions in the damage done to there credit from his false reporting, State Tax franchise board and the IRS???  He has said before he hides his money in case something or someone tries and sues HB Towing inc. John if you run your corporations even a little like you do HB Towing your corporation will mean nothing in court the judge will see it like it is You think you can do what you want and hide behind it if you do not follow the rules, laws and bylaws your corporation means nothing and your family trust?? Even tougher restrictions.  John A Grandchamp you deserve nothing less then to spend the rest of your life penniless in the streets with nothing, youre a thief and a fraud that even rips off his employees. What is Hailey Bug (Your Daughter who you named your company after) going to think of dad in prison??? Start digging up your money your place on Brickyard and outfall after looking at your re-fi in Feb 2011 doesnt leave much equity and Alabama rd in Herald you financed $417,000.00 out of 600k?



If you have been violate by HB Towing or interested in investigating what I have said and much much more feel free to contact me.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

John Grandchamps at it again.

AUTHOR: Bob - (United States of America)

Mr. Grandchamps at it again, With HB Towing failing miserably he has decided to open a new business with Matt Kellogg and of course named it "Kelloggs Towing Equipment". He knows better then to put his name on anything NO ONE buys anything from Jigger, His name says it all JIGGER and boy is he a JEW #$@^^%$. I heard after numerous letters that went out to all of his clients explaining they may be subpenaed to court they started dropping him like flies. John thinks he can do anything and is above the law Thats why the DMV paid him a little visit and thats also why the DA is investigating him. Theft, fraud, tax evasion this guy needs to be taken off the streets. MAKE SURE YOU BOYCOTT KELLOGGS TOWING EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES and if you don't then you desrve to pay 10 times more for a cheap piece of pot metal from China. The other person looking to get a hold of the author of this Rip off Report you can reach him at Bob.Jonson.916@gmail.com
